Android :: Doesn't Sync Contacts To The Cloud?

Sep 23, 2010

Is this just the nature of Android, that contacts have to be sync'ed back to some Internet server? Or even that you must have an email address to even use the damn thing?

I have a Motorola Backflip. Android seems cool because of the customization capabilities, but I don't know where my data is. Is there any Android phone that keeps contacts local & doesn't "phone home"?

Of the 2GB dataplan that AT&T automatically added once I plugged my SIM card in, I've only racked up 50MB of data for the whole billing period (which ends in a couple days). I like Android but don't need 3G or Internet.

General :: Numbers Entered Into Contacts On LG L9 Doesn't Sync To Gmail Contacts Online

May 7, 2013

I've checked my phone's sync settings, synced several times, logged in and out of Gmail online to see if anything has been updated. No such luck. Icon by phone numbers saved on phone is a cell phone, rather than the letter "G" which typically represents contacts pulled from Gmail online. I've had this issue - I believe - with my previous Samsung. Although I've seen this question brought up before, the answers are typically not device specific or have not been useful and clear to follow.

As a new user, I had difficulty negotiating this site and finding the best place to post this. There is not an LG Optimus L9 Forum so, if there is a location where this post might encourage more visibility.

General :: Contacts Sync Doesn't Save Number

Dec 7, 2012

What exactly does joining contacts do?I have joined all my duplicates and contacts from different lists together so there's only one entry per person.If I go on them, they're all listed under my Google Account under my email address. however some of them I merged on my phone aren't merged on gmail contacts.

And I see all the names now of my list, but the numbers aren't saved.. just their name, sometimes their email address..I'm currently on an old T-Mobile G2 but getting N4 soon..

HTC Desire :: Doesn't Sync Birthdays Contacts Details With Calendar

Oct 11, 2010

i am using HTC desire(Android) and i am pretty much happy with the performance. The issue i wanna discuss here is that my phone does not sync the birthdays from my phone contact details to the calender, as it was availabe in my previous phone HTC Touch diamond, i used to feed the birthday details along with the contact and it syncs those birthdays with the calender when i used to sync it manually with the help of computer. But no such option is availabe in Android. please don't reply with the 'synching birthday contact and events' from google calender. I've seen loads of forums on that , but that ain't related to my problem. i want synchronization of my phone contact's birthday details to the phone calender.

General :: Why Doesn't Google Sync Remember Joined Contacts

Jun 25, 2012

Seriously..this is my biggest gripe with Google. No matter how much time and effort I put into going through all my contacts and joining them and linking them to Facebook, it's all for naught because if I ever I have restore them from Google sync, they will all be unjoined and unorganized. Why doesn't Google remember which contacts I join with each other and which ones get linked with which Facebook profile?

I also back my contacts to my SD via Go Backup. That method remembers which contacts are joined but doesn't backup anything related to Facebook. And if I restore my contacts via that method, Google will still sync and I'll have like 3 of each contact.

I have a droid incredible with aokp - 4.0.4

Android :: Backup/Sync DCIM Folder To Cloud

Nov 11, 2010

Is there any easy (preferably free) way that I can backup/sync my DCIM (pictures) to the "cloud"?

I probably don't need something that does it automatically. I think doing it on-demand when I want to would be fine.

I almost never need to connect my phone to the PC anymore, so I'd really love a way to safely backup the pictures without having to do so.

Android :: Get Calendar And Contacts From Google Cloud

Aug 16, 2010

I have got a new moto milestone and am in the process of migrating from my trusty blackberry 8800. I just need to migrate the contact list from my bb to the moto. Is google sync enought for it? I have synced all my calendar and contacts to the google cloud. Will android pull up everything when i put my sim and activate it? The usual method of exporting everything to outlook seems so cumbersome.

Samsung I7500 :: Contacts Not Syncing From Android To Cloud

Jul 11, 2010

I can't seem to sync some contacts that i've added on my galaxy to google contacts. i count at least 3 off the top of my head that i've added some time ago - one with only a name + number, one with those + pic, one with those + email. i just logged in to gmail on a computer and was about to send a mail to the last one mentioned, but couldn't find the contact. i tried to sync manually from the phone (by disabling/enabling contacts auto sync), and it did sync and changed the timestamp for "last synced", but none of those contacts appeared in my google contacts.

General :: Sync Folder To Cloud Storage

Dec 20, 2013

I'm basically looking for an app, that can provide syncronisation between a folder on my device, and a folder on <insert cloud storage here>. I'm personally trying to migrate away from Dropbox, of which I've been a heavy user for many years. But in the light of the recent NSA gate, I thought I'd take a look what else is out there. I've chosen MEGA, as they provide (on paper) the security I like, and enough storage for my cloud-storage-needs.

I've been using Dropbox to automatically store the images I've taken with my phone camera and I take a backup of my texts every night at 2pm, which is also, automagically, uploaded to Dropbox. The official MEGA app takes care of the first, but the latter is taken care of within the backup app itself. It can be disabled, though.

I've looked for sync apps, but neither those or apps like Helium doesn't support MEGA.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Galaxo 1.6.3 Bugs - Speaker Doesn't Work In Call - Scrolling Contacts By Letter Doesn't Work

May 2, 2010

I have so far found two bugs in Galaxo 1.6.3:

a) Speaker doesn't work in call (very weak). works well in ringtones etc.

b) Scrolling contacts by letter doesn't work.

Other than that this is a leap forward, especially with the overclock options!

Both bugs, as well as others, fixed in 1.6.3.1 update!

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Sync To SE-site Does Not Backup All Contacts And Immature Contacts

Sep 20, 2010

I have two groups of contacts "MyContacts" and "Utilities". When I set up synching I selected to copy "All contacts".

Unfortunatey, when I look what's on my area on sonyericsson.com/wportal I see only the contacts from the group "MyContacts".

I.e. the site creates a false feeling of security - if I need to restore my phone from this site I will irrecovarebly lose lots of data.

I don't know is SE forgot to test their function or Android-hackers don't understand the features of the contacts.

All area of handling the contacts stinks seriously, and mkes you wander if the Android people ever used a mobile phone :

1. X10 does not accept contacts sent via SMS (VCARD-format), (or via MMS or bluetooth)

2. X10 does not sync with Outlook where most of business people have their contacts, and maintain them when receiving corporate mails etc.

3. The only way to get the contacts is to export from PC to a csv-file and import to gmail, and then sync to the phone. This is not that flexible due the export via csv. I.e. If I create cntacts in the phone they will not reach Outlook.

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.

Android : Doesn't Show Up Add Contacts / Where Is It Putting?

Jun 21, 2010

When I add a new contact to my phone it doesn't show up in the contacts list. When I dial the number manually it shows the name of the person I am calling or that I added. Where is it putting my new contacts? Is there a group setting somewhere I missed?

I also noticed that all my numbers that were brought over from my old phone are listed twice when I go to edit a contact. They are only listed once when I look up a contact but under edit there are two screens with the same info.

HTC Hero :: Fed Up With Sync / Just Doesn't Work

Jul 16, 2010

I have the HTC Hero on Orange, got the new version of Sync a few weeks back and I just can't get it working, now, when I want it to. The previous version was just as bad, really. It seems to be a running issue with a lot of users, though.Is there an alternative? Is there a way of converting my Outlook contacts that are on the phone into Google contacts so I don't have to deal with Sync at all? What with this, plus the new Sync not working with my Outlook 2003 when I DID have it working plus the phone recently not notifying me of new voicemail over a 2 week period (which cost me a job interview), I'm seriously considering ditching the phone. Too many things keep going wrong!
