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.

comment How to fix failed CM install on Moto G?
Why are you insistent upon trying to put your solution in your question? It is an answer, just post an answer.

comment Android reverse tethering is not working?
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.

What is the "above given suggestion"? This question is independent of any other posts on the site: we'll need a link or some other context in order to understand what you're referring to.

comment How to Update Telegram on Android?
Where did you download it from originally? Generally, the app store you got it from will provide the updates. If you installed it manually, you'll probably need to update it manually as well.

Providing a link to apps that you recommend would make this a more useful answer.

comment Rooting My at&t phone (HTC)
Why are you under the impression that rooting your current phone would prevent you from getting a new one at some point in the future? Is it under some kind of lease or something?

comment Browser opens play store when tried to load certain link
Sounds like they've got some kind of redirect in place because they want you to use their app instead. If they redirect all Android browsers to a market:// link then it'll try to open the Play Store.

comment NullPointerException, getPhone error when trying SKD-21, Messages displaying on Samsung Galaxy s4 after update to Lollipop 5.0.1
Do you have SoundAbout installed? It looks like the error is coming from that package.

comment How can I know the exact number of downloads for an app on Google Play Store?
The duplicate explains what the options for an end-user are, but note that questions about publishing to the Play Store or otherwise using it in a development capacity are outside our scope.

comment Stream music from PC (Grooveshark or Spotify) to audio receiver or Fire TV
Your first question appears to have nothing to do with Android. For your second, Google turns up instructions for using Spotify with Fire TV pretty high up. Did you try that? Have you tried anything else yet?

comment CNBC.com: Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (Kitkat4.2) CNBC Video not Playable on Unrooted Galaxy Tab?
Are they Flash videos on their website, or are you using an app? If it's the former, Adobe dropped Flash Player support for Android devices in 2012. Anything running Android 4.1 or later is officially unsupported, so you'd have to try their manual installation instructions, but the only builds they provide are rather old (6 versions behind desktop). It also won't work with the Chrome browser, if you happen to be using that.

comment Can I change or add to the power off menu in Android 5.1?
Your only options are likely root + Xposed (very early in development for 5.1) or a custom ROM. The power menu is generally not configurable.
