Anyone else having a problem with screen rotation on Samsung S5? When I want to watch something on YouTube for example my phone is stuck in portrait, it won't go into landscape no matter what. My screen rotation is activated.

I went online & was advised to power down the phone, remove the battery for 30 seconds before putting it back in & powering up. This worked for about 15 minutes but now it doesn't. I don't want to revert to factory settings as I've too much stuff to lose & am not in a position to back data up easily. Has anyone else had this problem? Can anyone help?

Unfortunately, Google Search has stopped

Hi, i wonder if anyone has this problem above with the vodafone Smart 4 Turbo smartphone as i got my mum & brother the phone last year.

But it only seems to appear on my mum's phone, she can't even text as it appears often & has to click ok on it to get it off the screen even when it rings also.

Dunno whether to try the Vodafone/Tesco forum as she's with Tesco, i went into the VF store in L'kenny, just to see if i could get advice even though it's on Tesco network, he would only go as far to say, it needs an update through the settings but to no avail, it still pops up

Any help would be great, as it's driving her nuts!

Edit: Actually it's the Vodafone Smart 3 as i had to look up the purchase,
although i think it's Vodafone 875 Smart mini in other places here, afaik it was for protective covers, as it was confusing both

Thank, i had actually used the wrong link from imgur, instead of the direct link.

What will a factory reset do?

You'll need to upload the screenshot to imgur or somewhere, boards attachments are temporarily unavailable. Sounds like a factory reset is needed though.

I have a Samsung A5 (2017 model).

Recently I've noticed the decimal point has disappeared off the popup numeric keypad. I know there were some software updates to the android OS a week or two ago. Does anyone have a solution to this? Do I need to download some sort of App?

hey guys, i recently got a new android phone and tried to restore my whatsapp history via a google drive backup. all the media was restored but only the group chats, none of the individual chats.

any help/tips/tricks to get the individual chats?

thanks very much


ETA: phone is lost so phone clone is not an option

It should have just worked automatically. Are you following the process and validating your number first and then letting it search for the backup in drive?

Yes, it is searching for a backup, but not giving me the option of which backup to select.

i had my old phone with all messages/pics/etc which i made a google drive backup for about 1 month ago.

when i install whatsapp and verify, it automatically selected the daily backup with no messages rather than the 1 in google drive. very frustrating!

any thoughts?

or is there a way to move the unwanted (for now) backups from google drive, store them some place else, so i'm then left with the backup i want?

Is there a way to restore Chrome to factory settings on an android phone?

I have a Samsung J5 (16GB) that is really low on memory, I'v stripped everything off it and tried loading apps onto micro SD etc But chrome is hogging 7GB of space?
A girl I work with has same phone of similar age and her chrome app is 1.2GB? She says she uses it regularly and hasn't really made any effort to slim it down?

Any advice? Can't really see much (helpful) on net about it. I'm prepared to restore my full phone to factory settings if that means it will work. Just don't want to go to that hassle and have some sort of forced update that will leave me back at square 1

Help

Hi Guys,

Still looking for help with this.
I bought a new Huawei last week and somehow i seem to have set up a group chat with a friend of mine which i dont want.

So the problem is when this friend sends a text its grand but if they send a picture it goes to the group chat and not the normal text (if that makes sense).

I just want to be able to receive normal texts which allows pictures to be sent as well and not have anything going to the group chat.

I have tried deleting the group chat but as soon as a picture is sent by this person it goes straight to group chat.

I have gone to 3 different phone shops including where i bought it and none of the staff have seen this issue before.I have no idea if i have set up something and it can be reversed(which seems unlikely) or theres an issue with the phone and it should be replaced.

One of the guys in eir offered to send it away to be fixed but i feel if thats whats required then to me theres an issue with the phone so im entitled to a replacement.

I have even factory reset the phone but still the issue is there any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

What application are you and your friend using to send the messages to each other?
