Q: question re downloading to a smartphone

Given the wide diversity of data connections people get on their smartphones, I was wondering if developers who know they will download apps, images, movies, etc to phones have any guidelines or website forums specifically addressing considerations like:
what's the largest file you should attempt to download?
what considerations are there for servers used for downloading?
Are there various protocols that are better/worse for performing large downloads? or,
do different hosting services use different time-out parameters that would cause large downloads to fail?
I'm OK if you point me elsewhere or engage on one of more of these specific issues.

Preferred Solution: question re downloading to a smartphone

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 smartphone, and am trying to download photos from it to the harddrive.

Have installed the Samsung software and when we hook up the phone to the computer we hear the device connect sound but it does not show up as a drive.

Have also hooked up the mini SD card via a hub but the pictures I want are on the phone internal memory.

Nothing shows up in Computer as a drive and the USB's drivers are all up to date

Can anyone help us as please as we are now at a loss as to what to do.

A:Problem downloading from smartphone

You don't need the Samsung bloatware KIES to access the data on the device. Remove this software and just plug the smartphone, Windows will automatically install the MTP drivers (provided the device is in MTP mode, NOT in image/KIES mode).

Hi guys,
My wife's Galaxy was hacked and sent emails out to her entire contact list.
The message contains a link that may provide a clue to who did it.
Is there a way to possibly isolate and open the link to view it without letting whatever it is destroy/spread/etc?

Wondering......My parents have a super slow computer. They are wanting some new screen savers and other toys added to their computer. I was wanting to know, can I save such things to a disk and download them on their computer? Or is there anything special I should know about in order to do this. It would make things faster for them instead of direct download from Internet to their computer. They are at a very low hertz and things just crawl, a 1 MB saver and take them 20 min. or more. They really need to upgrade!! Thanks for the input and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hi,

I have a question about music downloading. I don't want to commit any sort of illegal activity, and I don't want to get in trouble with the law.

I own a video game (not a computer game), and this game has some tunes that I really enjoy. The game itself has a mode where you can listen to the game's music. It's nice, but if I'm travelling and I want to listen to these tunes (for example), then it's not the most convenient thing.

Since I can listen to the game's music off the video game itself whenever I want to (with the proper accessories), would it be illegal for me to download the tunes off the Internet and put it on my iTunes library, or an mp3 player (this is assuming I wouldn't share it with anyone, and that'd it only be for my personal use)? In a way, don't I own the music for my own use?

Hi, I'm new to having an internet connection above 56k.

So i never had the capabilities to really download anything big. I never even gave it to much thought but something occurred to me that will probably sound like a really stupid question.

How come when i download say from a website, I'll get download speeds at well over 100kb, sometimes 200kb and when i download off limewire or bittorrent i'm lucky if i make 100kb but it usually averages much less.

I always thought downloading was faster with p2p or torrents because you download from a multiple of sources. But im getting way faster downloads from Internet explorer.

I was wondering if someone could bear with me and explain this. I want to know if this is normal or if theres something i could do. Thanks.
 

A:Question about Downloading speeds

Hi, Sorry but TechSupportGuy forums are not able to help with issues regarding using filesharing programs.

Category I Offenses
Minor and Sometimes Unintentional Annoyances
P2P Instructions - The purpose of P2P is to illegally trade copyrighted material. We do not support the use of P2P networks and any threads requesting help for them will be closed. This includes Kazaa, Bearshare, WinMX, and the like. If you're interested in the topic, you are free to discuss it on our site (and please visit StealingIsIllegal.com), but information on how to use them will not be provided.

I am closing this thread...but, will answer your download speed question a bit: Your download speed depends not only on your computer and the connection your ISP provides... you are actually downloading from another "server" or computer so it depends on the activity at that end, as well as the condition that machine is in.

I just bought a 22", 1680x1050 widescreen for my computer. I love to change the wallpaper often, so I collect wallpaper. However, at a site called freewidescreenwallpaper.blogspot.com I am having an issue dowloading the wallpaper at its advertised size of 1680x1050 - its downloading at 1600x1000. I think perhaps I am supposed to be able to expand the file to 1680x1050 by clicking on it (when the cursor turns to a magnifying glass), but I am not getting this option. I have right-clicked to see if there are any other options open to me, but there are not any that are obvious to me. The detailed descriptions of the walls explicitly state they are cropped to 1680 resolution, not 1600. Am I missing something here? Any advise is welcome, because these are beautiful walls, and although they fit without distortion (the are still 16x10), they would undoubtedly be sharper in their original size. Thanks...

