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.

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 Magic - Can I Totally Block Off Data Usage Through Just Phone Itself

I have one question thats really been bugging me because i can't seem to find it any where over the internet. My question is, can i totally block off data usage through just the phone itself? Is there any possible solutions? I want this phone, but just to have the wifi capability, i do not want any expensive data charges. If this phone is not possible to do so, i know some are, but i do not know which. How about the htc touch diamond? Or any other phones you guys possibly know of that can disable the data function.

Htc Desire - Phone Not Pulling Contacts To Call History / Solution For This

Am a newbie to htc desire and phone seems to have a number of bugs. I've just returned back after os trip and phone is now not pulling my contacts to my call history or in messages. However old texts have a contact assigned and if i go via people directly it showed their call history. But not in main phone view - all numbers are coming up as unknown, and when i try and pull a contact to send a text to it is only pulling from gmail contacts. I've changed nothing and this only seemed to have happened once i landed back home. I didn't have international data roaming on only phone roaming and it worked fine overseas.

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 - 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!

Htc Desire - Exchange Activesync Contacts

I use activesync to synchronize my contacts between my exchange server 2010 and my htc desire (2. 2). Quite a few of my contacts just have a company name but no first/last name (like hotels, banks, etc).

When synchronizing, first and last names get added to these contacts, e.g. Having a contact with company name "adobe systems incorporated" will add "adobe" as first name and "incorporated" as last name.

Having far more than 1'000 contacts, whereof an unknown number gets messed up is rather annoying.

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?
