Android :: Set A Default Contact Number - How To Undo

Jan 10, 2010

So, I selected "remember this" when I was sending a text to a contact, because it was the mobile number. Turns out, that set the number as "default" for the contact and now I no longer get to choose which number to use when calling. How can I got back to not having a "default" number?

Motorola Droid X :: Undo Email Default Selection

Jul 17, 2010

I mistakenly selected one of two email accounts on my X -- as being the "Default"

This was a mistake, as I really should have kept the setting dynamic -- so I could chose to send from either account.

Now I can't undo that default setting -- nor can I even switch the default to the other email account.

Here's how I got to the menu in question:

GUI Messaging Icon > Left Menu Button > Messaging Settings > Email > Default Email Account

Anyone know how I can undo this default setting -- and put myself back in the position of being able to select which account to use dynamically?

Android :: Want To Add Number To Contact On 2.0

Feb 5, 2010

Im trying to add a phone number to an already existing contact on a Droid-phone. Doing it at the same time as I create a contact is trivial, as the backreference I supply simply is 0 when creating a ContentProviderOperation. But trying to find the backreference through querying for a display name like this does not work: The big challenge is a huge lack of good documentation. I would be very satisfied to just get my hands on some working copypasta to study. Code...

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 :: Default Number Of Views Constructed For A BaseAdapter?

Jun 26, 2009

I've tried to describe this problem a few times, but I'll try again.I have a thread (not spawned from the adapter) which updates items in a List that a BaseAdapter child uses to populate its view. I am not adding things in the List from the thread, just modifying content. In any case, I have 6 rows visible at first on the screen. The thread pulls data from the network and updates them in 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 order. However, when 0 is updated, 5 mirrors its data on the screen briefly, then 1 is updated, 4 mirrors it, 3 is updated, then 4 is reloaded correctly, then 5, then 6. I am using the view holder/ convertView pattern correctly, as far as I can tell.How many views are created by default for an adapter? My guess is 3 based on what I see. Then, when getView() gets to index 4, 5, or 6, it correctly creates more Views and populates the right data. Anyone ever seen anything like this?

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.

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 :: Lookup Contact Name Of Existing Phone Number

Nov 14, 2010

I'm using a Android Wildfire and I used the following code to lookup the contact name of an existing phone number.

private String getContactNameFromNumber(String number) { String[] projection = new String[] { Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME, Contacts.Phones.NUMBER };
Uri contactUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL, Uri.encode(number));
Log.d(TAG, contactUri.toString());
// query time
Cursor c = context.getContentResolver().query(contactUri, projection, null, null, null);
// if the query returns 1 or more results
// return the first result
if (c.moveToFirst()) {
String name = c.getString(c.getColumnIndex(Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME));
Log.d(TAG, name);
return name;
}

// return null if no match was found return null;
}

I am unable to resolve the contact name. The logcat output shows the following
11-14 13:45:35.879: DEBUG/Test(3342): content://contacts/phones/filter/%2B919773653345

Android :: Unable To Update Contact Phone Number

Feb 23, 2009

I am currently unable to update an existing contact record's phone number. I am able to insert a new phone number to an existing contact record but unable to delete or modify existing phone number records of a contact. Is there a way to either: - delete an existing phone number from a contact record. or - update an existing phone number of a contact record.

The sample code is as shown below:
To delete existing phone numbers of a contact record: row = getContentResolver().delete(ContentUris.withAppendedId (Phones.CONTENT_URI, uid),null,null);
Log.v(TAG,"row =" + row);

The row value is always 0 even if phone numbers are present. Thus, the deletion does not take place. To update a phone number:
Uri PersonUri = ContentUris.withAppendedId(People.CONTENT_URI, uid);
Uri PhoneUri = Uri.withAppendedPath (PersonUri,People.Phones.CONTENT_DIRECTORY);
ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put(Phones.NUMBER,"1234567890");
values.put(Phones.TYPE,1);
row = getContentResolver().update(PhoneUri,values, null, null);

This throws a unsupported Operation exception.
