      I was having that problem. I had Verizon replace it free of charge. No problems since.

    Do you know how to remove it as well from the Notification drawer? So annoying. THANKS!

    36. TURN OFF WIFI REMINDERS

    If you hate the small pop up that WiFi is available when launching an app you can turn this off easily.

    Go to Settings -> WiFi-> tap on the three dots -> Advanced -> Notify Me -> Off.

    This won’t keep the information out of the Notification Drawer, but it will stop a pop up from getting between you and your apps.

    Is there a way to have the dial pad automatically appear during a call when the phone is turned to enter extensions, menu choices, etc? The rather small phone pad button is precariously close to the “end call” button.

This is the easiest and most financially rεwarding job I’ve ever had. I actually started 8 months ago and this has totally changed my life. Source …http://alturl.com/rzaxd

    Is there a way to quickly set the screen to sleep, other than the power button? the power button on top is not very accessible, so I’m happy that I can now unlock with a double tap, but I’d love to also be able to lock and sleep the phone with a gesture or short cut.

    I cannot get HTC One M8 to connect to a Samsung hdtv via MHL to HDMI adapter with power supply and HDMI cable. Has anyone been successful or can it only be done using the HTC media link accessory? I want to mirror my phone on the tv without using WiFi. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    When my phone is locked, I find I cannot answer an incoming call…I lose it, then have to call the individual back. Is there a way to keep my phone locked and receive calls?

    Jane, if you go into phone book select the right hand top menu, select manage contacts, import from SIM, select phone, then go to the left drop-down menu (it might say contacts SIM) then select phone and deselect SIM. Exit back to phone and select your contact, when you select edit a small camera symbol should appear at the bottom left of the blank picture.

    On the M7 I had a secure inbox and a blocked messages inbox but the M8 doesn’t have one. Does anyone know how to activate them? Guides show how to do it but my phone doesn’t have those options.

    Also I blocked someone and their texts still appear.

    Any help would be nice. Thank you.

    Please, please can you tell me how to stop my music player on the HTC ONE M8 from automatically downloading all sorts of short songs and rings tone that I do not want or need. To day over 300 have been downloaded, some only 5 seconds long. There is no option in the menu for the music player to delete or stop them being downloaded. Help please.
