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 Hero - Make All Contacts Say Google By Default

In my people app, all my contacts have the word 'phone' on the right hand side of the name bar, except recently added contacts which says 'google' instead.

My question is, how do i make all contacts say google by default? This is so i can sync them to google i guess.

Htc Hero - Mms Message Crashed My Phone / More Effective Ways To Handle It

After using my hero for a bit over a month, i've had my first run in with a serious problem. I received a mms text message, and every time i tried viewing the messages page (using the default messaging program) for that contact, i would get a force close error for com.android. Mms.

After trying a few more times, rebooting the phone, etc, i decided to try handcent sms. Fortunately, handcent did not crash when i viewed that contacts messages, but it also couldn't read the message stating something like "handcent sms is unable to read this message. " Oddly though, i was able to use the save mms option not only to see the image, but successfully save it as well. I was happy about this, but when i tried to delete the message so that i could continue to use the default messaging program (i like the widget, sorry), it could not delete the message.

The only way i could rectify the problem was by deleting the entire messaging thread with that contact.

Now, this has only happened once so far, and i have yet to try to reproduce it; nonetheless, it's a pressing issue i'd like more information on. Has anyone else had this happen? Are there any more effective ways to handle it other than deleting the entire contact thread?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Syncing Contacts - Does It Work Both Ways?

I have made a few changes to my contacts' details over the last couple of days, both online and on my phone (x10a). If i sync the contacts, will the online stuff over-ride the changes i've made in the phone, or will the phone take priority?  I'd like it to give me a choice of which changes to keep. If it uses the details i have most recently changed, that would be ideal, but i don't really want to try it until i know what will happen.

Htc Hero - How Do I Delete Apps?

1. I traded a unlocked cliq for this unlocked hero, was that a good or bad trade technically speaking? Personally it was good for me because i didn't like the bulkiness of the cliq and love the hero's slinderness.

2. How do i delete apps i didn't download from the market, like i have a app called footprints so i can't go to my downloads to delete, i can't open it and hit menu and delete, and if i hold my finger on it and drag to remove it still stays on my list.

3. The thing i liked about the cliq is text msg's are like bubbles in the convo but the hero is just separated by lines, anyway to make it bubbles on the hero?

4. And lastly , not on the myspace app but when you actually go to myspace.com it does have the option to click the im part and for a brief moment shows friends to im but after like 2 seconds it says temporarily unavailable, so does that mean the im doesn't work period on this phone or there's just something you have to do to enable it to work?

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?

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 - 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!

Delete All My Contacts Without Resetting Whole Phone

I want to erase all the contacts on my phone so i can resync from gmail. My new phone is the htc incredible which i got last week, and the old phone was a blackberry pearl which also sync'd contacts to gmail. Problem is i started doing all the linking on the phone, then i realized gmail had the ability to merge contacts. Now i have a mess and i want to delete all my contacts and resync with gmail. I even backed them up onto the sd card in case of an issue.

Anyone know how i can erase all my contacts without resetting the whole phone?

Motorola Cliq/motoblur - How To Mass Delete Contacts

Is there a way to delete all of the contacts i pulled over into my cliq without killing all of the apps etc i added (i.e.games, news widgets etc)?  Somehow i wound up with countless "unknown" contacts in my contact list. Probably related to how i fed my bberry's . Csv file into google contacts and then into the cliq. The excel spread sheet looked great - but i obviously (think) i missed something.

Htc Hero - Syncing Contacts With Exchange

I want to sync contacts. The days of "this data is exclusively on my phone" and "this data is exclusively in my e-mail" is over for me. But there is still a difference between what is useful to me on a super-portable device (handset) used not least for calling, texting and on-the-fly data checks, and a less portable device (laptop) used not least for writing and overview. My contacts contain many kinds of data, multiple phone numbers, addresses, b'days, notes and stuff.

The following is my findings:
- Android seems to think that syncing contacts with exchange is bad. Maybe it's a google vs.microsoft thing. I don't know. Can't make it work for contacts unless using a third party client.
- When syncing contacts with google i can only sync all my gmail contacts or none.

My dilemma is this: i can't sync with either platform without a mess!

In the blue corner: i have in my outlook exchange my telephone contacts. This is because my previous phone was winmo, not because i love outlook.

Syncing: either via a third party client (which has yet to work for me) or i can stuff them in a csv-file and put them on my handset - but then i can't sync them and every subsequent update will only exist on the handset.

In the red corner: i have in my gmail account a huge mess of e-mail receipients. Syncing between handset and google is hella easy. But many, many of the gmail contacts i very seldom use, and only for e-mailing.

To sum up rhetorically: am i the only one to think that my handset contact list should consist of some of my gmail contacts (e.g. Those with a phone number attached to them) rather than all of them?

I think i need a separate site: contacts.google.com where i can decide what contacts i want to share between which platforms, sites and clients.

I want to leave exchange behind. I want to sync with google. Not one-off import from google, but sync. How do i not get every last person i ever sent an e-mail to clogging up my handset's phonebook?

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?
