My DINC is stuck on the HTC Incredible white screen?
Hey guys, quick question regarding facebook syncing with your phone contacts I think this is a cool feature as long as it only syncs with the names in your contact list, but not adding all your facebook friends to your phone, but I was wondering, Does syncing all these pictures and e-mail with contacts (say you have 2-300) use up a lot of storage space?? Would it be better to not sync them for the sake of storage? Thanks
After the update to Android 2.1 on my HTC Hero, like many other people, I had problems syncing my phone contacts to my facebook contacts. The process com.htc.bgp constantly force closed, and no linking could be made or is some cases only a part of the facebook contacts were synced. Different fixes has been suggested by users online but none of them worked. But after a lot of trying, a combination of these fixes finally solved the problem for me. Now all my facebook contacts are available to link to my phone contacts. Here's what I did and what you can try: 1. On your computer, go to Facebook Account Application settings. Remove applications Facebook for Android and HTC Sense. Log out of Facebook. 2. On your phone, remove any all Facebook programs or widgets you might have installed. 3. Go to Settings Accounts and delete your Facebook for HTC Sense account. The settings Background data should be checked and Auto-sync unchecked. 4. Go to Settings Applications Manage applications. Enter each of the following applications and click Clear data: a. Calender b. Calender Storage c. com.htc.socialnetwork.accountmanager d. com.htc.socialnetwork.provider e. Facebook for HTC Snese f. Gmail g. Gmail Storage h. My Uploads i. PC Synchronization 5. Restart your phone. 6. Connect to the internet. 7. Start the Photos program 8. At the bottom there should be a facebook icon. Click it and log in to your facebook account. 9. Let all the contacts download. 10. Go to your contacts (People), and now your old Facebook connections should slowly start to appear, and you should be able to link the contacts to your facebook contacts. It might take a while but have patience! Perhaps one or a few of these steps are not necessary, but at least its what worked for me and hopefully it will help some of you.
How do I remove Facebook from my phonebook, there all wrong, all the pictures are messed up.
When I pull up the phone on my Incredible, it lists every contact in the world, including everyone from Facebook. I went into my sync settings and unsynced Facebook contacts, but they're still showing up in my phonebook.
I am using the People widget to display the Favorites group on one of my panels. I figured out how to get the picture from the phone to be the one used for the contacts, but three of them keep reverting to the facebook pictures and I can't figure out why. I found this thread: http://androidforums.com/support-troubleshooting-incredible/96176-android-contacts-revert-facebook-pictures-how-stop.html But there is no real answer there, and while the problem is similar, it isn't exactly the same.
Contacts from my phone randomly go missing.. The same thing happens to my contacts in my gmail account too.. !! Anybody as any idea why ? Anybody else faced the same ?
Every time I add a new contact it goes under "phone". I'd like it to go under "Google" where it would sync and be done with, but I also would like the current 6 I have under "Phone" to go to "Google".
So back when I first got my phone I was putting in contacts the dumb way selecting "phone contact" rather than putting them in under my google account. I also have a bunch of contacts recovered from backup assistant. Since I am constantly flashing new roms it has come to my attention that there isn't always Verizon Back up Assistant support on them. Take for example CM6-RC3, I love the rom, totally and completely....except when I try and run Back Up, it says it isn't compatible with the program and recommends uninstall. So my specific inquiry to all the great rooted Dinc users out there is, is there an easy way to turn all those annoying "phone"/old non google contacts into google contacts without doing each one individually on my computer/phone?
I accidentally saved a few contacts to my phone instead of my google account. Is there any quick way to fix this?
I just switched from an iphone 3g to the incredible yesterday. At the Verizon store he transferred my contacts from the iPhone to the Incredible. Now my contacts are displayed as "Phone" contacts but not synced to Gmail. Is there a way to sync my phone contacts to my gmail account?
