I was previously using Wheres My Droid, but some of the features such as the ability to take photos requires the paid version. I downloaded Lookout, but it required a subscription in order to take full advantage of the app. So far I'm thinking of keeping Android Lost, but I'm open to suggestions for apps that may be better.

What I do know is that there is something horribly wrong with the fact that you can have a phone with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, software based on the the newest, lightest version of Android yet (KitKat), and yet still somehow serve users a piping hot plate of lag on a silver platter. Besides its looks (which I found myself wanting to sand paper away or Plasti-Dip over), the chrome rim around the side of the phone is actually raised, creating a lip around the glass.
Besides needing a healthy amount of fingernail to get the damn thing open, the real problem I have with the S Flap, is it wouldn’t even be an issue if Samsung simply included wireless charging with the device.
When Apple introduced the fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 5S, for the most part, it was done well. As we all know, the Galaxy S5 uses a similar security feature, with a new fingerprint scanner found in the home button.
Before I leave you, I just want to remind that this is merely the opinion of a single lonely blogger (no matter how right it is). Samsung is showing off its flexible display technology by rolling out a 5.7-inch OLED panel into a small cylinder. If you want a top quality all-in-one way to digest your vast collection of music, videos, photos and podcasts, though, you’ll have a hard time finding anything better than Kodi. Some code found hidden inside of a new Google Photos update is showing references to an exclusive perk for Nexus device owners: unlimited original quality photo backups. The new “Display size” options in Android N are great, but did you know there was a hidden setting that can shrink things down even smaller?
I have samsung galaxy win but upon checking the imei result my model is different from my phone .
The color – if your phone is dark blue and the manufacture of that device doesn’t sell that model of phone in blue then it’s likely a counterfeit.
Logo placement – if a quick image search online shows that the manufacturers brand is supposed to be printed and displayed on top of the phone above the screen and your phone shows the logo on the bottom under the screen then… it’s likely a fake. Features – if your phone has features that it shouldn’t, like multiple SIM card slots, software features, navigation differences, then these differences might not pop out to the average person who is using a smartphone for the first time but these features could certainly signal that something with the phone isn’t exactly right. Unless some of these things are ringing a bell in your particular circumstances then your phone is probably legitimate. I am not sure how you compared your IMEI to the make and model of phone but I don’t really trust any sites online. Please,my phone is Samsung Galaxy S 3 but after I reset the phone,its not detecting the IMEI, so how do I enter the IMEI after I detect it myself?
Due to following some unlocking instruction on the web, my phone lost it's IMEI and now it shows as Null or unkown, and the ServiceMode menu, has no options to select from! You ask a very complicated question my friend, and I can see how you might have difficulties finding an answer.
When buying a cell phone, especially online (which can be the best place to by a smartphone), always do some research first not just on the phone but on the seller as well.
Since you are trying to restore your IMEI and not just change it there might be more hope in your current situation.
I have yet to restore an IMIE number myself and I try to avoid giving advice through this site about rooting, flashing, or customizing an Android cell phones firmware, software, etc. Long story short, you may want to consider taking your cell phone into a local repair shop to get a quick quote first and if you cannot find anyone that can service it or you just have to fix it yourself there are a few tools available such as the Samsung Professional Tool that you might find helpful. Hello Romario,If your cell phone has been stolen then you should call up your service provider and report it stolen. Hi Kasey,I have been helping people fix their cell phones for about 5 years now and I cannot recall ever coming across that exact issue before.
So far, it shows that it's been off when checking on locate my mobile but I hear that it can be hardset, by reloading counterfeit software and it will work again; my question is, can I still track it using the IMEI? Hello Mthobisi,I hate to say this but a stolen phone can be really difficult to recover for many different reasons and you might not be able to get your Samsung S4 back :(. Cool Apps, Cool Life; Provide the most needed software for global users, Improve the quality of life with science and technology. Your Galaxy Note 5 sports two versions of Samsung KNOX namely the KNOX Active Protection and My KNOX.
With Samsung KNOX you can secure versions of applications to help you keep your work and personal information segregated.
