Android :: Transfer Contacts Into G1 From Old Mobile And Resetting Phone
Dec 6, 2009
When I bought my G1 the guy in the shop used his own gmail account to demonstrate and forgot to reset the phone. I got home transfered all my contacts into the G1 from my old mobile which then died. I only have my contacts on the G1 now and no other back up copy. My problem is that the shopguy's gmail is still the default account and I need to do a factory reset. I am unable to synch my contacts with my own gmail account. I am unable to download apps from the market as I dont know the shopguy's password. I am therefore unable to back up my contacts before I reset the phone.
I have been looking for ways to back up my contacts to my PC so that I can reset the phone and then export them back and synch them with gmail via the G1. It seems impossible to do using the USB cable? It is also not possible to save the contacts to SIM or the memory card? I have looked into using sites like zyb or vodafone 360 for backing up my contacts online but they dont seem to work with the G1?

I am doing a factory reset 2 which deletes everything including the SD card. My question is which information is in the google cloud and what do I need to save and the best way to do that? I basically only want to keep all my contacts and photos.
I retrieve a JSON list of contacts from a social network site. It contains firstname, lastname, displayname, data1, data2, etc...
What is the efficient way to quickly lookup my local phone contacts database and "match" them based on their name. Since there are firstname, lastname and displayname this can vary. What do you think, how can the best match be achieved?
Also how do I make sure I don't parse for each JSON item the whole database I want to avoide having JSON_COUNT x MOBILE COUNT steps
Car phone warehouse kindly transferred my phone numbers from my old sim card to my new Desire phone. I have now noticed that they all say that they are mobile numbers yet this is not the case. What if anything can I do to remedy the situation? Can I remove the 'M' tag from them?
I recently bought an Evo 4g and it is my first android phone. I am trying to import all of my contacts to my gmail account without any success. My calendar has synced up fine but the contacts are not transferring over.
The contacts were transferred to my Evo from my old phone by a Best Buy rep at the time of my purchase if this matters...since I did not manually create them on my Evo.
Is there any way to get all of these contacts transferred over?
I purchased an EVO 3 weeks ago and just purchased a second one for my wife. How do I put my phone contacts onto her phone. EVO to EVO? I Backed up my SD card to my computer but can't tell which item is the phone contacts.
Whenever I use Skype Mobile it seems to reset my Home button (as if I had gone to the application manager and reset to defaults) so I have to keep selecting Helix Launcher every single time after using Skype.
Obviously I check the "Use by default for this action" box each time.
Only Skype Mobile seems to do this. I have also tried powering off and back on.
I just pre-ordered the EVO yesterday. Since this is at Radio Shack, I am assuming that they won't be able to transfer the contacts from me pre to the EVO. Is this correct? I decided to go ahead and fix all my contacts on gmail anyway just in case. This gives me something to do while waiting for my EVO.... Will the Evo import all my contacts when I log into my gmail account and set it as my main sync account? What I am doing is this: 1. I installed the 'contacts to email' patch using preware and exported all my contacts as a vcard file. This is probably a good idea anyway. I don't completely trust "cloud" storage. 2. I sent myself the email and then imported this vcard file into gmail contacts. This resulted in about 350 contacts in gmail. I'm now working through them doing edits and combining duplicates. Is this the best way to prepare my contacts for the EVO?
I used to have tmobile with a walmart bought nokia 7900 hundred or something, so as you can imagine the droid is quite an upgrade for me. Anyway is there some sort of way I can transfer my contacts short of going through all 300+ number individually?
But can I log into my Google account, and start creating my contacts? That way, when I get Evo and sync with Google, I should be able to transfer all my contacts, correct? (names, phone no., email, etc.) I am an Android newb, so someone please advise. I'm pretty excited and would like to manually start punching in my contacts to Google from my current WinMo (ugh) phone.
Basically topic. I know the simplest way to do it would have been to Google Sync my contacts into my Gmail from my BB then sync them to the EVO, but unfortunately, I can't do that now. The SIM in my BB is out thanks to my number transfer so no data, and I didn't have Google Sync installed.
I have a little over 200 contacts in my BB, and as I'm sure you understand putting all of them in manually is near insanity. Anyone in the same boat as me? Any solutions to this or is a long night of manual contact switching in my future?
I spent a considerable time and effort attaching photos to all my 100+ contacts. These photos were crops from larger photos so, stupidly in hindsight, I did not preserve any of them. I would like to copy all my contacts, complete with photos, to another phone. Copying the simple contact info is easy via the Gmail export/import procedure, but that does not copy the attached photos. Is there a simple way of copying contacts complete with photos?
I have a Nokia dumbphone I been using for the longest time from T-Mobile but I made the switch to get on big red and use the droid. So far so good. Any ideas how to transfer the contacts from a GSM phone onto the droid?
Can anyone tell me how to go about transferring my contacts from Ovi on my PC to my new phone Xperia X10i. I have currently downloaded my contacts and everything else on to an old Nokia phone and am sending each contact individually via bluetooth.
I need to go to the Verizon store to have them transfer contacts from my old work phone to my Droid. Is it going to write over the numbers I already have in my phone? My second question is my Droid is rooted with BB 0.4, is that going to be an issue when I go into the Verizon store? I'm not sure they would notice its rooted since they shouldn't go into any settings but maybe someone else knows more.
I have a Droid Eris. I have sent my contacts from my phone to my gmail account before. After the Android update I can not send the contacts from my phone to my gmail account. How can I send my phone contacts to my gmail account?
