I have the HTC One (M7 developer edition) phone, and I love it! The elegant hardware design and the Sense UI are amazing.
A few days ago HTC released a patch under the name “HTC Service Pack” and unfortunately it appears they did not do enough testing. There are thousands of people who have been plagued with the same issue I had – just read the app reviews. When making a call, I was unable to hear the other side, and they too were unable to hear me.
After digging into the code from the update I discovered a resolution. Here’s what you need to do – at least that’s what worked for me and a couple friends of mine who have the M7. I would presume this will fix the issue with the M8 as well.
- Go to settings then apps, all apps
- Find “Google Services Framework”
- Force stop the app and clear the data. Do this 3 times.
- Restart the phone.
Did that work for you?
I took the plunge and upgraded from OSX 10.7 Snow Leopard directly to OSX 10.9 Mavericks (free from Apple!! WOO HOO!!) on my laptop. Yes, I made sure I had a backup first!!
So far, I’m happy with it, and it runs pretty smoothly. My laptop is a mid-2010 MBP 13″ that I’ve upgraded to 8GB RAM and 750GB “hybrid” drive – it has a 64GB SSD.
I noticed the system was a little sluggish at first, then I rebooted, repaired permissions, and rebooted another 6 times – this helps the HDD know to move the OS and startup apps into the SSD portion.
Have you tried it? What did you think?
When Twitter pulled the API back, many apps and custom coding for a lot of people stopped working. I’ve just figured out a way to get my blog to post to my Twitter account again.
In order to make sure that it’s working, this is my sample post.
Lately I’ve been gathering the analytics of my websites and I’m starting the process of the dreaded redesign.
I have some sketches and wireframes that I’ve been working on – so get ready for a new site to be launching soon.
I heard a rumor that Rogers Wireless will be switching all data plans to be LTE capable providing you have an LTE sim card in the phone. There’s no need to call or go into Rogers to do anything.
Why is this great?
If you have any data credits, you won’t lose them because in effect you’re not changing anything on your plan.
- So I went in to a Rogers store and picked up an LTE sim card for $10.
- When I got home, I logged into my Rogers account and changed the sim card serial to the new one.
- I popped the sim card into my phone.
- Voila LTE speed.
I ran the Speedtest app on my phone to compare it to other tests I’ve done in the past. I was so shocked, i ran the test 3 times! The screen capture of it below is all the proof that’s needed.
That’s right. About 4x faster download, and 19x faster upload!
I’m so pleased to have an LTE-capable device!
I should note that I have not had LTE service in the past 4-hours, I’ve only been receiving 4G.
