comment local headphone enabled FM radio app for nexus 5 (no internet needed)
I have seen an unbranded headset with in built radio. It was powered by a pair of LR44 button cells. The interesting feature about it is that while making calls, the radio stops and allows user to hear the call. The radio resumes at the end of the call. I am not sure how this behave when a music is played in the phone. You may try using these kind of headphones as an substitute.

And if all other apps lets you down, you always have automation apps like Tasker.

comment Does Samsung Galaxy Grand Support USB OTG?
Unfortunately that's true in India. Samsung says in its warranty agreement that warranty will be void, if it detects changes made to its software. There could be a chance if in such cases you could flash the original stock ROM before claiming warranty. However, I am not sure whether there are QFuses/bootloader unlocking etc are involved which would inform the service centre that you had attempted to root.

comment Nexus 4 problems when charging
I am getting a similar experience with my Nexus 7 (2012 Wi-Fi only) and I observe it happened exactly after 4.4.2 kitkat update. I plan to downgrade it to 4.3 to check by this weekend. If you can you too can try downgrading it and have a try.

comment how to safely remove usb storage?
In my unrooted stock Moto G running 4.3, I can access my USB pen drive by using an USB OTG cable. I use ES File explorer. I do not find any options to safely eject/remove the drive neither in ES File explorer app nor in settings->storage. Without safely ejecting, the drive is not detected again unless I restart my phone. Any ideas?

comment Part of touch screen is not working
There is an option in Settings->Developer options->Show touches which when enabled will show a blip on the places where you touch. Try enabling to see whether you could see the blips in the area that you reported not working.

comment Google Play deducted extra Rupee 50 after first-time Play Store purchase of an App/Game. Why is that?
With my experience PayPal, I have seen the reversal for my account. Probably it might take some time. I also stumbled on this Q&A which concurs with my view.

comment wave hand & lock phone automatically
You could use automation apps like Tasker to use proximity sensor to do this. But the problem will be that it will get locked/unlocked at unwanted situations (like while in bag or pocket).

comment how do i deny a caller the option of leaving a voicemail?
In my view redirecting a call to voice mail is a feature provided by the carrier/service provider and the phone plays only a very small part in it. The part that the phone plays is to inform the carrier that the user cancelled the call. To prevent a call to reach voice mail, it has to be answered. And to send it to voice mail, it has be either cancelled or unattended. Hence I doubt any app or software solution could help.

comment Can I root my Nexus 5 without a custom image?
TWRP by itself is not an image/ROM. It is a custom recovery feature with which you can apply an image/ROM. With your words, I suspect you are bit mixed up with terminologies. State your requirement in plain English and that might help. :)

comment Can you reprogram the motorola-droid-razr-m screen buttons? Does it require Rooting?
Button Saviour comes in two flavours. Button saviour (non root) as the name says does not require a root access. Button saviour (root) requires root access to perform more tasks that its non root version cannot do.

comment How do I find out my SIM number?
Dialling *#06# shows the phone's IMEI number (doesn't work on tablets which do not have GSM radio) and not SIM's number.

comment Phone unlocking ideas
I am not sure whether this will work, but just worth a try. Use OTG cable and connect an external USB keyboard to punch in the PIN. Also you can try using an USB mouse to simulate touches with its left clicks.

comment How can I display my maps (from maps.google.com) on Android?
I didn't capture the screen, as I said I took it from how.to.cnet.com. my phone has maps of version 6.x and there was no further update. Once went home, I noticed my nexus 7having maps 7.3 doesn't have my maps. However, I was able to see my previous searches and places, but no saved maps. After searching in internet, I saw this page, which says this feature is removed.

comment Is there no option to turn off cell broadcasting messages in HTC Desire 500?
As I learn from Vodofone's support page, I understand that this is an issue in the ROM. Either you may have to check whether any software updates are available, or to demote to a lower version or try a custom ROM to solve this issue.
