How to get to your PM's using a smart phone?
« on: July 12, 2012, 10:06:02 PM »
Recently got a new Droid and, being the smart phone dummy that I am, can just barely navigate the forums.  I log in here and, when I click on my messages, I get another log in screen, much like the old one (down at the bottom of the page).  OK, I log in, again, get the big Welcome! and click my messages, only to get the log in screen once more.  Is there a trick to this that an old dog might learn?   :D

thats an odd thing, ive got a mytouch 3g slide and havent ran into the problem your having..

try this, do you have email notification checked so you get a email when you get a pm ? if you dont go to your pc and in your aacount under notifications enable email notification. then when you get a pm on ur phone check the email and click the link to reply to it and see if you still have the problem

I also have a Droid Smart Phone but seldom us it to connect to the internet. So I decided to try it and connect to the GTA and it worked fine. Checked and read several PM's with no issue. I did not even have to log in once as I had logged in before and selected to stay logged in

remember to turn your phone off and back on once a day.. turns out smart phones need to be restarted to refresh their connection to the interwebz..

if i dont do that my phone stops loading web pages and after a few days it will not load a page and give a "web page unavailable" noticed.. restart the phone and it works again

look at the settings . you might have avery important setting turned off . mine wasnt recieving emails and the phone dealer went inside and set it for me . now i get mine all the time . im not a smart phone expert so i let the dealer because im makin payments on his wages and he can return the favor haha

my phone does more then i will ever need.. but the down side is with these smart phones is the gps units

i have my gps set to off unless i use the navigation then it turns on and once i turn off the nav it turns the gps off

really guys all y ou need to do is make sure you have a list of your numbers and contacts info saved and then just play around with it.. thats it takes.. if you mess something up smart phones have a reset feature that resets it back to how it was out of the box.. take it in the store and have them back up your contacts and pictures to the sim card/mini sd card.. then you wont loose anything if you have to reset it

Like I said, I log in fine, see I have a message, press the link and it asks me to log in.  Go figure.

oh red feather did you go to settings and tell it to remember your password? there is a setting for that and when i wrote abot takin it back to the dealers i couldnt remember what she did and it just came to me . she turned the setting for remembering passwords . mine was doin what yours is doin . after she got done it works like its supposed to . but about every 30-40 times of opening a forum up like gta it will ask for your password . i dont mind that as its for safe keeping of your password so she told me . its supposed to prevent hackers . so far so good . but give that a try . sorry my foggy old brain is kinda slow at remembering stuff like that . ask me for directions , i can help, or how to work on a bulldozer or truck or tractor or gun i can help . memory works on important stuff like how much little gun gun powder to use in a 22 hornet reload . im just not into computer smartphones like the other stuff i said .

Well, I don't set up stuff to remember passwords.  That's OK since I can just log in to the pc later.  Didn't mean to use the phone for cruising since I do that too much as it is.   :D

i said the same thing but then start grabbing the phone and surfing the gta at long red lights, long lines at the store, or when im laying on the sofa or my bed and dont want to get up and go sit at the pc lol... sooner or later you will work it and come to find your using that smart phone a lot more then what you expected

This is an old thread but I wanted to add an update. I just found the smart phone address for the forum. This might help navigate it easier.
Try it and let us know.

I agree I think it's in your setup of your phone.  Maybe a stop in with your provider would help. Bring them here or better yet allow them to navigate here for you

I save the page of my threads and keep internet open but I have unlimited service. Some do not and doing this really adds up quickly.

It also could be "cookies" if your phone dosent allow them you will need to log everytime e you go here/ there / anywhere.

"Smart phones" are great once you know how to use them. Even when you get to a point you think your good. Someone shows you it can also do gib and that too and your back to square one!! Lol

Good luck!