All applications and utility services that reside in the KNOX secure container run in a unique environment segregated from everything that occurs on the default phone. Another tool you can use to ensure all data stored in your device are protected from any unauthorized access in whatever circumstances (like when the phone is lost or stolen). Aside from finding the location of your lost or stolen device, you can also use Find My Mobile to keep your personal data secured.
You need to register your Samsung account on the device you are using in order to use Find My Mobile to locate your lost phone. On the next screen, tap the Settings icon located on the upper-right corner of the screen, next to EDIT menu.
Now enter the email address that is associated with your Samsung account and then tap Next to continue.
When prompted enter the correct password for your Samsung account and then tap Confirm to proceed. Toggle the switches next to Remote Controls and Google Location Service to enable these features on your phone. Note: You need to enable these features beforehand so you can track or locate your device whenever you have to using Find My Mobile service.
If the Remote controls menu is enabled and the device is online, then you can use the Find My Phone to start tracing your lost device.
Enter the email address associated with your Samsung account into the Email field provided, and then click Password to enter the password.
All devices that are registered to your Samsung account will be shown under Registered Just select the device on which you want to use the service and check its status. Select any from the available actions including Locate my device, Ring my device, Enable Emergency mode, and Ultra power saving mode.


Choosing the option to Ring my device will ring your lost phone for a minute at the highest volume regardless of your phone’s sound and vibration settings.
For more accurate results, it is recommended to opt for the Use Wireless Networks option, as your location search method. We are always open to your problems, questions and suggestions, so feel free to contact us by filling up this form.
Like my mother used to tell me, you’ll never find the perfect woman, only the perfect woman for you. Despite my friends and family warning me that buying the Galaxy S5 would only end in heartbreak, I went against their better judgement and purchased the phone anyway.
Aside from KitKat making things fun with the way apps handle external storage, finding applications other than games that can actually be moved to the SD card is rare. As soon as you lose some of that light — shooting indoors on a cloudy day, or a dimly lit restaurant, etc. Everyone praised the Nexus 4 for including beveled edges on the sides of the display (something we also saw in the HTC Sensation back in the day). If you thought that was annoying, how about not being able to access this port until you first removed a plastic flap?
Sure, you could always spend an extra $30 and order one direct from Samsung, but why should you have to? Only problem is in their implementation, you actually have to slide your finger across the home button, not simply press it. Also, there are a lot of things I like about the Galaxy S5 that many of you may find more valuable than the minor annoyances listed here.
Before anyone could even get their hands on the phone, Samsung is unveiling the phone in an official unboxing video.
The newest version includes performance and UI tweaks in addition to a handful of new features.
If someone unsuccessfully tries to unlock your phone, Third Eye snaps a photo with the front-facing camera. Depending on your preference, you can even activate a tablet UI on your smartphone — no root required. This guide will show you some simple ways of locating it.Quick InstructionsIMEI Method 1 – Through the dialerCall *#06# on your Keypad as though you were dialing a telephone number. If an unknown person is selling a phone online or locally and the price is just too good to be true then use caution as the phone could be fake or even worse stolen. Check and compare the IMEI number that you can access through the phones settings with the IMEI number that is printed on your phone (it is printed on a label which can usually be found in your cell phones battery compartment). If you have any more questions about your IMEI or your cell phone then don’t hesitate to ask. Manufactures DO NOT want people to be able to change their phones IMIE number because they use these Device Identifiers to black list or block lost and stolen phones. This partition is important on Samsung devices as it holds the phones important information such as its MAC address, its baseband version, its product code, and yes the IMEI number. If there is anything else that I can try to help you with just let me know and I will see what I can do. I have the Samsung Galaxy S4 myself so I should be able to help you with yours as I know that phone very well. That being said… you may still be able to locate your phone.If however you do locate your cell phone and it has indeed been stolen, please be smart about recovering it. Is your cell phone rooted or have you installed a custom OS or custom software to your device?
My Samsung S 4 was stolen about two weeks ago and I suspect it could be back on the market soon.
