How to Connect Your Desktop to the Internet Using an Android Phone - Android Authority
Monday 14th of November 2011
Perhaps you don’t know it yet, especially if you’re new to Android: you can use your Android phone to hook up your desktop or laptop to the Web. In this scenario, your Android phone essentially becomes a modem/router of some sort, which you can use to bring Internet connectivity to your desktop or laptop.This can only work if you are subscribed to a data plan with your mobile carrier. If you are subscribed only to a call-only plan, this solution might not work. Also, before attempting to hook up your desktop to the Internet in the method described here, first make sure that you are aware of the charges for using your mobile network’s data connection. Most carriers charge for such service. Some provide unlimited data access, while most others set limits (usually expressed as amount of data either in megabytes or gigabytes). You can easily go overboard and exceed your data limits, you know.What You NeedTo be able to connect your computer to the Internet using your Android phone, you need the following:your PC and your Android phonea USB sync cablePdaNet 3.
How to increase Samsung Galaxy Note 2 battery life
Monday 03rd of September 2012
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7100 comes with a 3,100 mAh battery, which offers it a pretty decent battery life, though it can always be improved if you know how to use it, charge it and set it up.In this guide I am going to teach you increase your Galaxy Note 2′s battery life significantly by doing only some basic things that don’t require any advanced skills.While the device comes with a huge battery, its hardware is very powerful and it can drain it quite fast, especially while being used intensively. Biggest battery drainers are the CPU, display and 3G/4G and considering that it has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display along with a 1.6Ghz quad-core processor, you need to be careful. The Galaxy Note 2 also features GPRS, 3G, 4G, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, Glonass, and NFC, which also drain battery while active.How to smart charge the Galaxy Note 2 batteryThe way you charge your device is very important and it can affect your battery life a lot. Charging it wrong will make it drain quickly and the battery will also last less, requiring a replacement after 1-2 ye
How can I increase my Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 battery life?
Thursday 14th of June 2012
How can I increase my Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 (Android) battery life?I am going to use my Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 (with WIFI and/or 3G) for marketing purposes:It's going to play a movie non stop (without sound) and there are no other applications running except for the movie. I would like to use WIFI and/or 3G to update the movies that are going to run. But the tablet is going to be mobile and onroute where it's not possible to charge the Tablet. Meaning I have around 6 and half hours of battery life before I get the first message that my tablet is running out of juice (we've tested that already, but only at one fixed location not in travelling mode (e.g. constantly looking for WIFI connections)). I would like to increase my battery life somehow... I have read some of the other posts here already. So I know that turning of WIFI or 3g would definitely help. But I need WIFI on to update those movies when we come near one of our Hotspots. I know brightness is another thing and that is automatically already set to half brightness. Is there a way to create a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 1
Android 4.0.4 - How do you disable 4g or USB Mass storage
Thursday 12th of July 2012
I'm new to this android os4.0.4 and cannot seem to find the same options that existed on my os2.3[Droid Razr | 4.0.4][Build Number 6.7.2-180_DHD-16_M4-31 | THU JUNE 14 14:57]In the past you were able to select LTE/CDMA for 4G, and it gave the option to set to CDMA only (3G), this increased battery life exponentially. Especially since I work in a building that puts on their 4G hater blockers at the doors. 3G is the only signal and I need this phone to stop searching for 4G.2ndly - On 2.3 you were able to change the device connection when attached to a computer. I typically set it to "USB charge only". Now it doesn't even offer a charge option but rather 3 media transfer options. It won't charge at all with PC connection.Somebody help me out here, what am I missing or what app will solve this issue?[Mobile Network Settings offered]Preferred Network Mode-Global-LTE/CDMA-GSM/UMTS
How to move music to SD card? (Razr M)
Tuesday 09th of April 2013
I'm sure this has been asked a lot, but I'm desperate.I just got the Razr M a week ago and it's awesome. I set it up to my computer and I had it open Windows Media Player when I plugged it in to my computer to charge it. I tried getting it to sync a few times to WMP and never did, so I gave up. Today I plugged it into my computer to charge and it actually synced!My problem is though I have an 8GB SD card and I have no idea how to get the music files to save to the SD card/external memory. When it comes up on WMP, it says it's saving to the Internal phone memory. They only give you about 3GB of free internal memory with this phone, so I'm not gonna waste the memory putting songs on here when I can just use an SD card. I've tried going to the Storage setting and seeing if I can change it, but there is no option under Internal Memory to do so (that's what the Verizon site said to do). I also tried going to Files and moving the Music to the SD card file, but it didn't work. I got my pics and video to save to the SD card... but not the music.Currently, because my mom is anti-Apple product
How to set USB to charge only
Tuesday 31st of May 2011
I have a ASUS Transformer and need to sync Outlook data by USB under the control of CompanionLink software. This requires setting the USB to "Charge Only" and I canot find out how to do that. ASUS Sync doesn't seem to work either. But I want to make CompanionLink work! I have been posting this question in several places and have asked ASUS, too, but no response!Perhaps this is not trivial... but I had to return a XOOM for the same issue. Boy, I hope not for this one, too.Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions.jonathan7007
Motocast is not working? That or I don't know how to use it.
Wednesday 30th of November 2011
So I got everything set up on my computer with the account and all of that and I got it so that I could locate my computer but now only certain folders are coming up even though I have it setup for pictures to be shared in the settings for my phone and I can see most of my pictures but .gif files do not appear and when I add any file to a folder on my computer which I am browsing on my phone and leave and re-enter it is still not in the folder. How do I refresh the information? And how do I get gif's to appear? Also, When I plug my phone into my computer's USB the menu for Charge only, open folder to view files, etc does not come up. Is this because I am using DLNA? It doesn't come up on my computer either. Please help! Thanks!

How to set up a wireless hotspot on Android w/ PdaNet+
Monday 23rd of June 2014
Being able to hook up to your WiFi network with your computer or tablet is pretty convenient, but what if you’re on the road, or in an area without a wireless network in sight?Well there’s good news — setting up a wireless hotspot on your device, which you can then connect to with your laptop or tablet, is extremely convenient. The feature is available on most smartphones these days, but carriers usually charge around $20 or more each month for a simple subscription to the service.But what if I told you that you could experience the same service for only a one-time fee of $7.95? You’d take it, right? Well hit the break to find out how.Now before we start, let me just inform you of the possible charges you may incur during this process, and how data limitations (by your current data plan) may restrict what you may be able to do.The only up-front cost you’ll be paying is the one-time $7.95 price for the license key to use the application. That’s pretty darn cheap when you consider how much you’re saving rather than paying the (depends on carrie
