The Weekly Q&A: Week 30

Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help to you, they might still be interesting to read.

Q‘Is there a way to make the HDMI on the EVo 4G work with all videos?’

A YES there is. If you aren’t rooted already do it and download HDMwIn from the market.

  • Q&A originally posted in the EVO 4G thread.

Q‘Is it possible through your phone to check recent activity or if its possible to get a notice if someone is trying or has accessed your Gmail account from another computer?’

A Nope. Your only choice is a browser.

  • Q&A originally posted in the EVO 4G thread.

Q‘Will the custom WP7 ROMs update to NODO or will you need to install a new ROM?’

A You will need a new ROM. As of today the HD2 can’t be updated through Zune.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HD2 Windows Phone 7
    thread.

Q‘Could it be possible to add a function or a app to hide people listed in contacts?’

A If you sync with Google, you can assign them to a certain group, then not show that group.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Epic 4G thread.

Q‘I have tried every setting and cannot get the text or email keyboard to display a £ symbol rather than dollar sign. How do i get a £ (pound) symbol?’

A Press 12# to get the numbers, and then 1/2 to get page 2 and there it is.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Desire HD thread.

We certainly hope that you can use these bits of knowledge. This site is full of wonderful guides for virtually every question you could have. Read them and put them to good use.
