Motorola Droid 2 :: Contacts Phone Number Not Displayed

Sep 16, 2010

I got my Droid 2 a couple weeks ago, and I'm having two problems with my contacts list: 1) For some contacts, the phone numbers aren't displayed when I view the contact. To see the numbers, I have to edit the contact. This is only true for some, not all. Is there a setting somewhere that this is controlled? 2) Sometime when I go into my contact list, I see a list of social media items for my contacts instead of their names (which is very frustrating). What controls this?

Motorola Droid 2 :: Contacts phone number not displayed


Motorola Droid :: How Contacts Are Displayed

Nov 19, 2009

One of the main things is how names (and other information) is displayed in the Droid, and I'm wondering if there is a way to change it (I can't seem to find a way or another thread).

Mainly, I would like the LAST name to be displayed first (ie - Smith, John D.). The other thing is - Is there any way to get the person's company or relationship to show up under their name? I carry a lot of contacts with me when I travel from many different companies and the Blackberry did this.

Motorola Droid X :: Contacts To Be Sorted By Last Name But Displayed As First Last

Jul 23, 2010

I know in the Contacts app you can press the menu button to get to settings, but it looks like Motorola has removed the display options selection from the menu.

I want my contacts to be sorted by last name, but displayed as:

First Last

John Smith

So it is displaying the names correctly, but it is sorting them by first name instead of last. Is there a way to change this on the Droid X?

Motorola Droid X :: How To Get Missing Contacts Displayed In List?

Aug 3, 2010

If you have missing contacts in your contact list (even if all contacts is selected) but when you search for them they come up, here is the worlds easiest fix. Log into your google mail on your computers browser, click "contacts". In the left hand column the 1st row says "my contacts", note the total.Now 2nd to the bottom there it says "all contacts". If that total is more, click on it. At the top of the list of names click "all", In the column to the right there is a box that says "add to my contacts", Dont worry it will not duplicate contacts. Click on "add to my contacts" Now after this my phone started syncing contacts automatically, if yours does not, force the sync in the settings, accounts, google. as soon as its done, your missing contacts are now displayed.

General :: Droid 3 Contacts Have Phone Number - Same Contacts In Gmail Do Not

Jun 22, 2013

I have contacts on my Droid with phone numbers that the same contact in Gmail do not have. Some history:

I have a Droid 3. My Accounts include my main Gmail acct, a gmail acct I hardly ever use (no contacts issues there), a pop3 account and a Touchdown-Exchange account which I dont need because Im not connected to that Exchange server any longer. Some time ago, since I wasnt on the Exchange server any more, I deleted the Touchdown account. Then I realized some or most of my Google contacts had disappeared from the phone. Thinking that this would delete the same contacts from the Gmail servers when it synced, I immediately restored the Touchdown account, restoring the lost contacts to the phone. Are these 2 issues related?

General :: Text Messages Displayed As If Coming From Different Number

Aug 10, 2013

I recently created a new contact in my phone, entered their name, and messaged them with the default messenger. I then realized I entered the wrong phone number so I deleted the contact then created a new one using the same name but the correct phone number and texted them. Now, when they text me, it shows up in its own thread as if it came from the incorrect number I originally entered but when I reply I have to do so in a different thread that displays the correct number. In effect, this contact now has one thread for their incoming messages and one thread for their outgoing messages.

I've tried pulling my battery and SIM but that did nothing. I've tried deleting either or both of the threads and nothing. I've tried deleting them and pulling the battery and SIM afterward and nothing. I've found solutions for merging existing threads but that doesn't work at all for any new messages that are sent or received. It's a bit tedious having to go back and forth between threads just to talk to one person.

Filter Contacts By Phone Number?

