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

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 :: Google Maps App Doesn't Sync Names With Google Bookmarks

Apr 17, 2013

I'm using the latest version of Google Maps on JB 4.2.2 [Nexus 4]..I noticed that I cannot edit the names of my locations in "My Places" in the phone app. So I used Google Bookmarks (google.com/bookmarks) from my PC to edit/rename My Places. However, the names do not sync or carry through to the Google Maps app on the phone. The names in the app are still the generic names, coordinates or street names.

Is there any way to change the names of My Places and get them to sync with the phone app? Really baffling!

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..

General :: Sync Contacts Multiple Google Accounts

Dec 20, 2012

I have the phone running Android 2.3.4 (rooted).I have two Google accounts setup on my phone. I use both of them as there are apps purchased from both accounts.

I would like to sync contacts from my phone to BOTH the accounts. As of now, contacts are being synced to just one Google Account. In the "Accounts and Sync", I see both the Google Accounts listed, with the "Sync Contacts" option enabled for both accounts.

Is it possible to sync contacts to both GOOGLE accounts from the phone? If yes, how?

General :: Disable Google Contacts Sync And Force Store Locally In ICS

Aug 1, 2012

Actually turned out simpler to do than i initially thought it would be.

Enables "Keep Locally" ( keep_local ) option for adding new contacts instead of forced google account.

Prevents google from deleting all you contacts when you remove your account

Disables google contact sync

The offending package comes with gapps if you got google that way.

GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk you will find it in /system/app/ (need root file explorer to see it though)

You can make this fix in 3 ways, the first may not need root but i cant test as my phone is rooted.In Settings>App find it in the list of all installed apps, click it, click disable. (can do this without root)Use a root file explorer such as "Root Browser", navigate to /system/app/ backup the app .apk to your sdcard for example, then delete it.You can also try clicking the app .apk in "Root Browser" and choose uninstall, but i could get this to work.

Thats it ! , no need to reboot. (to test it worked, just navigate to Settings>Accounts>(your google account) and you will see there is no longer the option to sync contacts)

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.

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.

Motorola Droid X :: Sync Only Facebook Contacts Who Are Also Google Contacts?

On my Droid there was a setting to only sync Facebook data for contacts who also were Google contacts. On the X, there doesn't seem to be that option anymore.

Has anyone figured this out?

HTC Desire :: Google Contacts' Birthdays Calendar Doesn't Update

May 7, 2010

I added the birthday to a contact the other day but it didn't appear in my calendar on the phone, even though I have the Google 'Contacts' birthdays and events' enabled and it has worked fine in the past.

To cut a long story short when I add a birthday a new entry is created in the Google calendar but it doesn't appear on the phone even after multiple syncs. The only way to get it to appear (or to get the test ones I tried, to disappear) was to remove the calendar from the phone and then add it again (Calendars>Menu>Remove----Menu>Add).

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Sync Google Contacts With Phone?

Aug 31, 2010

I set up my Google account on my phone but my contacts do not appear in the "People" app. One solution I read was to check if the contacts were stored on the phone itself and not the Google account, however I checked and they are in fact stored under the "Google" option (People > View) When I click on the sub-option under Google ("Show auto Gmail contacts") then it shows *every* contact I've ever emailed in the "All" list, but it still doesn't show my groups that I've set up in the "My Contacts" list. So, how do I do this? All I want is for "My Contacts" to sync with my phone, not everything else.

HTC Incredible :: Disable Google Contacts Sync

May 4, 2010

On a stock Android system, it is possible to disable sync for Google Contacts, Calendar, etc. Under Sense UI on the Incredible, there is no way to uncheck "contacts" under "Accounts & Sync" that I find. I have disabled the entire Background Sync, but of course that disables the Market. Is there a way to disable Google contacts sync that anyone has found?
