Well, as far i know, the Alcatel Onetouch Firefox Os has the compass sensor buit in. So, i've installed apps for compass reading but these doesn't work properly. They intialize and stay freezed. I have installed others that use g-sensor like 'Level' and it works fine. I assume the compass sensor fails. Is there any way to test it?

Thanks in advance for answers

I have version 1.0.1 and I want to upgrade. The reason I haven't done it yet is because I recently bought the phone second hand. But I am unable to update it and what happens is the circular icon indicating that something is happening shows up, then disappears and there is no message about updating. If I cannot upgrade it, is there some other way to upgrade the browser because I cannot use it properly at the moment. Thanks

I'm running Firefox OS 1.1 in a UK ZTE Open (from Ebay Store).

I would like to call foreign numbers through a VoIP service (Jumblo, to be precise). In their website they have instructions to place a call directly instead of having to dial the target number everytime one calls their access number. It requires to dial: (access number)+(pause)+(target number).

It gives general instructions that in some phones the pause can be inserted by holding the '0', '*', or '#' keys; I tried all these approaches but none of them worked in my phone.

What is the right way to add a dialing pause in Firefox OS???

How to share internet connection from notebook to mobile phone with micro usb cord in Debian based OS? (reverse tethering)

I want to share internet connection from notebook to my mobile phone (Keon) with micro usb cord (because I don't have wifi). I found in Firefox OS (version: Boot2Gecko 1.1.1.0-prerelease) Settings only the possibility to share internet from mobile phone to PC. I use a Debian based OS: Knoppix. I tried to accomplish this with Networking Manager and I did a new wired connection via my phone with "Shared to other computers" IPv4 Settings and with FE:...:02 (usb0) MAC address. But on my phone there is not internet although the connecton between my notebook and phone is estableshed.

wpa-psk password field is too short

I'm trying to connect to a wpa wifi network which has a 64 hex character password but the password field in settings > wifi > (network) is only 63 characters long. I know that if I had an alphanumeric password 63 characters would be the limit so I guess it thinks I have one but i can't figure out how to tell it I have a 64 hex character password instead. Changing the password type is also not really an option.

Hi again: In a previous question I asked how I could update my phone living in a country that was not supported by ZTE. It worked, but everything I had on my phone was deleted. So, since I will probably have to do this again when the next update comes along, I was just wondering if there was some way to save which app's I had on my phone. Maybe some kind of automatic download, where all of the app's that I had will be downloaded again once I update. Otherwise it will get kind of tedious every time I have to update. Cheers,

Well it's pretty simple. On your website, it's written how to change the language to other languages. We can clearly see English (US) but also arabic, spanish, french, portuguese from Brazil and Chinese.

I bought a ZTE Open on Ebay and there's only English (US). I'd like to be able to install a french language pack. How can I do that?

I wounder if its possible to override the volume button on the device so it dosent change the ringtone and sms volume? I had this feature on iOS where I can set the ringtone and notification volume then a switch that sad "Change with buttons" = true || false. My Android device (Padfone2) did not have this feature and I end up missing calls and sms because you turn the volume up and down when you browse the web, listening to music ect.

Does someone know if this is possible on my ZTE Open with FFOS 1.1?

For forum: re: Tools>Options>Network>Offline Web Content and User Data, (Help) says in part, '..If you have previously blocked a website from storing data for offline use..', If this refers to the times I have 'denied' a web service from storing data on my machine, then something is wrong. I have 'denied' many such requests, yet there is nothing in the box (Exceptions) 'Offline Data'. Why is there nothing in the box, and/or how do I manually add a service to the 'blocked' box? For me, this is a real problem as I have spent as much as 5 minutes clicking on the little 'Deny' box in the request before it goes away and allows me to watch the video I wanted to watch (the little 'request' box sits right in the middle of the video box, blocking viewing of the video). Is this a problem with Adobe Flash Player Settings (whos 'request' box it appears to belong to) or a problem with the Firefox> Tools (Local Storage) settings? (a picture of this 'request box' available on request)