A:Downloading MS templates question

I couldn't find any way to download one of the MS Office templates without letting a javascript do its thing. However, I wasn't prompted to install any sort of java application, it just downloaded and opened automatically in Word.

When I tried it on another machine (Win98SE), I was prompted to download and install "Microsoft Office Tools on the Web" (or something like that). I allowed it, it installed and I was able to access the templates.

The only java I've installed on both systems was the MS Virtual Machine that comes with Win98 and Sun's java I had to get for this XP system.

I guess I don't bother to worry about downloading and installing stuff from MS. I've already got MS products crawling all over both systems so what's another? Besides, crashes caused by a Microsoft YAWI (Yet Another Web Install) are always so much fun to deal with.

I am confused to decide which is better Samsung galaxy s4 or htc one or iphone 5 or xperia z

things want to consider first thing battery backup, then resolution then camera of course which has the best look

read several reviews and so confused please help
 

A:Which is the best smartphone to buy?

The Galaxy S4 is basically equivalent to the HTC One. The HTC One though, has a better camera and has an aluminum shell. The S4 has a more mediocre camera and a plastic shell (cheaper build quality). They both have basically the same screen. I own an iPhone 5 and love it. The OS is just becoming stale though, and Android (on the S4 and HTC One) is more for power users. iOS (iPhone) is geared more toward rookies who dont know what they are doing since it is so simple. I would take the Xperia Z off of your list since it doesnt match up.

Check out TechSpots' reviews on all three phones:
Galaxy S4: http://www.techspot.com/review/664-samsung-galaxy-s4/

I have recently gotten a new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. I've never had one before. So, I'm trying to figure out how to use it so that I don't accidentally get charge for something not necessarily bad as much as like "accidentally banging your finger with a hammer". Right now, it appears to automatically access the Wi-Fi when it's in range and I'm installing free apps. Will I need to keep an eye on that so that it doesn't download apps (or additional app data) via a cell tower? (I did find a setting called "Wi-Fi Calling Settings" under which I can select Wi-Fi Prefered, Wi-Fi Only, Cellular Prefered.) There's, also, a gps on mine. I've found Google Maps, Google Latitude, Navigation, and TeleNav GPS Navigating that can use the gps in one way or another. How far into those programs can I use the gps before I start getting charged for data usage? Is there anything else I need to be careful of so that I don't end up surprised at the end of the billing cycle?

Regard,
Thanks.

A:How to use VPN connection on a smartphone?

What application are you using to establish the VPN connection? A VPN connection should allow a remote device outside the LAN act as if it was and should be able to access resources limited only to that LAN the same way as if it was connected to it.

Just a couple of questions to help us give you the best support:

What phone are you using and what OS does it have (Android, iOS... etc? )

What VPN application are you using on the server to initiate the remote connection?

What is the OS of the home computer you wish to access and is there a shared folder set? If so what are the sharing permissions applied?

Don't worry if you can't answer all the questions, we will do our best with the information provided

I am replacing my smartphone and need to sync them both together to be able to copy the photos, phone numbers etc. from one smartphone to the other. How do I do this? The makes of each of the two smartphones are Ideos.

Can it be done easily or does it involve sophisticated software?
 

A:Syncing smartphone

Are these Android phones? If so, your contact info should be synced to your Gmail account. Log into the new phone with the same account and that should be copied over. To move pictures, you'll need to upload them to a service or connect your phone to your computer and copy them over.

If the pictures are important, you should have a backup anyway. A smartphone is just a pocket-sized computer. It can crash, fail, etc. and has the added bonus of being easily lost or dropped.

What I'd like to know, please, is it possible to load the Android OS onto the phone?
Any help will be much appreciated.
( the dual-sim side of things works very well but the rest of the system, i.e. camera/video, email etc leave a lot to be desired).

A:Best Android smartphone for €200/$200 or less...

You need to pick a sub forum in Phones and Handheld Devices to post in, you can't post in the root of it. Don't think you'll find an Apple in that price range so it's going to an Android or Windows based phone, unless you go used. Anyways here's an article covering 5 phones under $200.

