HTC Incredible :: Disable Google Contacts Sync

May 4, 2010

On a stock Android system, it is possible to disable sync for Google Contacts, Calendar, etc. Under Sense UI on the Incredible, there is no way to uncheck "contacts" under "Accounts & Sync" that I find. I have disabled the entire Background Sync, but of course that disables the Market. Is there a way to disable Google contacts sync that anyone has found?

General :: Disable Google Contacts Sync And Force Store Locally In ICS

Aug 1, 2012

Actually turned out simpler to do than i initially thought it would be.

Enables "Keep Locally" ( keep_local ) option for adding new contacts instead of forced google account.

Prevents google from deleting all you contacts when you remove your account

Disables google contact sync

The offending package comes with gapps if you got google that way.

GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk you will find it in /system/app/ (need root file explorer to see it though)

You can make this fix in 3 ways, the first may not need root but i cant test as my phone is rooted.In Settings>App find it in the list of all installed apps, click it, click disable. (can do this without root)Use a root file explorer such as "Root Browser", navigate to /system/app/ backup the app .apk to your sdcard for example, then delete it.You can also try clicking the app .apk in "Root Browser" and choose uninstall, but i could get this to work.

Thats it ! , no need to reboot. (to test it worked, just navigate to Settings>Accounts>(your google account) and you will see there is no longer the option to sync contacts)

Apr 29, 2010

In my other android devices there was a setting to have only my grouped Google contacts sync with the phone. The problem I'm encountering is that I have thousands of Google contacts from anyone who has ever sent me an email and I don't want them in my phone contacts. Same thing goes for facebook. I only want the phone to pull Facebook data for those contact already downloaded from Google.

General :: ICS / Disable Google Contacts And Move Contacts To Phone

Apr 16, 2012

I don't want my contacts to be synced with Google. IIRC, this was possible in 2.x. Having upgraded to 4.0.4, I'm not able to disable Google contacts.

I'd like to:

1. Disable contact sync (this works)

2. Change all contacts from Google contacts to phone contacts

3. Add new contacts as phone contacts by default.

Using the "Accounts and Sync" settings, I'm only able to deselect "Sync Contacts", but I can't find a way to move the contacts and disable the creation of new Google contacts.

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Sync Google Contacts With Phone?

Aug 31, 2010

I set up my Google account on my phone but my contacts do not appear in the "People" app. One solution I read was to check if the contacts were stored on the phone itself and not the Google account, however I checked and they are in fact stored under the "Google" option (People > View) When I click on the sub-option under Google ("Show auto Gmail contacts") then it shows *every* contact I've ever emailed in the "All" list, but it still doesn't show my groups that I've set up in the "My Contacts" list. So, how do I do this? All I want is for "My Contacts" to sync with my phone, not everything else.

HTC Incredible :: Disable Facebook Contacts In Phonebook

Apr 29, 2010

This seems to be a very annoying feature if there is not a way to disable it (and I can't find one). I have my google contacts all set up and they are the only things I want in my phone book. I know in "people" I can just show google, but when I got to dial a number, all of my facebook friends with numbers show up too. For some reason they are showing up in my google contacts too (when I log into gmail on my computer). It is nice how the facebook picture syncs with my contacts, but that is all I want, not everyone on else facebook who are not in my google contacts.

HTC Hero :: Way To Sync Google Calendar And Contacts To The Phone

Oct 18, 2009

Is there a way to sync Google calendar and contacts to the phone calendar and contacts?

I deleted all my outlook entries (calendar and contacts) from the phone because it was creating duplicates. Now, I am syncing my Hero with my Lotus Notes calendar at work, as well with my Google calendar. I can see all appointments on my phone. However, I can't see Lotus appointments on my Google account, neither my Google calendar entries on my Lotus Notes.

How can I sync them all? If I import my Google entries into Lotus, it will create duplicates in the Phone and vice-versa.

I don't see any advantages for Google entries to be separated from my other entries. I have one list of contacts and that list should be the same across all programs I use. The same for calendars (actually it is useful to have multiple calendars, as long as no duplicates exists).

That, for me, is the biggest drawback of the HTC Hero. My Moto Q was a lot worse phone than the Hero, but the calendar and contacts sync was much better.

HTC Hero :: Google Contacts Deleted From Phone On Sync

Aug 10, 2010

I'm having a real problem with my phone. My contacts are set up to sync with google which works fine. All my contacts are Google contacts. However, if I create a new contact (setting it as a Google contact), then when it syncs with Google, rather than creating the contact in my GMail account it wipes the contact from my phone.I can't be the only person experiencing this, is there a solution?
