Android :: Spam Message Send To Everyone On Google Voice Contact List

Nov 28, 2010

On my new Android phone I setup my Google Voice number and set it as my primary number to use on the phone. I have had the phone for 3 days and have had my Google Voice acct for over a year with never an issue with it. This morning, the only change I made to my Android phone was adding
an app from the app store called "Facebook Touch". About 2 hours later, I learned that every contact on my Google Voice contact list, which I did a sync with on my phone, got SPAM
with the same SPAM - It was texted out to everyone, here was the message -

Dear, I have tried to purchase some products from a business company, I have attracted by high quality products, low price and enthusiastic services, I think if you are free, you can go to see: styleele.com, picking your interesting <<followed by a link here>>
I can't imagine that it could not have come from the phone. Maybe from that Facebook Touch app as that application had a lot of SPAM just within the application itself (its not deleted).

Android :: Google Voice - Text People Or Send Them A Message On Facebook

Apr 25, 2010

I've been using Google Voice on my Env Touch for about a year now but only mainly for the sms transcriptions as the Env Touch doesn't have an app for it.

So, here's my main problem. All of my contacts are just in my phone. I don't have anyone's email address as all I do mainly is txt people or send them a message on facebook. I'm wanting to add all of my contacts to my gmail account so when I get my Incredible everything will be there. Right now my sms from GV just has the number and I actually don't know any of my friends numbers, they're just in my phone. *yes, technology can be a sort of burden at times* So I don't have a clue who the voicemail is from until I call into it. Is there any easy way of porting all these contacts from either my phone, backup assistant, or facebook? Also, do android phones take your contacts and your facebook and merge them into your gmail account?

Android :: Google Voice Spam

May 18, 2010

Here's the deal:I am new Voice user, just got in last weekend with the Google Voice for Students thing. I set up a GV number for safekeeping but I'm not using it for calls or SMS. Voice is only set up on my Incredible to handle voicemail. So, tonight, I got a notification on my phone. Upon looking, I see that there's a message in Voice despite having not received any call. It's from an unknown number and obviously a spam message.

Two questions:

1.) How did this message get to me? i.e. did someone text my GV number or what?

2.) Is spam going to be a big problem with Google Voice? If so, I'm afraid I will very quickly switch back to my carrier's service.

HTC Droid Eris :: Voice And Picture Messaging - Record Simple Voice Message And Send It Via MMS

Apr 29, 2010

Today i tried to do something that i used to do back in my Alias 2 days (regular cellphone), but couldn't.

Can i record a simple voice message and send it via MMS? It was pretty simple to do with a cell phone...
I saw that the eris comes with a voice recorder, but i recorded a message and was not able to send it.
Any ideas?

Also, when sending pictures via MMS, it always resizes them and obviously the person receiving doesn't get the same quality. I realize that sending via Gmail doesn't resize, but i send to other cell phones a lot.
I'm thinking the only fix is lowering the camera resolution? I think that lowering the resolution is still better than having it resized for the message. Has anyone tried lowering the resolution to a point that the picture does not need to be resized for MMS?

Same thing for Video messages.. can't even send them. Not sure if it's HAndcent, or the file is just to big

Samsung Captivate :: Message Contact List Shows Each Contact Twice

Sep 24, 2010

In my contacts list when I press the contacts button, I see each contact once. I have it set to only show contacts from my phone. When I go to send a text message and press contacts, my contacts are there multiple times, but I can't see any differences because they are named the same. For example, my son Adam shows up twice in the contact list in text messaging, but only once when I press contacts from my home page.

Mar 15, 2010

I wonder if the following, using Handcent SMS and Any Cut, is possible.I want to make a shortcut that launches the audio-recorder that records the sound I want to send as an MMS. The reason for this is because this is a much safer solution than typing an SMS when driving.

Android :: Google Voice App Message Grouping

Jun 24, 2010

Google voice is great so far, but there are two things i hate about it.

1. it doesnt group text from one person all together and i get multiple text group for a single person. is there an app or method to group text from one person all together?

2. every time i get a notification of google voice sms, i click the sms and it goes back to the original text opened awhile ago. i then have to click back, then goto the inbox toread the new text rather than reading the new text right away when i click on the notification. is there a way around this?

Android :: List Contact Type SIM Phone / Google

Dec 14, 2009

I'm aiming to develop an application on Android 1.5 that is required at one point to list all contacts and display the type of contact ie SIM, Phone or Google. I can easily list all the contacts by using Cursor curAllContacts = getContentResolver().query(People.CONTENT_URI, null, null, null, null); And looping through the cursor and I can use code like the sample below to get fields of data.My question is, is there any field in the people table or a related table that holds a value to define where the contact came from (SIM, Phone or Google)?

General :: How To Send Text Using Google Voice Number

Dec 5, 2012

I had my number ported to Google Voice and have been using it to make and receive calls for the past two weeks. I was also using it for texts, or so I thought, but yesterday I found out (by looking at my friends phone), that after I sent him a text, my carrier's number was the one that showed up as the sender, instead of my Google Voice.

I thought Google Voice automatically used your Google Voice number for texts too? Am I doing something wrong in the middle?

General :: Contact List Being Flooded With Google+ Contacts

Jan 21, 2012

My Contacts are taking up >30MB. When I view my contacts I see the people I expect to see (a couple hundred at most). But when I go to add a contact from the Call Log and I specify "add to existing contact" I get a massive list that appears to be everyone from my Google circles (probably a few thousand).

I tried clearing all data from the Google+ app, then doing same with my contacts in hopes it would rebuild without the Google+ contacts, but they are still there...and the space used is still >30MB.

How Android populates the Contacts database, and how I can limit it to JUST my actual contacts?

Motorola Droid :: Google Voice And Contact Group Sync

Is anyone else noticing that the three "built-in" groups in Google Voice: Friends, Family and Coworkers are NOT synced? These are my three biggest groups. I'm sure I could create duplicate groups, but that seems silly. Can anyone confirm the same behavior and/or suggest something to get these groups syncing properly?

General :: Google Voice - Multiple Threads For Same Contact Created

Jul 21, 2012

I recently returned to android. I was hoping this issue with google voice had been worked out, especially as I am about to do a full convert/port to google voice.

So the same contact will text me but often times google voice will create multiple threads making it very annoying to sift through them on the Voice SMS Inbox. It does this also on my browser window. Its not 100% of the time, but almost seems like if its a text on another day, another thread is made. Is there a way to fix this or merge the threads under the same contact?

HTC Incredible :: Google Voice - Voicemail - Doesnt Pick Up - But Says I Have A Message

Aug 24, 2010

Google voice has been sort of flaky for me since I started using it.

I use my old number, and I only use google voice for voicemail, I have it set up on my phone and in google voice.

Sometimes if I decline a call they will get a verizon error message. And today out of boredom I called my cell phone from my work phone and it just rang...and rang...and rang....and rang...and voicemail never picked up. But then I got a notification from google voice that I had an 18 second long message which was completely silent. I did it again, same result.

I logged into google.com/voice and confirmed that my greeting is set up.

It's sad, because I love google voice. But if voicemail doesn't work then it has no value...I can't have people calling me hearing error messages or never getting to leave a message.