I see that Tigertext now has Secure paging:
http://www.fiercetelecom.com/press-...age-21st-century-pager-replacement-physicians
Basically they run it through their secure text messaging network, so you get a pager number and people and page you on it.
It seems that they made it for doctors, but I was wondering if it really has a place outside the medical industry.
I wonder if the pages can be set to auto delete like their text messages, so there is no record of the page on the phone?
Is paging of value to people who arent doctors?

Hello, I have an interesting idea, and I am curious if it can be done.

I think it would be pretty cool if I could play one of my PC games on my smart phone. I'm not sure how practical that would be, but none the less I would like to try it. Here are my thoughts on how to accomplish the task:

Input for one, could be accomplished by using a Bluetooth enabled gamepad that pairs with your phone. That way you can go beyond touch screen input for more complex games.

Then there is the small display to consider. While it is ideal for smaller scaled games, it isn't ideal for PC games where they are often very detailed and have complex user interfaces. I thought maybe you could use one of those headsets they use for things like Oculus Rift to narrow in the display. That would make it more ideal.

Now the tricky part, remoting to your PC so you can play the game. From what I understand, remoting is accomplished using RDP, which Windows, Apple and Linux all use. So in theory, you could easily remote to your computer to play a game. You could write a custom application for your smart phone to remote in and send input from the gamepad to your PC.

Now the issue of connectivity. PCs these days can easily render graphics in 1080p, and in some cases 4k. Now over a remote connection (using RDP), I am not sure the protocol can process that kind of data fast enough for consistent frame rates on the client (smart phone). You would likely have to compress the frames for faster process... Read more

Hi 7forums!
I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installed on my laptop(from factory). Till few days ago, I could turn it into Hotspot via the stock Hotspot app & used to connect my android smartphone for normal wifi file transfers. But now that app by which I used to create hotspot is missing somehow(coz I can't find it installed apps). So, I give a try to other hotspot creators(virtual hotspot, Wifi hotspot creator setup, etc)... None of them worked. So, I created ad-hoc but soon learned that android phones don't connect to ad-hoc networks. An app called "mHotspot" shows even a problem with my drivers & asked to restore it but in vain. At last...I searched the net about file sharing methods but most of them state that phone must be connected to computer.

My laptop only has essential softwares by factory & I haven't modified any of 'em.

So please if u have that stock hotspot app(black-ish background with only two options: SSID & Password & Start button), kindly share it here.

Please help me to create wifi hotspot on my laptop so that I can connect my phone the usual way like before:crying:

Thanks in advance...

From the start of connecting my LG G3 to my Windows 7 pro 64bit computer I could not get windows to recognize the phone. In the device manager I saw a driver named VS985 4G. Querying this driver returned "Windows cannot initialize the driver for this hardware (code 37)".

I deleted the driver and connected the phone again. The system automatically reinstalled the same driver and everything worked again, until the next time I tried to reconnect the phone to upload.

It worked that way for some months, then recently when I tried to delete & reinstall the driver it installed a driver named MTP USB device, returned the dialog "Driver Not Successfully Installed" and the device manager reported "Device cannot start (code 10)".

So I next went to the LG site and manually downloaded the driver I entered as VS985 4G. Installed it and again the device manager identifies it a LGE Android MTP device, with the same code 10 error.

I cannot get past this. I tried a system restore but because of limited restore space I couldn't go back more than 2 weeks, and that didn't help. Solution?

I need to export or otherwise copy my contacts from my smartphone to my desktop PC, but can't figure out how to do it..

My smartphone used to sync with the office Exchange Server, but ideally I now want to sync my Outlook contacts with my home PC using standalone Outlook 2003. My PC runs XP SP3 and ActiveSync 4.5. Smartphone is Windows Mobile 6 Standard.

It looks as if I cannot sync Exchage Server contacts to standalone Outlook - if I try to switch to synching with Outlook it tells me the contacts on my phone will be deleted. Is there a safe way of doing this? I would rather retype all my contacts from the phone screen than risk losing them - I can no longer access my former office's Exchange Server.

If I can't use ActiveSync, is there a way of exporting contacts in bulk from Outlook on Windows Mobile?

Thanks for any help - Firepig
