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.
I was wondering if the X10 can do the same as my last android Hero, which basically link the facebook info contact to my related phone contact, including the picture. I guess this wont need any hardware, but software. Has this improvement being asked or is it planned for future updates?
I've just started linking people I have in my phonebook to their facebook accounts manually and I've clicked the wrong persons name in the facebook list. Is their anyway I can rectify this? When I try to edit the contact it does not give me the option to unlink said contact from facebook. Also can anyone please tell me why when I'm trying to search through the people in my facebook contacts it only goes up to the letter B?
I'm am trying to link some phone contacts to my facebook friends. Most of them work, but sometimes when I manually try to link someone and "pick a facebook friend off the facebook friend list, sometimes my friends don't show up on that list?
Has anybody found a way to remove Facebook contacts that HTC Sense Facebook adds to the overall phone book once you sign into this app? (The list that appears when you press Phone and not the People app.)
It's quite annoying having to trawl through lots of unnecessary non-Google Contacts entries to find the legitimate ones I want in my phone book.
My All People list has never had the Facebook View ticked and correctly displays just my Google Contacts, which is the only View ticked, but when you click on Phone the phone list displays all my Google Contacts and all my Facebook friends who display a phone number. I haven't found any way to remove these Facebook contacts from the Phone list, not even unchecking the Contacts Sync option for HTC Facebook works. The Phone list needs the same View option that the People app has got.
How does HTC Sense Facebook make associations with Google Contacts?
I've got three contacts where the phone has auto linked Facebook to Google, one doesn't have any details that match, Facebook name is different and they don't share their e-mail address on Facebook, and now has code in the notes section of their Google Contact entry to make the link, the other two names match their Facebook names exactly and don't have any code in their Google Contacts note section.
I am some facebook contacts that don't have phone numbers on their fb accounts so I go to People and then click Add Contact, I enter their name and number and then I hit save. I then have to search for the contact and then edit and link them. Is there a more efficient way to do this? For instance, is there a way to link a contact from the "Add contact" form instead of hitting save and then searching for the contact you just saved?
I've seen other threads about multiple contact lists etc. My problem is that the phone is linking COMPLETELY different people that have the same first name! This almost caused me a HUGE problem (guys you know what I mean) I tried just clicking on "phone contacts" in the list, but I'm still having the problem.
I had to go and delete my friend stream and delete my account because I kept getting force close errors when trying to update my friendstream. Now all my contacts are not linked to their facebook accounts anymore. When I try to re-link them they say No matches found. I know their names are correct. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I had to get a new EVO because my charging port failed on my first one. When I got the new EVO, I entered my gmail account & all my contacts came back down to the phone. I have re-installed all my programs and Facebook is working. I CAN NOT get my facebook to sync up with my contacts. I go into people, select the link icon, click Link to Facebook and it does nothing. I also went into Menu-Settings-Accounts & Sync and clicked Sync All (my facebook and gmail address are in there)--it runs the sync and I still get nothing. I pulled the battery, I updated my PRL & profile but it won't work. I even uninstalled Facebook, reinstalled it and it still won't work. Does anyone here have any ideas on how I get my FB contacts to sync up with my contacts?
Just got the Hero with Vodafone and have had no real problems, just wondering when i link my saved google contacts with there FB profile via the Hero, it allows me to pull there FB picture through as well but this doesn't seem to be displaying? I have looked at sites about FB privacy settings but couple of my friends have not got there privacay settings turned on.. still no picture?
I'm trying to link my contacts with my Facebook friends so I have their pictures etc in my phonebook/messaging. The problem is that when I try to link them, it only displays my Facebook friends from E-Z. It won't display/let me link to any contacts before E in the alphabet.
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?
After having linked all my contacts with their facebook profiles. their profile pics came up on their contact info. HOWEVER now they do not update. for e.g when they update their profile pic on facebook. my desire wont update it to their contact info on my desire. i have syncing automatically and manually through settings...but no luck. what am i doing wrong?
So yesterday after being utterly sick of waiting for Orange to release 2.1, I made the leap and rooted my phone. I found it fairly straight forward and played around with a few ROMs finally finding VillainROM 12 to suit me the best. Only problem I've encountered so far, I can't link Facebook profiles to my Google contacts at all.
When I'm in the People App, I go over the Sync screen, enter my Facebook username and password to enable it. Then when I go onto a contact, scroll to the Sync screen and press link profile, it says there are no matches and there are no Facebook profiles in the list to link it with. I just get the message "No Matches Found" in the list instead. I have tried logging out of Facebook for Sense and logging back in, but its to no avail. The list still stays empty. I had all my contacts linked back in 1.5 HTC Sense.
If I go to People> Update and Events> then click Link to Facebook and enter my info i keep getting an error message that says 'The service is currently unavailable. Do you want to try again?' How do I fix this damn thing?
When I first entered my account info for google and facebook it automatically linked my google contacts and facebook.
Forward to today and I had to delete and resync my contacts, after which it seems it wants me to link every contact individually. I must be missing something, surely there is a way to just tell it to make all suggested links.
Ever since switching to 2.1 (now on the newest leak, and btw does anyone know how we'd force the OTA to take if it doesn't on its own?), i am unable to link contacts on my phone to facebook people, which means no pictures, updates, or anything else.
I'm quite loving my Hero (T-Mobile UK) and rather like the ability to link contacts to their facebook profiles if only to have their birthdays remembered. The problem is I keep getting logged out (possibly just when I reset the phone) and when I log back it has forgotten which contacts were linked to which profiles.
Is there any way to automatically sync all your facebook contacts with Gmail contacts? My Incredible syncs some of the contacts but not all of them. I know there is the option to "link" information on your contacts but I have a huge number that have not linked and it would be a paint to manually go through all of them and do this on a contact by contact basis.
I just recently got my xperia x10 and had to almost immediately upgrade to the 2.1 system. I am noticing a few things that I'm not fussy about from the 1.6 system but the thing that is bugging me the most is that I cannot (figure out how to) link contacts in my phonebook to their facebook and twitter accounts. In 1.6, when you edited a contact it gave you the option to click LINK. I cannot find any of this on the new system. As well, for contacts that I had linked before, their facebook profile pic (current from the time when i linked them before upgrading to 2.1) shows up on their contact information (i usually only link facebook, as i dont use twitter as much) and their profile is linked. However when i go into EDIT, it says FACEBOOK, Timescape and a big exclamation mark that has a message beside it saying : Timescape Plug-In Manager contact information is not editable on this device. i SHOULD be able to edit and link all my contacts. that was the whole purpose of the xperia having this timescape program.
ALright, so I just went from the original samsung galaxy to the htc desire and one of the first things I tried was to sync contacts with facebook. I only want existing contacts to be synced so I chose not to use the facebook for htc sense app as it will sync all facebook users and add them to my contact list (correct me if I'm wrong). So I tried to sync with facebook for android but nothing happens when I chose the account. I get prompted to sign into the app, which I do, I get into the app like normal, but no contacts are synced. Returning to the accounts settings page I cant even select the facebook. It is there to add but when I hit it nothing happens. I did sync with the official twitter app with no problem which I noticed with the samsung galaxy (running froyo) should be the same procedure. Kinda strange issue if you ask me... anyone else encountering this problem?
I am new to android OS, when i synced my contacts with google, i started adding the facebook profile to each contact. The problem is by mistake i added the wrong profile to the wrong person. How can i change it or remove this facebook profile from this contact card.