Mar 5, 2012

I try to make "type-to" filter in the my dialer. When I tap a digit, there must be a list (ListView) of supposed contacts (all of them have a number containing a part from my dialer TextView). For example, if I tap 555, there must be presented contacts with such numbers:


1st attempt:

String phoneNumberPart = //this is the part of phone number. Only part!
final Uri baseUri = ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_FILTER_URI;
final Uri uri = Uri.withAppendedPath(baseUri, Uri.encode(phoneNumberPart));
Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(uri, projection, null, null, null);
2nd attempt:

String phoneNumberPart = //this is the part of phone number. Only part!
final Uri baseUri = ContactsContract.PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI;
final Uri uri = Uri.withAppendedPath(baseUri, phoneNumberPart);
Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(uri, projection, null, null, null);

In both attempts cursor count is always 0, despite I dial the phone number of real contact.

Is it possible to filter contacts by this criteria, using Android uris? Or there is no way but "get all contacts, iterate over them and check their numbers"?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Phone Number - Transferred Contacts From My Old Phone

Nov 4, 2009

I transferred contacts from my old phone (Samsung Instinct). One of the numbers was a voicemail for another location. On the Instinct you put in the numbers with a pause in the string which allowed you to delay entry of saved access codes until the right time. Is there a way to do this on the Hero?

Motorola Droid X :: Facebook Contacts Linked To Phone Contacts Missing Options

Jul 17, 2010

I got my DroidX on 7/15 and on 7/16 linked all my phone contacts who have facebook to a facebook contact via social networking. I kike how the phone sets the picture, I like that in the contact entry it shows me thier status on facebook. What I don't like is that when I open up a contac that is both a phone contact and a facebook contact and I tap the facebook icon on the contact screen I get 3 options (view profile, write on wall, and poke). If I open up a contact that is only facebook and tap that same Icon I get 4 options (view profile, message, write on wall, and poke). Is there some reason linking the facebook contact to a phone contact needs to remove that option? I'd like to be able to send a facebook message from the phone to any contact as easy as I can send a text message.

Motorola Droid X :: Automatically Sync Facebook Contacts With Phone Contacts?

Sep 7, 2010

Just wondering if there is an app or a procedure to get your facebook contacts to automatically sync with your phones contacts as well as your google contacts. For instance if you add someone as a friend on facebook and they have their email and phone number filled out in their profile, that information would automatically be added to your phone. Is there a way to do that?

Motorola Droid X :: Will Not Call Phone Number?

Jul 21, 2010

My work number is a contact, if I choose that contact to dial, the X goes to do it but in the reception bars area a red circle appears and the screen reverts back to the previous one. I can dial other numbers fine and there is service. My work number is also in all my co-workers contact cards as well. I had one contact that I deleted and added again, and then the X would dial and the call go through. Any thoughts? It is only a few numbers this happens with, no pattern I can see yet.

General :: Multiple Contacts That Share Same Phone Number

Nov 14, 2012

Just switched from a PalmPre+ and am still trying to learn about ICS on my Droid4 but ran into something I can not seem to find a solution for:

I have several conference call contacts that share the same access number and I keep their unique access ID as part of the contact name so that I can type it in when prompted (once the call connects and the contact name is still visible on the dialer pad).


"Adam's conferencee call code 12345678"
Work 1-800-555-1212
"Betty's conference call code 87654321"
Work 1-800-555-1212
"Charlie's conference call code 54637281"
Work 1-800-555-1212

however when manually choosing to dial from Betty's contact list, the android dialer ends up showing "Adam's conference 12345678".

is there a way to "disable the phone# look up when picking from the contact" which ends up displaying the first contact name it encounters in the alphabetically sorted list?

Motorola Droid :: Number Dial To Access The Super-secret Phone Settings

Nov 10, 2009

When I tried to activate my phone, it wouldn't work. So I called Verizon from my landline and I told them and they had me activate it manually. They had me type in some random string of numbers to the phone dial pad and it took me to a screen where I set my phone's ID and other stuff manually (that the activation call would do automatically). I'm just curious as to what's in here. Does anyone remember the number? I can't remember it for the love of me and it's not in my call log.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Same Contact Displayed Multiple Times

Sep 5, 2010

So I searched the forum but no results to what I want to know. After setting up my new D2, the phone has listed some, actually all, of my contacts multiple times. Each contact is listed 4 times, and it's really annoying having to scroll through 400 people when there really should only be around 100. I haven't been able to find any of the contact management options that my old D1 had, ie filters and stuff. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
