comment How can I fix the Wi-Fi button or prevent Wi-Fi errors when turning it off and back on?
@Matthew -- I have same symptoms as you do, same phone, too; I don't recall ever being forced to reboot, though. Going into Settings almost always works for me on the first shot (90% of the time). If it doesn't work the first time, a second shot in the Settings seems to always work.

comment How can I prevent my screen from turning off while on a phone call?
I've tried that hand trick repeatedly -- no joy. I set the power button up to hang up because I couldn't wake up the screen to hang up calls...

Part two of your answer did the trick. I guess I'd only tried the volume keys before to "wake it up"; the power button works, too. Thanks!

I guess T-Mo took that option off the Call Settings page...

I suspect this is the same on my phone, only it hasn't gone away with any updates :(

comment Calendar access from apps: only some calendars are displayed
I just re-read the question and I'm suddenly not sure what it is you're looking for. Is the problem that you've created a new calendar and can't see it in non-default calendar apps? Or can none of the calendar apps see it?

Can you see the new calendar on the Google Calendar web page using a laptop or desktop (i.e. not your phone)?

comment Looking for a Text Editor that doesn't truncate a file prematurely
Looks like you can open up existing files via a file manager like Astro. And it does work, so...checkered flag for you!

comment Using Jorte, how can I see which Google Calendar an event is associated with?
I get the colors, but unless I remember which color is which, I'm SOL.

comment How to “report” a mis-behaving app?
The Market app no longer thinks that the IM app is installed for some reason, so I don't have the option to uninstall it. (sigh)

comment Storing passwords on your phone?
Another vote for LastPass, which I just started using recently. They have a great series of videos on their site, letting you experience most aspects of the service without installing anything. I haven't used the Dolphin Browser add-on yet; I'm just using the LastPass app to look up passwords as needed. It has a feature to copy the password to the clipboard so if you're using it all on the phone, it's easy enough to use without the browser add-in. It's also easy to generate random passwords that are secure and non-onerous to type if you're often typing them into a browser on a foreign PC.

comment How to “report” a mis-behaving app?
@GAThrawn - that's an interesting point; I hadn't looked at it that way. OK, so maybe nothing malicious is happening, but it's still dangerous. Not sure what to do, now.

comment Word Processor/text editor Apps?
I went looking for a text editor recently (android.stackexchange.com/questions/1140/…) and had lots of problems with large files. Good luck -- I'll be following the answers!

Even that link was way more painful then it needed to be! Try: m.getjar.com/adp/angry-birds instead.
