My wife has a T-Mobile MyTouch 3G cell phone running Android software and tonight she told me about an issue she was having with her favorite Twitter application called Twidroyd. She upgraded the application as recommended by Android but then when she went to start Twidroyd after the upgrade it would crash every single time. Then she attempted to drag the application to the trash on her MyTouch desktop however that would also fail. Below I describe what steps I tried to take to remove Twidroyd and then how I was finally able to remove the application from Android.

After setting the time in my sisters Jeep Cherokee I decided I should also connect her iPhone to the Uconnect system via Bluetooth. The Uconnect system will allow you to receive calls, dial calls, etc. verbally in your car so you  don’t have to look a t your cell phone while dialing. The Uconnect system i activated by pressing the button below the rear view mirror in your Jeep Grand Cherokee and I assume that in most cases the button location is similar for other vehicles. Below are two images including a close up of the Uconnect button located to the far left of the buttons below the rear view mirror and a picture of the entire rear view mirror so you get an idea of the buttons location.

Recently I decided to split my Twitter feeds into personal and business so it would be easier to read technical tweets separate and distinct from the personal Twitter feeds I wanted to follow. So I decided to keep the first account for my personal account since my friends will already know how to find me and then open a new account for getting technical provider tweet updates and various other technical blogs Twitter feeds. So this left me with a minor issue which was my cell phone was configured already for my personal Twitter account though I needed to use it for my new account. I will be using the new account to get text messages for immediate notification if one of the providers I use is having some sort of outage.

You are only allowed to have a phone number, in this case my cell phone, configured for one Twitter account. So to accomplish my goal of splitting out the technical tweets from the personal tweets I needed to move my cell phone over to the new account. Follow the below instructions to move your mobile phone number from one Twitter account to another Twitter account.

My wife has a Google G1 phone from T-Mobile and she couldn’t get it to turn on the other day. It was stuck at a screen with the Android logo on the front and pressing any buttons would not resolve the issue. I decided to remove the battery from the G1 cell phone to make sure it completely rebooted.

Removing the battery was a task in itself. There are a bunch of videos to explain how to do this but even with the video it was hard to remove the case that covers the battery.