Well, I seem to either A) have a problem or B) it's a problem just in general.I have Facebook installed, and there's obviously Facebook for HTC Sense. I want to sync my Facebook account and only that. I don't personally care to use the Sense inspired widgets because I like my streams separate.Anyway, I go into the Accounts menu in settings and removed the Facebook for Sense account and tried to add a new account, but whenever I click Facebook, it does absolutely nothing.I don't understand what's going on. If anyone has any clue, I'd love to hear it!
Just got my wildfire, running android 2.1 and cannot obtain an IP address from my TP Link TD W8920G router. log in the password etc and it just keeps getting stuck in a loop saying 'obtaining IP address', then unsuccessful. I've tried manually adding the phone's MAC address to the router configure, and have assigned an IP address to the phone, following advice on other forums. I've upgraded the router's firmware, and I've rebooted the router. I've attempted to 'use static IP' but truth be told i don't really know what that means.
I cant sync my contacts into my phone.
I just installed the Jager 1.6.1 ROM and I have Facebook (not for sense). I noticed that in my contacts, I can't link to Facebook, but Flickr is there. As well, in accounts & sync, I can't add facebook, even though it's in the list.
Do we know how it syncs your contacts with facebook yet? I dont want it to put all my fb friends in my contacts list I do want to be able to link my current contacts to there relevant profiles on facebook. Can anyone just explain or show the contacts and how it seperates them from facebook n stuff
Searched through the forums, didn't see a similar topic discussed. Just happened a few days ago, where one of my contacts on my phone from Gmail that was linked to Facebook all of a sudden is unlinked. When I tried to relink to fix it, the contact doesn't appear on the list to link. Going into the Facebook app, the contact is listed there. Anyone run into this or have any idea how to fix? Tried a reset already, after backing up apps/messages.
I have added all my old phone contacts, and also got all my gmail contacts onto my HTC desire. Obviously there are lots that need linking. I have read that the notification area should now show an icon indicating that there are 'matched contacts suggestions' but it does not. I can go through individual contacts and link them, but I need to do them all in one go... I have tried syncing my gmail account but still nothing. I dont care about facebbook right now. I have searched on the firum but pretty much every post is about facebook. Ideally i just want all my contacts merged on the gmail account or for 'people' to show a merged list. Can anyone help me figure out why the notification icon wont show me there are matched contacts suggestions so i can see a list of all the suggestions?
I downloaded Jager Rom from ROM Manager and really....really want to get rid of the boot noise. It announces that I'm messing with my phone to the entire office. I looked in /data/local and don't see it. Anyone know where to kill this annoyance? Otherwise, I like the ROM and I'm switching back and forth between Virtuous for Sense and Jager for nonsense.
So I installed the Jager ROM over the weekend, and today I had a problem with the SU program included not working. This sucks because now I can not back anything up or do anything that requires SU privies. The SU program just force closes when it comes up in any program that needs it. I downloaded another SU program but the old one always comes up. Is there a way to change this or uninstall the other one. I found the same one in the market but it wont install. Maybe cause its read only?
When on the Google search page l keep getting location unavailable. When I use maps I do get a valid location as well as with Weather Bug. I do have location services on.
I have found a slight issue with the Jager Sense rom, which other than this is so full of win. I am using Handcent and my phone it will no longer send MMS messages. It just acts like it's sending, indefinitely. I noticed in Titanium that there was an app called Messages 1.00, which cannot be installed back to the phone from there. I believe that this app not being installed is the cause of the issue, but I don't see it in the the Backup folder. What the heck is the technical name for this app, so I can push it back. I know kind of a stupid ?? It's been a long day.
if you can get facebook to give you a notification when a new message or comment or whatever is posted / sent to you. up in the notification bar on the home screen i get my gmail alert and text alert but am unable to get a facebook alert. any suppestions?
Ive had the incredible since it came out i thought i would just get used to not having all my facebook contact numbers in the same "list" as my normal contacts but i haven't and idk if im the only one with this problem but is there a way to get facebook numbers and such to be added to favorites or anything like that cuz there a couple of friend i haven't talked to or anything cuz i forget i have there number i mean the Droid was able to what the heck htc.
