HTC Incredible : Need Gmail Contact Names / Facebook Synch

Jun 10, 2010

I thought I had read something about this before, but now I can't put my finger on it. Is the initial synch between Gmail contacts and Facebook using e-mail addresses or contact names? In other words, if I'm using only first names for some contacts will it find their Facebook profiles or will I have to change the contact names to full names? My Incredible is arriving today (can't wait) and just want to know if I need to update my contacts.

HTC Incredible : Need Gmail Contact Names / Facebook Synch


HTC Incredible :: Every Facebook / Gmail Contact Merged

Apr 30, 2010

Set up my Incredible yesterday.Everythings working well except one weird issue.It appears that it pooled ALL of the contacts exchange contacts, Facebook phone numbers/emails, and every single gmail address I've ever emailed before.When I compose a new text, and select the little person icon to find who to send it to, it brings up a list of at least 3,000 contacts.Everything from unsubscribe email addresses to craigslist to 5 different phone numbers listed for someone off Facebook.Is there anyway to prevent this or remove it? In "People" it's correct, only shows the contacts from my Exchange server and everything looks good. But going to compose a new text (or typing a new gmail email) it brings up EVERYTHING.

HTC EVO 4G : Synching Facebook Contact Names Failed

Jun 30, 2010

Ok, so, when I go to my contacts, I have a couple names like (ex.) Bob A. I decided to change it to my linked contact from Facebook so that it's Bob Apple. So I save every name and back out. When I turn off my phone later that night, than turn it on the next morning, the contacts have gone back to their original state (like Bob A.)

General :: Facebook Sync And Contact Names Conflicts In ICS

Jan 3, 2012

Some of my gmail contacts have different names than on their facebook accounts. For example, "Jacob Chan" might be "Jake C" on Facebook.

After facebook syncing on ICS, they now appear as two contacts in the People app. Is there a way to work around this, aside from changing my gmail contact name?

I'm on Pete Alfonso's Nexus S ROM and Ezekeel's Glados 2.6 CFS kernel.

HTC Desire :: Unreliable Synch / Wrong Names On Texts

Jul 1, 2010

I have had my HTC Desire for 3 or 4 weeks now and I am determined to like it. I'm stuck with it for 24 months so I have to!! However, synching with my outlook contacts and calendar seems to be a very hit and miss affair. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I am running Vista 32 bit on a Vaio laptop with outlook 2003 (I hope to move to google apps soon but it feels like a big job to do it so i need enough time to work it all out). I downloaded HTC synch from the web but that didn't work so I used the version on my phone and that seemed to work better! I am using HTC Sync, version: 2.0.28. I always start HTC Synch first and then connect the phone. i select the synch option on the phone, but it usually fails to connect at that point. If I then a wait a little, and if I am lucky, it seems to connect itself and the Application installer icon pops up on the HTC Synch screen. then i can try again to synch. And sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. This is a lot of messing about - i wish it would just work - is there anything i can do? Also, when i receive texts from kid's school or my bank, the phone seems to assign random names from my contacts list. How weird is that? Any ideas for a cure? I have also found that it can be extremely slow to load videos on youtube. at the weekend i was with someone who had a iphone on the same network in the same place and they had no problem. Grrrrr!! often when it fianlly gets the video and starts to play it it stops halfway through - data is obviously not coming through quickly enough. Is there anything i can do to help this. Finally I am very disappointed that it can't make phone calls as well as my old Nokia 6230. same place, same network, perfect on the old phone, dropping out and bad reception on the HTC. The old phone worked fine in the local supermarket, The HTC simply says NO NETWORK. Have i got a bad phone or is this typical?

HTC Droid Eris :: Gmail - Synch ?

Jan 5, 2010

I don't know if this has changed or not. I thought that synching use to work this way:

...I'd like for when I make a change on my Eris or my PC in Gmail for it to propagate to the OTHER...For example, if I get an email on the Eris regarding a purchase I have made, I would like to give it a label and archive it...and have that change reflected in my online account; and vice-versa.

I know I have gone thru and cleaned up my inbox online, but did not see any of those moves/ deletions (apparently not an issue) / changes reflect on my Eris.

HTC Incredible :: Delete A Single Facebook Contact

May 14, 2010

I set up HTC sync and Facebook and all that jazz. However, there are a few people in my Facebook Contacts list that I don't really want to have in my contacts list.

