Android :: ContactsContract - Contact Missing Constants From API?

Sep 30, 2010

I've been using the ContactsContract api for some time now and I've come across two "columns" listed in the API page for ContactsContract.Contacts that do not appear to actually be assessable.

CODE:.....

By my reading of the API these two values would seem to connect to the Structured Name (in DATA) used to construct the display name for the given contact. Having access to this directly from the contact table would be incredibly useful to me at the moment, but as far as I can tell they are not actually in the working api (I've tested against both 2.1 and 2.2).

The associated constants do not exist in the Contacts object, and attempting to access the fields directly (by using the lower case string versions I've seen in code dumps online) turns up with an sql error -- invalid column, as you might expect.

Has anyone had any better luck with accessing these? Are these actually in the API?

I did some more checking and here's some related values from RawContacts that are listed on the API but appear to not actually be in it: DISPLAY_NAME_ALTERNATIVE, DISPLAY_NAME_PRIMARY, DISPLAY_NAME_SOURCE, PHONETIC_NAME, PHONETIC_NAME_STYLE, SORT_KEY_ALTERNATIVE, and SORT_KEY_PRIMARY.

All of these appear to be features not yet in the API that are mistakenly not filtered out when the javadoc was released. If other folks are unable to access these features as well it might be worth filing a bug report over.

Android :: Frequently Used Text Contact Missing From Handcent

Nov 7, 2010

I've been using handcent for almost a year now. 2 weeks ago, right at it, one of my most frequently used contacts for texting disappeared from handcent. The text comes through on board messenger but wont cross over to handcent. Out of 90 or so contacts this is the only contact with that issue. The contact is an AT&T contact, all other AT&T contacts work fine. I've removed the contact, reset the phone with battery removed, made new contact and still the same. It's almost like the number/name is cursed. This "cursed contact" comes through handcent on my wife's phone just fine.

Apr 21, 2010

adding new contacts in address book and apply them in batch by using new ContactsContract API. I could not find a proper tutorial on this. I am able to add a single contact. But batch update fails with Unknown contacts being added. Currently I am looping through while loop while collecting info. of users to write, store it in the ArrayList and applying and ContentProviderResult[] result = getContentResolver().applyBatch(ContactsContract.AUTHORITY, op_list); But only one contact is updated with name and other are updated as unknown contacts. Please help with a sample code which adds the fields like name,nickname,mobile,title,email,skype id,work-country etc.

HTC Incredible :: Missing Contact In Facebook When Trying To Link

Jun 28, 2010

Searched through the forums, didn't see a similar topic discussed. Just happened a few days ago, where one of my contacts on my phone from Gmail that was linked to Facebook all of a sudden is unlinked. When I tried to relink to fix it, the contact doesn't appear on the list to link. Going into the Facebook app, the contact is listed there. Anyone run into this or have any idea how to fix? Tried a reset already, after backing up apps/messages.

HTC Desire :: Facebook Contact Sync - Icon Missing

Sep 14, 2010

I've noticed that one of my friends on their contact picture has lost the little Facebook icon overlay and that syncing with Facebook wont bring it back.

Their contact picture has been replaced by another blurry pixellated picture.

Further to this, I notice that the actual contact picture in Facebook for HTC Sense is borked and pixellated. Anyone seen anything like this before?

HTC EVO 4G :: Gmail Contact Missing While Showing Up On Desktop Contacts

Sep 12, 2010

could not locate an important phone number which I personally entered on her Gmail contacts on her desktop. I checked her 4G contacts (view contacts boxes are all checked) and that specific contact is still missing while showing up on her desktop contacts. Out of curiousity, we checked both of our phones. Just from A-C alone, she is missing 23 contacts and I am missing 41 contacts. The contacts are there on our desktop contacts, but not on the 4G. I feel guilty since I was the one who talked her into changing from Blackberry. Her Head Nurse warned that she will have no tolerance for screw ups due to android phones. Apparently, she has same issues before with one of her RNs.

General :: HTC Sense Facebook Contact Pictures Missing?

Feb 21, 2012

I have a problem with Facebook application (not Facebook for HTC Sense - I want to avoid using this one) and the way it syncs peoples' pictures in the contact list. The problem is that some of the pictures are missing. I know for sure these persons have profile pictures set, but for some reason my Facebook app doesn't sync them. I double checked the "Link" menu, it shows that the phone book entry is indeed linked with a facebook account. The picture dropdown list also shows an empty person outline next to "Facebook".

I'm using Virtuous Affinity ROM 2.05 on HTC T-Mobile G2.

I need to list the 'Display name' of all the contacts belonging to a single account.I am planning to use a cursor adapter for populating the list and hence would require the corresponding fields (Display name, Account info) to be fetched in a single content provider querry.Looking at the Contacts Database Structure a single table amoung Raw Contacts, Contacts and Data wont be able to provide these two parameters and hence a join is necessary.As far as i know join wont be possible to fetch the data from the content provider.

Motorola Droid X :: Want To Change Phone Contact To Google Contact

Jul 18, 2010

When adding new contacts to the droid x, it added it as both a goggle contact and phone contact. (i only have one goggle account setup). I went into contacts -> menu -> more -> settings. I am UNABLE to check/unchecked the "Phone Contacts" (it is always checked). The goggle one i am able to check/unchecked. WHY and HOW can i toggle the phone contact? Also, backup assistant only takes PHONE contacts and not GOOGLE contacts...while g mail contact sync only takes goggle contacts and NOT PHONE contacts. How can one change phone contact to goggle contact? (i have seen posts all over but no answers...and just replies saying "i have the same problem") I am trying NOT to have two (2) different types of contacts. PHONE and GOOGLE. I just want goggle contacts ( or phone contacts. so i can at least use verizon's backup assistant.

Samsung Captivate :: Message Contact List Shows Each Contact Twice

Sep 24, 2010

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.

Android :: Missing Sync On PC

Sep 18, 2010

I took a plunge this morning buying Missing Sync for Android on PC. It does not work. Loads of errors, hangs, if it connects at all.

I tried their support center, it would not allow me to register.

I tried their forum, it's security image does not appear, making it impossible to post.

Tried their Board e-mail, bounces back with error.

Tried their support@markspace.com, bounces back with error.

Has anybody used this successfully? Should I contact visa...?

Android :: Missing OS Packages

Jul 10, 2010

I've been trying to modify the native android applications downloaded from the android source repo at github. But I noticed that after creating Eclipse projects from some apps, like the Launcher, there are missing imports, variables that are not declared anywhere else, etc... After my initial research, I noticed that some of the libs that are native, are compiled at runtime and registered in the dalvik VM as java libs and by having done this the system finds these as already present libs, the same goes for the "phantom" variables. But I don't understand how does a developer open such a project in any java ide, and compile it. So what do Google developers use to work on android apps? I don't believe it's eclipse, since I am not sure you can make eclipse use runtime imports, and runtime variables. And I am almost certain that they do not write code in notepad.
