Htc Incredible - Possible Incredible Facebook Contact Solution

There are many topics on the subject but i couldn't find where this option was as many of us with an incredible know, the facebook integration is cool but annoying in that it throws every facebook friend with a listed phone number within your dialer screen and other key contact locations. So here's a possible solution if someone can help me. On my friend's motorola droid, his facebook app has an option that will only sync facebook contacts with known phone contacts. It's listed under menu>settings>other settings (the incredible shows only 'helpful hints' under this same menu item, although it's version number is higher). This is awesome in that it gets rid of the zillions of people you don't want showing up in your dialer.

So, can you replace the incredible's facebook app with the moto droid's? I have it downloaded but can't install it since i can't remove the stock facebook apps that came on the incredible. Is it possible to use the moto droid facebook app instead?I didn't have much time on his droid so if i'm mistaken on any point then so be it. Just hoping for options.

Htc Incredible - Revert To Old Facebook App

I updated the standard facebook app, thinking it would give me the option to sync w contacts but it didn't. I'm thinking htc intentionally disabled that.

Anyway, with the new updated facebook, it now gives me errors when i try to drag in the facebook widget. Anyone know how i can revert to the old fb app?

Htc Incredible -setup Personal Contact Card / All Kinds Of Information To Send To Another Phone

So the di has this wonderful feature where you can setup a personal contact card and include all kinds of awesome information to send to another phone. Currently though, you can only send a contact card via bluetooth. I feel this feature is extremely limited and would -love- to see it expanded beyond it's current capability to incorporate more methods of sending contacts to other phones that may or may not be running android os.

This is exactly the reason i am posting though, to see if perhaps there is an app on the android market or elsewhere that extends this functionality and not only allows me to send my own contact card, but other contacts on my list as well. I noticed a feature within the contacts list itself that lets me send via other methods (vcard) but how compatible is this with other phones?

Htc Incredible - Htc Mail Memory Leak Solution

I slowly watched the memory usage for htc mail creeping up and up. I was up to over 80 megs, and the performance of my incredible was notably getting worse. I was looking and looking, and although i found a lot of other people having problems with htc mail, i never found a solution to it other than a hard reset.

So i deleted my hotmail account (left the gmail account alone). Instantly down to 15 megs. Reinstalled the account, reloaded my mail. Still only at 15 megs. So if you're getting the "low on memory" error, try removing all your email accounts except gmail, then re-adding them. Worked for me.

Htc Incredible - Can I Edit A "contact Type"

When you add a new contact it gives you the option to add the contact type (phone or google). Can u edit a "contact type" or even see what type it is?

The reason i ask is for some reason not all my contacts show up under "all" even though under view both google and phone are checked, and the contacts in question is someone i added, and belongs to the "friends" group. She shows up under that group, but not under all.

Incredible Facebook Notification In Notification Bar / Takes To Web Address That Won't Open

I have the facebook app on my incredible, and it works fine as far as i can tell. However, when i get a facebook notification in the notification bar at the top of the screen, it takes me to a web address that won't open, every time. I've tried a battery pull just for fun, but no better. I have no idea why a battery pull would help, but i figured i could cross it off the list. (Came from a storm)

I'm left going through my "profile" on my app to the mobile site, and then i can get messages. Any ideas about having the notification link work to the page it's trying to render?

Motorola Droid - Unlink One Contact From Facebook

I have quite a unique situation i can't figure out. I have an old college friend who is my friend on facebook; but i don't need or want her in my phone book. The problem is, she recently got married and now has the same name (first and last) as my mother! Now her contact is syncing with my mother (who is in my phone book, but not on facebook. ) For the rest of my contacts, syncing works great, and just as intended, but i'd really like to un-link those two contacts. Is this possible?

Samsung Nexus S - Linking Contact Card To Facebook

I was wondering how i can link my contact card to facebook. I called samsung and spoke to a clueless representative. I know this function can be done. I've seen this done on numerous android-powered devices. I was hoping that this would automatically be done when i registered my facebook account into my phone, but this did not happen. I'm tired of seeing the little android dude when i'm texting someone. I'd like my facebook photo to be shown.

Htc Incredible Issues With Gmail

Trying to figure some things out on my new phone here. I have the verizon htc incredible. The contact manager on my phone is simply called "people". I have successfully managed to get all my contacts moved over and looking pretty good - had to "link" several people so they would stop showing multiples.

I'm set up to sync with exchange and gmail. When i edit a contact, it prompts me to choose whether to edit the outlook version or the gmail version. What the *** is going on here? I assume if i link two contacts together, i now have one contact entry and it will sync that entry to any of my linked accounts. Is this not the case?

Also, when i enter a contact in from the phone, it defaults to "phone" as the type. This does not get sync'd to anything, apparently? I'm just a little confused as to how this whole thing is organized. Is my error trying to sync between outlook and gmail at the same time? Do i need to select one and just use it?

Htc Incredible - Sysmonitor App

Has anybody else found/used this app yet? Its free just give you a little icon that will display in your taskbar tray thing (top of the screen that can be dragged down when you get alerts and such). You can choose from battery level, cpu usage, ram free, sd mem. Free, or internal memory free. The only thing i've noticed from this that i'm not enough of a techie to know what it might mean is that a lot of the time the cpu usage will hover anywhere from 20-40% when the phone is just sitting on the homescreen with nothing on/running but touch input and the sysmonitor app itself. Either way, i think its a cool app to have because you can see your battery percentage on any screen instead of having a widget.
