HTC Desire :: Can't Save A Phone / Google Contact Number / Way To Fix?

Jul 14, 2010

I just purchased my new HTC desire and i have a problem : 1) Adding a new contact number to either phone or Google account. Name/surname are saved but the phone number doesn't get saved; so when editing the contact, no phone number appears. Then, when gonig under Phone and typing the letters of the name just added, i can find it in the drop list of "guessed names" with the number right under the name. I want to be able to view my contact and see the phone number from the application People; and that's impossible now because of this problem.

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 :: 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 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 Incredible :: Google Voice Number Isn't Version Cell Phone Number

May 24, 2010

I've experienced two problems with Google Voice that are causing me to get charged minutes I wouldn't usually get charged. If I can't solve them, I'll have to go back to using my Verizon number. First, let me say that I'm using a new Google Voice number that isn't Verizon cell phone number or any other preexisting number. Second, my girlfriend is on my family plan, but she doesn't have GV yet. We're using the 700-minute plan, so we don't have a friends circle.

Problem 1: When I call my girlfriend's Verizon wireless phone using the GV on my Verizon phone, I get charged, and when she calls my GV number on my Verizon Wireless phone from her Verizon wireless phone, she gets charged. We don't cash in on our free in-network calling. I know, this should have been obvious, but it just never occurred to me until after I looked at the bill. I'd be able to work with that, though, and just select "Call without using Google Voice" or whatever when calling her if it weren't for the second problem. When people call my Google Voice number, I get charged when I don't answer. Usually, it's just a one-minute charge, but sometimes it's two or three minutes (don't know why). With anything less than an unlimited plan, minutes count. Not good.

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?

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?

Jul 18, 2010

When adding new contacts to the droid x, it added it as both a goggle contact and phone contact. (i only have one goggle account setup). I went into contacts -> menu -> more -> settings. I am UNABLE to check/unchecked the "Phone Contacts" (it is always checked). The goggle one i am able to check/unchecked. WHY and HOW can i toggle the phone contact? Also, backup assistant only takes PHONE contacts and not GOOGLE contacts...while g mail contact sync only takes goggle contacts and NOT PHONE contacts.

I just want goggle contacts ( or phone contacts. so i can at least use verizon's backup assistant.

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.

HTC Incredible :: Save As Gmail Or Phone Contact

I'm sure I'm overlooking something simple. At some point I had an option to save new contacts as a phone contact or a gmail contact. But I've lost that option. Now whenever I enter a new number in my phone I have to manually enter it into my gmail account as well. (Lets not even get into the pain in the butt Google Apps account which will NOT sync my contacts from my personal domain) What am I missing here? I've already lost one gals number that I really wanted to call when I did a factory reset and forgot to manually put it in gmail.
