Samsung Moment :: Can't Send Gmail Message From Contacts
Jun 30, 2010
I'm totally new to Android, enjoying it and loving my Samsung Moment.I have searched Google as well as this forum for an answer to my question - forgive me if I did not search far and wide enough. So here is my issue.I could swear that when I tapped on an email address for a contact inside Contacts, that a window would pop asking if I'd like to send a Gmail message or a Work Email message (these choices had the little Gmail and Work Email icons as well).About a day or two ago, this option no longer appears for me in Contacts. Instead, when tapping on an email address inside a contact, I am taken straight to the Welcome screen to setup up Moxier Mail, which I do not want to use.I would like to just use the native Gmail option. But now, it appears as though my Contact email addresses no longer connect to the option of sending via Gmail or Work Email
On my second Moment and this one has been ok(with the exception of airplane mode) until now... I tried to send a text eariler and I got the message not sent error then I tried to make a phone call and it wouldent go through.. the call timer didn't even pop up. The odd thing is my internet works fine... I. Went back to factory settings via menu privacy reset and still no phone.
I have the Samsung Fascinate obviously but I'm annoyed with one Android feature. I managed to get only my contacts to sync what I want (not e-mails). However, when I send text messages, the message contacts seems to all the e-mail addresses I've previously sent e-mails to.
Is there any way to get rid of that? And why the heck isn't it the same as my contacts?
In Gmail I have my contacts sorted by groups, easy enough, on occasion I need to add a new group or move a contact from one group to another, which is easy enough using a pc and my Gmail account. However, I cannot seem to add new groups or edit existing groups on my Moment. I can see the groups, I can sort by groups, but I cannot find an option that will allow me to add or edit any groups. Does anyone know how this is done on the Moment? I suppose I could use the browser to log on to my Gmail account and change it from there but isnt that sort of redundant since I am on my Gmail account using the Moment? Also, maybe someone knows when Moment contacts sync with my Gmail why dont the contact photos sync? One more thing, anyone ever on a call and it goes dead and after a few seconds the phone rings with unknown in the caller ID. When answer it is some from my address book that should have appeared in my caller ID Anyway, now I have to quickly hang up on this person to call the person my phone hung up on to receive this call. Its like the call waiting gets disengaged and hangs up the present call to allow the new incoming. I also had this problem on a HTC Hero I had before I got the Moment also.
My parents just recently bought their first smartphones. They both have Samsung Moments now and think the phone looks promising, but they've already ran into their first quirk. I searched for a good halfhour to see if I could find an answer to their problem but I couldn't find anything. So without further adieu.their problem. They had older phones that used simcards. The sprint store loaded all of their contacts onto the moment and all was peachy. As soon as they went onto the market they had to establish a GMail account to be able to use the market. Once the GMail account was established all of their contacts were wiped. We can't find them anywhere. If anyone has had this problem or would possibly know how to locate the contacts it would be greatly appreciated if you could post the steps to do such a thing. Also if there is anyway to put a simcard onto a computer and transfer it to a phone they still have their cards and I could try to do that.
I have noticed in the text message app if I create a new message and click the icon button next to enter recipient to choose a contact from my contacts there are contacts from just about everyone who has emailed me on my gmail account! This is not ideal at all.. I Would like just the contacts in my phone to be available. How do I remove all of those gmail contacts.
I dont know if its something I did or not but...when I try to forward emails from my Droid Gmail account I get a message that says "Send this message without text in the body". If I continue then it forwards but nothing comes with it.
Why does the People / Contacts entry automatically set up a 'send message' for every phone number even if the phone number is not a mobile number? That means that even though 3/4 of the phone numbers don;t have text message capability, they have a send message.
I am new here, and just got my new Tattoo, (love it). But I have 2 questions 1. How do you send a text message to all of your contacts? 2. I have inserted a wrong notification on the calender, and cant delete it. How do I delete it?
