Motorola Droid X - Manually Force Sync For Facebook Contacts


Is there a way to force the sync for facebook contacts? In accounts, the only thing there is the user/password. I can't find anyway to manually force the sync. Is there also a way to clear out the cache, just in case the phone thinks it downloaded the info, but for whatever reason wants to hide it.

I have an issue with my wife's phone. Not all contacts being downloaded from facebook. Most come in fine, but some don't.

Worked fine before i did a factory reset on her phone, now a handful of her 2000+ "friends" won't download.

Motorola Droid - Facebook Sync And Multiple Show Profile

I have both gmail sync and facebook sync and for the most part it works great. One thing that annoys me is when i got on some of my contacts in the address book, i notice that there are like 5 links to their facebook profile underneath their phone number and email. They all link to the same profile. Is there any reason this is happening?

Htc Evo 4g - Email - Manually Sync All Mails With Click Of Just One Button

#1 - im coming from iphone email setup where there is only one mail icon to use. Within that one mail icon, i can include all of my email accounts including pop3, imap, yahoo, gmail and hotmail accounts. When a new email comes into any of the accounts, a notification badge pops up on my screen (lets say 4 emails). I click the mail icon and all of my email accts are listed along with how many new emails are in each of the accounts. Screen might look like this:

Abcd@pop3.com -1
Abcd@yahoo.com-1
Abcd@hotmail.com -1
Abcd@gmail.com -1
Xyzd@yahoo.com -0

As far as i can tell on evo, so far, i have installed the mail, gmail, yahoo and hotmail apps. I have 4 different email icons on my screen and i have to click through each of them to check the mails under these different email servers. Isn't there a way to combine all into just one email icon and work it like i did on the iphone?

#2 - is there a way to manually sync all of my mails with click of just one button? I think each mail accounts can be set with various auto settings individually. But if i just want to download emails manually , all at once, whenever i choose, is there a way to do this with just one click?

Contacts-based App Force-closing On Droid - Unable To Repro / Fix It

I'm having problems with my application on droid phones. I am unable to reproduce the problems in the emulator. A co-worker of mine with a droid also has no issues running my app. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

My application is called dialify. It's open source; you can find the code here: http://code.google.com/p/dialify/source/browse/#svn/trunk/dialify/src.

My app queries the contacts db to display a list of contacts. The user can select contacts to turn them into notifications that can be dialed/ texted.

Droid users reported 2 problems:

1) contacts not appearing 2) app force-closes when they begin to scroll through the contacts list

My app creates a cursor over the contacts db to display contacts. I realized problem #1 was due to using the api level 5 method of access which only shows contacts for the master account. I fixed this, but the force-close issue remains.

Unfortunately, i am unable to replicate a force-close in the emulator. I thought maybe it was the number of contacts and created about 200 of them, to no avail. It's been happening to users who use exchange and users who do not, so i haven't tried getting exchange contacts into the emulator.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Contacts Crashed - Messaging Service Force Closes / Fix It

A few days ago i wanted to add extra family members under favorite contacts, so it would be quicker and easier when i need to contact them. Anyways, i pressed add, it said please wait and then came the dreaded message "sorry! The process android. Process. Acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again"

Iv closed it and reopened it countless times, with the message appearing time and time again. Iv also restarted the phone many times. Luckily the contacts i need to call, i text regularly, so i open up their message, and call from there.

But sometimes the messaging service force closes, or id like to call a contact who i haven't spoken to or text in a while, and need access to contacts , i did download log collector.

How To Sync Phone Contacts To Google?

While using the android os for a couple of months, i found one thing that seems to not working very great with my htc hero. I have imported my contacts from my addressbook (mac) to google mail. From there i set up a sync with my hero. So all contacts are copied/synced nicely to my hero.

But in time i also added new contacts in my phone, however they appear only to be in the phone memory and will not be synced to google mail. When i add a contact my hero only give me the option to store in in the phone- or sim-memory and it does not sync it to google mail/contacts. So in my contacts list you see behind a lot of names google and a few contacts (i personally added) names phone.

How can i add the functionality to store my 'internal' contacts to google mail automatically? Because i like the way to keep it in sync so i always have a backup of my contacts and also to assign e-mail adresses to my contacts.

Htc Evo 4g - Sync Only My Contacts

I have a vanilla 2. 2 updated evo. I want to sync only "my contacts" from my single gmail account. I have already removed the "show all contacts" from the view menu. Instead of having the "my contacts" option in the view menu it only shows "google" and that option subsequently corresponds "all contacts" in the gmail interface and loads all of the gmail suggested contacts. This was not like this on 2. 1 and it worked perfectly.

Also, i have already filtered the list with "show only those with phone numbers" but this does not stop the auto-fill feature in the email interface.

Anyone have an idea? I have spent considerable time looking for a solution and it would seem even rolling back to 2. 1 is not an option.

I forgot to mention that i have already reset the phone to factory defaults twice so it's indeed as vanilla as it gets.

Samsung Captivate - Exchange Activesync - Contacts And Calender Do Not Sync

Have been a longtime windowsmobile user. The captivate has a menu to synchronize with exchange including mail, contacts and calenders. I got mail to work, but contacts and calender do not sync. I would assume it is officially supported since it is in the menu. Has anybody else got it to work, meaning can you pull contacts and calender from your exchange account down to your phone?

Motorola Droid - App That Troubleshoots / Provides Information When Certain Apps Force Close?

Is there some type of app that troubleshoots or provides info when certain apps force close. Like an error report. I've had my camera app force close on me where i needed to restart my phone to make it work again. It happens sometimes with my dolphin browser. Normally when this happens i blame it on the rom or the kernal, so i immediately change the kernal or flash a new rom. I was hoping if i knew exactly why certain apps force close, i would be able to fix the specific problem rather than blaming the rom or kernal.

Htc Magic - Exchange Activesync - Wirelessly Sync Emails Contacts Tasks And Calendar Entries With Outlook

I have the rogers branded version of the magic and i was thinking about setting up a hosted exchange account. Can anyone comment on how well or how poorly exchange accounts work with the magic? I just want to be able to easily and wirelessly sync my emails, contacts, tasks, and calendar entries with outlook.

I have been using many different nokia phones over the last couple of years and i really liked that i could just enter the server details and within a few minutes of starting a new phone i could have all of my pim info loaded. Is there an option to only sync every 15min, or 30 min if i am trying to save battery life?
