comment How can I NOT Save Contacts to Google?
@Izzy Oh, that's nice. I hadn't seen that app before. Think I'll throw that into the answer as a possibility.

Do you get an error message? What does it say? Are you using WiFi or a cellular connection? Please describe the context of your situation in as much detail as possible so we can better help you.

comment Set mobile data cycle OnePlus One Oxygen OS
Actually, there's another post here where someone seems to be seeing the behavior you are, but the "Change cycle" item is actually there way down at the bottom: android.stackexchange.com/a/91834/981 Still sounds like a bug, though.

Sounds like a bug, then. Normally that's where you'd find it on Lollipop. The logic to populate that list must be all out of whack.

Scroll to the bottom of the list of previous cycles. That's where it usually is, but your list is so long it's not currently visible (I believe).

comment How to use paired bluetooth device as Smart Lock trusted device?
@Firelord That seems like a separate issue from the Smart Lock thing, really. Many paired devices connect automatically when in range (the receiver in my car does this, for example) but I don't know how all devices work. Typically with phones and other smart devices I'd have to manually "connect" them for some purpose, like transferring files or tethering, but they won't connect automatically otherwise. From the screenshot it's not clear that the devices are physically in range at the time it was taken; paired devices are always listed regardless of their range/status.

I think you need to have a device actively connected in order to select it on the Smart Lock menu. Have you given that a try?

comment How to undelete an audio file from Asus fonepad 7 tablet?
Further, without being willing to root, you're probably going to be out of luck. Any deep forensics will require block access to the device. You could use dd if you were willing to root, for example, by running it on your device directly.

comment How to undelete an audio file from Asus fonepad 7 tablet?
If you want this to be reopened you're going to need to edit this to be much more specific as to what you've tried, where you're stuck, etc. Your situation is entirely generic at the moment, which is why it's a duplicate of another generic question. Did you try the other suggestions from the linked question? Did you look at other questions in the data-reovery tag, such as Recover Lost Voice Recording on EVO 4G or How to Restore Deleted / Formatted Files on HD Micro SD Card?

comment Where have “predefined SMS messages” gone in Android 5?
I don't know that Android has ever had this. It may have been something HTC added.

comment How to install Flash Player on Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i?
Flash won't install because your device has an ARMv6 processor (specs). Adobe Flash only supported ARMv7.

comment Cpu frequency keep going down by it's own
Is your device getting hot during these points? Processors generally throttle themselves when they reach certain temperature levels, to prevent possibly damaging hardware components. Even if you cranked up the max CPU frequency, if the chip hits its thermal limit it's going to throttle.

Why are you insistent upon trying to put your solution in your question? It is an answer, just post an answer.

If you want to ask your question here, then we need the details here. Using this merely as a pointer to your other question is not something we allow.

comment Google Voice SMS not showing notifications in Hangouts?
Well, in my instance, this looks like it is absolutely the issue that I'm having. I was able to reproduce the exact behavior you've described. What a frustrating bug. Thanks for finding this.

comment How to tell what app or process periodically sends SMS messages?
Honestly, you'll probably be hard-pressed to find anyone (or any software) that can provide relevant help for an Android 1.6 device. Have you tried factory resetting the device? Can you use an old "dumbphone" instead? If it's just an emergency phone, it seems like you wouldn't need any apps, and your plan (as described) doesn't include data for maps or anything of that nature.

comment Transfer SMS message history, without Google account
This actually does not appear to be "free" in the sense that @bignose is talking about (libre/open source), or if it is I cannot find the source code anywhere. It is only "free" in the sense that you need not pay for it.
