    Unable to send or receive SMS text messages on Tab S5e

    No. I have another messaging app installed, but it's disabled. I believe this is the native Samsung app (blue icon, with remark cloud with three blue dots horizontally placed)

    Unable to send or receive SMS text messages on Tab S5e

    ---note: SMS goes through now with "calls and texts from other devices" enabled on both devices. But, this is a workaround instead if Tab straight to WiFi (and I think my phone has to be on)

    Unable to send or receive SMS text messages on Tab S5e

    Nope. And I'm trying to enable Samsung's "calls and texts from other devices" now with hit-or-miss success. Soft? restarting (Vol down + Power) Table caused the unsent text message to send!?! Yet, I've tried so many things I'm not sure if the "other device" connection was enabled on both...

    No Voicemail Notification S8 and Note 8

    We have two devices. Samsung S8 and Note 8. Both do not display a notification in standby (locked, dark screen) mode when a new visual voicemail is received. No sound. No LED. We have to use our psychic powers to guess if there are any new VMs. Voicemails do pop-up about 15 seconds after we...

    Help Settings for Note 8 External Mic

    Hi. I've got a Note 8, and a Zoom H5. The H5 is a portable field mic and has USB as well as line-out and headset connections. I would like to figure out what I need to do (and what settings to set) to use my H5 as the Note 8's mic. I suppose the main question is how to get the Note 8 to use an...

    Video glitches, jerks, freezes with panning

    Shot some pretty winter scenes, and some dashcam style shots and they are all resulting in video that freezes for a very brief moment, then picks up again sometimes with garbage that looks like pixelation on steroids. Audio records fine. Even though the teeny freezes are teeny, they wreck a...

    Minimize Battery Drain from Weather Programs

    Does My-Cast Weather run constantly and drain the battery, or does it only run when "updating"? I am using ADW.Launcher on my new Droid X. I added an app called Fancy Widgets which also has a weather-checker. I have also installed My-Cast Weather. I set the update intervals on both of them to...
