Samsung Captivate :: Text Particular Number From Contact Menu It Doesn't Work
Nov 11, 2010
My phone strips the area code from only one of my contacts preventing the text from going through. I have changed the contact name, deleted and readded, but anytime I try to text this particular number from the contact menu, it doesn't work.
I am sorry if this has been covered. I am coming from a 3g and can't figure out how to add multiple numbers for each contact. The tech @ the at&t store transfered them from my iphone for me. Only one number per contact transferred. Also is it better to store them on the sim card or phone?
So everything I read has been from back in Sept. and I just wan't to make sure I'm not doing something wrong. Media Hub doesn't work on the Captivate right? In the sense that it tell's me it's not supported in my country (USA)... Or is there something wrong with my phone?
I have my phone set to display only numbers on the SIM (or only on the phone.. doesn't really matter) so that in the contacts app and the contacts section of the phone app I don't have duplicates of everything. However, even when this is working correctly, in the contacts section of the text messaging app, it still shows two of everything.
I am completely exhausted to think logically right now..... I am sure it is pretty easy to implement
I have a menu item which when selected would call another activity class. I am using switch case to select between menu items. I tried creating an Intent to start activity using the Class name but doesn't work.
When using my sms app, I am looking for a way to display which phone number of my contact is used (mobile, work, home, ...)
The only thing showed is the contact name and his phone number.
With all the sms apps I've tried (stock, hangouts, hello sms, 8sms, evolvesms, chomp, handcent), I didn't find a way to display this information. I always have to do an extra action (clik on contact photo, or title bar) to check if the phone number concerned is 'work' or 'mobile'.
I had some fairly simple code in my app to invoke Edit Contact activity on a known good contact index that worked in Android 1.6 but is broken for me now in Android 2.1 on the Droid. I built a sample activity/app 'EdCon' to show this:
So I have my Facebook account set to sync with my contact but I use Google voice all the time for text and phone. Is there a way to get the pictures that go with my contact to show up when they text or call my gvoice number?
All my pictures are from Facebook so if everything works right the pictures I see in gvoice should be the same as the profile pix in FB.
In my contacts list when I press the contacts button, I see each contact once. I have it set to only show contacts from my phone. When I go to send a text message and press contacts, my contacts are there multiple times, but I can't see any differences because they are named the same. For example, my son Adam shows up twice in the contact list in text messaging, but only once when I press contacts from my home page.
I was looking at my upgrade options and total pricing with regard to the Captivate. When I added the phone as an upgrade, not only did it not make me choose a data plan, it didn't even give me a choice to pick a data plan (at the moment I have just minutes and texts). Is this an error on the ATT system or you can get the phone and the data plan is only set up once you use the phone?
Because what I am thinking is upgrading 2 lines on my family plan - my line with an iPhone which requires data when you purchase the phone, and the Samsung on the line that will not get Data. I will only use one phone (the Samsung on my line) and sell the iPhone brand new in box. Will that work or will ATT realize when I only have one phone in use on my plan even though I 'upgraded/renewed' two lines?
I put my phone on vibrate and everything seems to be working fine except for some parts..when i get a text my vibrate doesn't work [i'm using chompsms] but when i'm on the phone and i get a text my phone ivbrates or when i set the keyboard to vibrate it doesn't work or i get mail notifications of mail or from fb it doesn't work but other than that all the vibrates seem to be working fine. can anyone help me? i was wondering if i could just press the factory reset on my phone to see if that would work but i'm rooted.. would that effect anything? like if i were to do that, would it brick my phone since its rooted? i was going to unroot it and bring it in to sprint but i heard that there were some issues when people tried flashing back so i don't know if i want to do that..
This is probably a dumb question but this is my first phone that uses a sim card. If I go to settings and status for phone number it says unknown. On my previous Android phone with verizon it knew my number. The Google voice app doesn't seem to be able to read my number either but the phone itself seems to work fine.
I'm in a group next with numerous people, mainly iPhone users and group text works perfectly fine with them. However, when receiving text from other android users (GS3 & Note 3), I receive their text separately.
I am currently on a GS3 on 4.3 using the stock messaging app.
I have an Android ListView, backed by an ArrayAdapter. When the user clicks on an item in the list, that item is removed. This all appears to work fine, you can click on each item until there are no items left.
However, it all goes wrong once text filtering occurs. Once the list has been filtered once, even if that filter is cleared, all subsequent calls to remove(Object) on the adapter fail to remove the item from the visible list. I've tried calling ListView.clearTextFilter() before removing the item, calling it after removing the item, and not calling it all. There's no difference.
I've looked through the source for ArrayAdapter.java and it seems that once filtering is set, the adapter uses one collection to respond to queries but updates a different one. I can see no obvious way to get it to revert its behaviour. Is this a bug or am I missing something?
I am a business user that has been a Blackberry user.Recently moved the to Samsung Fascinate.Love a lot about it but noticed that the contacts that have phone numbers followed by an extension the Fascinate lumps all of these numbers together rather than dialing the 10 digits and asking me if I want to dial the extension. Thus the call does not even go through because the 16 or more digit number now is not recognized as a valid phone number.Does anyone have a work around with an app or a new release?
I have had the SGS for a few days. It must be possible to add more than one number to a contact, but I can't find it. I thought that Samsung would have a better manual on the net, but I can't find that either. Any ideas?
I'm using Android 2.1 on the Galaxy S.I have multiple numbers defined per contact, e.g. mobile, work, home. Whenever I make or receive a call, the name is shown, and the phone number is shown underneath the name instead of the type that the number is associated with.Any way to show the type (mobile, work, home) instead of the number itself? Otherwise are we supposed to memorize which numbers belong to work, mobile, or home?I don't even see any icons, or colour changes that would signify one of the types.
I want a user to be able to long press a contact and be offered a menu item of my own that can run an activity of my own.

When I open contacts app, i see four options at the top : contacts, groups, history and activities. I have successfully linked my facebook contacts and calendar through SNS setting option (automatically syncs every 1 hour). When i click on the activities menu at the top, I could see all facebook updates in there. Works like a charm. Just one question. Select a particular contact (who also has a facebook account) from the contacts list. You will see four options again: Info, History, Acitivities and Media. When i click on Info i see all the contact information like phone number, email address, Linked contacts, and facebook link under web address. When i click on History, I see all the calls made and received to and from this contact. When i click Acitivities, I just see Link Contact Option and don't see anything else eventhough i have linked my facebook through SNS setting. Also, the media is empty and how do i add one?
My GPS doesn't seem to work, when i open google maps and select my location it says your location is unavailable, It also doesn't work in telenav or any other GPS related app, anyone know what might be the problem? and yes GPS is on, and I dont mean Network because that one doesn't give me the right location.
Before I knew better I looked at the default voicemail number and said "well that's not my number." and promptly changed it. Does anyone know what the default number should be? Is it the same for all phones or should I take it to the ATT store and have them fix it? Will a factory reset solve my problems?
