Should I upgrade my phone to ICS?
Tuesday 17th of July 2012
So I figured that since the s2 now has ice cream sandwich available, I should look into upgrading.Doing some research on the internet, I see that it is actually impossible (or at least quite difficult) to go back to 2.3 if I have problems. I've also seen that there have been reports of Ice Cream Sandwich making their s2 have problems such as randomly crashing or the battery runs out really quickly etc.So is upgrading to Ice Cream Sandwich like a fairly routine thing that ppl do and that I should just do it? Or is it actually quite a risky thing and I could seriously stuff up my phone if I did something wrong?Also, if it is risky, is ICS worth the risk? Is there like a massive difference or is it just really just a few UI changes here and there?
YouTube App & Web Page Freezing/Crashing?
Sunday 25th of November 2012
Hey everyone, my first post So this started several days ago: whenever I watch a video on the YouTube app, it will randomly freeze and display the loading symbol. Waiting for it to load never works (I've waited about 5 minutes before with a full strength internet connecton), and the screen turns black if I press the back button. Home button works fine, will take me to the home screen. Same thing on the mobile web page. I've un-rooted the device (I really just didn't need it) flashed the stock ROM for 4.1.1 and updated it, so I didn't expect any issues. Does anybody else have this problem and/or do you know how to fix it? Thanks.

The settings/bookmarks etc are still the same.Any solutions? Running Lite'ning 6.1 with Speedmod T39
Internet randomly crashing.
Monday 01st of July 2013
Hello I am using Samsung Galaxy S3 phone (rooted) and I have this problem with the Internet .Whenever I try to download a file from the Internet directly to my phone the Internet crashes and I can't download it. I tried cleaning the data from the Internet but the problem keeps happening. I also had this problem when my phone was un-rooted and the only way to get the Internet download manager working was to reset my phone to factory settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Internet dependant apps not working
Monday 16th of September 2013
On my samsung S2 i had a recent problem where it kept crashing and then randomly starting back up only when it wanted to. I downloadd the smart launcher to try and fix the problem but it didnt help much. After a while of having to keep restarting it to use it (3-4 days) i just gave up and let lit sit in my room for 2-3 weeks. Only way i could get to use it was when i plugged it into the charger and let it charge up to full and then i could use it for an unknown period of time, after which it would just turn off and id have to take it off the charger again for about a day and then plug it back in and it would start charging again and id be able to use it for another unknown period of time. This was the pre-mentioned 3-4 day time span. So after the 2-3 weeks i chraged it back up again and it seems to work however i cannot connect to google play store at all. Facebook messenger app is also not working, as well as the facebook app. Instagram works for some reason however. Lastly my standard message sending app is not working properly, i cannot see newly received/sent texts on phone, only
Phone won't turn on

I got the HTC One a few months passed, but recently, it has been acting weird. A lot of apps just randomly close and my internet has gotten very spotty lately. But the worst of it all happened today. All of my apps were crashing, so I decided to restart my phone. It shut down, but never started back up.This was about ninety minutes ago. I tried plugging it into the charger (even though it was completely charged when I started the reboot) and the indicator light isn't responding either. Anyone else experienced anything like this? My phone is completely stock. I haven't messed with the OS at all.
LG G pad continuous crashing

Ever sense i took my tablet of verizon service it doesn't want to work right. Even when i run games or apps that do not require internet everyone crashes randomly. it doesn't seen to matter what app i run they all crash. I understand some apps wont run without internet but i have internet at my house and i use that for my tablet and my phone. I can run the same apps on my old Verizon phone that not active without this problem. Anytime i am on the internet on the tablet the page reloads even few minutes without me telling it to and any time I try to stream anything it just keeps stopping because the page reloads. I tried checking all the setting I can think of and i factory reset it without any results
Why does my s5 internet tabs crash?
Tuesday 09th of December 2014
So im a bit annoyed, my samsung galaxy s5 (sprint service) works fine but recently had suddenly had some apps crash a bit. Things that have happened-My default internet (and chrome) browsers have started to have some tabs crash when im surfing the web. They will do it randomly and on rare occasion i will get the "this app has stopped working" message.-Some of the internet based apps i have will have the "this app has stopped working message" which includes maps and youtube so far. I have tried clearing the cache, having everything fully updated and recently factory reset my phone which looked like it helped but has had tabs crashing again. Oh and the tabs will have the websit e then just say, "This tab has crashed. Reload it or try another site." If anyone has any suggestions that would be wonderful.
