Help required with GPS navigation app
Friday 23rd of September 2011
I have recently bought an HTC wildfire and I was trying to get the GPS navigation to work.I can turn on the GPS receiver and my location is correctly identified. When I start the navigation application called `navigation' and symbolized by a blue arrow, I cannot get it to work. It gives me the message `we couldn't find a root to your destination'. Any ideas why the GPS doesn't work and possible remedies?Thank you
Can Someone Help me with my email problem?
Thursday 28th of June 2012
I got the ICS update on my Razr this morning. I have the original Razr, not the Maxx. I get no more emails to my phone, and when I hit the email icon it prompts me to sync up an email. When I try and do so it says that my email address is already synced to my phone. But I am not getting any messages and can't access my email. Everytime I hit the email icon it goes to the same screen to add an account. When I go to the settings and go to accounts and sync, it doesn't show my hotmail account. How do I get this account on the phone now???
Can anyone help me with a volume problem?
Wednesday 25th of May 2011
I just received the new Droid Thunderbolt, love it so far but it is taking me awhile to get used to it (I have had the Blackberry for years). I would like to adjust my volume settings and just can't get it right. I think I am making the changes inthe wrong place. I would like my telelphone calls and text messages at a lounder setting and all other notifications (emails, reminders, etc.) at a very low setting. When I finally get the text message sound at the right volume, the email sounds are very very lound. When I get the email sounds where I want them, the text message sounds are too low. Can someone help?? I know this is very basic, but I am not good with this stuff!! Help!!

HI, just wondering if anyone can offer up any help with a charing issue, i recently brought a flytouch 3 a few days ago and although it has been one problem after another, the worse happened today when i went to charge it and the pin came of the charger adapter, so i can not charge it ( or even use it now).. is there any other way to charge the tablet? or am i best to just order a new adapter.. im also worried the internal charger but might be damaged.. so can i charge usb to the computer ?? or would a charging mat work ? where you just lay the device on one of those chargin mats for it to charge? any help would be great ??thankyou sez
Andoird newby, help required with car stereo connection
Tuesday 18th of January 2011
Hi all, I'm new to all this so please excuse me if this is a stupid question or if its in the wrong place. I am currently looking at upgrading my Nokia 5800 to either the HTC desire or Samsung Galaxy S. What i would like to do is connect the phone to the car stereo via the aux socket and the 3.5mm jack, i.e with a cable not bluetooth. I understand the music will be no problem but i can currently use this method for handsfree calls but it appears this may not be possible with the desire or the galaxy. Can anyone shed any light of whether this is correct and if so is there anything i can do or am i stuck getting a bluetooth headset for the calls. Any help much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Help required with S4(Charging Problem)
Friday 13th of September 2013
Hello folks, I am new here. I have Galaxy S4 from last two months and it was working pretty fine until yesterday. It was showing an option of "HDMI disconnected". Then when I plugged it, for the charging. It wasn't neither getting charged nor it was showing any indication. I tried changing the adapters/chargers, but didn't work. I switched it off and then again plugged it. It just showed a battery icon for an instant then screen was black. When I turned my cellphone on this morning it was fully charged. Problem is why it is not showing any charging sign. Any ideas? Thanking in AdvanceTayyab
S4 Charging Problem
Monday 23rd of September 2013
My Samsung S4 wont charge. Yesterday throughout the day it was saying Dock connected when it wasn't plugged in to anything at all, I fell asleep without putting the phone on charge last night and when I plugged it in this morning it's just vibrating over and over again and wont charge. The phone still has 3% battery on it and when I plug it in it comes up with dock connected, charges for a second and then says battery critically low before repeating the process over and over. I only just got the phone about a month ago on contract, just amazes me how it has already screwed up. I read that it is probably the usb port on the phone but I have never tried to put the lead in the wrong way round as I'm used to these leads. If anybody knows of a fix I would really appreciate it. Thanks a lot! Also whilst having these problems I turned the phone off, then I looked at it again and without me turning it back on it said 'Downloading, do not turn off target' with the android logo underneath and some tiny writing in the top left of the screen. I was worried because it was supposedly downloading

S4 Charging Problem
Saturday 26th of April 2014
I bought a S4 from a retailer specializing in graded phones. I bought a Grade A Samsung S4 and the condition is perfect ie no scratches, plastic stick around the edges etc but came with only phone and no charger. My problem is that I am using the charger and usb cable from my previous S4, the one with the 2A plug however, I'm only getting 460mA from it, so charging is extremely slow. I've tried another usb cable and also tried both cables with a HTC 1A charger but everything gives a reading of 460mA. In battery it says charging (USB) so it's not recognising that the usb is plugged into a mains socket. I've tried my brothers generic micro usb wall charger which shows as a 1200mA current and charging (ac) so i'm kind of lost as to why it's not charging properly with the official charger
