q+aI own a Galaxy Y, which runs on Android 2.3.6. Could you please tell the steps with which I can root my phone?
Rooting your phone means giving yourself superuser access to system files on your phone. This allows you to change the user interface and add things that normally you would not be allowed to. First, download update.zip from the iplaygalaxyY website on to your PC. Use your USB cable to connect your Galaxy Y to your PC and copy the downloaded zip file into your SD card. Turn off your phone. Enter Recovery Mode by pressing volume Up, Power and Home Key together.Samsung Galaxy pops up. Use the volume keys to move up/down and Home key to select apply update from SD card. Locate and select update.zip. After it finishes installing, reboot. You will see the superuser icon. Now you can set apps to have superuser access. Download and install busybox.apk. Busybox is a collection of simple, but powerful, Linux utilities that does not come by default on Android.
q+aFor the past few weeks, I have not been able send attachments through my Yahoo! and Gmail accounts. When an attachment is added to any of the mails, I get a dialog box after a while saying, “Sorry…”.
Most attachment problems are usually browser related. The easiest solution for you would be to download the latest version of a different browser and then try to send the attachments. Another option would be to clear your browser’s cookies and cache. Updating to the current version of Adobe Flash Player can solve many such problems too.
q+aI am using a BlackBerry Curve. Is there a way I can customise the kinds of emails I want to receive in my Inbox. I receive all kinds of game requests, advertisements and spam, which I find quite irritating.
Go to the appropriate Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) site for your carrier. Enter the username and password for the account you set up with your carrier. You will see a list of all email accounts that are being pushed to your device. Next to each account there are icons for Edit, Filters, and Delete. Click the Filters icon next to the account from which you receive a lot of unwanted mails. Click Add Filter. Give the filter a name. In the pull-down list select the criteria for this filter: New mail arrives. A high-priority mail arrives. “From:” field. “Subject” field. “To:” field. “CC:” field. If you select one of the last four items, fill in the “Contains” field as well. Separate multiple entries with semicolons. Now choose whether this filter forwards or does not forward the selected messages. If you are using a BlackBerry Enterprise Server for your emails follow these steps: On the Home screen, click the Messages icon. Press the Menu key. Click Options. Click Email Filters. Press the Menu key again. Click New. Type a name for the email message filter. Set the email message filter options. Press the Menu key. Click Save. You can filter emails by subject and sender too from here.
Word on iPod
q+aIs there any free app for the iPod touch that will allow me to edit and save Msword and Excel documents? Prasun Sarkar
Download Documents 2 Free to create, edit and save Office documents. However, this app does not allow you to edit existing documents on your iPod touch. I would suggest you install Dropbox on both your iPod touch and computer. Edit your documents on the computer and save the document on to the Dropbox folder. Watch how the edited document magically appears on your iPod.
