SMS are stored in ~/.local/share/history-service/history.sqlite which you can edit with the sqlite3 tool. I would avoid manipulating this database directly though, as it is not documented whether manipulating this file directly will cause it to lose sync with state that might be stored elsewhere.

adb shows a device only when it knows the vendor of the device. The vendor of the bq E4.5 seems not known by default. To change that edit or create the file ~/.android/adb_usb.ini and add the following line 0x2a47 That is the vendor id of the bq E4.5. Restart the adb server after you edited the file sudo adb kill-server; sudo adb start-server You ...

You must set connectivity mode of your phone into mass storage mode (MSC).

Yes, if you use Skype4Py. I've created a simple callto.py script based on examples/callfriend.py from Skype4Py. It takes a phone number or a friend name from the skype roster as an argument. It's only working if skype is already launched. Skype will ask you if you want to give API permission to Skype4Py. Code follows: #!python # ...

There is and it's called Asterisk. It's a PBX. If it's your first time using and configuring asterisk, I would HIGHLY recommend using Trixbox instead of Ubuntu until you get used to it (it can be a pain to set up). Once you're comfortable, then go back and get a juju script built for it or something ;) It is available in software center as well, just ...

Ubuntu Phone is not a specific phone, but an operating system to be run on phones. Right now, in development, the official reference models are Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4. You'll be able to install Ubuntu Phone on either of those, but keep in mind it's not meant to be ready for the public yet – and it will require you to unlock the phone. As of now, there ...

To record Skype calls, especially if you're using Ubuntu 12.04, I recommend Skype Call Recorder. (Currently the PPA that provides it easily on Ubuntu hasn't been updated to provide builds for Ubuntu releases past 12.04 LTS, but that's not a problem if you're using 12.04.) To install Skype Call Recorder on Ubuntu, the easiest way is probably to use this PPA. ...

You mentioned having played Pathwind; did you by any chance mute the sound in Pathwind? There's a known bug whereby muting the sound in Pathwind mutes the sound for the rest of the system as well -- this can be fixed by just relaunching Pathwind and unmuting the sound.

Ubuntu touch does not allow USB interaction as long as the phone screen is locked. Even if it is only locked by slide, this can block the interaction. I also made sure my screen doesn't lock after idleness, so this locking doesn't happen halfway through a transfer. Also, ~/.android/adb_usb.ini on your computer is a list of valid vendorIDs that are allowed ...

Since you mentioned RJ11 this likely means you have a standard modem in your computer, this usually means that you need a softphone sometimes called a telephony application that uses the modem to accept and initiate calls using PSTN. If you can find any such application for Ubuntu that you can install and run properly, what you ask may work, I do not know ...

No it won't. Jailbrocken iDevice are only just having root access the device. The bootloader to these devices are locked and they will only boot iOS. And also the android phones whose bootloader are locked can't install it.

I know that some bluetooth devices will not connect with a phone I used to have. There seems to be some incompatibilities between different BT devices, and there is not much that could be done there. So far, Bluetooth was more trouble that it was worth it. I also had issues with such keyboards that would always disconnect. I know this is not the answer you ...

gnome-phone-manager and Gnocky rely on http://www.gnokii.org/ (Wammu and Gammu are forks of that) all Nokia are fully supported, others have basic support (phonebook).

SIP Clients These all are SIP clients which means they all can be used to call each other and they just need a SIP address (like your mobile number) . You can also register to a commercial VoIP provider(which supports SIP) to place calls to normal phone line or cell phone . You can get a free SIP address from here. Ekiga (available in the software center) ...

Wammu (Click To install) It works with any phone that Gammu supports, including many models from Nokia, Siemens, and Alcatel. It has complete support (read, edit, delete, copy) for contacts, todo, and calendar. It can read, save, and send SMS. It includes an SMS composer for multi-part SMS messages, and it can display SMS messages that include pictures. ...

While USB Debugging option is disabled Samsung Galaxy SII is working as a MTP device and in this case Ubuntu can not see files on the phone. When I enable USB debugging option and connect my phone with USB cable Ubuntu recognise my phone as USB mass storage device and I can access my files.

The way to get direct USB access to files on the Galaxy is as posted here: http://www.tuxtrix.com/2011/07/how-to-access-samsung-galaxy-s-ii-usb.html This is not about USB debugging but simple telling the Galaxy to connect its storage to PC via USB: On the Galaxy do: Menu -> Settings -> Wireless and network -> USB utilities -> Connect Storage to PC

I'm a Software Developer at Canonical, author of Ubuntu One Files. We have this feature on our TODO list as it has also been requested by other users via support email. Thus, we plan to implement this in Ubuntu One Files, stay tuned.

You can manage which devices have access to your Ubuntu One account. Simply go into your account settings and delete the stolen phone.

I would advise you to download the firmware of Samsung Galaxy Europa Gingerbread from Sammobile , then install Heimdall to install the firmware onto your device. But make sure your phone is unlocked before doing so.

the best method i found was to use airdroid which works over your wifi and with your browser. you just install the app and follow the simple instructions. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5zYW5kLmFpcmRyb2lkIl0. you can access all the great things on your phone :-) you can ...

I don't own any wp devices. So this answer goes in kind of assumption and internet research. Anyone wants to correct any information, please do so. Windows Phone 8 only Support MTP and has no Native Mass Storage Support. But you said, it is not even detected on Windows 8 , that is a bit confusing. However, since Windows phone uses MTP, so only we need ...

There are few discussions with respect to this but they all seem to stop in 2006. The most recent post I have found is: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=111225 But again this one is from 2006. Can I ask why not just use VOIP?

My first question is if ubuntu for android is really the full operating system that lets you run programs just like a desktop pc? Is it super slow where it takes many minutes to load up ubuntu? I don't need blazing speeds, but I'd like something useable. This is Ubuntu for Android. It's not a "mobile version" of Ubuntu. It's a special build of ...

As you can see, in the status bar, you must see 3G (Note that your wifi must be disconnect) Please, check if the tick 2G/3G (see red dot) is marked at System Settings > Mobile:
