General :: Contacts Disappearing After Reboot On ICS?

Jul 28, 2012

I've got an HTC Desire HD that's been rooted and have tried out several ROMs, the last couple have been ICS. I would like to stay with an ICS ROM but there seems to be an issue with contacts. I sync my contacts (and calendar) with Outlook via MyPhoneExplorer, Google isn't in the running here. On GB all is fine and both contacts and calendar go into a 'phone' memory. With ICS this 'phone' memory has gone and you have to sync with your gmail account locally. With ICS the calendar is fine but if I reboot the phone (it gets switched off most nights) this causes all contacts to disappear. I usually use Contapps as my contacts app but the stock People app also shows the same behaviour. Tried all the settings I can think of, and SEARCHED the forums (and further afield) so far, but still the same.

In all cases I've set up my Google account but then turned off ALL synchronisation, as I want to keep things local to my phone and PC. The calendar works fine, it's just contacts. I've checked with my gmail account online and it does NOT have copies of my contacts or calendar so it would appear that 'not syncing' is not the issue as my phone's calendar keeps it's data intact.

Also, call history doesn't seem to get deleted either but you obviously just get the phone number in each entry, with no contact details.Using the stock People app to check (though other contact apps show the same lack of contacts!). I've tried 3 different ICS ROMs and at least two have shown the problem (the 3rd may have done but that was the first I installed and may not have checked). I've seen other comments both on xda and the wider interweb that indicate that I'm not the first to see this but there doesn't seem to be a consensus on the solution, if any. how Google changed contacts operations in ICS?

Oh, I know that I "could" sync with Google, but I don't want to. I know all the arguments for and against and I'm in the "against" camp on this one so comments along the 'just sync with Google' line aren't that useful. No disrespect to those that think differently ...

General :: Google Contacts Disappearing (and Reappearing After Reboot)?

May 13, 2012

I used to use two Gmail accounts and had both sync the information, with exception to one's contact list since it was empty. However, I've noticed that my contacts, after awhile, disappear from my phone.

At first, they had disappeared from my Google Contacts as well, but a simple restore fixed that and now they are still there (this was around the time Google started to move info to Google+). Now, the contacts disappear from my phone, leaving me with it saying "No contacts", until I reboot my phone again (where it all loads back in again).

I use WhatsApp, ChatOn, Skype, Google+, and Facebook apps.

General :: Favorite Contacts Disappearing When Syncing To Google Contacts?

Oct 16, 2012

My wife's phone - which is a ZTE Blade running 2.2 - is losing it's favorites in the contacts manager each time it syncs to Google Contacts.

I looked up her Google Contacts [URL] and there is no "Starred in Android" group, as it should be. I think it should be automatically created when she fovorites a contac in her phone. But instead, it deletes the starring of the contacts in the phone each time it syncs.

HTC Eris :: Contacts Disappearing After Root

May 8, 2010

I rooted my phone to the latest ROM using the script in the stickied thread. My google contacts re-synced when the phone started, and all was fine. I then proceeded to make a few edits to my contacts. That's when I noticed that they were disappearing from my "people" list. I can still pull them up by typing the name on the dialer screen, and I can still send email to them, but they just don't show up on the list. This also happens with newly-created contacts. I've tried forcing a manual sync, rbooting, editing the contacts through gmail on my computer, and nothing has worked.

HTC Desire :: Disappearing Contacts With Birthdays

May 17, 2010

I spent a fair while setting up my screens and finally got to putting in my contacts last nite. I entered my contacts manually one by one on the phone itself using the add contact on the people menu. This was all fine until i checked my phone this morning. All of the people I added to the contacts whose birthday i also added to there contact details have disappeared. It is only the people who i entered there birthday though, in otherwords all the important people. Have i done something daft (quite possible) or is this a glitch?

HTC Incredible :: Google Disappearing Saved Contacts

Jul 16, 2010

I've saved some contacts (from a text message and the other from a phone call), and linked them to my Google account. They'll stay for a day or two, then the contact will just disappear (not in phone or Gmail online). I've tried re-saving numerous times, same result. Then I decided to just enter them in my contacts in Gmail, and it worked for only one.

