Hi, i just got motorola defy couple days ago and im having heating problem. When i use the internet games or gps, the back of the phones seems become really warm. Is that mean i should repair the cell...

Hi there fellow android user. I've noticed the same thing on my HTC wildfire. It seems to overheat whenever I upload photos and use the web browser at the same time.This should be normal since it requires power to be able to perform different tasks at the same time. This usually occurs if you have the GPS, mobile internet or wifi activated and yes it will overheat even when playing games. I've noticed this too on the GALAXY 5 by Samsung which is also an android phone

How to activate gps in samsungI5801,while opening its showing waiting for location

You're probably inside a building. For GPS to work properly, you need to be outside where the phone will have line-of-sight to the satellites. After you walk outside, it can still take a few minutes for the GPS to get a lock.

After purchasing a Samsung Jack once, I attempted to use the GPS, but was having problems getting it to locate satellites. I then went online with the phone and downloaded Maps from Bing. When I did, the GPS began working. Maybe it will work for you, but you really do need to be outside - and in an area clear of nearby trees and hills for the GPS to work properly.

GPS is present but not enabled on these phones when they come from the store. In order to activate the GPS it depends on your cell provider. Currently sprint has a update that will give you windows mobile 6.1 and GPS, but Verizon does not have a official update for their phones yet

Hands free feature

I had the same problem : seems that the reason for this, is a double (or multiple) input in the phonebook with the same name : whenever the phone tries to send the contents of the phonebook to the car GPS, it detects the "double" (or multiple) input(s) and does not know what to do with it. Thus the phone blocks ("hangs") and reboots itself. A simple remedy for this : just remove the double input(s) from the phonebook and the problem will be solved.

How can i activate my GPS on my cell HTC touch

supposedly the touch comes with a built in gps receiver just like the tytn2, however it needs to be activated as the australian version has it switched off (probably for marketing reasons). it is tricky to turn it on but it can be done, check out the xda developers forum for threads on how to do this. I think you need to install a new radio rom and new firmware, good luck!!