I can certainly feel where you are coming from though as I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 myself and would be very upset if some thief ended up taking it from me.
Read on to learn how to keep all your sensitive files in your phone safe from any unauthorized access.
Samsung KNOX Active Protection is a built in feature of the device and it’s out of the box.
So you may consider heading back to your phone Settings and make sure this option is selected.
I kid you not, I was having nightmares that my phone was getting laggier and laggier, only to wake up and find myself in cold sweats. Sure, you can always root and move everything to the SD card, but that’s a topic for another time. Like some kind of bastardized version AOL smileys meets Lisa Frank, they look horribly out of place on Samsung’s new minimal interface.
This ensured sliding the ever growing UI elements from the sides of the display was always a pleasurable experience.
Great for keeping snooping eyes out of your phone, sure it wasn’t full proof, but it was enough security for most cases. Things like the small bezels, battery life, the Super AMOLED display (along with saturation controls), camera (when shooting in daylight), super quick 2A charging, removable battery, or its weather proofing. When you return to your phone and unlock it, Third Eye delivers a notification with the photo. It was one of the first Android phones I had the pleasure of working with and is a pretty long lasting and durable unit.
If you are worried about your phone being fake there are some things that you can look for when comparing your cell phone to their legitimate cell phone counterparts.
If the IMEI number in your settings doesn’t match the IMEI number on that label then something is most definitely wrong.
So if you checked your IMEI number somewhere online then ignore those results as it is not the most reliable way to check an IMEI number. If someone could just steal a phone or in some cases steal multiple phones and then change their IMEI numbers to sell at a discounted price there would be even more chaos in the mobile marketing world. You don’t want to end up getting a “discount” thinking you got a swinging good deal only to find that you bought a worthless phone and someone got away with your money. So… mess with this partition or cause a change to the EFS data and it can result in a null IMEI number.
I called the network provider and asked them to block it but I just heard about phones being hard-set and unlocked for use by any network. I imagine that I would do everything that I could (within reason) to recover my cell phone from that individual.As far as your question…One of the first things that I can see a thief doing after taking a cell phone is to perform a hard reset on the device.


It’s therefore recommended to create an independent email that is generally linked to your work or Samsung account that will be used only in KNOX.
There were only 2 features on my mind: SAMOLED display, and the high-resolution ISOCELL camera. Because this means every time you go to unlock your phone, you’ll have to use 2 hands to do it. Well, in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note 6, 6 might hate 7 because it might be completely forgotten about as Samsung potentially leaps to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 for this year’s launch. IMEI numbers can often be found in the battery compartment of your phone.What is an IMEI number?An International Mobile Station Equipment Identity or IMEI for short is like the phones Social Security Number. I don’t understand your question though… can you be as specific as possible about your “problem” so I can know the exact issue and how to help you fix it.
The best way to check an IMEI or MEID number is to call your wireless service provider and have them run a check on it.
Some people do this anyways on a big scale, sell the worthless phones (because their IMEI numbers have been blocked), and then disappear before the buyer even knows something is wrong. In fact I hesitate to even bring this up but this tool can also be used to erase the information on your phone which can help keep it from prying eyes.
This allows the unsavory individual to get past a locked screen (if this security feature was setup on the phone) and also helps to remove the primary Google account from the phone which helps prevent tracking an Android cell phones GPS location through the Google Dashboard.A hard reset does not however affect the cell phones device identifier such as its IMEI or MEID number which brings us to your next question…Jailbreaking and software customization or manipulation while certainly possible is difficult to do in regards to circumventing the security measures put in place to discourage the theft and continuous and unauthorized use of a smartphone. I bet the last thing you want to see will be your important data and valuable private conversations with your loved ones being lost forever. Here’s what you can do to evade from these hazards and ensure your data stays protected. But please note that we receive hundreds of emails every day and it’s impossible for us to respond to every single one of them.
Having owned a HTC One (M7), Nexus 5, and an LG G2 for all these months, maybe I’ve just been spoiled by snappy, lag-free performance.