HTC Eris :: XTRSense And The Case Of Disappearing Contacts?

Aug 23, 2010

So yesterday I flashed XTRSense4.0.6.1 to both mine and my wife's Eris. My phone has been running great with no problems whatsoever. This afternoon my wife calls me freaking out because her contacts have disappeared... all of them. She said they were all there this morning and all of a sudden they're just gone. I told her to go to Settings, Accounts/Sync, and to Sync Google but that didn't help. She rebooted her phone, synced again and still nothing. Finally I walked her through the process of rebooting into recovery mode, wiping cache, doing a factory reset, and finally a NAND restore which got her back to pre-XTRSense and all her contacts came back without issue. What could have caused this issue and what can I do to prevent future occurrences? I'd really like to flash XTRSense back to her phone because it seemed to fix her other issues but not if its going to cause more problems than it fixes.

General :: S4 - New To Android And Emails Disappearing

Jun 21, 2013

I've just move from the Iphone 4 to the S4 and am trying to set it up. I'm failing miserably with email.

I use Virgin.net email but have it downloaded to Outlook and it is deleted from the server when I do this.
I want to access the same emails on my phone - well, those emails that have not yet been downloaded from the server. So for example, if I'm not at home and laptop is switched off (not accessing Outlook) then I can get the emails to my phone until I get home and download them to laptop. When I download them to my phone I want to leave a copy on the server for Outlook to get.

So............... I've manually set up email using pop3 settings on S4.

An email will download to my inbox on the phone...... but then when I next go in to check emails on phone those that have been downloaded just disappear?

Delete email from server is set as never in the settings. And outlook on my laptop is turned off so emails are not being downloaded there.

Why are my emails auto deleting and where re they going. How do I stop this?

I've transferred a few file by ftp from my machine (running linux debian) to the mobile. Everything seemed ok, except that after a while the file disappeared.

I've ftped to the mobile with nautilus. Do I need to "cleanly" close the ftp connection on nautilus to avoid this issue?

General :: Media Volume Disappearing On S3 And Note 2

Mar 7, 2013

I've found this annoying bug that makes the media volume go to mute and I'm unable to turn it back on unless I restart. It happens if I have headphones in and go a while without listening to music. It doesn't happen every day but the bug does rear its ugly head at least twice a week.

Having same issue with the S3 and Note 2 or any other phones? Both of them are on at&t, not rooted and have the latest OS updates on it.

General :: Exchange 2007 / Activesync / Disappearing Emails?

Jul 5, 2012

Interesting problem that I seem to have had out of the box (and which has started when I traded my old treo in for this android device): emails regularly disappear both from my Note, the exchange server and thus everywhere else as well, without any intervention on my part. My Note notifies me of new email, I glance at the overview, and sometimes no more than a few minutes later, that new email is completely gone.

Another interesting feature that popped up during testing is that emails sent from the device to this very account do appear in the sent items list both on the device and on the exchange server, but *only* at the inbox on the android device. And as with some of the regular incoming emails, these too disappear. As external emails (i.e. sent from for example gmail) thus far seem to stick, I am suspecting an issue with either activesync itself or exchange and activesync, but I can't be sure.

Noticed a few other threads both here and elsewhere about disappearing emails, but most (if not all) of these seem to be about POP3 where part of the default routine is of course deleting from the server. apps at issue:

- Android 2.3.6 and 4.0 (problem stayed after the upgrade)
- Default mail client on both versions (this particular exchange account has thus far proven a bit troublesome to configure with for example k-9 and touchdown)
- Exchange Server 2007 server / activesync

General :: Droid RAZR MAXX Background And Notification Bar Disappearing

Jun 17, 2013

my Droid RAZR MAXX (4.1.2, not rooted) .So basically, whenever I have a notification in the notification bar (be it from the SMS app, WhatsApp, etc.) and I go to slide it down, the bar at the top disappears and then the background (the apps and widgets remain in place) goes to black for a few seconds then returns to the normal background repeatedly for several minutes. This keeps happening until finally the notification bar returns and the background returns to normal. While all of this happens, I cannot open any app. Upon selecting an app, it simply crashes right away. Doesn't matter which app it is. They all crash.

