HTC Incredible :: Contacts - Duplicates And Several Accounts

Jul 19, 2010

I'm the only one who has run into this problem, but I doubt it. I am overwhelmed by the contact organization system on my inc. I don't understand it at all, actually. I have the following accounts linked to my phone:

1) Exchange Account (using Touchdown App)
2) Gmail account (using gmail app)

Somehow, all my Exchange contacts have now landed in my Google contacts. How did this happen?! And how do I fix this? Moreover, I have over 4,500 contacts in my Exchange account, and I simply don't understand how the phone displays these. Since I'm using touchdown, which has its own contacts tab, will these same contacts show up when I hit the "people" widget? I can't tell if this widget is getting populated by my gmail acct (which now has my 4500 contacts in it) or if it's coming from Touchdown.

Another annoyance is that I don't want to look through 4500 contacts to find the 10 or so people I regularly call or email. Is there a way to make it so only a select few show in the "people" tab, rather than all 4500? I just had to hard reset my phone and I had a group of 15 people that was saved in my google account for text messaging purposes. When I restored the phone, only 10 people were left in the group, the other names weren't even in my "people" widget anymore. How did it decide which 10 people to save? And why did I lose those 5 people from my "people" widget? What is the difference between putting a tab as a "phone" contact, Exchange contact, or google contact? It seems that they are all linked somehow. I don't understand how to back it up properly.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Duplicates In Contacts

Oct 23, 2009

Last night (the 6th night I've had the phone) I opened People and noticed that many random contacts have been duplicated a few times. There didn't appear to be any correlation with who I had contacted through gmail or facebook, it just looked like a glitch. For now I'm just deleting them as I come across them, but hope this doesn't continue forever.

HTC Incredible :: Put So Many Contacts In Gmail And Facebook Accounts / Delete All Of These?

Apr 30, 2010

I put in my gmail and facebook accounts during the initial setup of the phone. Now I have a crapton of Contacts.. many are just people I have emailed once in my life or some random friend of a friend from facebook. I really don't went them cluttering up my contacts list when I go to make a phone call.

I tried to unsync Contacts in both of these apps, but the contacts didn't go away. Is there some way to delete all of these?

Android :: MyBackup Pro / Remove Duplicates And FB Contacts

Jul 21, 2010

I recently rooted my phone and have been playing around with ROMS and such and clearly needed to back all of my information up. I used the nandroid backup and titanium backup for my apps and then i realized i had no contacts.

So i found mybackup pro and it works great! i actually use this instead of titanium backup now. my only problem is that when it backed up my contacts, i only had like 400+ contacts and now i had 1500

i was able to filter out the extra 1000 by viewing only people with phone numbers, i guess it added all of my fb friends to my contact list. How can i get rid of all of these extra people?

its not just the fb contacts that were added, but there seems to many duplicates which are just linked together. when i go to edit a contact, it asks me which contact to edit, and it lists like 3 or 4 of the same contact name and they all say google underneath.

HTC Droid Eris :: Android 2.1 / Syncing Contacts From Multiple Gmail Accounts?

May 21, 2010

On my Droid Eris (just updated to Android 2.1), I have taken advantage of 2.1 offering support for multiple Gmail accounts. So I have 3 Gmail Accounts in the Gmail app. My question pertains to how Android syncs the contact lists (which include many of the same contacts) from these 3 separate accounts. Will I end up with dozens of duplicate contacts? If so, is there a workaround? Also, is there an easier way to switch between different Gmail accounts? E.g., in the Gmail app, you have to go to Menu then Accounts, which is inefficient. The built-in mail app displays a list of accounts when you open it (an ideal approach), but I would prefer to not open my Gmail accounts in the default mail app.

Samsung Vibrant : Double Facebook Accounts In Contacts Driving Me Insane

Aug 11, 2010

Facebook syncing to contacts was working great until tonight and it is driving me insane.I have two of the same facebook accounts synced.I'm sorry if this is confusing but basically, in Settings>>Accounts and sync: I have two facebook accounts synced but they are the same account.However, I do notice that the two icons are ever so slightly different.I am wondering if this is somehow syncing my facebook account through the app as well as through android.The reason why this is driving me nuts is because the accounts link to the contacts and for several contacts I have two facebook profiles synced, in addition to the phone contact, and gmail contact.This is really bugging the OCD-ness in me. Also when I search a contact to call or text for example, it might show one of their home numbers as "mobile" since it doesn't really know what type of number their facebook number(s) are.This problem started today when I shared my first picture through my phone onto facebook. I found it weird that it asked me to sign in again since I thought I had already done so through the app 'm sorry for such a long post, but I am wondering what I should do.Does this mean I should get rid of the facebook app?

HTC Incredible :: 2.2 Google Accounts

Jul 28, 2010

It seems that 2.2 locks google talk into the first google account you sign up with.I thought on 2.1 I could sign in to the account I wanted to use, however it appears that's not the case now.I use gmail (for google checkout) however my main "google" account is an apps account.So I believe for the market to be associated correctly with my gmail account, that one needs to be created first.Any way to get google talk to use my apps account, or any way to play with the accounts (create, clear/remove, re-add) to get them setup so the market works with my gmail account but gtalk uses my apps account?

