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?

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 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.

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 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 - 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?

Search Contacts By Phone Number

I want to search my contacts by phone number. Why? Because i got my bill and there are some numbers i don't recognize - but they may already be in my contacts list. For reference, this is on a motorola droid, but i suspect the same solution, if any, will apply to any android device. I also suspect this is similar to the poster trying to search contacts by company name.

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?

Samsung Moment - Not Able To Add Contacts Through Phone / What To Do

Sort of. I recently updated to 2. 1. Whenever i add a contact into the phone it says it is saved however it does not show up in the contacts list. I then have to physically go to gmail and move the newly stored contact over to "my contacts". Only then does the contact show up in my contact list on the phone.

This can be a real pain since i add people to my contacts almost daily and need to talk to them that same day. I can search under contacts and find their name and number through the phone that way, but it still wont show under contacts until i move it through gmail.

Has anyone else seen this issue before? If so is there a setting that i am missing that would allow me to add and view newly added contacts on my phone as soon as i add them?

Contacts Syncing - Phone Repair And Cyanogenmod

I recently bought a g1 used off of ebay for $100. When i got it in the mail, the battery was shot and the speaker was broken. I was given the option of a 50% discount and keeping it, or a 100% discount and sending it back. I chose to keep it and replaced the speaker ($6) and the battery ($3!). I've been loving the android os so far, but my contacts are f*cking up! I'll add a new contact and then it'll be gone in a minute! Also i edited the "sync groups" and then all my contacts dissappeared and i had to re-import them from my sim card.

How can i set up my contacts to work? Whats going on here? Also i need to get a new battery cause the one i bought works but only for about a day (can't complain for $3 on ebay though). Where could i get a good deal on a good battery?

Also my g1 is running 1. 6, apparently rom restrictions prevent using 2. 2 without cyanogenmod, but can i at least update to a slightly newer version? Is there a 1. 8 or a 2. 0 i can upgrade too? Is the cyanogenmod process hard? Is there a chance of bricking? Will it lag on my old hardware?

Samsung Galaxy S Phone Contacts Suddenly Disappeared

Device: samsung galaxy s
Os : android 2. 1

Basically i don't use google account to sync my contacts because the groups thing doesn't work the way i want it. So instead, i use kies, which allow you to sync outlook contact with your phone, which all worked fine. However, last night before going to bed i sent a few sms message and everything was fine, i.e. All contacts were there. But this morning when i work up because of a text message from a strange number, which was actually from a friend of mine, so i thought he has a new number so i tried to update his contacts but when i click on "update existing contact" my address book pops up and is . Empty.

After that, i opened my contacts and nothing is there. I turned on displaying google contacts and its all fine, but when i choose phone contact, absolutely nothing is displayed. I did absolutely nothing last night, and i don't believe i cleared all my contacts while in my sleep (because i don't even know how to do that while im awake). Btw, i have been adding quiet a lots of contacts over the last 2 weeks (since last time i sync with kies) so i really need them back.