I should note that the exact same thing happens when I long-press the home button to bring up the running apps.

There have only been a few occasions where everything worked properly in the past few days. That is, I long-pressed the home button or dragged down the notification bar without any issues. I am not eligibile for a new phone upgrade until March 2014 so I am kind of stuck with this phone for now.

General :: CM Causes Reboot Loop

May 7, 2014

I installed CM using CWM onto my HTC Deluxe. I tried 4 different nightlies and the 10.2 stable and after installing any of them, I get this... it reboots into the white htc screen with a quick vibrate. Then it goes black for a second and reboots again. No CM screen or anything!

I've tried flashing it multiple times, doing factory resets, clearing cache and dalvaic cache. I am at a loss as to what to do next. with the 10.2, instead of rebooting it just gets stuck at the HTC white screen!

General :: Evo LTE - Phone In Reboot Loop?

May 26, 2012

I went through the long process of setting up my new Evo LTE yesterday. Basically, installing and configuring a bunch of apps. Everything was looking good and working well. So the last thing that I decided to do last night was to give it a reboot. I saw it reboot (and was nice and fast) so I walked away. When I came back I noticed that it seemed to be rebooting again. So I watched it. The phone starts up and I can unlock it. I see items in the notification bar starting, I see a message right above the bottom menu bar appear stating "Content update error. Try again later.", and then about 30 seconds later the screen goes gray and then reboots. I have time to get in and look at settings and uninstall things - about 1 minute. But I really do not know where to start.

Is there a way of preventing apps from auto starting at boot? The phone is stock (no root).

General :: Can't Use Gingerbreak After Factory Reboot

Feb 25, 2012

I pressed hime, down key, and power to boot into the recovery console on my virgin mobile Optimus V. Looked around and told the phone to reboot when I didn't see what I was looking for. Phone was rooted previously using Gingerbreak.APK v1.20 After reboot phone was no longer rooted? Also programs and such were deleted, but super user app remained. Downloaded and installed gingerbreak again. Fire it up and I get a big, fat, steamy pile of "Could Not Extract Assets!" error message. Tried a couple of fixes I saw on the developers site, but nothing seems to be working for me. How to get my phone rooted again. I have Terminal Emulator on my phone, or I can do it through my computer's cmd window. Either way works for me. I've been sifting through and trying all kinds of stuff for the last 5 days.

General :: Apps On SD Card Gone After Reboot

Oct 1, 2010

I am running Project Elite and it is a great Rom. My problem is not Rom specific as it has happened to me on SS, Sapphire and Project Elite.

Following any reboot, all of apps on SD are not available, and only show the default green icon. Back when I used Launcher Pro, I would just keep restarting it and the apps would eventually come back after several LP restarts. I am now running ADW (with zero redraws), but the apps do not come back with the launcher restarts. I generally must reboot the phone numerous times and eventually, they come back, but this process sometimes takes several hours or longer. I do not know if it is OS related, ADW related, or an issue with the SD card (which seems to work fine otherwise). The amount of downtime I experience with this process is becoming a significant problem for me, and would really like to resolve this.

I also notice that when I am in this state, the apps all show up in the "Settings, Manage Applications", but are greyed out. During this period where the apps are accessible, I can still access content on the SD card through Astro, Root Explorer, etc.

I notice when I click on any application (including ones in internal memory), in the manage applications menu, it will just hang and never give me the file size, data size or cache size. I must do a force stop to get out of the settings menu. Lastly, in this state, I can not install any applications from the market, update any apps from the market or restore anything with Titanium. So something seems to be going on that is effecting more than just the apps stored on the SD card.

One final observation/question, I never created an app2SD partition on my card. The apps move to the card and function just fine, once the phone eventually recognizes them, but didn't know if this was somehow contributing to my issue.
