Screen unlocks when receive a call

When I receive a phone call, my phone automatically unlocks the screen. This is a problem for several reasons, but the biggest problem is that my no-led app doesn't work because when the screen unlocks the app thinks that I've seen the missed call and doesn't show that I've missed a call. Is there a setting that's not set right or is there a problem with my phone?

There is so many problems with this phone.. I finally said enough is enough.. Was a great phone until the update.. Just so you know you can go to Verizon and tell them your sick of all these issues and they will give you a choice of three Android phon...
bid you well

after you type something on the keyboard in landscape mode, is there a way to hide the keyboard
7 months later.....

If you switch from the swype keyboard to android keyboard there is a "done" key.

Otherwise.... just rotate the phone back to portrait mode.

Message Threading

Can someone help turn it off? I can't seem to find the option to change that. I thought there was a way to.
I dont think there is. Thats just the way text messaging is on this phone.

Its new news to me if it can be changed.. πŸ˜•

Video out capabilities?

does any one know if the Mesmerize (U.S. Cellular) has a video out function, or if there is an app out there that i could use to watch the videos on my phone on my TV? My TV has a usb port on the back, and i can't seem to figure out if i can actually hook my phone up to it and have a viable video playback. Thanks.

Recommend arooting application for fascinate?

I researched some on the internet. There seem to be a lot to chose from.

Which one is the best though? And the easiest? Will I have to hook my phone up to my lap top to root it? And how long does it usually take to root a phone?

My reg. Internet is slow and my lap top is old.

Thank you,

Using z4root to gain root access to mesmerize, and other questions

Hi all, great forum! I am a little confused and i am hoping someone can help. I had been reading on adroidforums.com that z4root was the easiest/safest way to root a Galaxy S, and just want to double check something. When i went-a-hunting for the z4root.apk (its not in the marketplace anymore), i found it, and many references to how easy it was to use it to root your Fascinate with Froyo. Are there more than one version of z4root? I dont have a lot of interest in risking a 2.2. upgrade, i will just wait with the rest of the world for US "Snaillular" to release Froyo*. Can anyone email me or point me to the version that they have seen work on a 2.1 Mesmerize? Thanks a bunch! I also have some other general questions.

1) I just got this ...
NoLed didn't work for me but found one called missed calls by anno and it has sound alerts for missed calls and text.Works great have set for every two minute alerts if i miss call or text.

Fascinate update

I got mine and I am just glad that I have a calander that works now. I have not and have no plans to "root"the phone. I am very pleased and happy with the update. It is not 2.2 it is a "bug" fix.
Just out of curiosity why do you not want to root your phone? Not trying to say that you should, just asking for curiosity sake.

Bloatware Alert

Yes, I'm sure Verizon wants to push more bloatware and update their current bloatware. I'm sure there's not many fixes or updates to the phone(s).
That's the worst part about Verizon, forcing apps and software that people don't want. Wonder how the iPhone will manage?

I can see it now: attention Verizon customers, we will release an iPhone update that will give you VZ Navigator, Twitter, VZ ...

Data tethering

Is VZW going to charge extra for data tethering or wi-fi hotspot?
Of course they charge for it... its verizon 20$ a month for the hotspot and at the moment there is no tether possibility
Once it gets 2.2, it will most likely be an extra $20 for tethering just like every other carrier requires money for tethering.

The only exception is the Nexus One because it is carrier unlocked so they can't control the software.
you can get away with it for free... its just risky.

Thinking of ditching my iPhone 4 for the samsung fascinate...any thoughts?

I've had the iPhone 4 for 3 months and while it's an amazing device it seems to drop a lot of calls. It seems that android has really caught up in the last few months & I really really like the look of the fascinate...

Any thoughts on doing this? I only switched to AT&T (from Verizon) for the iPhone a year ago. Most of the apps that I use are now in android. Oh & not interested in any of the other droid phones (X is too big, don't need a slide out keyboard, incredible is getting a little old in the tooth, etc...)

I would appreciate any advice!!
I have had my Fascinate for two weeks now and I thoroughly enjoy. I just cant stand the bing integration, I rather have Google, but all in all its a solid device with Android 2.1

Found any good apps?

This board seems dead, but I'll post this anyway.

Runner buddy, works with walking too. And my fitness pal are two applications I like and their FREE!

I've also got an anti virus I like. It's just called anti virus I think. It's got a yellow and white pill as its icon.

Slacker Radio is great when working out because you can choose your own genre of music! and also run the fitness ones in the background. and if your into games Replica Island is great free game its fun and addicting! now im a history buff so the Today...