I don't dislike them to the point where I'd want to un-friend them on facebook, but I don't really want their number to be in my phone.

Does anybody know any way to delete a single facebook contact from your phone? Click and hold doesn't work, going to their "people" tab doesn't work, I can't figure it out...

HTC Incredible :: How To Update Facebook Contact Pictures?

Jul 1, 2010

I'm not sure if anyone has already figured this out but I just did it by accident a few minutes ago. If your facebook contact has changed their picture and you want to update it on your phone, go to People > Online Directory > Facebook > Click refresh. It updates everyones pictures so it may take a while if you have a lot of contacts.

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 Incredible :: Save As Gmail Or Phone Contact

Sep 9, 2010

I'm sure I'm overlooking something simple. At some point I had an option to save new contacts as a phone contact or a gmail contact. But I've lost that option. Now whenever I enter a new number in my phone I have to manually enter it into my gmail account as well. (Lets not even get into the pain in the butt Google Apps account which will NOT sync my contacts from my personal domain) What am I missing here? I've already lost one gals number that I really wanted to call when I did a factory reset and forgot to manually put it in gmail.

HTC Incredible :: Contact Pictures Revert To Facebook Instead Of Phone

Jun 10, 2010

I am using the People widget to display the Favorites group on one of my panels.

I figured out how to get the picture from the phone to be the one used for the contacts, but three of them keep reverting to the facebook pictures and I can't figure out why.

I found this thread: http://androidforums.com/support-troubleshooting-incredible/96176-android-contacts-revert-facebook-pictures-how-stop.html But there is no real answer there, and while the problem is similar, it isn't exactly the same.

HTC Incredible :: Google Account - Gmail Contact Import

Apr 28, 2010

I realize that the Incredible will bring in your Gmail contacts during phone setup so I have all of them currently organized in Gmail as Last Name First Name in the single Name field as Gmail currently doesn't have two separate fields for first and last name. Does the phone itself have fields for first and last name and if so does it make more sense to reorganize my Gmail contacts so the phone can recognize what is the first name and what is the last name?

HTC Incredible :: Can't See Contact Information On Composing Gmail Application

May 7, 2010

In the Gmail app on my Incredible, when composing a message, i start by addressing the email in the "To" field. If I want to send an email to "Jonathon Blackburn" i start typing "jonat" and a list of emails comes up like: Jonathon Blackburn <jonblack@ Jonathon Blackburn <jonathon@ But the rest of the contact info is cut off, so I do not know which email I am selecting and whether it is office of home, etc. Is there a way to change the font/setting so that it includes the entire email address and whether it is a work or home address?

HTC Incredible :: Using Facebook/Gmail Contacts And Linking

Apr 29, 2010

Is there any way to automatically sync all your facebook contacts with Gmail contacts? My Incredible syncs some of the contacts but not all of them. I know there is the option to "link" information on your contacts but I have a huge number that have not linked and it would be a paint to manually go through all of them and do this on a contact by contact basis.

HTC Incredible :: Facebook Contact Sync - Sms Backup - Automatic App Installation

Aug 19, 2010

I've rooted my Dinc and got skyraider 2.5.2 with full backup through titanium and nandroid.

Here are my questions.

1) Is there a way to transfer the exact status of my previous contact to my new rom? I've linked and synced all my contacts with facebook and stuffs and it looks like all those links have been disconnected. I don't want to link again manually.

2) Why does titanium not backup SMS? I've restored my titanium backup and none of my SMS got restored. Luckly I've used SMS Backup & Restore to backup, so that's not a problem, but I was wondering if I'm misssing something in titanium.

3) When I'm restoring apps with titanium, I have to keep giving permissions to install apps (clicking install button). I have around 80 apps, and I would much prefer if it's automatic without asking for my permission. Is there a way to do that?

Could someone kindly tell me what I have to do to get the names up please. I have been looking through the settings but cant see anything, do I need to make sure the stock messaging app is unticked first to get the names to appear?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Changes The Contact Names Itself

May 2, 2010

My X10 changes the contact names itself, e.g. it puts the name of a contact on another and thus creates a lot of confusion when a name shows on screen during an incoming call and when I pick it up, there is someone else on the other side.
