Motorola Droid :: Multiple Phone Numbers For Same Person

Jan 23, 2010

I have several contacts in my phone where I have multiple phone numbers but the location does not always match up with Google choices (MOBILE, WORK, HOME etc) Or in the case of a store like Costco, a different number for each department - Main, Pizza, Pharmacy etc. On my Palm I just used to put initials next to the number to remind me which was which, but that does not work on the Droid - it would not call the number with extra letters. Other than putting the information in my notes, has anyone found a work around? Ideally, I would like to change the words, WORK, HOME, MOBILE, etc to better reflect the ownership and location of that particular number. But that seems highly unlikely since it's connected to Google Contacts. Just wondering how others handle multiple numbers besides a totally different entry, or by adding the info in notes.

Android :: Want Multiple Gv Numbers To 1 Phone

Jun 1, 2010

I just posted this in another thread, and then realized that it was actually located in the Sam sung Moment Sub-Forum. So, I am posting it here for more universal viewing and input. Here's a rough explanation of my situation: I'm a leader in a large PS3 gaming community (4-500 active members) - go ahead and call me a dork. With all the things I do there, I occasionally have to give my number to members. I try to stick to msn/skype/google chat. However, that does not always work out. I have many separate G mail accounts for dispersing to different people; specifically, I have one designated as my gaming account. So, I would like to associate my gaming g mail with a specific GV Number. Knowing all that, if I were able to obtain an additional G V invite for that account (I do not currently have one and I probably sound selfish), would it be possible to have 2 different accounts going to the same phone?

HTC 4G :: Caller ID On EVO Not Working Under Multiple Phone Numbers / Solution To This?

Jul 15, 2010

I have a new EVO, and have some issues with the contacts. I transfered my contact from outlook to Evo. In some contacts I have phone numbers that have different people's name at the end of the phone no. under the same contact. i.e. in contact of my friend named Josh I would have his wife's number as well, therefore under mobile phone I would have one number which will have josh at the end of the number, and other number will have his wife's name at the end. When I receive a phone call from Josh, my phone will not bring up his name in called ID, it will just list the phone no. When I had a windows mobile phone it always listed the name. somehow android will not do it. Does anyone have solution to this?

Motorola Milestone :: Multiple Numbers For Contact - Unable To Select While Messaging

May 31, 2010

I have couple of contacts which have multiple numbers so I added all of those under a single name Now, when I try to message those names, starting from "new message", somehow typing the names in "To" bar does not thrown those names. Instead, it shows some weird number (e.g. 2229 etc) when typing those names Net result, the contacts are not accessible from messaging application. Now I need to go to the contacts to text them.

HTC Droid Eris :: Multiple Numbers For Contact

Mar 1, 2010

When I bring up the list of contacts in the Phone app (not the People app) it shows left and right arrows. However, they don't do anything.So if I want to use a different number for a contact (ie home vs cell) I have to actually hit the Rolodex icon and then select the number.I n every other phone I've had one could always select which number to call. Of course there is always the default number chosen when first setting up the contact.So how does one do this from the list in the phone app?

Android : Multiple Person Chat App

May 14, 2010

Every morning at 7:45 my friends and I "have coffee" together on line. We use MSN live. I have yet to find a chat app that will allow me to have ALL of my friends in the same window. Everything I have found only allows one person per window . . .any ideas?

If I was organized I would tell you which ones I have tried but haven't kept track . . .because I gave up - now am back at it again!

Just dawned on me - if my friends are already in msn chat- I need an app that they can invite me into that conversation - have to have msn chat? Because that will only let me have one person at a time.

Android :: Send Multiple Texts To Same Person

Feb 13, 2010

me and many of my mates have unlimited texts on our contracts and we like playing jokes on each other where we send loads of texts at the same time to 1 person. so for instance if they dont come out for drinks then they get sent loads of texts. This is not so easy on the Hero so was wondering if an application exists that can send 1 or 2 contacts loads of messages at once?

General :: Saving Multiple Drafts To Same Person?

Dec 31, 2012

There's something I'd like to do on my samsung galaxy note that I was able to do on my Symbian-based device in the past, but I can't figure out how to do it under Android.

I'd like to save multiple SMS drafts per recipient. However, my Galaxy note 2 only seems to permit me to save one SMS draft per recipient, with each subsequent draft overwriting the previous draft for that same recipient.

Here's why I'd like to have this capability:

If I want to type a long SMS to someone (more than 160 characters), what I like to do is split the message at logical places such as after commas, sentence endings, etc. I would do this by getting close to the end of a given SMS message and then stopping it at the point that I choose, saving it as a draft, and then continuing my text in a new SMS starting at the beginning of the next sentence, phrase, etc. Then, once the set of drafts is completed, I will first proofread and make corrections in the entire group of drafts, and only then will I manually send them off, one after the other.

Yes, I know I can type a long message and the SMS app will automatically split it into pieces after 160 characters, but that often splits words or breaks sentences and phrases in places that I don't want them broken.

Here's how I try to accomplish this on my G1:

Invoke the Messaging app.
Select New Message.
Select recipient.
Compose first SMS.
Select the Back key (draft 1 gets saved).
Select New Message.
Select same recipient as before.
Compose second SMS.
Select the Back key (draft 2 gets saved).

