I just made the switch from an iPhone to the Note 3. I was wondering if there is a way to make the contact stored on my device and the duplicate Facebook contact all into one instead of having two separate ones.
Contact Sync for Facebook got an update to 1.0.2 which adds StartApp and stuff which can read/write your browser history/bookmarks, I failed to read the "what's new part" and didn't notice the new permissions for accessing of the browser history. Therefore I would like to go back to the version 1.0.1 but for some reason I can't find the APK to download somewhere.
I want to sync my Facebook images INTO Google contacts. Is there something that will do this?
"Contact-Sync" or "haxsync" do not do the job as it relies on simply joining contacts and display correctly for only one phone/rom. Problem is that the image is only linked on your phone but not really linked directly to google contacts.
Setting an image to a contact from a file appears to do the trick but there is no way that I know of to automatically set a facebook picture into google contacts.
So one of the features I really liked about my iPhone, and my windows phone devices was that I could simply go into my gallery app, and view my Fb albums right from the device. I recently got on with t-mobile, and purchased a Samsung Galaxy SII which I love in most respects..
The gallery only displays the photos I take, but I want all my fb albums displayed too... how do I accomplish this? Is there an app I can download, settings I can change, voodoo rituals I need to perform??....
I have a Galaxy S4 and I synced all my contacts from Facebook with that of my phone. My idiotic sister logged out of my account without my permission, logged into hers and left it like that. Now my facebook account wont sync with my phone contacts again. Everytime i go to my contacts, tap on options and go to 'accounts' and select my facebook from the list of accounts i've added, the 'sync now' button works but when I click on it it says 'sync disabled'.
I went onto my FB app and looked for account sync options but I couldnt find any.
one can have multiple twitter, email etc. accounts on Android (running 4.1.2 on a Galaxy Note), but only one Facebook account. However, I have two of them and I need *both* their contacts sync'd to the contacts database (one is my "private" profile for close friends, the other is for work colleagues etc). Also, the built-in Facebook authentication has the same problem as the contact sync - I don't want to run games like Real Racing under my "public" FB profile.
Any way to make two FB profiles on one device? Maybe with something like a "virtualization"?
Last week I purchased a new Note 2 (which I love!) and one of the first things I did was to sync with my Google account and get my Google contacts installed back on the phone. Second thing was to install the Facebook app and sync my Google contacts with their appropriate FB profile photos, account info from Facebook. However, upon telling Facebook to sync with currently existing contacts, I noticed that my Contacts list was now populated with *ALL* of my facebook friends.
Previously on my Evo 4G running Gingerbread 2.3.5, this worked perfectly. My Google contacts were the only contacts listed but their FB profile data showed up just fine. I seen there were some 3rd party apps on the Play Store that will do this, but I'm wondering if there is a way to do it with just the original FB app.
I know that the next kitkat update makes galaxy s4 users from Verizon use Google hangouts. So in preparation of this coming, is there anyway to sync hangouts with Facebook contacts? My biggest issue is that I want the Facebook pictures of the person I am talking to to show up in hangouts similar to how it does/did in the text messaging app.
Unhappy with Samsung's stock ICS version, I moved on to a CyanogenMod9 nightly build for my SGS2 - an admittedly risky thing to do on April 1st - which proves fantastically stable and fast.
However, when I installed the Facebook app, I found that the option to sync and merge contacts is gone. From the app, but also from the Accounts and Sync option in Android's settings. It still says "Facebook" under the accounts that I can add, but nothing happens when tapped.
I wiped and re-installed everything, but to no avail. The setting is no longer there and I cannot sync my Facebook contact details with my existing contact list.
I have contact pictures for my contacts that I have chosen and assigned to my contacts manually and are stored as the Google contact picture, I have an issue with the facebook app when it syncs a facebook profile picture update the application forces the contacts default picture to be the facebook picture.
I don't want it to do this, it can change the facebook linked contact picture but why does it have to change the contacts default picture?? Is there some way this can be blocked or stopped from within Android contacts??
This has been prevalent since before I can remember with the facebook app and sync. Surely submitting a bug to facebook is not the solution as we SHOULD be able to control and/or lock portions of our contacts details..
