Sprint HTC Hero :: Possible To Have More Than One Phone Number For A Single Contact

Oct 30, 2009

I have a question about the "People (Contacts) app". Is it possible to have more than one phone number for a single contact? I am assuming so by the way the manual is written. I have tried to follow the instructions on page 34 of the manual "adding a number to an entry in People". Step 2 directions do not exist. "Tap ADD>PHONE". I do not see that as an option. Am I missing something?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Add Received Phone Number To Contact?

Mar 31, 2010

I am trying to take a phone number from my call log and edit it to be added to a contact without typing it by hand. On my Sprint Katana, when you clicked on the phone number in the call log, you had the choice to edit or append the number. On my Hero, when I press on the phone number, it calls it? Am I missing a step, or not holding the press long enough? I have searched and read as many as come up under a search, but I can't find any that address it from the call log issue.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Choose Which Contact Phone Number To Call?

Jan 26, 2010

I've been trying to find out how to choose which contact phone number to call. I'm talking about if I have a mobile number and home number programed to one name.

I'm sure this is an easy thing to do, I just can't figure it out right now.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Unknown Appear In Call History Instead Of Contact Number

Apr 10, 2010

I've been dealing with this for quite a while - I'm finally just getting fed up with it to the point where I'm actually doing something about it. I use GV exclusively probably half of the entries in my phone history appear as "unknown". Its also hit-or-miss if the contact's name appears when i dial out or when they're ringing in. Also, when me and another contact call each other back and forth several times, sometimes their info appears, sometimes they appear as "(unknown)" -- its baffling me.

Sprint HTC Hero :: People App Phone Number Formatting

Nov 17, 2009

I've noticed that in the People app, the phone numbers are formatted like this: (xxx) yyyzzzz but phone numbers that are used in message fields such as "Send Message" are formatted (xxx) yyy-zzzz. Is there any way to have the phone numbers formatted using the dash? Why, you ask? Because it's easier to read when you are looking up a phone number to give to someone; and I'm old, so don't laugh at me! GMail's contacts formats them all with a dash, but I can't find a way to make the Hero do so.

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?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Can't Port / Move Phone Number To Android?

Nov 12, 2009

Can't Port Number within the same carrier. Situation: I've been with Sprint since 1997. Long story short, I have a plan I don't want to give up: PCS Free & Clear Plan
$27.00 per month
700 Anytime Minutes
1000 SMS Text Messages
Unlimited Night & Weekend Minutes* (Starting at 7 p.m.)
Free Roaming
Free Mobile-to-Mobile
See blog post here:
Bourne to Blog: Negotiating with your Mobile Phone Carrier. I wanted to upgrade to an Android phone, but this would require a "data plan". Some time ago, I was told that since I wanted to keep my plan, I could add unlimited data for an additional $30/month and keep the plan. However, about a month ago, I emailed customer service wanting to do this with the Android phone. They told me can't do this with the Android phone, you'll have to switch to data plan (essentially losing my plan).
So, here's what I did: My dad got me an Android on his "Family Plan" along with my step-mom and step-sister. To add me onto his plan is just an additional $20 per month. So, this made the most economical sense (since I wasn't about to give up my old phone and plan).

Mar 4, 2010

I have turned off vibration in the settings but it still vibrated when phone/dial a number. Is there any way to turn this off as well? I liked it at first, but turning it off really speeds up the response time. For some reason it is still vibrating when I go to phone and start typing a number. The lag id horrible compared to typing with the vibrate off

Nov 14, 2010

Prior to switching ROMs back and forth, I was able to nandroid off of my phone with no issue. Now, I cannot and at first I found it slightly alarming, but then I brushed it off. However, I feel like something might be wrong with my phone? Help?

Also, recently (as in today). My phone has been sending messages to other people, randomly. I got a phone call from my mother but it popped up as a totally different number.

HTC Hero :: Send Contact Number By SMS

Jan 27, 2010

It's been asked before but never answered as far as I can see. want to send Contact A's phone number (and only the phone number, not the whole contact) to Contact B by SMS. If I go into People and press menu-> more->Send Contact, the hero attached a Vcard to an MMS. Which I don't want. Just the number. What's more, Vcard sending doesn't even work when sending to another Hero let alone to another type of phone.
Any tips? Handcent doesn't appear to do this either.

Android :: Getting Contact Name From Phone Number?