I have my People app set up to pull Google and Phone only. Facebook is not selected. When you go into People and hit Search "magnify icon". That thing pops up everybody in Facebook. Also, when you go to Phone, and start typing it pulls up Facebook contacts. I don't mind the sync from Facebook to people I actually talk to that are in my phone. I just don't want to see every FB friend. Am I missing another setting?
I logged out of Facebook through the Android App then logged in and all is well. I dont know why it had to come to that, it should do it automatically.I have even done battery pulls which should theoretically log me out, oh well, it works now.I have done some searching around and there was a problem with Facebook a couple weeks back, but I dont think this has anything to do with that. I added a new friend on Facebook on the 25th of July, I also added them manually into my People on my Inc. For whatever reason when I go to the Link part of the contact and go to the Facebook Link, it says to pick from my friends. He does not show up in my friends if I am browsing through the link area. I can go to facebook from the phone and from the computer and he is there. It is making me insane.Also the profile pics are not updating, and havent for many months. My wife's picture has not changed on my phone's end in 4 months, but on the actual Facebook site it has.
I recently upgraded from an Eris to the Incredible.. when the 2.1 came down OTA for the Eris I could then go into my people, click on their picture which then brought up a menu with photos that represented actions (call, text, email, etc.) One of these pictures was a Facebook icon. This brought me right to that persons Facebook profile using the Facebook for Android widget. Now that I have the Incredible, this Facebook icon is not there. What's up with that? I mean I can click on their name, then "go to Facebook profile" but this isn't the same I can only then access their info and/or wall, none of their photos, etc. This phone makes me actually have to go into the Facebook for Android widget itself then search friends and then get to someone's profile. I miss the icon option on my Eris, but they both run 2.1, shouldn't the Incredible have this option too?
Back when my friend first got her Droid, she showed me that she synched her Facebook account to her phone and all of her contacts were from Facebook. Does this still work the same way for HTC's Sense UI?I know that you can synch your Facebook account to the Incredible but does it actually make all of your contacts your Facebook friends? This is a feature I would like alot because all of my friends that I am close with are my FB friends and I really like having all of my contacts have pictures and their full names.
Anyone having issues syncing their facebook contacts? For some reason I am only getting some of them to sync, but not all. I've done a few force synchronizations and made sure everything is enables and logged in correctly, as far as I can tell.
Just got my new incredible and loving it!! One question, how do I get my facebook friends to NOT show up in my "people" or contacts section? I only want the people that I manually enter to show up. I searched and found one other thread but I couldn't figure out what they said.
So I logged out of my FB account in the "Accounts & Sync" section, and then I logged back in... don't ask why... I just did it lol... my problem now is that it won't download my contacts. When I go to People, slide over to Global, tap on Facebook and hit refresh...
I have no clue what's going on here but TB won't restore my contacts.I had 2.1 and installed the older 2.2 leak from over a month ago and was able to restore contacts then via TB (although I don't exactly remember how).I wanted the new 2.2 and downgraded the radio and returned to stock, did unrevoked forever and put 2.2 on my phone.I restored all my apps but the contacts are gone.They aren't stored on VZW or Google either.Am I missing something?I went through the system stuff in TB and clicked on everything that was green and restore app and data several times and then I restored just data a few times too and still nothing.I know my contacts are saved in here somewhere.
When I go to individual contacts and try to link them, nothing ever shows up. My brother got a Droid X last night and when he installed the FB app it automatically synced the pictures for him. I re-installed my app and didn't get that option. How do I do this?
This seems to be a very annoying feature if there is not a way to disable it (and I can't find one). I have my google contacts all set up and they are the only things I want in my phone book. I know in "people" I can just show google, but when I got to dial a number, all of my facebook friends with numbers show up too. For some reason they are showing up in my google contacts too (when I log into gmail on my computer). It is nice how the facebook picture syncs with my contacts, but that is all I want, not everyone on else facebook who are not in my google contacts.
