    2 Newb questions

    Hi, not been able to find the answers to these 2 questions:

    1. When I push the power button to turn on the screen the usual time and green padlock is displayed, also there is a sentence, "This phone belongs to:"
    How do I get my name on there?
    2. A buddy sent me some photos in a text, how do I extract them to my gallery?
    Thanks for your time.

    Colin

    Thanks for your prompt reply Aseems, unfortunately neither question was answered in any of those locations.
    I have since discovered that doing a long press and hold on the msg attachment puts up a sub menu that does indeed allow you to save the attachment.

    Would still like to know how to put my name on the opening screen!!

    Read the Manual Bro...

    I've got a Screen Lock Pattern and a 4 Liner Lost Message

    using Privacy Settings & the "Antivirus" App from Israel

    (icon looks like a White and Yellow Capsule Medical Pill)

    I had the same problem, it is an anti virus program, looks like a white and yellow pill, you can change what it says just by going into it's settings and it allows you to either leave it bank or get them to call you, I have " this phone is locked and tracked please call my number for a reward" I hope this gives them a reason t hand it back

    Has Anyone else read this HORROR Story?

    Study: select Android apps sharing data without user notification -- Engadget

    50% of Android Apps (Surveyed) shared location information and / or other unique identifiers (IMEI numbers, phone numbers, SIM numbers, etc.) with advertisers.

    jonno2k FTW!

    The ACTUAL Study (pdf) looks like a PR campign for a new App called "TaintDroid" IMHO

    P.S. - Sam Lu's aSpotCat does the same thing already
