This is not a direct solution, but a workaround. You could forward the message (but not send it); this is a feature the stock Messaging app supports. When you forward a message, it puts that message into edit mode, as if you were sending a new message. From here, you can select the text that you want to copy.

If you are not rooted then Shywim's answer is correct. However, if you have rooted your device you can install the Xposed framework. This allows you to install modules that tweak various aspects of Android. The module GravityBox (KK) for kitkat and (JB) for Jelly Bean, which you can install via the Xposed Installer has an option "Allow Any Widget" for ...

The only way to add more widget is to install an application that allow their widgets to be used on the lockscreen. Developers need to specify if their widgets can be used on the launcher, the lockscreen or both. So, if a widget is available on the launcher but not on the lockscreen, I'm afraid that you can't use it on the lockscreen. (But you could mail ...

From Google Play Store application: Go into Settings Uncheck Auto-add shortcuts That will prevent Google play store from creating shortcuts to the home screen each time a new app is installed.

Follow these steps: Open Contacts. You can reach this from the contacts shortcut in your app drawer or home screen, or via the contacts tab in your phone dialer. Press the Menu button. Select Import/Export. Select Export from SIM. Click Select All, or manually tick each contact you wish to copy to the phone. You may be asked where to copy the contacts to; ...

Yes, software tweaks have a massive effect on image quality, and the htc sense version was optimised for you sensor, whereas the cm app wasn't, this is the difference between a well optimised app written to play to the strengths of a specific platform, and a general app written to give a moderately good experience on average. This same thing can be applied ...

When you have any keyboard open to enter text into an app, you should see a keyboard icon among the notifications. Click this to open the input method chooser, then select AnySoftKeyboard from the list. The checkboxes in the Language & keyboard settings only control which keyboards appear in this list.

Those permissions (call, SMS) are in most cases used for "quick-access-widgets/shortcuts" the launcher provides. To create a call widget for a contact, the contacts need to be read, which again might need the account data in some cases to retrieve them. So all those permissions are obviously making sense in context of a launcher. Of course this does not ...

From HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless)'s FAQ (I know it's a different device, but it's same for most HTC phones), What is Polaris Office? Polaris Office comes pre-loaded on the phone and can be used to open and view office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) received in email as attachments or stored on the SD Card. [...] (Emphasis mine) In other words, it's ...

I think it shoud be in your lockscreen settings and there should be an option to disable or enable status bar on lockscreen. My phone has it I think yours should have too. Its a privacy keeping feature.

I have (or rather had, until a few minutes ago) a Desire C, with SD card, but photos storing on internal Memory. Unfortunatly, the previous suggestion is no option in Desire C, as there is no "storage" option in the camera app. The phone should, but does apparantly not always, default to storing pictures on the SD card. What I did to try and solve this ...

Short Answer : Yes These are just apps and you can disable it.But, when the app(any app), for example the app need to update and you cannot update the app when it search for Google play(for example) to update and you need to new market for update the app. also, as you said : GMail (this is my biggest concern ATM) Chrome Google + (that annoying '...

Ok after struggling for about a week, I found that selecting "Show Large Dial pad" from the menu in the phone app showed the list making it possible to call others as well. I now need to find how I can see more than two at a time in the background list and shall update this answer once I find.

Sense is made by HTC for HTC so no you can't put it on other phones. That said, I recently read an article that Blinkfeed and some of their other cooler closed source apps are going to be made available on the play store for other devices later this year. Looks like Blinkfeed specifically is already avaialable. Hope this helps. https://play.google.com/...

Try installing a new launcher app (it really doesn't matter if you want it or not, you'll only need it for a few seconds) from the Play Store. Once it's installed, press the home button and Android should prompt you to choose a home app. Choose the one you want, select "Always", and then you can uninstall the launcher app you just installed.

With Textra SMS you can copy selected text

I copy entire message and paste it as a reply. And from there I copy what I need. Mostly passwords. Then I remove rest of the text so it won't stay as a draft.

You can use a third-party launcher app like Nova Launcher. Nova will let you scroll vertically or horizontally via Nova Settings > Drawer > Drawer Style.

I might not be 100% right, but as a launcher I think the permissions are for the following: Directly call phone numbers: If the launcher has its own Dialer, you need to give it permissions to be able to do calls, else you would end with a dialer that doesnt dial. Access mail information, read your text messages (SMS or MMS): Same as above, launchers many ...

I emailed HTC and this was there response in case anyone is interested. "I understand you have a question about Live Wallpapers for your Android device. I would be more than happy to assist you with this device feature inquiry. You mention that you would like to know whether a developer would have access to the area where you choose the wallpaper or ...

Use the Google Play app called Landscape Wallpaper; it works. I think we can't have the scrolling effect because of the "carousel" effect of the panels.

I have a HTC One X too, and I hadn't noticed yet that wallpaper scrolling is not working anymore. After some searching in the settings, I haven't found the solution to your problem. So I think that I have to conclude that there is no option to restore this functionality. Reverting back to previouse Sense versions is not an option as far as I know. Rooting ...

I have an HTC 10 running Oreo and on that you can change the picture folder to the SD card using the options in the camera app itself. Pull down the two bars at the top then scroll to the far left and you will find 'settings', scroll down (it isn't obvious that there are further settings below the four shown on screen), simply change the setting for '...

I have a HTC Desire and in my case non of the other answers worked. But I solved it in his way. Do not go into the camera app settings. Go into the general phone settings. The path is then... Settings/Storage Here I was able to define the default writing media from internal to SDcard. This includes also the camera app. Now my pictures can be saved either ...

In some cases AppBrain does not check app compatibility restrictions correctly when deciding to offer the update. E.g., I have Android 4.0.4 (CM9) with the Google Search app version 1.4.1.299849 installed as a system app (included in gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip). AppBrain shows that an update (version 2.6.7.721924arm) is available for this app, but when I ...
