General :: Assign Contact To Phone Number

Nov 23, 2012

In Android I can assign a preferred phone number for a contact.I would like to set a preferred contact for a phone number. If I get called and the number was added to multiple contacts (which is correct for my case), I would like to set another contact as the preferred contact when the number calls again.

Android :: Getting Contact Name From Phone Number?

Dec 4, 2009

The semi-standard way of getting a contact name from a phone number is to use Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL and append the phone number, as in the following sample code. This works fine on Android 1.6, but not on 2.0 -- is there a way to perform this function that works in all versions of the Android API? private String getContactNameFromNumber(String number) {// define the columns I want the query to return String[] projection = new String[] { Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME, // encode the phone number and build the filter URI Uri contact Uri = Uri.withAppendedPath (Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL, Uri.encode(number)); // query timeCursor c = getContentResolver().query(contact Uri, projection, null,null, null);// if the query returns 1 or more results}

Android :: Looking Up Contact By Phone Number

Jul 29, 2010

I am getting contact details for a given phone number using the following code:

Uri uri = Uri.withAppendedPath(PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI, Uri.encode(phoneNum));
Cursor cursor = context.getContentResolver().query(uri,null,null,null,null);

There is a case though when the cursor contains 3 records with the same phone number and display name. Can you please suggest an explanation or possible reason for that?

Android :: Contact From Phone Number - Old Vs New URI?

Aug 5, 2010

I have an Android 2.1 device (HTC Incredible). My app, however, must be compatible with early (pre SDK 5) devices, so I am using the deprecated format of filter URI:

Uri contactUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL, Uri.encode(number));
Cursor C = context.getContentResolver().query(contactUri , null, null, null, null));


The number is of the form 15555551212. This fails to find the Contact, at least on my device. However, changing to the new (SDK 5 and later) ContactsContract format URI

Uri contactUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(ContactsContract.PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI, Uri.encode(number));
Cursor C = context.getContentResolver().query(contactUri , null, null, null, null));

results in success. Originally, the corresponding number in the Contact was in the format +1 555 555 5555, but I changed it to exactly match the input number 15555555555 and the old format URI still fails. In both cases, the new format URI succeeds. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why this is the case?

Android :: Lookup Corresponding Contact To A Phone Number?

Jul 6, 2009

What I'm trying to do, is to get the corresponding contact to a phone number. It works perfect if the number is stored in the contacts in the following format: +<country code><area code><number> But not all numbers are stored this way. Most are without the country code or with "00" instead of "+". Do I have to parse the number by myself and set up a corresponding WHERE clause for the query, or is there anything I can't find in the internet to get this one done by the framework?

Android :: Search Contact By Phone Number

Sep 14, 2010

In my app, user writes a phone number, and I want to find the contact name with that phone number? I usually search the contacts like this:Cursor cur = getContentResolver().query (ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI, null, null, null, null); But I do this to access all contacts. In this app I only want to get the contact name of the given phone number. How can I restrict the query? Or do I have to go trough all contacts and see if any has the given phone number? But I believe that this can be very slow this way.

HTC Desire :: Add Phone Number To Facebook Contact?

Jun 12, 2010

I just got my Desire a few days ago, and so far i am very pleased with it (coming from a Nokia N95 8GB). I do find the contact handling somewhat counter intuitive however. For example , i have some contacts from facebook for which i have no other contacts created, but i need to add additional information (in particular phone numbers). I do not seem to be able to add information to a facebook contact. Do i really need to manually create another contact, then manually give it the same name and then link it to the facebook profile in order to have a place to add the phone number?

Android :: Phone Number Contact Format

Apr 25, 2010

In Android I can get phone numbers of all the contacts without any problem. Tha problem is that for most users some numbers are stored as 'local' numbers, meaning that they dont have the country code included. For example, if the user lives in US and he has 2 contacts:

1) John - 555-123-1234 (local) (starting 1 not showing)

2) Jane - 44-123456787 (england phone number)

The question is: How do I get all the numbers in an international format, when some of the numbers doesnt include the country code?

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.

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.

Samsung Captivate :: Want To Assign A Ringtone To Contact?

Perhaps I'm a moron today (don't answer that). But I've been trying to assign an individual ringtone to my wife's number (she doesn't care for "Secret Prayer" by Joe Satriani, suggested something by ABBA, and is lucky she isn't getting "Scolding Wife" by Great Big Sea) but I haven't had any luck. Is this a Captivate thing? The other android phones seem to be easy enough.

Android :: Lookup Contact Name Of Existing Phone Number

Nov 14, 2010

I'm using a Android Wildfire and I used the following code to lookup the contact name of an existing phone number.

private String getContactNameFromNumber(String number) { String[] projection = new String[] { Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME, Contacts.Phones.NUMBER };
Uri contactUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL, Uri.encode(number));
Log.d(TAG, contactUri.toString());
// query time
Cursor c = context.getContentResolver().query(contactUri, projection, null, null, null);
// if the query returns 1 or more results
// return the first result
if (c.moveToFirst()) {
String name = c.getString(c.getColumnIndex(Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME));
Log.d(TAG, name);
return name;
}

// return null if no match was found return null;
}

I am unable to resolve the contact name. The logcat output shows the following
11-14 13:45:35.879: DEBUG/Test(3342): content://contacts/phones/filter/%2B919773653345

Android :: Unable To Update Contact Phone Number

Feb 23, 2009

I am currently unable to update an existing contact record's phone number. I am able to insert a new phone number to an existing contact record but unable to delete or modify existing phone number records of a contact. Is there a way to either: - delete an existing phone number from a contact record. or - update an existing phone number of a contact record.

The sample code is as shown below:
To delete existing phone numbers of a contact record: row = getContentResolver().delete(ContentUris.withAppendedId (Phones.CONTENT_URI, uid),null,null);
Log.v(TAG,"row =" + row);

The row value is always 0 even if phone numbers are present. Thus, the deletion does not take place. To update a phone number:
Uri PersonUri = ContentUris.withAppendedId(People.CONTENT_URI, uid);
Uri PhoneUri = Uri.withAppendedPath (PersonUri,People.Phones.CONTENT_DIRECTORY);
ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put(Phones.NUMBER,"1234567890");
values.put(Phones.TYPE,1);
row = getContentResolver().update(PhoneUri,values, null, null);

This throws a unsupported Operation exception.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Add Received Phone Number To Contact?

Mar 31, 2010

I am trying to take a phone number from my call log and edit it to be added to a contact without typing it by hand. On my Sprint Katana, when you clicked on the phone number in the call log, you had the choice to edit or append the number. On my Hero, when I press on the phone number, it calls it? Am I missing a step, or not holding the press long enough? I have searched and read as many as come up under a search, but I can't find any that address it from the call log issue.

HTC Droid Eris :: Contact Phone Number Format

Jun 6, 2010

It is my first smartphone. I put in all my contacts manually so that I could get the feel of the phone and learn the basics. On all my previous stupid phones, the contact phone number automatically formated to 901-555-1212. With the Eris it is 9015551212. Anyway to change this? I have searched other threads with the same question but no one ever replies. I have search the net with no luck. Should I just take it that there is no way to automatically change this. I have gone through and put in the extra ticks between the numbers manually but that is a pain in the arse.
