Android :: Retrieve Contact Photo Type

Aug 30, 2010

Is there any way to retrieve the data type of a contact's photo? (e.g. "image/png" or "image/jpeg"). Using the Contacts Provider I can read the photo byte array only. In this case can we get the image type from the image stream?

Android :: Gmail Address Book On Web Contains Field For Birthdays - Why Not In Address Book

Sep 10, 2009

The Gmail address book on the Web contains a field for birthdays, so why not the Android address book? While I'm sure the app could undergo a lot of changes (and everyone would have different ideas) something as basic as a birthday seems obvious.

Android : Identify A Contact Item In Droid Address Book?

Nov 1, 2010

How to identify a contact item in Android address book ?

I am developing an application to add, delete and update contacts on Android PDAs, I can't think up a good way to identify a contact item in the Contact(address book) taking the following issues into consideration:
1. different people can have the same name.
2. Though a record can be identified by its _ID (eg: Phones._ID), serveral rows may belong to one specific person.
I am going to teat all the information(name, display name, phone number .....) of one person as a whole. Do you have a good way to identify them ? Or, How could I find the connection among the properties of the same person?

Android :: Retrieve Contact Name From Phone Number

Jun 20, 2010

I would like to retrieve the name of a contact associated with an incoming telephone number. As I process the incoming number in the broascastreceiver having a String with the name of the incoming caller would help my project greatly. I would think this involves a query using the sql WHERE clause as a filter, but do I need to sort the contacts? An example or hint would be of great assistance.

Android :: Retrieve Contact Phone Number From URI

Jul 30, 2010

I am trying to get the contact's phone number after I have retrieved their ID number from the built-in activity. However, whenever I query the database using the cursor in my code below -- I get zero rows returned even though there is a mobile number for the contact I have selected. Can anyone point me in a better direction or show an example of how to get the contact's phone number AFTER getting their userID?

My code:

private Runnable getSMSRunnable() {
return new Runnable() {
public void run() {
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,
startActivityForResult(i, CONTACTS_REQUEST_CODE);......................

HTC EVO 4G :: Address Book Is Force-closing On Every Time I Try To Create A New Contact?

Sep 24, 2010

I recently loaded Baked Snack 1.7 on my phone as my first custom ROM - before that I had rooted stock Froyo. I tried two Baked Snack kernels and now have KingsxKlick bfs #9.

So I have all these variables and now I have a weird problem - my address book is force-closing on me every time I try to create a new contact. I haven't created a new contact in awhile, so I have no idea whether this could be related to my new ROM or kernel, or if it's a problem with the address book itself. I have had no other problems since installing the ROM and kernel.

I can input the new number for the contact, but when I try to name the contact it says it has encountered an error and needs to stop. This is the stock HTC People app, and I have tried it creating the contact as a regular phone contact and as a Google contact. No dice.

I've also tried a battery pull, clearing cache, the basics.

Any thoughts, guys? I met a cute boy and I REALLY need to save his number.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: No Address Book Search By Contact Names

Nov 12, 2010

Address Book Issue:
Suddenly after having it worked smooth for 3-4 days, I started getting a very strange problem which I was not able to search anywhere in forums or in the help manual.My address book search is not searching any contacts by the contact's names. It is just searching the emails, it's a huge problem for me especially when trying to send SMS to anyone, I can't go and add recipient by searching, I need to scroll the whole way down to that contact, which is irritating.

Otherwise the phone is quite nice and I am liking it very much. Especially the slide out keyboard is really usable plus unlike most smartphones, it's really small in size and performs most functions. There are some minor flaws but most of them are going to get fixed with the SE's much awaited software update for bringing in the Android 2.1, no doubt I am also waiting desperately.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Add Second Number / Email Address To A Contact

I have had the SGS for a few days.
It must be possible to add more than one number to a contact, but I can't find it.
I thought that Samsung would have a better manual on the net, but I can't find that either.
Any ideas?

General :: Correct Address Format In Address Book And GPS

Jan 23, 2013

I like to add addresses to my phone book in Android. As a lot of my contacts live in buildings i also like to add the floor and apartment number to the address: Looking like that:

Street and Number, Floor and Department number
Town, zip code


Av. Whatever 12345, Floor 5-A
Buenos Aires 1007

When clicking on the address the GPS of my wish opens , finds the country, city but not the street because of the additional Floor and department information. Without this additional information everything well with Google Maps or Sygic.

So, how should i add this additional Floor and department information to my address without the GPS has problems to find the main location.Also from ICS on there is only one filed to add the whole address not as with Gingerbread where you had a field for street, city, etc.