However, at this point, draft 1 has been overwritten by draft 2. In other words, only draft 2 remains.

Any way for me to accomplish what I want (or at least something similar) on my samsung galaxy note 2?

Motorola Droid :: Phone Numbers Not Copied Over Correctly?

Nov 29, 2009

So, as of today I have a Motorola Droid coming up for my old Nokia phone. I had BestBuy set me up with the Droid, but when they tried to copy over my contacts to the Droid, they said it failed 3 times and just wouldn't go. They said they COULD get the contacts off of my old phone, but it didn't seem to go over to the new phone for some reason.

Well, I called a number that I knew was in the contacts of my old phone just to test the phone to make sure the phone itself was working when I got home, and when I hung up the call I noticed that it actually showed the name of the person (not their actual name, but the nick-name that I gave them in my old phone) and also showed me the alternate phone number to contacts them with (their cell number). Sooo... it looks like SOMETHING was transfered to my phone, but when I go into "contacts" there is nothing listed. Even when I view the call log, it doesn't show their name anymore, only when I first hung up the call did it show me their name.

Is there a secondary contact list somewhere that they could possibly have been copied over to, and not the main contacts section? I'd really love to get all these phone numbers in there with out having to do it manually.

Motorola Droid X :: How To Use Extended Phone Numbers In Address Book

Sep 28, 2010

I just got a new Droid X and can't seem to figure out how to use extended phone numbers in my address book. By extended numbers I mean ones where I have inserted a "w" between the number and say a password that allows me to continue into my voice mail once it has been answered (ex. 123-456-7890 w 1234). When I try to use one of these numbers, I get a message from Verizon saying the number cant be dialed. Apparently the Droid is not pausing where it should.

Motorola Droid X :: Contact List Customization - Show Only Added Phone Numbers

Sep 12, 2010

I am still in the process of learning and customizing this phone so there may be a famous app that takes care of this but I did a search and found nothing. I am not a big fan of how the contact list shows friends from facebook/gmail/Phone. I only want it to show contacts that I have personally added on my phone. Is there a way I can arrange this. I have it to where it remembers phone contacts only when I hit contacts but as soon as restart, it goes right back to all contacts. It also comes up when I try to text someone or in the contact section of the dialer. I just dont like this. I don't mind that they are there, persay, but I don't want it to be default all the time. Is there a way to change this?

How do you choose/cycle through your contact's different phone numbers while on the phone screen. I know when i had the Hero I would just use the scroll bar and roll it right/left to go through the contact's other numbers.

KitKat 4.4 :: Contacts With Multiple Numbers

Apr 12, 2014

Many of my contacts have multiple phone numbers. When I receive a text from someone is there any way to differentiate which one they are texting from? For example, I usually send texts to my wife from my mobile, but sometimes I will send them from my tablet through google voice, which has a different phone number. She added my Google Voice number to my contact so she will recognize it. Both numbers show up as a different thread and if she responds it will go to the correct device. The problem is that she will open up her text app and pick my thread out of the list, but there's no way to tell which device she is selecting, so she will send texts to my tablet instead of my phone and I won't get it. I told her to create a completely different contact for the Google Voice number so she will know the difference. This works, but she doesn't want two separate contacts for me. It is kind of annoying that the contacts allows you to enter multiple numbers for the same person but doesn't differentiate which one is being used. Is there any way to get the text app to show which number the text is coming from on contacts with multiple numbers?

HTC Desire :: Contacts Multiple Mobile Numbers

May 28, 2010

I don't understand. In symbian it was possible to add more than one "mobile" number, and even with a custom label. In android i can't do that. I have friends that use 2 or 3 mobiles, for work, personal use etc, that besides the work number from the location.

Is there a workaround or a program i can use? I don't want my contacts staying on the gmail servers.
I guess the question is, how can i modify the labels? there's got to be a way...

If i use the "linked" option, when i view the contact details it just shows me 3 different numbers, it doesn't show me the linked contact's name so i can't now wich number i want to call: work, personal etc.

Custom labels would have been genius. I could add to Andy for example:
1. mobile xxx
2. mobile work xxx
3. boss xxx

And when he would call me from one of this numbers, it would have been nice to look like this:
Andy mobile xxx or Andy mobile work xxx.

HTC Desire :: Copying Contacts From SIM - Multiple Numbers Per Contact

Jul 13, 2010

I've just got my Desire (loving it already!) and have copied over my contacts from my SIM to Google. On both my SIM view, and when copied over, however, only 1 number is showing per contact when for some of my contacts I have 2 numbers (e.g. home and mobile). These showed up as SIM contacts on my old phone (Nokia) and have definitely not been left behind so they must be on the SIM somewhere. Anyone know how to access these on the Desire and copy them over?

HTC Desire :: Outlook Contact W/multiple Numbers Sync

Sep 3, 2010

I am currently a newbie in the andriod market, jumped over from N900 to this phone hoping it would be easy but doesn't look like.

I tried to sync my Outlook contacts to the new HTC Desire, using HTC sync, (running Android 2.2) and it copied over the contact but only with their primary numbers and not all the numbers, emails or addresses.

I haven't tried anything else yet but surely I won't be the only one with this teething issue, can some of you guys give me an updates on this?