Some of my contacts photos update, some never do, some do it randomly. Yes I sync, I update through the contact, I've tried everything I can think of. Whats the trick here? Yes they are all linked because they have pictures but some have pictures from 5 months ago!
Does anybody know how to do this. There isnt an option to remove them.
I'm wondering why in the new 2.1 update they decided to force your phone-book to be populated with ALL of your Facebook contacts, rather then the ones you manually put in. I certainly have a lot more friends on Facebook then I care to have in my phone-book. Is there a site where we can petition this issue?
Anyone know how I can stop my Sim contacts showing up when I go to text someone. I am also getting my phone contacts also so its double contacts I am getting when I try to text. Just want one or the other. Not both.
I want to have my contacts linked with their facebook but I DO NOT want all of my facebook contacts in my contacts list. How can I do this? Also when I got to Settings>Accounts and Sync it won't let me add the "Facebook" Account (not facebook for HTC Sense) When I press "Facebook" it doesn't respond. I thought if I linked regular facebook instead of the one for HTC sense that my contact problem would be solved but it is not letting me do this. Any one else have the same problem?
I ve with my HTC Desire. Let me explain : When I go on PEOPLE I see my contacts there , if I click on them I cant see any phone number or mail nothing it just show me the contact name then under the name I see DETAILS then INFORMATION and down I can read ringtone and send to voicemail and then last Edit. Why is that? I dont think is normal and honestly makes me really depressed coz I cant call normally.
Can someone tell me how all of my friends got synced into my Gmail contacts, thus are on my phone now I see everyone begging and trying to find a way to do it LOL LOL, finding programs, when mine just happened with me doing nothing I was thinking that I would try to find a way to UNDO it, seeing as how I actually don't want to call most of these people daily, by mistake (not that I don't want to talk to them, but with the hours i keep, most there I would not want to call at 3 am) might someone help me figure out how it happened without an ap, wiithout getting Firefox, exporting contacts, importing them into its toolbar, some really crazy stuff
Is there any way to automatically sync all your facebook contacts with Gmail contacts? My Incredible syncs some of the contacts but not all of them. I know there is the option to "link" information on your contacts but I have a huge number that have not linked and it would be a paint to manually go through all of them and do this on a contact by contact basis.
When I go to sync my contacts with my Gmail account my phone only registers only half my contacts. Here is what it is doing it shows some as google contacts on my phone and the remaining ones it shows them listed as phone. I cannot figure out how to fix this.
I wanted to change the Google account that my phone was linked to, so I cleared the google app. Now when I try to sign in using my google account to link the phone with the phone (the new one or the old one) it asks for my login info, then says Signing in and says it may take up to 5 minutes. Then it gives me a message that says: "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server. This could be a temporary problem or your SIM card may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call Customer Care." I have called customer care and they can't figure it out. They told me I need to go to a Sprint Store that does service, but there isn't one very close to me, so I'd rather not take half a day to drive there if I don't have to. I have full bars and everything else works great. I can get my email, use the internet and do everything else that doesn't require the use of the google account. But I can't use the google mail feature or go to the Marketplace. I'm using 1.56.651.2 and haven't really done anything else to the phone as far as changing settings or rooting or anything.
Can someone tell me if it is possible, to change my now phone contacts on Hero, to google contacts, so i can save all my contacts on my googlemail account.
There are 1000 people trying to get their phone contacts to become google contacts, but i want my google contacts to become phone contacts so i can get them to sync to my windows contacts.
how do i do this? it only seems to import Sim contacts.
I have been trying to figure this out and can't. I have all my contacts set up under people. But, when I tap "phone" I get all those people PLUS everyone on my dang facebook. I didn't set it up like that so I'm assuming it has to do with either friendstream or facebook syncing. I don't necessarily want ALL those people in my contacts. Is there a way to change that?