HTC Desire :: Address Book Only Gives One Line Of Address

May 30, 2010

Just getting used to my HTC Desire, after reading your forum I was comforted regarding battery life and it seems much better now than the first few days.
I see another post on this but no answer, the address book only gives one line of the address is then any way round this? Even my first pda a Psion 3 had the option of which fields to display etc. there seems very little option to format what is seen, not that I am unhappy about the rest but to have to edit to see all the address is barmy.
Another thing way back then that still is not found is search all fields of the contacts, i.e. to find a number of someone that rang on another phone.

HTC Hero :: How To Use An Android Address Book?

Jan 27, 2010

Could someone please explain to me how to use the address book? I'm so irritated with how user unfriendly the address book... and every contact I've ever contacted is, that I'm nearly ready to jump ship. Usually I go to the dialer, and just type in a name. For instance, when people ask me my work cell number, I have to look it up. Normally, I'll go to the dialer, type in the first three letters of my name, then select the icon on the right to go to my entry. Easy. But when I'm on a call, and someone asks for my number, I go to "people" (or what seems to be the address book) and I type the first three letters of my name and every entry for James Kever shows up as James Kever. So my work number, my email address, my home number... every entry for me shows up... but ONLY shows up as James Kever. I have no idea which of the four entries is my work number. It's the same when I search for other people. I have 6 entries for my brother... all of them say Chris Kever.

Android :: Is There A App - Widget For A Full Address Book

Jul 27, 2010

New to the sight and the android world. I have been using the iphone for several years and I upgraded to the iphone 4 and took it back after 30 days. It kept dropping calls and I got discussed with Apple and their BS fix.
I picked up the Samsung Captivate and I'm still getting used to the new phone.
I will say that I have NOT Dropped a call

I like that I can customize the phone ++ but I've been reading about the Launcher Pro is it worth getting with the Captivate?

My main question is the contacts is only for phone numbers, is there a app /widget for a full address book? I need one with Name, number, address, email
I'm hoping that this Captivate works out for me..

Android :: Sync Address Book With Toyota Tacoma?

Jul 30, 2010

I am wondering if anyone has gotten their Motorola Android to share the phone address book with the JBL audio on a Toyota Tacoma.They pair up just fine.I go to the "phone book" nothing there.I go to add an entry "From Phone" it says "please start the transfer from the phone" which I dont see an option for.Someone suggested going to the Networks | Bluetooth then holding down the Car entry, and disabling then enabling the "Phone" entry Tried this, and it doesnt pair and doesnt work.Someone else suggested on the Droid, to export all contacts to a VCF file.Then get the Bluetooth file transfer, and when the car asks to transfer, enable the file transfer.The phone finds the car and starts the transfer but I guess the file format is not good as the car says "Failed".

HTC Droid Eris :: Android Sync With Mac (10.4.11) Via Address Book

Jan 6, 2010

Just got the HTC Eris and transfered my contacts from my old BlackBerry to the new Eris. Everything's there, actually way more than I need (over 3970 contacts, many duplicates and such. I realize that there is the 'delete duplicates' function on Gmail's contacts page, but sync'ing of that many contacts to go back and edit the contacts that I would like to keep on the phone, has really slowed down the phone, eaten battery big-time and in 3-4 days only 501 contacts have come across. I really don't need that many and was only planning on having the people I call on a daily basis. So, I turned off the sync function on the phone and the phone is running a bit better, but having to scroll or search through that many contacts takes for ever to do.

I would like to find a sync conduit (that works with my PowerBook Mac running Tiger 10.4.11) that I could sync via USB my contacts off of this phone, edit the ones to keep, re-populate (replace) the contacts. At this point I would just turn on the phone sync function(with the fewer contacts) and let them populate Gmail. How is this possible? Many of the suggested downloads I have seen online haven't really stated that they work with my Mac OS. Is there a faster way to have the contacts sync'd up to gmail and maybe just edit everything up there on line?

When I open my address book and edit a contact and select facebook to link the contact. It updates and uses the picture from facebook. This is a very neat option, my question is when I link a profile from facebook to a contact does this decrease battery life, or can I change some setting so facebook wont update but maybe once a day?

Android :: Retrieve Photo From Chooser - Save To Directory

Sep 14, 2009

I'm writing an application where images are read from the filesystem based on a certain naming scheme and file structure. To add images to the application, I need to be able to add to this file structure. I need to be able to select from existing images and copy the image to its new location.

I've set up a chooser, as follows: i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT, null); i.setType("image/jpg"); startActivityForResult(Intent.createChooser(i, "Select photo"), PICK_FROM_FILE);

When I get the result using this line: URI uri = URI.create(outputIntent.getData().toString());

the value of uri looks like this: content://media/external/images/media/2

How do I transform this into a jpg file?
