Android :: Application To Link Contacts - How To Delete Unwanted?
Nov 28, 2010
After backing up my contacts I now have two main problems and can't find an easy fix.
a) I have numerous duplicate contacts. Is there an application to delete the unwanted ones?
b) None of the accounts have linked with Facebook and I don't want to have to go through and manually link them all. Is there anything out there to do this?
I don't know the name of the method I used but its the one that calls for you to place the file called "PC36IMG.zip" on the root of your sd card and then reboot into the boot loader. I followed the instruction and it seemed to flash ok, but now i'm trying to find out where to find the terminal/CLI so I can delete unwanted stock app like amazon music shop or nascar tv. All the instructions say to open the terminal or CLI and type in a particular path in order to delete the apks that those apps use. The problem is the guides never say where to find the terminal. Is it somewhere on the phone? Is it something I download, do i need to connect the phone to a linux computer to find the terminal?
is there anyway to completely delete things like "gtalk" and "corporate calendar" from the device? SOmethimes when I click on my Running applications, they are being used and I have never once used them. Thanks in advance for the help
Is there a way to delete unwanted scenes from HTC Evo 4G? I created a lot of scenes when I was learning to use them, and I would like to clear up the clutter. How can I delete scenes that I saved that I no longer use?
i use google contacts to sync my personal numbers to my phone but for some reason everytime i email someone from somewhere like craigslist that anonymous address is saved to my contacts? wtf? how do i stop this?
I work 24 hours shifts, and on my calendar I have those shifts set up as all day events. I made them in Outlook, it syncs with Google Calendar. I use Jorte as my calendar app. Every night where I am scheduled to work later that day, at midnight, I get a chime for that all day event. How do I turn this off, but not ALL of the notifications? Just for the all day ones.
I am new to the Android family, I just bought a new HTC Hero. I have three email accounts linked up to my phone, but I cant seem to delete any of my unwanted emails, only the ones from my GMAIL account. Can anyone help me?
Is there a way to delete unwanted apps on a stock phone? I got an update last week and it came with some stupid trial games that I don't want. When I go into app management to remove it, there is no unistall option. I hate how we are forced to keep some apps.
Ok coming from the droid and I always wondered how do I get all the stuff that is pre installed deleted. I have numerous things I want gone. I have noticed on this x that it seems there is so much running. I have stopped it and somehow it seems to want to run again. Those are the things I want gone. I will never get any battery life with all this running all the time. There is a news thingy that runs any way to disable this stuff.
i just got my behold 2 & was so frustrated about not being able to delete all my unwanted emails all at once...what a terrible feature not to have. but i found the solution...just go to market & download the "K9" application & it's done. you can select all emails, then delete AND they don't go to a "junk" folder...they are gone for good. maybe everyone knows about K9 already but i just had to share this wonderful information for anyone encountering this!!
New to Android. I always used a app called Magicall on my WM device. I want to be able to block specific contacts, unknown number or anonymous numbers and also specific contacts for SMS. I can see I have the option to send a contact direct to voicemail but don't have the same facility for unknown/anonymous callers and nothing to block SMS. Any recommendations for an app that works with 2.1? (I'm using a HTC Desire)
I want to link all of my facebook contacts so they show up in my gmail contacts? Otherwise, the contact on my phone from Facebook may be, and in many cases is, missing lots of relevant information. For example, many people don't keep their full address, or their phone number, on Facebook. If this is so, then no phone number or address is stored on my phone for the many friends who got in my contact list via the Facebook Motoblur magic. I can update these manually, via the phone screen-keyboard, but I would like to use the much easier-to-access PC to gmail user interface. But alas, I cannot, as all of these Facebook contacts don't show up on the gmail list at all.
First of all I'd like to point out that I have posted this in the HTC Desire section because I'm not sure whether my problem is Android or HTC Sense related.I have linked my contacts to their facebook profiles so I can see thier pictures awesome.Except that whenever I compose a new text message and click on the people icon, I get a list of every single one of my facebook friends, and multiple entries for each - one for email, phone etc.Except obviously I only want to text one of the people in my contacts, but keep slecting someone's email address that they've listed on facebook, or the wrong person who shares the same first name. This is highly frustrating - random people appearing in my message recipients list is something I have never had to deal with before in my 10 years as a mobile phone user.
I installed a couple of programs not from the market (tweetdeck for example) how do I go about removing them? I know if I had downloaded it from the market I could just go there to uninstall it, but what if the APK was installed from a link? I am rooted btw. Can I just use the folder program to go in and delete the APK?
So I transferred over from the pre and backed up contacts to google. On ym pre, I guess it linked some accounts that were overlapping together (facebook, gmail, regular phone contct, etc.). Is there a way to automatically accept ll the suggested links instead of going into each contact and manually linking them? It is rather annoying and I don't have many contacts (just shy of 200).
I went to add some numbers today and when I go to link to the persons facebook profile, all of the sudden it won't link. It'll say "linked" then I click done (though it lags when I go to click done) and then nothing happens.
I have tried via <a href="market://search?q=pname:com.google.zxing.client.android"</a> but it is not working. I have also checked in Google Android T-mobile G1 but it does not show me link. How can i embed link of android market application link in sms?
I don't know what exactly happened because I wasn't playing around with settings much. But I had all my contacts/people synced with facebook. The picture would show up but their statuses wouldn't update. And now the picture doesn't show up on a contact, it's not linked with Facebook anymore and when I try to link it says I have no friends..?
First question: Why wouldn't my contact's statuses update?
Second question: How do I link my people/contacts to Facebook again?
Using G1, go to http://www.myspace.com. Notice the site is able to detect the user agent from the browser and provides a link to search the MySpace application on the Android Marketplace. Google's http://code.google.com/android/devel/sign-publish.html# publishing provides options to search, e.g. http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:<package>. This does not work for me.
I am new to android/mobile application .I have exp in developing applications using Java/J2EE but no knowledge of mobile application/ games etc. Please suggest me any link/help from where I can study and develop application using android.
I need to statically link the 3.6.2 version of SQLite against my android application due to a bug that affects the dynamic library bundled with Android < 2.2. I've already compiled and installed 3.6.2 on my development machine, but I'm not sure how I go about linking it to my Android app (developing with Eclipse).
I'm not familiar with building and compiling options, so if someone could walk me through step-by-step.