Dec 4, 2009

The semi-standard way of getting a contact name from a phone number is to use Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL and append the phone number, as in the following sample code. This works fine on Android 1.6, but not on 2.0 -- is there a way to perform this function that works in all versions of the Android API? private String getContactNameFromNumber(String number) {// define the columns I want the query to return String[] projection = new String[] { Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME, // encode the phone number and build the filter URI Uri contact Uri = Uri.withAppendedPath (Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL, Uri.encode(number)); // query timeCursor c = getContentResolver().query(contact Uri, projection, null,null, null);// if the query returns 1 or more results}

Android :: Looking Up Contact By Phone Number

Jul 29, 2010

I am getting contact details for a given phone number using the following code:

Uri uri = Uri.withAppendedPath(PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI, Uri.encode(phoneNum));
Cursor cursor = context.getContentResolver().query(uri,null,null,null,null);

There is a case though when the cursor contains 3 records with the same phone number and display name. Can you please suggest an explanation or possible reason for that?

Android :: Contact From Phone Number - Old Vs New URI?

Aug 5, 2010

I have an Android 2.1 device (HTC Incredible). My app, however, must be compatible with early (pre SDK 5) devices, so I am using the deprecated format of filter URI:

Uri contactUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL, Uri.encode(number));
Cursor C = context.getContentResolver().query(contactUri , null, null, null, null));


The number is of the form 15555551212. This fails to find the Contact, at least on my device. However, changing to the new (SDK 5 and later) ContactsContract format URI

Uri contactUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(ContactsContract.PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI, Uri.encode(number));
Cursor C = context.getContentResolver().query(contactUri , null, null, null, null));

results in success. Originally, the corresponding number in the Contact was in the format +1 555 555 5555, but I changed it to exactly match the input number 15555555555 and the old format URI still fails. In both cases, the new format URI succeeds. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why this is the case?

Android :: Lookup Corresponding Contact To A Phone Number?

Jul 6, 2009

What I'm trying to do, is to get the corresponding contact to a phone number. It works perfect if the number is stored in the contacts in the following format: +<country code><area code><number> But not all numbers are stored this way. Most are without the country code or with "00" instead of "+". Do I have to parse the number by myself and set up a corresponding WHERE clause for the query, or is there anything I can't find in the internet to get this one done by the framework?

Android :: Search Contact By Phone Number

Sep 14, 2010

In my app, user writes a phone number, and I want to find the contact name with that phone number? I usually search the contacts like this:Cursor cur = getContentResolver().query (ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI, null, null, null, null); But I do this to access all contacts. In this app I only want to get the contact name of the given phone number. How can I restrict the query? Or do I have to go trough all contacts and see if any has the given phone number? But I believe that this can be very slow this way.

HTC Desire :: Add Phone Number To Facebook Contact?

Jun 12, 2010

I just got my Desire a few days ago, and so far i am very pleased with it (coming from a Nokia N95 8GB). I do find the contact handling somewhat counter intuitive however. For example , i have some contacts from facebook for which i have no other contacts created, but i need to add additional information (in particular phone numbers). I do not seem to be able to add information to a facebook contact. Do i really need to manually create another contact, then manually give it the same name and then link it to the facebook profile in order to have a place to add the phone number?

Android :: Phone Number Contact Format

Apr 25, 2010

In Android I can get phone numbers of all the contacts without any problem. Tha problem is that for most users some numbers are stored as 'local' numbers, meaning that they dont have the country code included. For example, if the user lives in US and he has 2 contacts:

1) John - 555-123-1234 (local) (starting 1 not showing)

2) Jane - 44-123456787 (england phone number)

The question is: How do I get all the numbers in an international format, when some of the numbers doesnt include the country code?

Android :: Retrieve Contact Name From Phone Number

Jun 20, 2010

I would like to retrieve the name of a contact associated with an incoming telephone number. As I process the incoming number in the broascastreceiver having a String with the name of the incoming caller would help my project greatly. I would think this involves a query using the sql WHERE clause as a filter, but do I need to sort the contacts? An example or hint would be of great assistance.

Android :: Retrieve Contact Phone Number From URI

Jul 30, 2010

I am trying to get the contact's phone number after I have retrieved their ID number from the built-in activity. However, whenever I query the database using the cursor in my code below -- I get zero rows returned even though there is a mobile number for the contact I have selected. Can anyone point me in a better direction or show an example of how to get the contact's phone number AFTER getting their userID?

ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI);
