Android newbie - which OS best?
Saturday 21st of December 2013
I'm thinking of purchasing my first android cell phone (a cheapie Tracfone LG Optimus Dynamic cuz I'm a grandma that doesn't need a fancy go-getter smartphone yet) and after reading all the ratings on several sites, I'm wondering if it's the best choice to learn Android on. The other choices are badly rated [ZTE Valet, Huawei Glory and Samsung Galaxy Centura] even though they have later Android OSs. OR, should I wait until I can have the latest & greatest Android version (Tracfone's highest right now is 4.1)Thank you for your very helpful answers for this Noob!Grandma Donna

Android 4.0.4 Home Button Problem. HELP
Friday 28th of February 2014
I have a Huawei H868C / Tracfone runs on Android 4.0.4 under developer options I turned on show touches to see why my phone was flipping out. Turns out my home button is being pressed when I touch any where near it on the touch screen. causing apps/games to kick me out. and screen to start tripping, only temp fix i found was to relocation the multi touch in a different spot,/ press power button and continue. its a fairly new phone. got it for christmas. Rooting it is no prob, is there a good apk that will disable home button and give me a onscreen button? or any fix possible.
Music doesn't resume after sleep.
Tuesday 18th of March 2014
I have an Huawei Glory (H868C) Tracfone and it is connected to my Kenwood KDC-X997 car stereo through Bluetooth. It seems to be treating my Car Stereo as a headphone device and I have to play my music manually from my Tracfone. My problem is my Tracfone stays in my car and when I start it up, after waiting for BT sync, it wakes the Tracfone, but the music is on pause. Is there a way to make the, Play Music, player to auto resume playing songs on wake? If not, is there a good music player app that will do thins? Or is it a setting in the Android OS somewhere? Also, I notice this app doesn't play songs continuously and pauses between all songs, even sons that never had them. I listen to a lot of Pink Floyd and most albums play like one long song with special effects as breaks, instead of silence. I have Android 4.0.4 if that helps any.
What TracFone Android Phone should I get?
Tuesday 06th of May 2014
I'm looking at what android phone I should get to use with TracFone. I do like the features that the ZTE Valet has but I see several reviews talk about it having wifi problems so I was thinking about getting the Huawei Glorying or the LG Optimus Dynamic II. What do you guys think I should get, I'm going to have some apps and games on it. or since TracFone lets you transfer a android phone to them, do you guys recommend another android phone that I can use on TracFone.
Boot sound will not play on Ascend Plus/M881
Monday 23rd of June 2014
I'm having some difficulty getting a boot sound to play on a rooted Huawei Ascend Plus (M881) that has been flashed to Page Plus from Tracfone. A bootSound.ogg file exists in the /system/media/audio/animationsounds/ directory, but it doesn't play during startup. (It isn't a "silent" file, either...it's a 3 second chime.) I have tried replacing it with one of my own, with no luck.I have successfully changed the startup and shutdown animations, which are in a completely different directory (/cust/tracfone/us/media) that does not contain any audio files. I copied the .ogg file in there just in case, also with no luck.Any thoughts? Are there any "properties" I can change anywhere that would enable the boot sound if it is disabled somehow? Thanks!