HTC Incredible :: Separating Email Accounts

Jul 7, 2010

So after about a month of waiting, I finally received my Incredible yesterday. i've been screwing off at work most of today messing with the phone. So far, everything is going well and I'm getting used to the software and functionality. I do have one thing that has me stumped though. I setup my personal hotmail email and my work email on the phone and they are both under the "mail" icon on the main screen. I'm wondering if there is a way to separate them so that I will basically have 2 "mail" icons on the main screen.

Media :: Track Duplicates - Won't Play Anything

Nov 16, 2009

i finally got doubleTwist to sync my music. Now it turns out in every audioplayer i have downloaded I have duplicates of every track (one for each time I synced) Also, the "official" audio player won't play ANY tracks at all. Nothing will play. Just keep getting the annoying message: "sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file."

Which is impossible, as I used doubleTwist to sync in the first place. And I thought that everything got converted so it would work. Now it seems everything - including what did work beforehand - won't work now. I'm really starting to dispair as i bought this thing to replace my ipod that got stolen a few weeks back and am now on contract and really don't want to be regretting it.

I talk mainly to the same few people, with a few others scattered between, and it would be nice if I had the option to see each contact only once in the call log. (Maybe have the call times viewable if I open the contact's entry in the call log.)

HTC EVO 4G :: Clear Duplicates In Phone Not People?

Oct 7, 2010

my new employer gave me an evo 4g. i synced it with my google account. had a very organized list of contacts, with groups... it created dups even 3 or 4 copies of each contact... i immediately went to Phone settings > applications > manage applications and removed data... it appears my "People" contacts list and groups are no longer duped...

However... on the home screen, when i click on "phone" above the dialpad, there is a list of my contacts... it's duplicated, but i think it's somehow cached... how do i clear this in application data so it reads from my actual synced people list (which is still no longer duped; only unique entries)?

It's weird why it populates duplicates... John Smith will appear twice.. example
John Smith
916-666-6666
John Smith
9166666666

I'm not sure why some are dashed and some aren't.. referred back to my google contacts.. they all have dashes... is evo creating the duplicate with non-dash? ugh... so confusing.

HTC EVO 4G :: Sync Exchange & Outlook With No Duplicates

Jun 6, 2010

Is there a way to sync my outlook and exchange data as the same appointments and info on my phone? For example: When I was on winmo, my Exchange appointment and outlook appointment would update each other not create a duplicate. Now that I've synced my PC, I have the same appointment twice on my phone. Green for Exchange and Orange for Outlook. Is there anyway to keep the data the same? In other words, if I have a 5pm meeting on exchange, and I sync with outlook, I want both sources to update the same appointment. Not create another 5pm meeting.

HTC Desire :: SMS Duplicates After Vodafone Bloatware Update

Aug 5, 2010

if anyone else who was unfortunate enough to install the latest vf 'update' noticed that all of their sms messages had been duplicated! which as you can image is a pain in the parts if like me you have alot of messages. I have managed to sort out a work around for this. I used 'sms backup and restore' SMS Backup & Restore - Android app on AppBrain to create an xml of all my sms messages I then wrote a quick vb.net program which checks the xml file for any messages with duplicate timestamps and message contents and removes the duplicate. Then you can just restore the edited xml file. I realise some people might be dubious about using an exe file which someone posts on a forum but i have attached it anyway if anyone wants to use it. I could post the code if anyone wants. Anyway just thought that it might help some of those unfortunate souls like myself who foolishly 'updated' their desire

Hey guys, quick question regarding facebook syncing with your phone contacts

I think this is a cool feature as long as it only syncs with the names in your contact list, but not adding all your facebook friends to your phone, but I was wondering,

Does syncing all these pictures and e-mail with contacts (say you have 2-300) use up a lot of storage space?? Would it be better to not sync them for the sake of storage?

Thanks

Motorola Droid :: Contacts Only Syncing To Google All Contacts Not My Contacts

Jan 16, 2010

I seem to be having a sync issue with my Droid.When I add a contact to my phone, it doesn't sync into "My contacts" in Gmail; it'll sync into "All contacts". So, a couple of questions:

1) How can I get the phone to add new contacts created on my Droid into "My contacts" in Gmail?

2) I'm trying to understand the point of "All contacts". Why does Gmail want to keep a list of anyone that I've ever sent an email to? Otherwise, it'll be simple enough to just merge the two groups and call it a day.(Note: When I bought my Droid I did NOT have the VZW sales person transfer my contacts or any data from my old Blackberry to my Droid. I used Google Sync on my BB and synced my contacts from my BB to Gmail, then when I got the Droid, it automatically pulled my contacts from Gmail.)(FWIW, yes, I did a search and found two great threads: http://androidforums.com/support-troubleshooting/15042-how-do-i-push-droid-contacts-back-gmails-my-contacts.html and http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid/15069-contacts-dont-really-synchronize.html but I have a different situation than most of those guys and I'd actually prefer to sift through and merge a couple of contacts from "All contacts" to "My contacts" every once in a while than deal with a backup and factory reset.)
