    Default The "Help! How do I..." Thread

    I don't see a thread for asking simple questions, so I'll give this a shot.

    As for my simple question, I am new to Android and find the volume rocker on the TB way too easy to adjust accidentally. The ring/notification volume on my phone keeps getting turned off while in my pocket. Is there a way to turn the rocker off entirely and just lock the volume?

    There is a no way to do that unless there is an app in the market that would lock your volume buttons.

    Is there a way to have your email messages shrink to fit on the screen? Right now I have to scroll around the screen to see an email because its too large. My iphone used to shrink my emails to fit on the screen. Thanks in advance!

    My volume rocker buttons don't work when my phone is locked (by pressing the lock button on top of the phone). I have become accustomed to using this and it is almost an automatic response for me.
    I just testing letting the phone go to sleep itself and as soon as the screen times out, i am no longer able to use the rocker.

    Great Thread Idea!!

    Here's my question..When I turn my volume down to vibrate, it only vibrates when someone is calling me. Is there a way I can set it to vibrate when I also get texts?

    In both apps just hit menu then settings in there you will be able to change the notification sound.

    I'm not sure you can do it without either an app or computer. Easiest way... Just download Astro File Manager from the Market. You can then look on your sd card. It probably went to the download folder. Press and hold, click edit, then delete.

    That's a little stange that the OS doesn't have a built-in way to delete files.

    Is there anyway to fix the touch settings? I can turn the vibrate on and off, but the screen feels SUPER sensitive to me. It's probably the fact that I'm coming from a versa, but is there any way to make it a bit less responsive? (Crazy, I know)

    I can't seem to find where to turn off the vibrate function for when the phone connects... It used to be in the dialer>settings, but not anymore...

    Some custom roms have built in file manages but I'm pretty sure the standard os doesn't have one. I could be wrong... It happens a lot according to my wife.

    OK, here is one where I am pretty sure I know the answer, but just for grins...

    My app list is crowded with all sorts of junk that I'll never use, yet I don't seem to be able to delete the trash. Is there any less obvious way to decide I really don't want a blockbuster app loaded on my phone? Or did someone get paid extra to make us deal with it forever?

    There's a great widget in the app market called "Gmail Unread Count" - just put that on your homescreen rather than the app shortcut. I don't think there's a gchat/Talk equivalent, though, and I don't use Handcent so I can't help ya there.

    everyone's talking about battery life percentages. When I go into Settings>About Phone>Battery I just see a meter measuring the battery life. How do I switch this to see an exact number.. i.e. 37%?

    There is no setting for this. You have to download an app that places the percentage in the status bar. Go to the market and search for battery and you'll see plenty to choose from.