Just got the EVO and have been messing around with it and set my facebook up for the newsfeeds and such. But is there a way to not sync all my friends on facebook to my contacts but still have it signed in on the EVO? I have too many people on facebook that don't have numbers so it gives me a million email addresses I don't need or even doubles some of my contacts.
When I first received my Evo about a week ago, without doing any manual work my pre-existing contacts were synced with facebook. Facebook didn't add contacts, it just put a picture beside them and gave me some additional details on them, like birthdays and emails. Since, I've messed roms and the like, and have lost this. Now when I try and sync (even on the stock evo rom) it will only pick up a few of my contacts, about 10, and thats it. Not only that but their is an annoying little "f" facebook logo in the corner of their pictures too. Can anyone tell me how to get this to work again? Currently I'm running Myn's Warm, a sense rom, and going to settings > applications > facebook for sense > sync contacts.
Also, is there anyway to tell it not to add every single fricken birthday to my calendar as well? I didn't ask facebook to sync events and birthdays to my calanders, thats just too much going on.
If I should ask this here or on the root forum but I got DM 6 and everything is asop, plain and stock Android 2. 2 but what bothera me is the my facebook contacts don't want to sync with my Google contacts in my phone, I'm using the regular Facebook app and I don't see an option to link manually like the HTC sync one.
I initially rejected facebook sync as my 'funny' friends have certain numbers such as 999 as their mobile numbers. Didn't want all this crap in my phone so avoided it. Having now ported all my numbers in how can i sync facebook with certain people (my gilfriend and close m8s etc etc) but avoiding doubling up their numbers and e-mails and so on that's already on the phone. All i really need is their pic and status updatesreally
I just bought the Wildfire and have got the hang of it.
My problem: I did not put off the sync feature for facebook and now my calender and my contacts are filled with hundreds of people i never interact with. and i somehow cannot erase all the hundreds of birthdays of those people in my calender. the only option i think is to do a Reset. does that delete all my contacts in my sim too? )
When I sync my contacts to facebook, I then have the option to choose which name I want them displayed as. Either my GMAIL saved contact, or their Facebook name.
When i choose the FB name, after a few minutes or later that day, it eventually reverts back to the Gmail name. Some names end up permanently staying as the FB name, and some I have to consistently save as the FB name over the period of a few hours for it to stay put. This gets very frustrating, anyone experience similar issues?
Also, side note. On the keyboard, anyway to get back the standard Android Keyboard without losing Sense? I miss the Android OS smilies....
My contacts photos do not update I've told it to sync through the People, Facebook menu, & it appears to be syncing - endlessly it NEVER finishes.I have about 500 contact so I assume it may take a while, but it goes all day & night & never finishes.
i just got the HTC desire loving it by the way.. but the only problem i have at the moment is that i can't seem to be able to sync my facebook with the phone. i have managed to get my contact card, however, its not picking up any of my friends.
I logged out of Facebook through the Android App then logged in and all is well. I dont know why it had to come to that, it should do it automatically.I have even done battery pulls which should theoretically log me out, oh well, it works now.I have done some searching around and there was a problem with Facebook a couple weeks back, but I dont think this has anything to do with that. I added a new friend on Facebook on the 25th of July, I also added them manually into my People on my Inc. For whatever reason when I go to the Link part of the contact and go to the Facebook Link, it says to pick from my friends. He does not show up in my friends if I am browsing through the link area. I can go to facebook from the phone and from the computer and he is there. It is making me insane.Also the profile pics are not updating, and havent for many months. My wife's picture has not changed on my phone's end in 4 months, but on the actual Facebook site it has.
I just rooted my Samsung Moment using Radioactive FroYo 1.8.7. Prior to this I was using the official 2.1 build from Sprint/Samsung. In my Facebook for Android app there was a setting that automatically synced my Facebook friends and my Contacts. After I rooted and installed the app again (same version) the option is no longer there.
Is it an issue with root or am I forgetting something? Currently I am using syncmypix but I would like to sync more than just profile pics. if I can get the option back somehow? Or if there is another app that syncs contact info and profile pics?
