Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Phone Contacts And Gmail
Sep 2, 2010
I put all my contacts on my phone from my sim card, great no problems, then opened a gmail acount which was usefull for editing and adding email addresses to the contacts. But I now have a problem where, if I add a new contact to my phone, say a name and mobile number, it will soon disapear when the phone synchronises with gmail. The only way I have found to add new contacts on the phone is to put them in gmail first on my lap top. I know It is possible the stop synchronisning but surely gmail shouldnt take contacts off my phone?
Because of several issues with SE sync, I am trying to use Google sync instead. However, this is also not working as expected: I wished to have all my phone contacts transferred from the phone to Gmail contact list. I started with an empty Gmail contact list. I enabled Google sync as described on the SE website. I don't know exactly what it does, but I also enabled Settings -> Data synchro -> Gmail (perhaps related to my e-mails?)
Result: Calendar syncs without problem. Contacts do not transfer from phone to Gmail Second trial: I created a new contact "A" on GmailI created a new contact "B" on the phoneI ran sync Result: Contact "A" synced successfully from Gmail to phone. No sync of contact "B" from phone to Gmail. Third trial: I modified contact "A" on the phoneI ran sync Result: The modification done on the phone did not sync to Gmail Hints from the phone: When I try using Google sync for calendar, the sync icon shows for some seconds, before the date of last sync is updated. All ok. When I try using Google sync for contacts, the sync icon shows for 5-15 minutes. It then disappears, but no date of last sync is added. When I check the contact list, contacts have been synced from Gmail, but not to Gmail.
When I select Settings -> Data synchro -> Gmail, the sync icon blinks for some seconds with a yellow warning triangle. I don't know if this is related to my Gmail e-mails. The e-mails in the Gmail app are loaded without problem.I have already tried going to "manage application" and clear data for "Gmail" and "Gmail storage". I should probably mention that I synced my phone contacts with Gmail some months ago, without problems. This means that my Gmail contact list was not empty when I started messing with this. However, on my first sync attempt, contact lists on the phone and on Gmail were not synced. Instead, all Gmail contacts were added to the phone, causing 95% duplicate entries. I exported my Gmail contacts, deleted the entire Gmail contact list, and synced again to remove duplicate entries from the phone. Then started the process above. I would rather avoid deleting all the contacts from the phone to reload them from Gmail or SE sync, because addresses, facebook/twitter connections, etc. do not sync well.
I'm having "fun" with syncing my X10 with gmail. Like an idiot I turned on the sync with the default "All contacts" setting and discovered that it'd hosed my phone's contacts (because I didn't have any in gmail - it's a new account). So I put some of the contacts back in and switched to the MyContacts/ Starred Android Contacts bit. Gmail contacts then seemed to be saved to the phone, but there was no exchange the other way. This morning, I tried a manual contact sync (from Settings) and it 'spins' for about 1-2 seconds and then stops, leaving the symbol up on the screen, and the last update time isn't updated from last night. Needless to say the new contacts from the phone aren't being sent up to gmail. A quick check of the phone logs (Android System Info app) isn't helpful.Edit: forgot to mention that Calendar sync works fine - with events being exchanged between X10 and gmail just fine. I know there's 'issues' with the initial sync (according to Google's support forums) but anyone out there had the same problem and - more importantly - got a resolution.
while in the process of setting up my phone, i created a gmail account, which i need so i can use market, etc. Just wondering if anyone knows how i can go about removing that gmail account. I spell my name wrong, so want to remove that email account and register a new one, but i can't find anywhere where i can delete it, it just keeps coming up to put my email in. I have deleted the incorrect gmail account on their website.
Is it possible to have 2 gmail accounts? for ex: i have a gmail personal account, and also a work account which i want to use my calendar as it tracks our days work. is this possible i cant see where is can set up a second one?
I got my new Xperia X10 yesterday, and when i went into the phone book for the first time to copy contacts from Sim i made the mistake of coming out of the setup wizard, and now i cant see how to copy from sim. Someone please help, i have no contacts on my phone!
Can anyone tell me how to go about transferring my contacts from Ovi on my PC to my new phone Xperia X10i. I have currently downloaded my contacts and everything else on to an old Nokia phone and am sending each contact individually via bluetooth.
