    Depending on what you're running, and what you're running it on, go to settings/apps/all, select Facebook, and change permissions.

    Is it a N4 or N7? Either way, keyboard settings should be on the bottom left somewhere, check to see if everything is the way you want it, down there under the hood.

    What do you mean, your tablet is isolated? And is your home WiFi password protected? ( and it may be just me, but I like Firefox better....)

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone. I have set up a reminder ringtone in my calendar. When this ringtone goes off to remind me of something on my calendar, how can I immediately silence my phone?

    I believe one tap of the power button should do it.

    I have a question. How do I post a new thread? I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 for MetroPCS Dual Core processor. I really love the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I want to buy it, but it is not avaialble on MetroPCS. I would have to get from Sprint, since they offer unlimited data. I want the Samsung Note 2 for really web browsing as well as phone calls. Is the Note 2 faster than the S3? Should I buy it from Sprint and forget about MetroPCS? Please someone help. Thanks...

    Some phones you can configure silence when you flip them over. I have an S Blaze, it works on it. Explore settings. It is the first thing you do when you get a new de
    device. Explore all the settings, you learn most of what you need to know that way. Explore, dont try to remember, and later surprise your self how much you remember. Explore. I've observed, albeit a small sample, that folk ignorant dont know enough to harm their device; it's the folk who believe that they know enough who are dangerous. Explore.

    Most system apps can be disabled. Maps, local, currents, wallet, messenger, g+, even Google search. Nothing SHOULD be damaged, but check here for the ones you want to disable.

    I'm not familiar with the Galaxy S3, but as for any devices, maybe try flashing stock to reset everything? That's a guess, please do research before trying anything I recommend. You should navigate to the page for all things S3 on the forum. They will be able to help you there. (sorry, no link available. I'm still trying to figure that out with the AC app)

    As with most new devices, tap to settings/apps/[app you want to move to SD card] and there should be an option to "move to SD card" if the option isn't available, I would recommend trying to rid your phone of bloatware.
    Any Bloatware removal app or tool?? Widfire S

    Hello,

    I am not sure if this is ok to post my question here... am a newbie

    I have a Nexus 4 , created a Google plus account, and took some pics that were uploaded to that account.

    I have deleted them off the google plus account , I had to log into my PC to do so, but I cannot delete them when I go into the account on my phone, nor can I delete the instant upload pics in my gallery.

    Help please?... and believe me, I really need a step by step version... I have no idea about phones.. obviously... :-)

    I should also note that I have tried to look into my settings , but there is no 'account and sync' area I can see... only accounts under the settings menu on the Nexus 4. I have my google account (not the google plus account) just there.

    I fluked it and disabled my picaso app.. still no joy.

    all help would be appreciated .

    Paul.

    Hello everybody; I hope i'm in the right place of this forum to post my question ..
    I'm into shifting to android world for the first time, and never experienced the work or use of any android device. Now that i'm going to use an Android smart-device, I know that I have to re-purchase all the apps I had purchased on my iPhone. i'm just concerned about the bookmarks I have on my current iPhone apps, particularly the ones I have in my LDOCE app (Longman Dictionary of contemporary English). If I bought the upcoming Galaxy s4, how could I transfer all the bookmarks? Also, is there any way to sync the accounts I have for the apps i'm going to purchase?
    thanks

    Try holding down your finger on the drawer to long-select, and then drag them to the trash can that should have appeared in one corner/side of the screen..? But do you means drawer, or folder? (Either way, this method should work.)

    Mind posting screenshots? I got lost reading your post. :/ also, for most android devices, under each individual account is the 'account and sync' option.

    As far as I understand, apple and android run on different systems (obviously), so the apps run in different formats. Because of that, I'm very sure that importing/exporting bookmarks (unless they're saved online in the app database) would be more trouble than it's worth. If your dictionary app does have an online account that you have/had to log in, check under the settings for 'save bookmarks online' or something of the sort. If the bookmarks are saved to your phone offline, and can't be put online, then I'm afraid you'll have to input them all over again by hand.
