Motorola Droid - Gtalk Contacts Not Showing Up / Fix For It


This is an issue i have been experiencing since i got my phone; the contact list in gtalk isn't complete. As in it doesn't have all the contacts as listed in my gmail account ( as seen through the web interface ). The odd part is that these same contacts do appear in the address book, and i can initiate chats from within that interface, just not the gtalk application.

Has anyone seen this before?  Is there a fix?

Call My Gtalk And Skype Contacts Over 3g / Wifi

I just received mytouch and i'm trying to figure out how to call my gtalk and skype contacts over 3g or wifi. I come from using symbian and windows mobile phones, through them this was possible via fring, nimbuzz etc. To me its unbelievable that such a great operating system as android doesn't have these options enabled, or programs that will make it possible!
So just wondering if you guys figured out how to do so!
P. S. I also registered for google voice, but if i understood it right i still wont be able to call my contacts?!

Motorola Droid - Gtalk Signs Out When Screen Shuts Off / Stand By - Solution For This

Please tell me there is a way to prevent my gtalk account from singing off every time i lock my phone?

It seems every time my screen goes dark, or in "standby mode" google talk disconnects. I've been told my name comes online and offline all the time by others. I can't for the life of me figure this out. When i sign back in, i get bombarded with messages all at once.

Anyone have a similar issue? And apparently my phone has been in standby mode 62% of its life according to stats. Standby vs screen off. Whats the diff?

Motorola Cliq/motoblur - Contacts Won't Stay In Favorites List / Fix For This

I've watch closely and when my cliq syncs with my google contact list some of my favorites disappear. I added one right at the start and it stays, i added two from my corporate sync acct and they stay. If i add any from google they fall off the list at the first sync. It doesn't matter if i add them from the main google list, or the subgroup i have named friends.

Does anyone have a fix for this?

Htc Droid Eris - Pictures Associated With My Contacts Pixelated / Fix It

I just got my eris a few days ago. The ota push has already updated my phone. I'm in the process of loading everything (and then i'll search for a backup app to save it - ugghh, tedious). But i noticed that the pictures associated with my contacts are pixelated - despite them being in high resolution.

Is there a reason for this and/or a fix?

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.

Any Way To Hide Offline Gtalk Buddies / App To Do So

I apologize if there is a thread for this somewhere. I've searched the web, as well as these forums and the only answer i came up with is that there is no option to hide offline buddies in google talk. Is there an app or anything that can do it? Is this something slated for a future google talk release?

Motorola Droid - Contacts Got Deleted Randomly / What To Do

All my contacts got deleted randomly today. I tried to backup with lookout but when it said it was done, the only thing that changed was the quick dials on my home screen would call different contacts. But it seems like all the info is still on my phone since the names still pop up when i get texts.

Any idea what to do?

Motorola Droid - Contacts Won't Join / Why Is So

I am having a problem joining contacts when syncing with facebook. When i first synced, only a few of my contacts merged properly and i ended up with double listings for most everyone in my list. I then made sure that all of the individual names matched, first and last name, resynced and still had doubles of everyone even with the identical names. I then went through and attempted to "join" the contacts and only some would join. In fact most of the time when i select "join" i get the box telling me to select the contact i want to join with and nothing but a blank screen. I have tried to join using both of the identical contacts, resyncing, and just about everything else that i can think to do.

Is this just an issue in need of a software update or is there something else that i can try?

Motorola Droid 2 - Not All Exchange Contacts Are Syncing Even With Categories Removed

I have removed categories hoping that it will fix the problem with syncing exchange contacts.

At the moment my outook shows 1, 114 contacts. However when i click phone icon on my droid i see only 732 phone contacts.

I know i have all the settings correctly but i cannot get it to work.

Motorola Droid 2 - Upgraded To 2.2.20 But Exchange Contacts Still Not Fully Syncing

I upgraded the phone to the 2. 2. 20 version, wiped the device clean, and then added my exchange back in. Only 149 of my 884 contacts ever synced (after days of giving it ample opportunity). I went into my outlook, added a "temp" category to all my contacts, and allowed them to sync again. That got me to 719. There doesn't seem to be anything that i can do to get the rest of my contacts to sync at this point. I've tried editing them again, but no dice.

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 - Contacts Automatically Bring Up On Phone / Shortcut This Function

Been enjoying the android for almost a month with one exception. If i want to call my aunt geraldine for instance on virtually every other phone i've ever owned i can type 437 which corresponds to "ger" on a 12-digit telephone pad. I can then select her name from a drop down list and the phone calls her. The drop down list will include anyone whose name starts with g, h, or i then d, e, or f and finally p, q, r, or s. It will also include anyone whose number has a 437 in it.

I can get the same effect if after activating the phone interface i press the "search" button but then i have to use the small qwerty keyboard. Is there anyway to shortcut this function to work like a normal cell phone?
