STILL DISSATISFIED

Hi all,

Still issues to try to overcome.:smileysad:

Looking through the user guide, it says if you want to clear notifications, as I have a few voivemail messages and can't clear them, to tap clear facility! What clear facility? There isn't one when you bring down the notifications.

Also, unlike basic phones with far more call settings functions, the mini pro has few usable. If I get an incoming call and I am not near the phone, seems like the default setting is 4 rings and go to Voice. That's not enough and there's no facility to extend.

The info on messaging is endless and call handling is just as important but not catered for down to adjusting basic functions. Poor.

As regards Apps.....forget it. I have not got my head round it. Limited number using phone storage. Have a big micro sd and it's sitting there wasted. This is probably the most useless phone for me that I have had. The first smartphone and I think I will be looking at others but far more in depth before ordering. Hopefully, Virgin will offer an upgrade soon and I shall take it.

One positive is the screen messaging which is quick and easy to use. All smarts have that now so I will be going elsewhere.

Good forum by other standards but sometimes you have to realise some of us are not APP nerds and just want it easy explanations and settting up and simple mobile phone function.

Thanks,

Jon

Re: STILL DISSATISFIED

How about this

http://talk.sonymobile.com/thread/17499

1) *#61# in the dial pad

this will then bring up a number and how long your ring time is write down the number you'll need it later

2) on the dial pad again type this

**61*(put the number you written down before here e.g. 07923874658)*11*(how long u want it to ring for before voicemail e.g. 30 for 30 seconds)#

so it should look like this **61*07923874658*11*30#

3) exit everything, back to the dial pad, dial  *#61# just to double check that it worked

Re: STILL DISSATISFIED

Thanks uliwooly, I had forgotten about that thread. However do bear in mind that this will only work in some cases, for example this does not work with the three networks we have where I am but it is certainly worth a try.

Re: STILL DISSATISFIED

Thank you people! I will check with Virgin to see what the network default is as per Sam's post. Thanks uliwooly, that's an interesting thought. So basically, you should be able to choose the numbers you receive calls from frequently, having a longer ringtime?

That could solve it!

Thanks again,

Jon

Re: STILL DISSATISFIED

it should apply to all callers, but you can always use an app to filter the calls :smileyhappy:

Ok. That would seem to solve my prob. Will set it up tonight as hyper busy now but here's hoping you nailed it!

Much thanks again,

Re: STILL DISSATISFIED

To make better use of your SD card, you need to install an application that notifies you when a recently installed application can be moved to the SD card, such as "App 2 SD" ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.a0soft.gphone.app2sd )

Unfortunately, you can not move all your apps to your SD card, but that is an Android limitation rather than a phone-specific limitation.

Hi DeGraaff,

Thank you for that. I will attempt to get that installed and see what happens.

Many thanks,

Jon
