  43. [b]Conversation on using memory card as internal storage or portable storage [/b]:
  44. [quote author=okikiosibodu post=83026174] Jboixxx... I think you should add these to you compilation list for newbies
  45. [quote author=BoleAndFish] Hello guys, if I select the option to use my memory card as extra phone storage, will I be able to format it as external storage in another device if I want to start using it in another device? [/quote]
  46.  
  47. [quote author=saint2ace] No you can't, the SD Card is useless outside the phone it was configured to work with. You cannot reformat nor use it except in the phone. Lost 64gb SD card to that experiment. Still can't find a way around formatting it outside the phone, unfortunately the phone has been sold off :-[ :-[ [/quote]
  48.  
  49. [quote author=olayinkajnr] It is 100% possible. Unless you are using a fake SD card.
  50.  
  51. I have a 32gb SD card that I used with my Nokia 5.1 last year.
  52.  
  53. I formatted it as internal storage on Nokia 5.1. But then, I got Infinix Note 5, I formatted it as portable. I used that same SD card on Nokia 3.1 as internal storage too. Now I'm using the same SD card on my OTG drive.
  54.  
  55. So, kindly disregard that information. [/quote]
  56.  
  57. [quote author=olayinkajnr] Actually, he can. All he has to do is to format it back, either as portable or as internal storage.
  58.  
  59. Sorry about your lost SD card. But one or two things might contribute to it getting damaged and key among them is maybe it is a fake SD card or you don't just know how to format it outside the phone. [/quote]
  60.  
  61. [quote author=okikiosibodu] Good day Fam... Pls how do you advice I format my storage as...... Internal memory or portable device (RN7)
  62.  
  63. Cc: Olayinkajnr, Genius43, GrandMufti, Gptech, Jboixxx [/quote]
  64.  
  65. [quote author=olayinkajnr] If you format it as portable devices, you won't be able to install apps on it. Only pictures, music and other files can be saved on it.
  66.  
  67. If you format as internal, it will assume the position of your internal storage. All apps will be installed on it, all apps data will be saved in it. All your pictures, music and other files will be saved on it.
  68.  
  69. Plus, it won't be as fast as when you format as portable.
  70.  
  71. If you are formatting as internal, it's advisable to use an original SD card with high read and write speed.
  72.  
  73. So you decide now. [/quote]

  76. [b]Data zapping issue?[/b]:
  77. [quote author=jboixxx post=85042768] TODAY'S TIP:
  78.  
  79. If you're experiencing data zapping on your device, kindly do this tweaking.
  80.  
  81. Settings > Sync > Mi Cloud > Disable the gallery sync.
  82.  
  83. Turning off your auto sync will disable your email sync which is not recommended for those that uses office email or have active emails.
  84.  
  85. [b]Edited:[/b]
  86. Also, you can check if your System apps updater is set to Auto updates, if it is, change to "Don't update" but leave the "Show update notifications" active.
  87.  
  88. 2. Disable your Auto updates on Google play too. How? GooglePlay > Menu > Settings > Change "Auto Update Apps" to "Don't auto update apps" and change "Auto Play videos" to "Don't Auto Play Videos".
  89.  
  90. 3) Don't forget, WhatsApp status is a data zapping feature
  91.  
  92. 4) Facebook isn't left out if your video playback is active
  93.  
  94. 5) this is rare though: Google Photos/drive auto sync (disable and change to manual sync). This is to those that prefers Google Photos to Mi Cloud like me ;D

  220. [quote author=Gptech post=78277028] Try as much as you can to avoid tapping your power button, this helps to extend its life span. To do this, enable 'double tap' to wake, then go to settings - Additional settings - buttons and gesture shortcut, then change 'turn off screen' to ' long press the home button'. Also, enable quick ball, select shortcut, and enable one of the short cuts as ' long press the power button'. That way, you only need to touch your power button only if phone somehow turns off, or you want to enter either recovery or fastboot mode.

  245.  
  246. See attached pic, that's 9pay app I'm talking about. [/quote]
  247.  
  248. You don't need the app bro.
  249.  
  250. Just go to 9pay.com.ng and register with your mobile number (9mobile number) and the Google account you use on playstore (very important).
  251.  
  252. Once done, fund the 9pay wallet that's associated with the Google account and phone number you used in registering.
  253.  
  254. Make sure you have only the 9mobile SIM inside your phone so you won't have any issue.
  255.  
  256. Open playstore once your 9pay wallet is funded, and then click the 3 dots at the uppermost left hand corner and select payment method. A new page will open and you'll see 9pay, click it and it will add automatically.
  257.  
  258. After that, you are good to go.
  259.  
  260. If there's anything that's not clear, let me know and I'll be glad to explain.
  261. [/quote]
  262. and
  263. [quote author=olayinkajnr post=78115100] [quote author=saky18] 1. Go to pay.google.com (Delete any previous profile there with Nigeria address) Settings - (scroll to last page) - Close payment profile
  264.  
  265. 2. Go to Menu (Top left) - Addresses - add new address. E.g:
  266. Country (US)
  267. First Name Last name
  268. Stanford University
  269. 450 Serra Mall
  270. Stanford, CA
  271. Zip code: 94305–2004
  272. Save
  273.  
  274. 3. Menu - Payment method (Now add your GTB MasterCard)
  275. Save
  276.  
  277. 4. Go to Playstore - Payment method (verify that your card has been added.
  278.  
  279. That's it. You can now pay for any app [/quote]
  280.  
  281. I used to use this method but I discovered that it will charge you in dollars directly which is very expensive when your bank charges you.
  282.  
  283. But with 9pay, a 500naira app will go for 530naira (30naira is VAT).
  284.  
  285. With ALAT BY WEMA, a 500naira App will go for 500naira.
  286.  
  287. With GT Master Card an 8dollars app is supposed to go for 2,800naira or less self but you'll be charged 3,200naira.

  345. I've tried EOCN off but it didn't work [/quote]
  346. This is alternative to honsule's option:
  347. Just add a unique pharse from that SMS to your block list and you're good to go.
  348. How
  349. Security > block list > gear at the top-right > SMS blocklist > keyword blocklist > add > save.

  359. In addition to TubeMate and the 'ss' method for downloading YouTube videos, you can also copy the video link, go to 'savefrom.net' and paste the link in the box. Select your preferred video format and download.
  360. For other sites apart from YouTube, you can add sfrom.net/ before the URL and hit enter that is, sfrom.net/http:// noobody.com/ and you'll get all the links for videos contained on the web page.
  361. TubeMate is tight though. [/quote]

  363. [b]Double contacts showing?[/b]
  364. [quote author=jboixxx post=59538562] For your merged contact, All I did was to delete all my contacts (including MI contacts and Google contacts via browser), disable my MI account contact backup totally and restored my vCard contact backup made on my Windows contact(I always do a vCard backup to my lappy at intervals). Then activate Google contact synchronization.
