comment Which files/folders on my SDCard are unsafe to delete manually?
I know in Linux that folders or file names that begin with a period are considered hidden, it would make sense to me if that functionality wasn't changed when they were developing Android.

comment Recipients complain they receive Text Message from me with a half hour delay
Even if it's not a one-time thing I still concur with Matthew Read, my wife and I are both on Verizon with a Droid and a Droid 2 (R2-D2 edition!) and sometimes our texts between one another are delayed or duplicated for seemingly no reason, but it's intermittent and rare.

@James Roth - Really? Sorry about that then, I didn't mean to sound like a prick. I've never encountered that.

@James Roth - Yeah, it really is dumb that Amazon didn't think to add that feature to their store. Amateur hour over there. By the way, do the site a favor and don't forget to mark answers as "correct" if they helped you solve your problem; it reflects in the site's stats since it's still in Beta (it also helps both our rep scores :-D).

comment Disable Missed Call Notifications
Your question just made me realize how bad I want to know how to solve this as well. I use Voice also, and the duplicate notifications are a total waste of time.

comment How do I turn off the cellular radio without disabling bluetooth?
@briankb - I'm glad we found a way to do this as I plan on doing the exact same thing with my Droid once I use my last New Every Two later this year and it will be handy to extend my battery a bit.

From the home screen hit the menu button, select Settings, scroll to the bottom and select About phone, then find Build number and please let us know what build number your phone is running right now. As an example, my Droid is running FRG83D atm.

comment How do I turn off the cellular radio without disabling bluetooth?
@briankb - I was once recommended Autostarts for a different objective, but perhaps it will work for you in this case? I never downloaded it so I don't know what it's capable of, but it purports to allow you to view and block any app that runs on any given intent or during boot.

comment How do I turn off the cellular radio without disabling bluetooth?
Well then I'd try to rename just phone.apk back to it's original file name, and leave telephony.apk.bak disabled. I'm not exactly sure why the guy I linked to at XDA suggested changing phone.apk, but the file names suggest to me that telephony.apk should be what everything else is dependent upon. Also, I'm pretty sure they say that over at CM's site because they expect people to be using their phones to make and receive phone calls and text messages, but since you don't care about those functions this should be fine. I'm glad this worked for you!

comment Make fonts larger in Galaxy Tab
Can you please post what version of Android your Galaxy Tab is running? I don't know when the new 10.1 inch devices ship but they are supposed to run 3.0, while the older Galaxy Tab was running 2.2.
