Re: Phones that come with a stylus

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I've got a Note 2, and I'm not exactly thrilled with it, but I've found that trying to navigate with my finger is kind of impossible. I'll click the wrong...

Phones that come with a stylus

Are there any phones currently being made or announced that come with a stylus besides the Note lineup?

Re: What should I be paying attention to in 2014?

Z30 is probably what I'd be leaning towards most based on what is currently out there. My boss has a Z10 and I like the OS a lot, although the Android app compatibility still leaves a lot to be...

What should I be paying attention to in 2014?

I'm halfway through my 2 year contract with Verizon. When it is up I plan on moving to T-Mobile and getting a phone off contract. I'm currently using Android, I've gotten it to be tolerable, but...

Re: Why does Android feel so lacking?

For me I don't see too many people really claiming that the N900 is truly a better all around option today, just lamenting the fact that Maemo is still superior in so many ways compared to Android,...

Re: Why does Android feel so lacking?

I don't know about their issue, but I find I have a lot of trouble with swiping in general. I disabled swipe to unlock since it usually took me about 3 attempts. Same thing (and more annoying) when...

Re: Firefox OS

You do realize this thread was started back in January, right? I think the main Firefox thread was started in April.

Re: Why does Android feel so lacking?

So another update. Broke the screen on my Note 2 (from what should have been a harmless <3ft fall onto a wood floor). Had to send it back to Samsung for repair and was without it for a couple of...

Re: Lost sound on my N800

Lost sound on my N800

My N800 has suddenly lost sound output, both to the internal speakers and to any headset I've plugged into it. I've been trying to test in multiple apps, but realized I don't really have that many...

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note

Interesting. I took my MicroSD card directly from my N900 to use in my Note 2 without any problem (and during the first couple of weeks I had it I went back and forth a couple of times).

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Yes, but for this I wasn't looking to change them on the N800, just wanted to pull the file off and use it as a ring tone on my Note. There is some kind of conflict between Advanced Backlight and...

I'd like to pull one of the alarm sounds off of my N800 (the waves crashing one) to use as an alarm on my Android phone. I'm thinking those are on a hidden portion of the internal memory that I...

Re: is there hope for running sailfish os on n900

This comment will show how very little I know about any of this...but why is it possible to get Android to run on the N9 and N900 then? But not the reverse.
