Quick post while I get around to the next 5… Honest!

Strange but true fact, going to Settings / Locale and Text / Touch Input / Text Input and turning off Sound feedback and Vibrate when typing improves the responsiveness of typing on the Hero.

Hopefully HTC are aware of this and improve it when the finally release an update for the Hero, which will hopefully be this side of Armageddon.

The problem with Text Messaging on the Hero pt.2

Ok I’ll admit I’ve slacked off a bit… Well ok ALOT, but I’m still living with my HTC Hero, and I’m still bugged with the complete lack of foresight by HTC to time stamp text messages, there are fortunately alternatives to HTC’s SMS solution. Continue reading

Missed Calls grrrrrr

Ok I missed a call this evening, when my phone was just next to me, kind of annoyed I then rang myself with my other phone and found after taking in network connection times I have ~10 seconds to answer! WTF! Continue reading

Easy market access

Another short post today :-

If like me you find searching the Android market from the handset a chore, help is at hand in the form of http://www.cyrket.com/ yes search from the luxury of your PC, but can I suggest before going you take one last venture into the market from the handset to download Barcode Scanner by ZXin Team as this will make using Cyrket even easier as you can just scan the QR barcode from your monitor and get the app that way.

Pro Tip :- Gmail failing to sync

Ok I recently had an issue with gmail not syncing, I was getting notified of new emails but the app was refusing to load any new email, tho it showed that there was new messages for me.

A quick browse to Settings / Data Synchronization / Google showed a red exclamation mark with the message ‘Sync is experiencing probles, it’ll be back soon’ I left it for 6hrs and it didn’t improve.

I resolved the problem by going to Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / Gmail and clicked ‘clear data’

Open Gmail, pres Menu, then refresh Gmail starts to resync and all was good in the world. 😀

Hope this helps some ppl
