I recently purchased my first droid. when loading social network i noticed it copied all 300+ friends to my phone contacts. I don't call everyone of my friends how do i remove my facebook contact phone number from my phone contact list?
I first exported my contacts from Outlook to my gmail in order to add them to my Eris. Later I used the HTC sync to import my calendar but the contacts went with it. Is there any way to remove all of these 'phone' type contacts and keep them from being synced again?
I just installed Android Sync on my desktop PC in hopes of syncing all my Verizon Outlook email contacts into my new Droid. I ran th eprogram and now I have duplicate contacts in Droid. how to remove duplicate contacts in Droid Razr Maxx?
So i just got the phone today and i love it, but my facebook friends got added to my contacts and I'd rather not have them there. Is there a way to remove them other than manually deleting them one by one?
I got my DroidX on 7/15 and on 7/16 linked all my phone contacts who have facebook to a facebook contact via social networking. I kike how the phone sets the picture, I like that in the contact entry it shows me thier status on facebook. What I don't like is that when I open up a contac that is both a phone contact and a facebook contact and I tap the facebook icon on the contact screen I get 3 options (view profile, write on wall, and poke). If I open up a contact that is only facebook and tap that same Icon I get 4 options (view profile, message, write on wall, and poke). Is there some reason linking the facebook contact to a phone contact needs to remove that option? I'd like to be able to send a facebook message from the phone to any contact as easy as I can send a text message.
Just wondering if there is an app or a procedure to get your facebook contacts to automatically sync with your phones contacts as well as your google contacts. For instance if you add someone as a friend on facebook and they have their email and phone number filled out in their profile, that information would automatically be added to your phone. Is there a way to do that?
When my girlfriend got her Eris about 4-5 months ago Verizon was kind enough to copy her contacts from her Razor phone to her new Eris. However she now needs to return the phone for service (silent call bug) and she went to G mail to ensure all her contacts was backed up... they are not. It seems the contacts are stored on her phone (Eris) and not in g mail. How can we import all of her contacts from the phone memory into G mail?
I did my update manually earlier today without any problems (all of my contacts were Google).I have a question for my sister's though:How do you convert all of your Phone contacts to Google contacts? I don't want to do the .csv backup and all that just sync all Phone and Google contacts to Google. The reason is because when Verizon transfers your numbers, they get saved as Phone contacts but from what I understand,the update only re-syncs your Google contacts.So is there a quick/easy way to do this?She is not very tech-savvy.I just want to make sure she does this before she upgrades,so she doesn't lose all of her phone numbers.
I have contacts on my Droid with phone numbers that the same contact in Gmail do not have. Some history:
I have a Droid 3. My Accounts include my main Gmail acct, a gmail acct I hardly ever use (no contacts issues there), a pop3 account and a Touchdown-Exchange account which I dont need because Im not connected to that Exchange server any longer. Some time ago, since I wasnt on the Exchange server any more, I deleted the Touchdown account. Then I realized some or most of my Google contacts had disappeared from the phone. Thinking that this would delete the same contacts from the Gmail servers when it synced, I immediately restored the Touchdown account, restoring the lost contacts to the phone. Are these 2 issues related?
I recently rooted my phone and have been playing around with ROMS and such and clearly needed to back all of my information up. I used the nandroid backup and titanium backup for my apps and then i realized i had no contacts.
So i found mybackup pro and it works great! i actually use this instead of titanium backup now. my only problem is that when it backed up my contacts, i only had like 400+ contacts and now i had 1500
i was able to filter out the extra 1000 by viewing only people with phone numbers, i guess it added all of my fb friends to my contact list. How can i get rid of all of these extra people?
its not just the fb contacts that were added, but there seems to many duplicates which are just linked together. when i go to edit a contact, it asks me which contact to edit, and it lists like 3 or 4 of the same contact name and they all say google underneath.
I would like to be able to automatically remove spam callers from my call log and not be notified they called. I've set up a contact that goes directly to voice-mail. I'm using google voice, so I can set the contact as spam, so it will put any voice-mails in the inbox. That took care of the ringing and interuption, but I'd still like a little more opaqueness.
Is there an app that can remove a caller from the log, or at least clear the notification? I've checked out the various call blocker apps, but thus far, I haven't been able to confirm if any can clear the notification. They mainly seem to answer and hang up.
I have checked my contact and have no duplicates, although I did find some with linked contacts which I have since deleted. However every time I open up the SMS app and try and search for a contact it display each contact about 5 or 6 times. I have checked the people app and I am certian that there no duplicates. I don't use facebook so no contacts there and I dont sync gmail contacts. remove these duplicate entries
Is there a way where you can remove all your contacts at once? I have them all on Google and want to go ahead and remove all the contacts from my sim card and phone. Then sync my phone with google so they are all current.
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?
I was using a silicon case until recently, i removed the case and the lower back end of the phone where the speaker and mic is that was an opening on the case. well, i thought that the ring around those 2 things was just dust build up but now i can't seem to remove the ring that it formed. wondering what i could use without hurting the paint. i wish i could show pictures, but i don't have any. the case was this: where the bottom part of is opened.
Within my 'people' app I have selected the option to only show phone contacts and it does as it should. However, when I go to the dialer page the phone shows both phone contacts and SIM contacts resulting in multiple duplicate contacts from where I copied from SIM to Phone when I first got the handset. Does anyone know how I can do the same as the 'people' app and get the dialer to only show phone contacts?
Is there a way to remove the soft Phone button from the bottom of the screen so you can only press the physical Phone button to bring up the phone. I find it's way to easy to accidentally hit the soft Phone button when trying to press the Menu and back buttons.
I have an Otter box Commuter for my Eris, and I love it. My one question is about the screen protector. Recently my trackball failed, and Verizon is sending me a replacement Eris. How can I take the screen protector off, and not damage it for use on the new one? Is this possible?