I cannot save all my phone contacts of x10 mini to sim card. I imported all my contacts from old Sim to new x10 phone now I want to use that sim to put in other phone but cannot import contacts to Sim - there doesnt seem to be an option. Very annoying.... Should not have thrown away old sim.
can we use our sim card contacts instead of the phone?after i sync my phone to sony ericsson website, more than 50% of my contacts disappeared from my phone.when i sync again hoping to get from SE website back to my phone, even the SE website is down by more than 50%.tried to copy the contacts from sim card to phone and it keep telling me 'the process com.andriod.phone has topped uneapectedly. please try again.' HELP! or else need to key in a number at a time for over 200 contacts.
So it goes the the screen where it says type in your email and password to unlock. I don't even remember my username or password. Some people say type "null" but it doesn't work. I'm willing to restart everything can anyone help me to reset this phone?
I have updated my phone because I had gotten some new contacts through facebook, and I would not ..Therefore, I also update the phone again to reset it all ..Now I can not get the contacts in the phone book, though I had backed up everything. And last time I updated my phone, there were no problems getting the contacts out again!?When I send an sms I can easily find my contacts, search for a name!Can not figure out how to have them in my phone again ..So I have the latest update on my Sony Ericsson x10 mini and finally I got the latest on there was no problem with getting the contacts in the phonebook!
I have 2 type of contacts on my phone, they are googlemail contacts and sim or phone contacts.Im getting annoyed that whenever i ad a new contact it saves on googlemail account, which i dont want.What i want is contacts to be saved only on phone or sim.How do i completely stop googlemail butting and saving contacts?
I am unable to synchronize the contacts with my phone. Whatever I add in the phone, it is synchronized with Gmail and I could see the new contact in the Gmail contacts. However, whatever additions I do in the Gmail, such as adding new contacts etc, are not reflecting in my phone.
My old C905 has all of its contacts backed up via PC Suite onto my computer and can also connect via PC Companion. However the C905 has different options when in PC Companion to my new Xperia X10 when it is connected and the Xperia does not work with PC suite. How do I connect my backed up contacts on my PC to the new Xperia?
From my late c702 I have a contacts backup (.dbk file) that I'd like to import to my Xperia mini. How do i do that?Alternatively, I have a csv file that I could import. Can PC Companion do that? Editing contacts in Google contacts isn't too user friendly.
Whenever I receive incoming calls, the caller, and even the phone number, doesn't appear to me, that is, the caller always appears as unknown. This means that I don't know who my missed calls are from if they don't get to voicemail. This isn't because of privacy settings on the other phones, I know, because some of the people have public numbers. Does anyone know what's causing this? And if you do, is there a way that I can fix it?
I utilize a Sony Vaio SZ series notebook withXP SP3 and Windows Outook (with Office Pro 2003). How will I be able to sync my mobile phone contacts and bookmarks from previous SE phone models that are saved on my hard drive and put them into the new Xperia X10?
I have been using HTC Touch HD (windows mobile 6.1) and recently bought Xperia X10. I have tried couple of webiste and also bluetooth options to transfer the old mobile contact to Xperia X10 but doesnt work properly.
I earlier used Sony Ericsson W810i phone. That phone had a Sinc. software to sincronize with your computer. Therefore my contacts were there firmly on my computer. Recently I purchased a Xperia X10 mini pro. When I tried to sincronize using the website, my phone contacts all went disorgarganised and certain things were deleted. How can I get my contacts in Windows 7 Contacts to my new Xperia X10 mini pro phone?
Just a bit of a weird happening, when I got the phone out of the box I transferred all the contacts over via Bluetooth with no issue. I have since updated Android 1.6 and again repaired that update and lost all the contacts. Now when I try to Bluetooth them over I just get all the names and no numbers.
Is there anyway I can fix this? I tried getting all the contacts onto the sim card, but no luck.
I lost most of my contacts on update to 2.1. BUT - there is this facebook sync thing that looks really cool.
I tried this, and now, opening my Phonebook shows all my facebook friends with their facebook profile pic, and number (if they have entered one on facebook). Sweet! Less work for me!
BUT - a lot of my facebook friends do not put their number on their profile, so I need to add the number for these Phonebook contacts. However, there seems to be no way of adding a phone number for them; and these people do not appear when I want to select a contact to send a text to? What is that all about? How do you add phone numbers to contacts that were synced in through facebook, so you can then select them when you want to call or text them?
