Htc Evo 4g - Google Contacts Snyc Fails / Fix It


I've had my evo since the release date and have been able to sync my email, calendar and contacts from my gmail account with no problems since day one. But yesterday i noticed that my phone had the sync symbol in the notification banner all day and burning up my battery. I finally isolated it to my gmail contact sync failing and constantly trying to sync. The error message is " sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly. "

This problem has been going on for 12 hours now and i can't find anything that would explain why the smyc failure is occurring. I've looked for a setting that may account for the problem on both the phone and my gmail account and have found nothing.

Any ideas on what the problem is or what actions to take to fix it? Now i have to manually sync the account and cancel sync when it starts looping on the contacts sync!

Phone Contacts Not Showing In Google Contacts

Just bought a vibrant about a week ago and noticed that my phone contacts are not syncing up to google.contacts sync down to the phone, but contacts i created (or had) in the phone's internal memory do not go up to google.

The touchwiz contact app is a total piece of **** (and the only thing i don't like about this phone which is awesome in every other way).google contacts don't sync down in their former groups and i don't see any way to add custom ring-tones or pictures if they are google contacts.

Been on with t-mobile about this, and all they said was reset my phone, which i did to no avail.

Am i the only one having this problem?

Htc Hero - Delete Google Contacts Both Ways

My hero did sync "all" my google contacts. Also every one i've ever sent an email to.

So, i found out i can sync only one group. Therefore i made a group for the contacts that i want on my phone.

But, how do i delete the contacts already one the phone that i don want. Without deleting them on my google contact as soon as i sync?

Htc Desire - Google Went Totally Down Would My Contacts Still Be Available On Phone

Had an iphone and a blackberry, so the desire is my first htc/android phone. Noticed the today that all my contacts are on my contacts on gmail, i never put them there, so obviously the phone syncs up to google and managed to get calendars running as well, great. Was curious to know though; this is probably i really ignorant question, but, if say google went totally down would my contacts still be available on my phone, you know, once they are on my phone, are they there to stay? So, if i scrubbed my phone and got the contacts from google again.

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.

Htc Incredible - Set A Default Group Like "my Contacts" (on Google)

I spent a nice amount of time on google sorting my contacts by groups so it's neat and being i dont have a landline i have numbers in there that i dont ever call but i need to kepp them. And i know smart dial searches everyone if they are in a group or not.

My question is: is there a way to set a default group like "my contacts" (on google) when you go into your contacts insteal of "all contacts" (on the incredible)?

On google all the people who are in my contacts just fall under "all" even google considers it a "group"

Or maybe just put all of them in a new group and set it to default to that group?

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.