When I hit the "phone" button on my HTC wildfire it brings up all my contacts on both my SIM card and in the phone memory. Is there anyway that I can see just the SIM card contacts as it shows up all of my contacts twice! When I hit the HTC people button it will just bring up a list of each contact only once, but this takes a few seconds to load.
I want to transfer my contacts from SIM to PHONE and i cannot find out how.
I just got my first smart phone yesterday, HTC wildfire. I finally got my contacts onto it by using bluetooth, HTC Sync did not work for me, it was trying to connect but timed out every time. My question is: I have 3 versions of the same contact, each with a different numbers - I can link the contacts that are on the phone but not the one that is on the SIM card. How can I transfer the contact from the SIM to the phone so that I can link all 3?
Stock DINC w/Froyo. I can easily upload pictures via WiFi/3G from Gallery because both Facebook and Facebook for HTC Sense are shown on the Share menu. But when I try to upload videos, the Share menu doesn't have either Facebook option. What gives? The only way I have been able to upload videos to FB is to connect the DINC to my computer and use the video upload feature in FB in my computer browser. Any suggestions?
Ok everyone. I searched but didn't see anything quite similar so wanted to post. Do any of you know how to remove the Facebook and Flickr tabs at the bottom of the Gallery page? I've attached a screenshot. They don't go away apparently when I remove the apk files but figured they had to be configured somewhere though it's probably compiled into the gallery app. BTW: I know I can just uncheck the box in settings to show the tabs but I'd like to remove them completely. If there is would you please let me know?
Last night i setup my gmail account using the gmail app. I noticed this morning when i was going to text message that every email address i have ever email in gmail is under my contacts on the text message screen. Is there any way to remove them?
Is there a app out there will back up all my phone contacts to the sd card?
I'm am trying to link some phone contacts to my facebook friends. Most of them work, but sometimes when I manually try to link someone and "pick a facebook friend off the facebook friend list, sometimes my friends don't show up on that list?
I've had my (generic) Desire for a few weeks now, and have a really nagging/annoying problem in that, where i've added contacts (on the phone memory) and then synced with facebook, it's pulling in their mobile phone number from facebook, but is defaulting to 447584... and will not let me call the contact without first editing the number to read 07584... The only way around this so far as i can tell, is to manually add the number again as a 'Home' number but with a 0 in place of 44, as re-adding as a mobile just defaults back to the 447584... and then assigning the 'Home' number as the primary contact number. Does anyone have any ideas whether this is a bug or something i've done myself, and also whether there is a way i can update my whole phonebook to change the 44's for 0's rather than manually going through and changing them?
i've just upgraded to the Desire & am liking many things in it, but this issue bugs me:i've synced & linked the contacts in my 'people' app. in some cases, this involved linking the FaceBook profile of a person with a pre-exisitng phone number in my phone/sim card.The problem is that the phone seems to default to the Facebook 'profile picture' as the icon/photo that shows up in my People app (for that contact), even if tell it not to.I've tried downloading new pics, or taking a photo with the camera, and then manually setting this as the 'icon' for a certain person. This works for a while (a few hours?) and then within one day, the phone automatically re-sets this icon & replaces it with the Facebook profile pic. again.
I have the HTC Incredible and use the Facebook app. Yesterday I added a new friend and she doesn't show up on my friend list in the Facebook app and I can't link her phone number with her profile because it doesn't show up. Any ideas? I've tried resyncing and restarting the phone. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the app.
I accidentally linked 1 phone number with two facebook profiles. Is there anyway to remove either of these? I tried deleting the number and re-adding it, but both facebook profiles were still linked to the number.
It's pretty annoying when I click phone at the bottom and see a bunch of friends from facebook that I dont talk to on the phone but on facebook in my phone book. I tried figuring out how to erase all facebook contacts from my phonebook but I couldn't. What I did notice what I did what I liked that it did link a lot of people from my facebook to current contacts with images. But I'll have to do this manually. Is there anyway to delete "Facebook Friends" from current phonebook? The only way I know how NOT to see facebook friends in your phone book is if you just go to people and don't click on Phone at the home screen which I always do...
