    Stay off, wifi!

    Aha! The three dot menu! Thanks for your patience. Now why are your menus black and mine are sucky white?

    Stay off, wifi!

    Thanks! My phone rang at work today, flipped it over, and..... It kept ringing. Yet another black mark against Lollipop. Yes I'm one of those people who loved KitKat. Lollipop? Not so much.

    Stay off, wifi!

    I turn wifi off when I'm out and about but it tries to connect with every random network it passes. When I have it off I want it to STAY OFF. Is this possible? Bonus question... what happened to silencing my ringing phone by setting it face down? Did Lollipop kill that handy feature too? TIA...

    ascending volume on ringer

    Yes on KitKat the ringer started loud and ended loud. On Lollipop, there is an ascending volume ringtone. The good news is, there is an app on Play specifically to fix this and it works great. I used it on my S4. The bad news is, I don,t remember what it's called... Dr Fatsides

    Android Interruptions keeps interrupting!

    So I was grudgingly forced to upgrade to Lollipop a couple of days ago. On KitKat, I would put my phone on silent overnight and hear nothing but my alarm all night, just my alarm in the morning. When I silenced it, it went silent, & when I restored the volume I got calls & notifications. Simple...

    Not much volume... Volume... VOLUME!

    Yeah, but sometimes when you're sitting around with your buds you just want to play them a YouTube video or something...even attached to my car the volume through the phone isn't as loud as the radio.

    Not much volume... Volume... VOLUME!

    I agree, overall, it is a nice phone; just don't like the low volume. Lollipop seems to have some bugs, from what I've read; plus I don't like the look and all the white screens. I prefer the dark, simpler look of KitKat. I'll give PowerAmp a try. Thanks, gentlemen!

    Not much volume... Volume... VOLUME!

    Actually, the problem is NOT MUCH VOLUME. I had an S4 until I traded it for a Droid Turbo and the problem is the same for both - neither one gets loud at all. Both my stepson's Droid... Something and my wife's Droid... Something, which are both older phones, blast the S4 and the Turbo out of...

    [Solved] Korean boxes under Google search bar?

    OK, people. I was using Buzz Launcher. When I switched to Launcher 3, good ol' Google popped up without any Korean. It must be something in the Launcher settings. Thanks again for all your help. Any launcher suggestions at this late date in the thread? Dr F

    [Solved] Korean boxes under Google search bar?

    Hmmm... I don't have Google Now set up. I've checked all the language settings in all the Googles I can find. The only thing checked is English (US). Thanks, tho... Dr F

    [Solved] Korean boxes under Google search bar?

    All of a sudden I'm getting boxes with Korean (I think) under my Google search box and my results are weird. (See screenshot) I "uninstalled Google and deleted updates, still the same. I don't torrent or go to any bad websites on my phone (you know what I mean). My Google search language is set...

    Another software upgrade today.

    Verizon here. Just got the update about a half-hour ago (Pennsylvania). I don't notice any difference right away except that I think it added a "Verizon Support and Protection" app (or I never noticed it before). It immediately needs updated. Play Store says it's "FREE" antivirus protection, in...
