comment Help! 25 unkown apps messing with my phone
Have you checked with How to know app name by UID already? Maybe that gives a clue.

comment Stop Android from displaying “Install blocked” prompt
Looks like you've caught some malware that tries to install all kind of stuff (follow the link for details). A factory-reset will certainly clear that, but that would mean losing all your data along the way. You might wish to check our most frequented malware questions for alternatives.

comment Geometry Dash custom songs download location
Sure it was. If that were not an option, I'd written an answer instead of a comment :) I cannot verify that (not using the app), hence I only left a hint to the most likely cause. And no, ADB would also need root for that. Though you could try adb backup, and then investigate the resulting .ab file (see Is there a way to look inside and modify an adb backup created file?).

comment Geometry Dash custom songs download location
Wrong, Matt. Those contents are not "hidden" in that way (which would mean names starting with a dot, like .hidden), but by OS/file-system permissions. Nothing ES can do about that unless your device is rooted. If /data/data would be really empty, that would mean your device was just factory-reset and not booted up after that :)

comment MMS from Unknown Numbers and from “Contacts”
Could also be your carrier messed up something. If you get those MMS frequently, it might be worth testing that by using a "dumb phone" for a little while; if they turn up there as well, that'd be a strong indicator for this theory. If that can't be done, asking the carrier cannot hurt: they should be able to tell where those MMS really originate.

Related: Where Android apps store data? And sure, /data/data appears to be empty unless you check it with root powers :)

comment Help! 25 unkown apps messing with my phone
@Anthony the "number" would be the "UID" of the app, which no longer can be resolved to an app name with the app removed (so this makes sense). It also could be a native system process (not being an app), though that might rather be bundled into "Android OS". Also note the icon being the same as for these two, which again indicates it might be one of these two. What irritates me is they don't have an amount of data associated, but are marked "restricted" instead. Why show something in data usage that used no data?

comment Wifi doesn't reconnect to known network
If WiFi was before switching to airplane mode, it should be on after switching airplane mode off. To minimize steps, you could utilize an automation tool like Tasker, to place a shortcut for a task on your homescreen – then it would be a single tap.

comment My Music Won't Appear on my OnePlus One
Have you tried whether other music apps can see your files? If they don't, it might be worth clearing cache and data of the media library, to force the media scanner to entirely rebuild it. Also watch out for any .nomedia files in the path to those files.

With "offline" you mean "no network" – or "powered off"?

comment Help! 25 unkown apps messing with my phone
@GokulNC though that wouldn't explain the slowing-down and closing of other apps. Still, that might be a different unrelated thing; uninstalled apps make sense with those screenshots. // Anthony: Did you uninstall a bunch of apps lately? Have you tried restarting your device and see if those "number candidates" still turn up?

comment Listen to text messages
@TamoghnaChowdhury the linked question is rather discussing specific apps for that (yeah, I'd VTC – but as it's locked one cannot even flag it), so maybe you want to answer with some more details? (I've just rephrased the question to avoid off-topic VTC, so your answer would perfectly fit the OP's intention :)

comment Android OS background data usage
First thing coming to my mind are OTA updates – but 4 GB would be far to much for those, even if it were full updates. Still, you could check that. OTOH, those screenshots seem to be from an LG phone running something before Kitkat (4.1/4.2 would be my guess), which makes a sudden OTA quite unlikely. Maybe you could edit your question and add brand/model of your device as well as Android version running?