Over the last couple of weeks, I've had some problems with Facebook for HTC (between contacts and FriendStream). Through performing some fixes, I've had to remove my Facebook account from the phone, and set it up again twice. Well tonight, after removing the account, I could not get ANY of my contacts to show up at all. This includes my regular Google contacts (not just the ones synced with FB. It looked like the phone was trying to sync and never loading when I opened the people app.Well, this went on for about an hour with no luck, even with rebooting several times. I finally decided to setup my Facebook account again. Sure enough, once I setup the FB account, all of my contacts showed up fine with no syncing issue. The problem is, now when I go into a contact that has no FB contact link, press the "link" icon on the top right, select Facebook, it lists multiples of ALL of my Facebook friends. Almost as if each time I setup my Facebook account again, it just re-imported all of my FB friends without replacing them.How can I delete these duplicates, or even all of my Facebook contacts / friends from my phone, and re-import them? Anyone else have this issue? It seems that removing my Facebook account from my phone not only causes problems with all of my regular Google contacts, but also doesn't delete the Facebook friends left behind on the phone.
On my Nexus One, when adding contacts in the phone or in Gmail, they would show up on both the phone and Gmail contacts on my PC. With my Incredible, when I add contacts in Gmail, they show up on my phone, but not vice versa. How can I add contacts to my phone so that they will become Gmail contacts?
Is there a way to somehow link a contact's address to a calendar event? For instance, if I have a meeting at Joe Bob's office, I'd like to be able to type in Joe Bob's name in the event location field on the calendar and have it insert the address for me, instead of having to switch to contacts, find Joe Bob, copy Joe Bob's address, switch back to calendar, and paste the address.
I thought that if we sync'd facebook to the Hero that people's display pictures would automatically become their contact photo on the hero.can someone tell me if this is possible and how they've done it?
i recently installed a rom using rom manager. I installed skyraider 3.0 rc3 with sense and everything is fine except when i use the navigation, it stays on the searching for gps or loading screen forever and doesnt work. Do u guys know what i can do to fix this without having to change the rom or unrooting? also, if i have the free version of rom manager, does it only allow me to download one rom cause when i try to download another it says download error?? also, is it easy to switch between roms or do u have to restore the phone/reboot it and then download a new rom??
Set up my Incredible yesterday.Everythings working well except one weird issue.It appears that it pooled ALL of the contacts exchange contacts, Facebook phone numbers/emails, and every single gmail address I've ever emailed before.When I compose a new text, and select the little person icon to find who to send it to, it brings up a list of at least 3,000 contacts.Everything from unsubscribe email addresses to craigslist to 5 different phone numbers listed for someone off Facebook.Is there anyway to prevent this or remove it? In "People" it's correct, only shows the contacts from my Exchange server and everything looks good. But going to compose a new text (or typing a new gmail email) it brings up EVERYTHING.
I set up HTC sync and Facebook and all that jazz. However, there are a few people in my Facebook Contacts list that I don't really want to have in my contacts list. I don't dislike them to the point where I'd want to un-friend them on facebook, but I don't really want their number to be in my phone. Does anybody know any way to delete a single facebook contact from your phone? Click and hold doesn't work, going to their "people" tab doesn't work, I can't figure it out...
I'm not sure if anyone has already figured this out but I just did it by accident a few minutes ago. If your facebook contact has changed their picture and you want to update it on your phone, go to People > Online Directory > Facebook > Click refresh. It updates everyones pictures so it may take a while if you have a lot of contacts.
I've tried to search the forums and also google about my problem, but I haven't found a solution yet.I am trying to link my Facebook account via HTC Sense sync, but I'm getting this message when I try to sync my facebook contacts:"Sorry!The process com.htc.bg has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."I then tried to manually add my facebook contacts via the contact list, but my facebook friends aren't showing up.
on my droid eris, when i press on a contact's picture, a quick contact pop-up appears with a link to their facebook profile. See here But when i do the same thing on my incredible, it doesnt show up. What can i do to make it show up?
