HTC Desire :: Where Are Contacts Stored

Oct 30, 2010

Initially I setup Exchange active sync, but contacts wouldn't sync and I had to use HTC sync to manually sync them. Recently, after a root/froyo upgrade, they would sync via active sync. I used the "People" app as my main contacts list.

All was working fine up until last night when I was playing around with security settings and went into the Device Administrators section. I canceled back through the screens but it still deleted my Exchange account.....I'm 99.9999% certain that I canceled that screen. Ok, no harm done, I managed to set it up again.

On syncing the Exchange active sync the first time, all of my calendar items doubled up, so I manually cleared them and manually cleared my contacts also (just to be safe).

The next Exchange active sync worked for my mail and calendar but failed for some reason for contacts. This did start syncing later, but didn't appear to do anything.

My "People" app showed no contacts. Not long later, some contacts showed up, but surprisingly, they were my family contacts. I don't know where they came from. They are not on the SIM (the SIM doesn't contain any contacts). Currently my "View" for People shows:

SIM (9) - unticked
Google (0) - ticked
Show auto Gmail contacts - ticked
Phone (0) - unticked
Facebook for HTC Sense (139) - unticked

Based on these settings, no contacts should show in People.

The "Contacts" app shows the same family contacts, but also a couple of extras that were added to the "Favourites" group.

Now the really confusing part is: the "Search People" app has ALL of my lost contacts. They also all appear when I start the "Phone".

I also added a new contact, but it didn't show in "People". It does appear in the "Search People" though. I think it may have been synced to Exchange.

So can anyone help with with finding where they are stored? They are clearly on the phone. How can I get these contacts to appear in my People app again?

HTC Desire HD :: Cannot Delete Contacts Stored On My Sim

Nov 3, 2010

When I put my sim card into my phone when I bought it, it has only displayed around 7 of my 60+ contacts which were stored on my sim. I have tried managing this on HTC Sense, but like everyone else most of the features are not working for me. I do not however have any idea how to delete the contats off my sim or just change settings to make sure my sim contacts are not displayed in my contact list.

HTC Desire :: No 'Favourites' Stored In Google Maps

Sep 9, 2010

I'm new here and new to the HTC Desire but understand most of the Apps that can be used on this neat phone. One BIG niggle I have is that the Google Maps App on this phone does not allow you to save 'favourites' or 'starred' places on the phone, like your home or work place if you use the phone for navigation from A to B. I have searched here to see if this topic has been mentioned before but cannot find anything. Looking at Google Maps Mobile 'help' it does say that you can 'star' destinations and save addresses in your 'favourites' but do you think I can, well no.

HTC Desire :: Can Applications Be Stored In MicroSD Instead Of Internal Memory?

Apr 1, 2010

The HTC Desire has limited memory of around 570Mb RAM and 512Mb ROM. The MicroSD card can hold up to 32Gb. So, why can't HTC allow apps be stored in MicroSD card? If HTC/Google's concerned about piracy issues, i.e. copies of apps from microSD card to another microSD card, etc. There is one way round to this problem: They could have installed some kind of unique crypto-key within the Desire's ROM, and any apps saved to the microSD card are automatically encrypted on-the-fly with this crypto-key.

When apps are accessed, it is decrypted on-the-fly, too. In other words, apps will ONLY work with THAT phone it shares the SAME crypto-key. Putting a microSD card containing apps into another Android phone will not work, thus solving the piracy issue. Therefore, a message to HTC: Please allow apps to microSD card (as much as 32Gb card) and BEAT iPhone/Nokia N900 at their game!

HTC Desire :: How Do I Get My Contacts In Gmail Back Onto Desire?

Jul 16, 2010

So Ive been messing with my contacts and exported them to Gmail where I edited them.I now want those contacts back on my phone as google contacts but don't know how to do it.In the people setting I currently have all my contacts saved as 'phone' but there are some errors. The ones Ive edited on Gmail have all the errors fixed.I have no contacts as 'google' in the people setting.Ive tried syncing with google (with contacts selected) but nothing came through. Could this be because I still had the contacts open in Gmail on my laptop ?I also tried selecting export from Gmail which created a CSV (or similar !) file, however this file was only a few bytes in size and when I saved it on the SD card and tried to import in people there was nothing on it ?So all I want to do is get the correct contacts from Gmail onto the people app on the Desire under 'google' contacts.I feel its something simple that im not doing right.

HTC Desire :: Why Some Of My Contacts Are Different?

Jul 5, 2010

Ive put two people widgets on one of my home screens, one for friends and the other for family.On some of the contact photo's there is an icon overlaid of a business card and on others its an icon of a phone.For example the photo of my mum has a business card icon. When I click on her pic from within the widget it opens up her contact info from where I can choose to call her home, mobile, send text etc.One of my friends photo's has the phone icon, I have two numbers for him in his contacts (home and mobile) yet when I click his picture it automatically goes straight to the dialer and calls his mobile. This is a pain if I want to call his house phone.Can anyone explain why some of my contacts are different ?When I upgraded to the Desire and put my SIM in it, I copied my SIM contacts to the phone and then selected to only show phone contacts as this go rid of the duplicate contacts.I also had to link various contacts because when I copied from the SIM they were all split up ie Barry - Home and Barry - Mobile were two separate contacts.

HTC Desire :: Contacts And Syncing

Jun 7, 2010

Is it best to store your contacts on your sim card, your phone or via Google?

Also, how easy will it be to sync or copy my phone contacts to my PC? Just as a back up more than anything -to make things easier when I get a new phone.

I'm not too bothered about calendars etc, as the missus does that for me! I don't think I've ever used a calendar on a mobile phone or computer in my life!

My primary e-mail address is a hotmail address. Is it possible to have this on the Desire? My understanding is that it's possible, but not for "push" e-mail? Eg. I'd have to check it manually in the mail app?

I do have a Google e-mail address for the Market etc

HTC Desire :: Syncing Contacts

Aug 28, 2010

I just got the HTC Desire and I like it a lot - except for one thing: It is really awful at handling contacts. I have 250 friends on Facebook and 200 contacts in my gmail contacts and some on my SIM card as well. When I want to send an SMS I really only need access to those on my SIM card, but I get all the information from both gmail, SIM card and Facebook. Some people have 5 entries: One from SIM card, one cell number from Facebook, one home number from Facebook, one email from Facebook and one email from gmail. It is really cluttering up my list and makes it very confusing to send an SMS. Strange thing is: When I enter my "people" list I have set it up so it only shows people on my SIM card.

How can I make "Search People" only show the information from my SIM card? Of course I could just delete my Facebook account from "Accounts and Sync", but that still leaves the gmail information.

HTC Desire :: SMS Go To Wrong Contacts?

Aug 11, 2010

This is an alarming bug, and for all I know it may affect me regularly.I use the standard HTC "Messages" sms app, and I'm on Froyo (but think that's irrelevant)Just today I was exchanging smses with person A, then decided to send one to person B. Person A then asked why I'd sent them a confusing sms. It was the one for Person B, Here's the kicker ... the sms that went to the wrong place, still appears in the correct person's message thread. ie it appears in the list of person B's messages, instead of person A who actually received it When I select the details of the sms, it shows the number of the person it actually went to, and no that number's not on the contact details of both people.This is pretty crappy. Some of the smses I send are quite personal, some are quite formal. I can't have them going to the wrong people, it might cause severe issuesAlthough I can't find anything about this on the HTC Desire forum, there are posts about on other Android forums going back to earlier in the year!This is a sneaky issue. How do *you* know all your messages have gone to the right people? You only find out if people tell you.
