I ran into an issue with Telegram after having changed the password to my Ubuntu One account the other day. Perhaps removing your ubuntu one account and then setting it up again on your phone will resolve this for you. Its more a guess than an answer though. Somebody pointed to another solution involving the manual deletion of certain files. You can find ...

Try tapping the device in the Bluetooth settings and clicking Connect. If you get a PIN prompt, there's a chance you've got the same problem as described in this question. Alternatively if it appears in your connected devices but nothing happens when you press keys, you might be having the same problem as in this question. In either of those cases, it ...

Interesting. I never experienced this, and I'm sure it's not supposed to do that (as you probably also suspect). I fiddled around to reproduce. There are no account settings in the phone other than inside the app, so I don't think there's a problem there. (like gmail has an account in system settings - accounts) I opened a webapp on my pc for Telegram, ...

I don't think this will happen very soon, because there is no need for Facebook Corporation to port their app. Like you said: If there is no WhatsApp on UbuntuPhone it won't become popular and there won't be a need to port the app to an unpopular phone (because making an app compatible with an new plattform is a very expensive task). On the other hand owns ...

yes for sure! you just have to enable it in your android settings: if you got troubles or want more clients to use this connection, you can also establish a WiFi-hotspot in the same menu (as highlighted in the picture).

Yes, Android's USB tethering shows up as an USB RNDIS device, which has been supported in the Linux kernel for several years.

Yes - it is possible to downgrade it to android and you can follow this guide - http://a25.co/ubuntu-phone-how-to-install-android/ (which is not written by me). Some of the information there is a bit outdated (the latest android for the phone at this moment is Lollipop) but the basic principle is the same. As for reverting back to Ubuntu Touch - it is ...

As for the whatsapp url you posted, thats a negative, tried it but the packages are no longer supported. There is no whatsapp for ubuntu touch. Google drive has a good mobile website, so it will be easy to go there.

The BQ Aquaris E 4.5 Ubuntu edition is a phone for early adopters: developers, enthusiasts, … That being said, I use it for work as well (dual SIM: one private, one for work) and it phones, SMSes, can add contacts, can read my mail, navigate, allow me to to read books, listen to podcasts, watch videos etc. If you want a collection of Ubuntu Touch apps ...

OK, I never heard of that device, but that shouldn't matter. The ubuntu wiki lists the devices with working ubuntu-touch ports. A look at the list shows: a) your device is not on the list, so may or may not work, at least no one has succeeded and published his result. b) the site is not that up to date, as recent shipping models are not listed. Maybe it's ...

Allview m7 Start doesn't sound so mainstream (no offense), meaning that the VendorID might be necessary to allow it to connect via USB. Weird stuff, but similar to what I experienced with different phones (Ubuntu phones, but the problem was with the PC. It could very well be that your problem is the same, and can pretty easily be fixed. Open up a terminal on ...

Sorry, but there is no app that does exactly what you want; the file manager you mentioned comes closest. Then you can access most files using a GUI and can delete anything you want. If you want to do more, you need to put your phone in developer mode and run the file manager as root as well. Warning: you can delete everything when using the root mode, ...