Is there a way to eliminate all the send messages in address book except for the Mobil line. Why do they put send messages on land lines. I have some address contacts with 6 numbers then I have 6 send messages contacts to match every Tel Number.
I want to Send a message to multiple Whatsapp Contacts/Groups using "Tasker" with "WhatsTasker" plugin .I tested my implementation to send SMS message to multiple contacts and it works well. But when I try to send message to whatsapp it sends the message only to the first index (Contact/Group)
Also, I have test this to send a personal message to 2 contacts but it sends the message only to first number .I tried to trim the "@s.whatsapp.net"/for contacts and "@g.us" for groups in 2 variables then add them inside whatstasker After the number -> Still sends to only first number
I thought it's because it's using root access and Toast message displays so I used "Wait" action for 10 seconds inside For loop after sending the message but still same thing only first contact will receive the message
Code: SMS (9) A1: Variable Set [ Name:%msg To:Test tasker Do Maths:eek:ff Append:eek:ff ] A2: Variable Set [ Name:%telephones To:90123456789-1395136140,91234567890-1395136053 Do Maths:eek:ff Append:eek:ff ][code].....
I just got my first android phone and set everything up last week. i now have groups and stuff in my gmail/google voice contacts that arent on my phone (used vzw backup to oginally get contacts on my phone) i would like to now update the contacts on my phone to match the ones in gmail and good voice....everytime i go to update contacts it uses the vzw thing....is there a way on gmail or google voice to send contacts to my phone?
set up the wifes new moment her gmail still says 109 unread I went intp gmail on the pc and marked all as read then refreshed on the phone, no luck, tried going to manage apps and clearing all gmail and refreshing, still no luck short of one by one deleting all 109 any way to fix the count?
Is there a way for me to sync my outlook CONTACTS to my moment? I use googlecalendar to sync my outlook events with my google calender so my moment gets the events, but what about contacts from outlook?
How come new contacts created on the phone are not showing up in my Gmail account online? Is there a way to keep everything synching in both directions? Most of my contacts are in Outlook, but I'm trying to use Gmail to keep things simple.
I recently upgraded my phone to the leaked Froyo and ever since then I have been having a weird issue with my messaging. I will send a message to someone and when they respond it will actually be displayed before the one I sent them. This is kind of hard to explain so I will do my best with an example. Instead of the messages being in this order:
all of my contacts are not assigned to any groups. i would like to delete all of them and re-import my sim contacts because all my gmail contacts are mixed in with my sim contacts on the phone. what i would like to do is clean off my phone contacts and re-import all my sim contacts so I don't have the google contacts cluttering up my phone contact list.
Been using Handcent for a long time now and generally happy with it. However I get random "failed to send" error messages. Over time I've come to discover that most of the time the message is an error and the intended txt message was indeed sent. If I resend most say they get the same txt multiple times. Is anyone else seeing this? I was gonna post over on the Handcent forum but I'm not registered there so figured I'd try here first. This has been happening for months now over all the version upgrades. I'm actually not so sure this is a Handcent thing or a hardware thing. And again this is very random and doesn't happen all that often. Using Firmware 2.1 update 1.
I own the Moment, which I want to throw through Sprints windows, and randomly, with full bars, get Error 97 or Error 7 when attempting to send text using Handcent, I have called Sprint on this several times over the last month or 2, each times, they do whatever they do on their end, and it works for a while or it doesn't. I finally take it to the store today on advice from a tech saying there may be an antenna issue, the tech at the store says no issues and that handcent MIGHT be my issue. Anyone ELSE seeing these network errors with Handcent? I don't believe that's the issue and feel Sprint just doesn't want to deal with it.
I have searched for a bit but cant find anything helpful. I signed up to get a invitation to Google voice, but still haven't received an invitation. So im trying other options. Any good programs out there to send texts from your pc to cell phones? I want to be able to hook my cell phone up to my computer to send them, so it doesn't cost anything.
