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?

Htc Incredible - Set Gmail Invites To Be Private By Default On Dinc

Is there a way to set gmail invites to be private by default? Google help says that if your calendar is set to private (mine is) then all invites will be private too. That is not the case though - when my husband receives an invite in outlook and he has to manually change it to private. So short of using my pc for all invites (where i can manually set them to private each time) is there a way to do this on the dinc?

Application That Let - Group My Contacts

Is there any application that will let me group my contacts? On my old palm e2, i could classify each contact, work, personal, business, whatever i wanted. Then i could view the type. I can't figure out how to do that on the g1.

And while i'm at it, my e2 also let me color code events on the calender. I notice that the g1's calendar does have a blue color for events, but i didn't pick it. Is there a way to change the color coding?

Htc Incredible No Default External Storage

The htc incredible is now available for pre order at verizon. Engadget has already done a review. They mention that there is a storage issue with a lot of apps because it does not come with an external sd card by default. It does have a lot of separate internal storage, but apps cannot use it. Does anyone have more info about this from a developer's point of view. What path will environment. Getexternalstoragedirectory() return and what is the correct way to get the path of the internal storage?

Any Way To Set Default Calendar

I've been using jorte, and like it, but i seem to have some across a deal-breaker. When entering an appointment from the phone, if you just click on "new event", key in the event, and press "done" it puts the event into "my calendar" by default. "My calendar" seems to be something stored only on the phone. It doesn't sync with google. To get the event into your google calendar you have to press "show details" and select the relevant calendar from the drop down list under "calendar. "The problem is

(A) it's very easy to forget to do this when quickly entering an appointment, meaning that your new event will be in the wrong calandar and will not sync;
(B) there is no way of going back into the event and telling which calendar it has been assigned to; and
(C) even if you realise that you've put the event in the wrong calendar there is no way of going back in and changing it to a different one. You just have to delete it (together with any details or repeat information) and start again from scratch.

This is driving me a bit mad, because i keep finding the odd event which is not coming up on my google calendar online for this reason, and i can't afford for this to happen, so i will need to drop jorte unless i can find a solution. Is my analysis above correct, or am i missing something? To solve this there needs to be a way of setting the calendar which new events get dumped to by default, and also a way of easily changing events from one calendar to another without deleting them.

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!

Htc Incredible - Hearing Noise Like Two Screws Tapping Together When Set Phone Down / Stop It

My phone is in my pocket often as i leave my desk at work; no need to leave my gem out in the open alone.

When i set the phone down on hard surfaces, i can hear a bit of a noise almost like two screws tapping together. What i think is, it may be the device that makes the phone vibrate.

My real question is if i can feel the phone hitting against my leg as i walk around, is that going to break anything overtime? Or did that create this rogue noise i hear when i set the phone down? Leaning towards paranoia, but wanted to see what i could get!

Htc Incredible - Unrevoked Forever Tool To Set Your Android Phone's Security Level To S-off

Just got released like 15 minutes ago. Anyone try it yet!?

Public:forever [rootwiki]

Unrevoked forever is a tool to set your android phone's security level to s-off. The security level is a flag stored on the radio; when the flag is s-off, the bootloader (hboot) will no longer check the signatures of firmware images before flashing them. This allows custom firmware images to be uploaded, including unsigned boot, recovery, splash1, and hboot images (as well as official images that have been modified).

Htc Incredible - Google Talk Icon On One Of My Screens

So i am a big google talk user (gchat) and i see that the program comes preloaded on the incredible. For one, how come this app is not available in the marketplace (i wanted to see if there was an update to install)? Also, what is the best way to switch back and forth between chats and other programs? I thought doing this on my old blackberry was pretty easy but have not discovered an efficient way of doing this. I just have the google talk icon on one of my screens that i have to keep clicking on every time i want to go back into chat. I know when you have a new google talk message you will get a notification at the top of the screen, but is that all i am going to get? It would be nice if the icon showed something, like changed a different color or had a number next to it indicating a message.

Htc Incredible - Google Talk Homescreen Icon

Is there anyway to have the google talk homescreen icon to show how many messages are received? It shows a little chat bubble in the notification bar but nothing on the icon.

For example, the htc mail icon has the number of emails received on the icon as well as on the notification bar.

I sometimes find myself looking for what app got the message and its bugging me.

Htc Incredible - Google Talk Is Counting As Texts

The last couple months i have gone over my texts by a couple hundred each time. I thought maybe i was sending a lot of normal texts. This last month i only sent 20 normal texts and a boatload of google talk messages because i thought they wouldn't count towards my limit.come to find out they do. I kept reading that it used data and not texts, guess thats not the case.
