    Default Re: Overwhelmed New Android User

    I am an Android newbie here as well and I have been reading a lot in the forums and online. I need help with something. On my iPhone there were options for your notifications to appear at the top of the screen or right in the center of the phone. On Android I only get my notifications at the top of the screen on one line. Is there a way I can adjust my notifications so I can put them in the center of the phone and more than one line of the notification appears? I have checked all of the settings and I cannot find anything anywhere.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    You just need to slide the notifications down from the top to reveal expanded notifications. Just put your finger at the top and drag down.

    Some SMS programs will display in the middle. Go SMS does this but only for your texts.

    Okay then let's say they're both easy. It took me 10 minutes. If it takes any less to break the iPhone then good for us.

    Feel better now?

    As for backing up your phone, the type of functionality that you are looking for sounds like everything that Kies does.

    As horrible Samsung Kies is as people say, it is great for backing up contacts, messages.

    I'm not sure if it does apps, but I don't think it's necessary because Google Play pushes apps to your device.

    As for videos and music, I just manage that manually by dragging files in folders. I definitely don't let Kies touch that.
    Good point. I hate Kies but it does this.

    Thanks for the response. What other SMS programs do this? Go SMS just seems to let me send texts to other people using that app which I am not interested in. Is there an app that can go over the current messaging app and allow me to see the texts, notifications in the middle of my screen? I ask because when I am at work my phone stands near me and I just read the text, notifcations as they come in. With Android I cannot do this right now and it is annoying me.

    There is a visual voicemail app through At&t in the Play store. I installed it no problem and it works just like the iphone one. It even brought over voicemails I had on my iphone and I didnt expect it to do that.

    GO SMS does this very thing. It may require you to define it in the preferences but I use it all the time and my texts pop up in a little window that I can swipe through and respond to.

    Must be nice! Rooting my old Incredible wasn't so bad, though still not as quick as jailbreaking my iPhone. Rooting my Rezound was no quick task either. Maybe I had some bad experiences then?

    I just went to my contacts and noticed everything is doubled. Obviously they are saved to the phone & sd card. My Q, is it better to have the contacts saved on the phone or to the sd? I don't sync my contacts with Gmail. I use Yahoo mail.

    Speaking of Yahoo email, I've been getting all my emails like the next day. What do I have to do in the settings to make sure I get an email at the same time it was sent to me?

    Thanks!

    The Problem is you're using yahoo mail. You may have to look for a yahoo phone. Lol. Just kidding. Gmail is better and syncs better.

    Go to YouTube and search for it. There are lots of videos that show you step by step instructions.

Go here: Adobe Flash Player 11 11.1.115.20 [Android 4.x] - APKTOP and use the Download from APKTOP link towards the bottom, make sure you have Unknown Sources enabled or it won't install.
