Nexus One Learns A New Trick: T-Mobile's WiFi-Calling Now Possible Via Community Hacking Effort


Friday 08th of November 2013 / androidpolice.com
The Nexus One may be growing long in the tooth, but it's still surely one of the most active phones when it comes to development. Hence this hack should come as a surprise to no-one: T-Mobile's WiFi-Calling functionality has been extracted from one Vanilla Froyo running device (the G2) and injected into another, the one and only Google Phone. While this will obviously only work on N1s on the T-Mobile network, it comes as a welcome distraction to those of us waiting for the imminent Gingerbread OTA.XDA-developers member Rsotbiemrptson has put together a short guide on installing the hack yourself, reprinted below:Instructions: 1. Download CyanogenMod 6.1.0 rom and copy to SD-Card (Not included) 2. Download the app from the first post or this one and copy to SD-Card 3. Download WiFi_Calling.zip and extract the contents to you SD-Card 4. Flash CyanogenMod 6.1.0 (Gapps is optional, It is included in my mod) 5. Go through the initial setup and sign in, then reboot to recovery 6. Flash WiFi Calling Kernel.zip, reboot, then reboot to recovery (It's IntersectRaven's kernel but can't remembe

Contract Opinions & Phone Rantings


Wednesday 18th of September 2013 / androidforums.com
I wanted some opinions on my wireless plan and phones. I currently have the grandfathered unlimited 4g, 1400 minutes, and 1000 texts. I also have my daughter's basic phone on a second line. I am eligible for an upgrade right now and while I have wanted to leave Verizon they have the best coverage in my area. I wanted T-Mobile and tried a Nexus 4 but I had zero coverage in the house and wifi calling isn't an appealing option.So it looks like Verizon is my only option right now. I have narrowed my upgrade choices to the the LG G2 and the Nexus 5. I would be very surprised to see if the Nexus 5 makes Verizon so the LG G2 seems the logical choice. If I upgrade and use the current discount being offered I can get the G2 for $139.99 and another 2 year contract. I lose my unlimited but I rarely use more than 2GB of data per month. I gain unlimited minutes and texts which would be nice.I contemplated selling my Verizon contract on eBay but the average price is probably around $200 for a contract. I will have the hassle of the AOL process and eBay fees so it doesn't seem likes its worth since

Android 4.4.2 SIP setup


Friday 13th of December 2013 / androidforums.com
I have a Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.2 on it.I setup the SIP username/password and it works great to make a call from my home WiFi using the cell phone.When I use T-Mobile's data connection (LTE or 3G) all I get when I place a call is Ringing on my cell, but the call does not show up on the number I am calling nor does it complete.I've check to see if T-Mobile might be blocking that traffic and the best I can tell they don't.Any ideas on why it's not working?Thanks

Nexus 5 & T-Mobile Wifi Calling


Wednesday 25th of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I think I read somewhere that that T-Mobile doesn't allow wifi calling through the Nexus 5. Is this correct?Anyone out there using wifi calling on their TMo N5? We live in a dead zone so the only way we can make calls at home is via Wifi, so the Nexus 5 will not be my next upgrade if that's the case. Merry Christmas Everyone !!

Another Solution for Android users to Group Text or Group Message with iPhone users


Wednesday 16th of July 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I'm running the latest version of KitKat on a Nexus 5 and these settings work best for me using the Textra app (not Hangouts). -First of all you have to be sending and receiving MMS properly first. -Next, make sure you're using Textra as your default SMS app. -If that's all working, under the MMS menu in settings check the box for 'Default for Delivery Reports (whether to request MMS delivery reports)' and also check the box for 'Use MMS for Group Chats (MMS can make group chats work better with other smart phones such as iPhones and Android phones)' -After checking those 2 boxes in the same part of the menu go into 'MMS Settings (Go here if MMS isn't working)'. -Under that check 'Activate Mobile Data (Set this to temporarily activate Mobile Data when sending or receiving an MMS)' and... -Check 'T-Mobile WiFi Calling Fix (Set this to temporarily de-activate WiFi when sending or receiving an MMS. This makes MMS work with T-Mobile WiFi calling)'. Do this regardless of your cell network. I'm on AT&T for example and I needed this. Under SMS I also have checked 'Default for Delivery