I thought I had read something about this before, but now I can't put my finger on it. Is the initial synch between Gmail contacts and Facebook using e-mail addresses or contact names? In other words, if I'm using only first names for some contacts will it find their Facebook profiles or will I have to change the contact names to full names? My Incredible is arriving today (can't wait) and just want to know if I need to update my contacts.
I've rooted my Dinc and got skyraider 2.5.2 with full backup through titanium and nandroid. Here are my questions. 1) Is there a way to transfer the exact status of my previous contact to my new rom? I've linked and synced all my contacts with facebook and stuffs and it looks like all those links have been disconnected. I don't want to link again manually. 2) Why does titanium not backup SMS? I've restored my titanium backup and none of my SMS got restored. Luckly I've used SMS Backup & Restore to backup, so that's not a problem, but I was wondering if I'm misssing something in titanium. 3) When I'm restoring apps with titanium, I have to keep giving permissions to install apps (clicking install button). I have around 80 apps, and I would much prefer if it's automatic without asking for my permission. Is there a way to do that?
I do like sense, but would love to know what the differences are. I think id like to see a video if possible
I just got my Desire a few days ago, and so far i am very pleased with it (coming from a Nokia N95 8GB). I do find the contact handling somewhat counter intuitive however. For example , i have some contacts from facebook for which i have no other contacts created, but i need to add additional information (in particular phone numbers). I do not seem to be able to add information to a facebook contact. Do i really need to manually create another contact, then manually give it the same name and then link it to the facebook profile in order to have a place to add the phone number?
When some of the contacts I had linked from facebook got merged, it brought an additional OUTDATED phone number with it in addition to the number I had already added for this contact in the phone (the correct number). I can not figure out how to delete the outdated number from the contact.
So i was quite surprised to see that the facebook integration on the tattoo doesn't extend to importing Facebook Contact's phone numbers. and the only way i know of to get them is through adding a 'live folder' to the homescreen through the official facebook app found on other android phones but not the tattoo Any ideas?
You can't even read an entire address (city/zip code). If I am doing something wrong please let me know or if you know of an alternative address book please share.
I'm using Handcent (recent convert from BB) I have a few shortcuts setup for frequent persons I text but wondered the fastest way to compose a text for a random person in my address book. Here's what I've done: 1. press Handcent 2. press top left icon for new message 3. press + sign 4. scroll list for contact 5. press check mark 6. press check mark to select mobile phone 7. press ok 8. press menu 9. press "end select" 10. compose text. so, that's nuts. The other way I've tried is: 1.press people shortcut 2. scroll list for contact 3. press contact 4. Look at the 3 entries for "send message" (my example contact) and try and remember which is the cell phone. 5. press send message. 6. compose text So I guess the second way is better but I'd rather not have to figure which is the cell phone and rather than scrolling to find the name I'd rather type first letters of name.
This is hard to explain, and I've searched (probably badly) and can't find the answer.If I hit the "phone" button on my cdma hero, it pulls up a list of people that have called or been called recently. Let's say one of those is in my contact list (my wife, for example), and she has multiple numbers (work, cell, etc.).I know i can click the little card on the left side, but it would be great to be able to swipe side to side on her to switch numbers, but that doesn't seem to work.You would think it would b/c there are little arrows beside the number for people that I have multiple numbers on.Is there any way to do this?
I currently have a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Mbl Ph ... I wanna merge ALL my Nokia contacts, over to the Htc Desire.? I have aprox 800 odd contacts I wanna put into the new phone ... Does anyone know how to do this.? - I do have Nokia OVI Suite, no option to export to CSV tho.?
