I got the verizon moto e with android 5.1
I have 2 problems
1) a lot of times when opening links in chrome from external apps (emails, google app) i just get a blank page, even though when in the URL bar their is all the information. (I copy the URL, open a new tab & it works)
2) I'm having problems that when connected to WiFi after a minute the connection loses its data, I'm still connected to the network, but no data. So I have to turn off the WiFi & turn it back on to get data for another minute. (Every time a go to a new page on Tapatalk, I need to disconnect & reconnect)

The AMEX app "remember my login" doesn't work for me, anyone else?

I often get this, and it stays for a while. I try resetting-doesn't help. It usually goes back at some random time.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ETA: it usually happens after turning Bluetooth off and then back on.

On Samsung you press the home key and power key at the same time for 2 seconds

Every since updating to M my contacts haven't been interacting properly with the phone app. Incoming calls aren't recognized from the contacts however they are recognized in the call history.

I cleared app and phone cashe after update, I saved my contacts offline, deleted on line and uploaded and resynced, nothing doing. I deactivated and reactivated both the contact and the phone app but issue persists.

Anyone with a fix?

An old HTC
Try pressing Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously, that's how it works on most current Android devices (dunno about older ones, do you know the model?)

My HTC one suddenly won't ring. I'm currently in Israel and with my local sim and Sprint SIM it just doesn't ring and it's not going to voicemail either.  Data works fine with both sims. Outgoing calls as well.
Any advice?

It doesn't ring, or no incoming calls?

Scratch that. Upgrading to Marshmallow seems to have fixed the problem.

If you're rooted I believe you can do it with an xPosed module, I don't think you can do it otherwise
