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?

HTC Desire :: Contact Number Changed When Synced To Facebook / Fix It?

Apr 23, 2010

Ive looked all through Desire threads and cant find anyone thats had this problem yet so lucky me i guess!

Whenever i sync a contact to Facebook, for some odd reason it changes the number for that contact. The number i have for the contact matches that of the number on their Facebook account.

I.E. 07890123456 on my phone, 07890123456 on their Facebook account( fake number, don't be silly ).

However, as soon as i sync the account to my contact on my Desire, the number changes to 447890123456.

try to call the contact and says numbers wrong, clearly because its suppose to be +44, not just 44.

have tried to edit number but still says 07890123456, and still wont work when i change it to +447890123456.

Anyone able to help?

HTC Desire :: Set Mobile Numbers As First Phone Number For Contact?

Sep 27, 2010

Some contacts have different phone numbers. And when I send group SMS, the message is sent to the first number of the contact. So is there a software that can reorganize the position of the phone numbers? So that the mobile numbers are the first in the list.

HTC Droid Eris :: OTA 2.1 Contact Number Defaulting To Facebook Home Numbers When Linked

May 26, 2010

I am not sure if this came up in one of the topics, but I may have missed it.

For the past week, I noticed some of my contact priority number was defaulting to the number I least call. This morning, while trying to figure how to make priority changes, I noticed it was due to linking it to facebook.

I linked my wife's info with her facebook and the priority number (mobile) pushed it to her home number information she has on her facebook account. So instead of me just going to click on my wife's name or say a command to call wife, I have to scroll to find the number I want to call.

I there a fix for this to let us set the priorities?

HTC Desire :: Each Contact Has Every Number Twice

Jul 23, 2010

First off, I have to say this phone is amazing and by far the best handset I've ever had.ight, my problem. I use Outlook contacts at work and had a Windows mobile before this one. The contacts appeared to sync into Desire no problem with HTC Sync and I was using phone with no issues. I then decided to see if I could have mail sent to phone like a Blackberry. I went to 'accounts & sync' and set up my work domain etc. The email side of it works fine. since then I noticed that my contacts in 'People' are normal. When I go to send a text, everything from a contact is listed twice. I use Handcent, but it happens in HTC message app as well. Each contact has 'linked' in top right corner and if i tap it the two contacts for the same person are 'Phone' and 'Exchange'. Any ideas how I can remove one of these?
Is HTC Sync, syncing with Outlook and the Desire sync settings are syncing with the Exchange? Any help on how best to set this up is appreciated. I do want to have Outlook contacts as they are full of notes about customers.

HTC Desire :: Shows One Number Per Contact

Jul 14, 2010

I've just taken delivery of my brand new HTC Desire and I'm having a little difficulty importing my contacts from my old SE W995. I've put the SIM card in the new handset and it seems to have recognized some of the numbers but as far as I can see its only showing one number per contact whereas my W995 let me save a few different numbers for each contact (work, home, mobile etc) - is there any way to get the HTC to recognize this without keying them all in again?

HTC Desire :: Facebook Contact Linking

I've seen a few threads on here about this but none with an answer to my question.I want to keep facebook on friend stream but i want to remove the contact sync option.Numerous people have said to remove the facebook for htc sense option in settings->accounts and sync.then to re-add the account and quickly untick the "sync contacts"box. I've done all this except for the last bit as there is not a check box.I can only imagine that the app has been updated to not include a check box.

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?

HTC Desire :: Can One Select Which Facebook Photo To Appear In Contact

May 3, 2010

I just bought this phone. I was playing with the contacts and was wondering: can one select the facebook photo you want for each contact?

I have linked the facebook profile to my contact. I can choose "facebook" for the contact's photo, but I have no control over which photo is displayed.

Can I:

a) select a specific facebook foto?
b) save a specific facebook foto from the contact's facebook pictures and set the saved photo as the contact's picture?

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.

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.