So in early May, I got the Android update thing for my Droid Eris. I started it, and it took forever. Ever since then, I can't link my Facebook account to my phone. I've seen a lot of similar situations but nothing exactly the same. I can't link any of my phone contacts to my Facebook contacts. I have the Facebook for HTC Sense and the Facebook app. I can log on and view my Facebook accout, etc but when I go to People my contacts don't have pictures. I've tried to go to menu > settings > account & sync and remove my Facebook for HTC Sense account and manually sync or whatever. Still didn't work. A "force close" message appears every time I try to sync, yet my Google accounts will sync. I've tried going to each contact and manually link them to their Facebook profile but nothing even loads, as in it will say I have no friends to choose from (whomp whomp). I finally gave in and installed that Sync My Pix app but I'm not satisfied. Mainly, because that app saves all the contacts pictures in my photo albums and it doesn't do their status updates, etc. Really, I just don't want an app to make my phone do something it's already suppose to do.
Been searching around for a while and found some posts with no replies on other forums for this annoying issue.I have my contacts linked manually with my Facebook friends list. Pictures are working and everything seems fine on that front.In the link screen I can hit the drop down to choose the contact name to display in the People widget, and I can choose between my phone contact name and the Facebook profile name.The problem is that if I choose the Facebook name (usually first and last, which I like, since in my phone I have some people in under nicknames, or just first name, etc.) it only temporarily remembers that change. Within a day or so I will open up People and the display name will be back to the original. Example: Contact in phone named John, linked to a facebook account called John Smith In the Link screen I click the drop down for his name, and choose John Smith (which is labled as a facebook account) as the Contact Name The next day when I open People the contact is listed as simply John again.Anyone have any ideas?I don't want to go through my whole list retyping peoples names, especially when there is a feature that should make it a simple pick list.
It seems neither the Facebook synced birthdays along with the birthday dates manually input into contacts profiles don't show on the calendar. Any quick way of getting around having to do this manually?
I kind of like how 2.2 includes Facebook events in my calendar, but what I don't like is that everyone's birthday is showing up twice.
Has anyone noticed the difference from the Droid Incredibles contact search and the Droid X's search. I loved the way the DInc searches for the names. I just upgraded to the DX and that is one issue I'm not too found of. Does anyone have any ideas how or what app could install for searching all your contacts like the DInc does? You just type (on the dialer) the persons name or number and it comes up with the names in a list
I cannot remember where you can change the setting so your phone will not sync with your entire gmail contact list.
Because I use gmail my contacts list on google is an insane mess...to deal with this I have my hero only sync my contacts in a group called, obviously enough "Contacts" - this is great - it gives me just the phone numbers of the people I actually call and speak with....but occasionally I do need to access a contact that I don't want saved to my permanent contact list...how do I view these contacts? Is there a way?
My wife upgraded from her Eris to the Incredible. She couldn't remember her gmail password, so we couldn't just transfer her contacts. I opened a new gmail account for her, then activated her phone on my number. I tried to sync her Eris with google, with the idea that she could sync with her Incredible. Unfortunately, the contacts won't sync.
I have searched around on this and other forums, looking for the answer to a question that has been bugging me since before the weekend.I got the HTC desire on friday (love the phone!) and have got to the point where most of the things are set up how I want. I have used HTC sync to import my contacts from Outlook where they were already set up how I wanted. However I can't seem to be able to import these contacts back up to my Google account though. I have turned on all the sync settings and checked these, but nothing seems to work.I tried creating a dummy contact in my google account and prompted a sync from my phone which pulled this down ok. So this would indicate that the sync seems to work one way, but wont pull my contacts back up the other.I don't really want to re-enter all my contacts into my Google account to get the sync working properly plus I am assuming this will create a duplicate of every contact already on my phone.
Is it possible to have multiple gmail accounts synced to the phone? Also, say I sync multiple accounts to the phone, are they all equal or is the 1st account created when the phone is initially set up the main account? can I change this?
I am trying to my mom to my "favorites" screen on one of my homepages. The funny thing is, she is not listed when I hit the + key. Yet if I go to people, her name is there. I also noticed that the contact list that came up on the favorites screen was much shorter than the contacts I have listed under people. Could some of them be on the SD card? How do I get them merged? Or am I off base?
