HTC EVO 4G :: Unsync Facebook - Pics And Especially Birthdays
Aug 24, 2010
Can i get rid of facebook sync'ing, pics and especially birthdays...the phone did it one day automatically, I never wanted it to do this...I dont care about 90% of these folks birthdays, really...(i am kinda cold like that...)
My 'accounts & sync' settings have always had 'facebook' turned off for syncing, and I have never turned it on. Yet this morning i was playing around with the bit in 'people' to try and see if the facebook bit in there worked and i would be able to link a contact in there with their facebook account. It asked me to log into facebook (after which incidentally it could not then find the contact in facebook lol). After that i went to the calendar and it now shows ALL 2500 facebook contacts birthdays!!
Please tell me there is a way to undo this. at no point did i ever select auto facebook syncing, or choose to import facebook calendar. Obviously now the calendar is pretty unusable as there are multiple bithdays on every day.
I hav more than 1200 frnds in facebook and the contacts is taking up more than 21MB of space in my phone memory. I just want to sync my google contacts. As soon as I log in facebook in timescape, the contacts start downloading from facebook.
Is there any way that i can unsync my facebook and twitter in my contacts so tat i hav only my google contacts in my phone? Xperia X10 mini pro. Android Eclair (2.1)
I bought my HTC Legend a few days ago. Today I've pressed "sync all" and now my calendar is FULL of my Facebook friends' birthdays - it's annoying as hell since I'm using the calendar to keep precious dates and appointments in it... how can I remove them?
So I have all my contacts synced with their Facebook profile. I've ticked to use their profile pic and birthday in their contact info. When I go to any contacts details it has the little blue Facebook F next to their photo and also next to their birthday, so I know that it's all synced.
The one problem I do have is when I go in to my calendar none of the birthdays are listed.
I've gone in to the Calendar menu and checked that I have Contact Birthday and Events calendar ticked and listed.
My Google calendar is showing fine and syncing between the phone and the web.
Is this just some bug where Facebook birthdays don't show up in the Calendar? I know there are other ways around this but it'd be nice if the contact info was used better. I was kind of excited about being able to view my contacts events with the calendar, I could of easily seen what I could and could not attend.
Also an extra note, the Contact Birthday and Event Calendar does have some birthdays in it. It has mine and it also has a friend whose Facebook profile I have not linked.
Does anyone know how to sync my contacts birthdays (those that don't have a Facebook) with my calendar?? My calendar displays all my Facebook friends bdays but not my contacts without a facebook. I have to manually enter their bday in calendar even though I added it to the contact info...is there a setting to automatically add these contacts bdays?
Since the 2.2 update I have had double Facebook birthdays showing in my calendar. 1 from the old method of posting the URL in google calendars and the other from Facebook under the calendar option. After trying over and over to erase the original way from my phone with no luck, I decided to just delete my Gmail calendar all together and then reload it onto my phone. Once I did that, I restored my Gmail calendar and made sure the Facebook calendar option is checked. Now, I have NO Facebook birthdays at all. No matter how many times I check, uncheck and refresh the calendar, the birthdays refuse to come back.
Anybody have any idea why my contacts which are also my FB friends have birthdays listed in the People Profile a day before their actual birthday? When I look on their FB profile, the date is correct. When I look in their contact info in my phone, its a day off. And how would I go about fixing it b/c I can't edit FB information for other people?
Ok, so this is my first time with Android. When I first set the phone up with Facebook, it pulled EVERY friend I have and puts them in my phones contacts. After searching, I found that I can unsync them in my 'all' contacts list etc, but they are still showing up when I push 'PHONE' at the bottom of the home screen. They are behind the dialer. Is there anyway to set that screen to show recently dialed numbers or favorites or something?
After figuring out how to sync my Facebook contacts with my phone contacts, I found that I now have the birthdays of all my Facebook friends on my Jorte calendar. Does anybody have any idea on how to remove this?
I have a question about facebook calendars. I really want to start using the calendar on my phone more often to stay organized (EVO 4g). I also like the idea of having my friends' birthdays auto load into events from facebook. However, I don't want ALL the birthdays of my facebook friends on my cal, if that makes sense.
In other words, I have too many friends. Does anyone know how to manually choose which birthdays you get events for? Or is it simply time to start dumping some excess facebook friendage?
Having all my facebook contacts who have their mobile nos on their profile coming up in my contacts and all the ones with their birthdays coming up in my calendar. Any idea how I can stop this because it's annoying having all this info I don't want amongst the stuff I do.
I found my calendar was lacking birthdays so I recently imported all(some) of my facebook contacts' birthdays to my phone and I'd though I'd share the method i used here
Go to this facebook application called Birthday Exporter Press 'Download iCal file' and save it somewhere you can find it again. Now go to Google Calendar Under the tab 'My Calendars'(to the left), press 'Create' and create a new calendar called Facebook Birthdays (or whatever you wish) Now click Settings (upper right corner) > Calendars (under the title) > Import Calendar. Now import the ics file from step two to the 'Facebook Birthdays' calendar, which imports all the birthdays as all-day events repeating each year. Now you're free to either: Keep this calendar as an 'external' calendar which will show up on your phone calendar in a different color if you acces the MENU > More > My Calendars Select which birthdays you'd like to import into your personal calendar by clicking on them in the calendar and import to personal calendar, remembering to select yearly repeats (I chose this way as i only chose to keep about 20% of the birthdays it imported in my own personal calendar)
The list bbcodes don't seem to work well on my browser.
Is it possible to use a contact's facebook pic that is NOT their profile pic? I have a couple of friends who have some funny pics on their facebook profiles and I would like to use them instead of the linked profile pic.
I know there are many apps that let you upload pics and text to your personal profile on facebook....but I've been looking and I cant find a way to do that with facebook groups. Im the admin of a facebook group and so far I have not found a way to update the group page.