Taking it out on a bright Spring day, shooting some pics of the kids by the pool, it performs wonderfully. What was so wrong with Android’s stock emoji that you had to create these abominations? Whenever I see it, it reminds me of 1950’s future and not modern smartphone design we see on devices like the HTC One M8. Once again, I know it sounds crazy to complain about, but think of all the times you’re using your phone with only 1 hand available. Only that phone has that number.As you can guess, this number can be useful for a few reasons. Please also include the troubleshooting that you have already done when trying to solve the issue yourself so we can fix your problem as quickly as possible. IMEIs are important in the cell phone industry and your service provider will have multiple tools and programs to verify your IMEI number.
Make sure to also read the post above this one as you might be able to at least erase important, personal or private data currently stored to the device (if the thief hasn’t done so already in order to bypass a screen lock password).As far as apps… while a blocked phone can no longer access a wireless carrier’s service or download applications through a mobile data connection the phone will still be able to connect to Wi-Fi and connect to the internet that way. Some wireless providers have to activate this feature on their end in order for you to use it, and sometimes you have to pay to utilize this feature as well depending on who provides your service.I would start out by contacting your wireless provider first and seeing if this feature is in fact available on your cell phone and if it is then ask them how to get it to work on your particular cell phone. In summary it’s really hard to keep using a phone as a phone once it has been reported stolen and then blacklisted by the phones carrier as the phone should no longer be able to connect to that wireless carrier for service.
Then you should use a professional and convenient tool to recover what means a lot to you promptly.Erased contacts can be restored because your deletion doesn’t have them wiped right away.
I mean, what’s the point of upgrading to a faster processor, when you don’t actually reap any of the benefits? One side you have a picture I snapped with my full frame camera to show you exactly how much light was actually in this scene.
Let me know as much about the problem as you can and I will do my best to try and help you fix it.
So applications will not really be limited to the device and the thief will most likely still be able to use them (in fact that’s pretty much the only thing the phone will be good for once its reported stolen).Again, I am sorry to hear about your phone Abdul.
And if they do provide you with the solution then please come back and let us know what you (or they) did to fix it just in case someone else stumbles upon the same issue on their cell phone.Good luck Kasey, I hope to hear back from you soon. It can still utilize a Wi-Fi network for a data connection but shouldn’t be able to connect to a wireless telecommunications network.Can your stolen cell phone still be tracked? For those whom we’ve helped, please spread the word by sharing our posts to your friends or by simply liking our Facebook and Google+ page or follow us on Twitter. On the right is how well the Galaxy S5 handles in the smallest dip in light: like a muddy mess.
Requiring 2 hands to simply unlock your phone is a major oversight, and one that should have never made it out of R&D. Did you know if you switched the SIM card in your phone or if you are activating your phone for the first time your phone company can see that your phone number (and SIM card number if your phone uses a SIM card) was activated on that specific device (using the IMEI number) to the exact second of activation.And if your phone gets lost or stolen your wireless provider can also use the IMEI number to LOCK that specific phone so it becomes little more than a paperweight. This should show you your phones Device Identifier (IMEI number or MEID) along with some other information such as backup data. Your contact information can either be stored in your SIM card or your phone’s internal memory. If you tap on “Manage active devices”, this should let you “Locate device” and show you an approximate location of your cell phone as well as give you the option to “Ring” it or if you choose you could also use the “Set up Lock & Erase” feature as well…I hope this helps to answer your question Romario. If it’s the former, as long as the card is kept intact and the deleted data haven’t been overwritten, you can have them recovered. If it’s the latter, make sure that you have no more new data in and it remains what it was like the moment the data were erased. It’s applicable to all Android mobile phones as well as is able to recover other kinds or forms of deleted data, such as text messages, call history, photos and videos other than just contacts.
Helpful as Android Data Recovery is, it can easily take care of your problems and will definitely get you away from worries about losing your important data. Then, follow the step-by-step guide to see how easy it is to use Coolmuster Android Data Recovery to restore deleted contacts from LG cell phone.
