My apologies if this is discussed somewhere else, I looked, couldnt find it. So does anybody know of an easy way to sync my contacts FROM my blackberry TO my gmail contacts? I have google sync on my phone, but that only messed up my contacts by dumping a bunch of duplicates into my BB contacts and it doesnt seem to reverse sync. I have since deleted my gmail contacts so I dont suffer this fate again, but cannot for the life of me figure out how to reverse sync from BB to gmail.
Initial synchronization with Gmail successfully.Then, email received, calendar items sync, but contacts there is a problem.The first changes can sync, but after a short time everything stops.Just reset the device to factory settings restores the synchronization.I tried to connect with different BlackBerry and Gmail account, and the problem repeated itself.I contacted my BIS service, at Cellcom Israel, and they reset my account.
Right now I have multipule contacts on my atrix that are "linked." Is there anyway to permanently consolidate all the linked contacts into one and export all my contacts as a csv file for outlook and gmail?
I just bought an iPhone 5c and the dealer manually transferred all of my (gmail) contacts from my Samsung Galaxy.Â Now the contacts on my iPhone are no longer synced with my gmail account.Â If I make changes to a contact on my iPhone, that change does not show up on my laptop when I am logged into my gmail account.Â
Can I fix this by turning "on" the "Contacts" button under Settings > mail, contacts, calendars > Gmail > contacts > on?Â
When I attempt this it asks me what I want to do with the existing contacts on my phone.Â What do I want to do here?Â If I say leave the contacts on my phone will the contacts merge or will I end up with duplicates?
I moved from iPhone to HTC One (on VZW) recently and I am having a hard time figuring out the syncing process on Android phones, esp HTC One I have. I have a gmail account and a lot of contacts are there, but there are some that were only on my iPhone so I imported all my iPhone ones to the HTC One.
I consider myself a power user. Please do not refer to older apps (like Contacts, its really People app now in JB). Also, I have lost about 60 contacts recently while trying to figure out the process.
I think it would be useful if I ask few specific questions:
1. Are gmail contacts the master contacts for syncing purposes? If yes, what is the role of Google+?
2. If I'd like all my contacts to be always backed up and in sync with Gmail contacts, does it really make sense to have local phone contact? Somebody I met recently showed me that he adds all his contacts directly to Google from the phone (HTC One), so I was wondering if keeping local phone contact is really necessary. Mention any scenarios in which local phone contacts would be appropriate.
3. How does the relationship between phone contact and my google contact (gmail, that is) work in terms of addition, update and delete? When I erased all my contacts on phone, it ended up erasing my contacts from gmail when I tried to sync contacts.
4. In HTC One People app, when you add a contact, it defaults to "Phone". Is there a way to change that default to "Google account"? I saw on someone's phone and they could not explain how that was configured.
I tried to sync Ash 311 with my gmail contacts two different ways with identical results.The software looks like it is busy syncing contacts, but when I check a contact I recently edited in gmail contacts, Asha 311 still displays the old phone number.
This is the first way I performed the update: Main menu > Settings > sync and backup > sync with server > sync settings > synchronized data > contacts > sync settings: Google sync > automatic sync: off > rules for incoming: Confirm firstMain menu > Settings > sync and backup > sync with server > sync now
This is the second way I performed the update:Nokia Suite > Sync > Sync Now > Contacts ... Your contacts are now in sync
So i had an old gmail account and all my contacts were synced with that one and so then i deleted that one and created a new gmail so now that im trying to sync my gmail contacts with my new gmail it wont let me it just syncs new contacts that i add not the ones that have been on my phone and in each contacts it says "synchronized with: (my old gmail)" and i wanted to know how i can change the old gmail sync with my new gmail sync i've also tried google sync and that doesnt work at all either so i would appreciate some help with this problem.
So despite my last thread where I was worried about missing some features I picked up the Icon. So far, I'm enjoying it a lot, aside from the fact I can't get my gmail contacts to sync. I've been googling and searching this forum for an answer and it appears I'm doing everything right, they just don't sync. I've deleted and re-added the account, with a restart in the middle.. nothing. I've changed the cardDAV server to m.google.com and Google and nothing. Any way besides a hard reset? It's pretty frustrating not having most of my contacts.
I have checked settings-accounts and everything is checked to sync and it shows it sync'd earlier today but when I log into my gmail account and select contacts there is nothing there. How do I go about backing up this information to my gmail account?
I set up iTunes to sync my contacts with my Google Gmail account before restoring to 4.0.1. Everything worked just fine other than having to go through and remove a few duplicates.Now I'm trying the same thing with my wife's phone. I set iTunes to sync her contacts with her Gmail account. It asked me if I wanted to Merge or overwrite the contacts on the iPhone. I selected Merge, but when it was done, it only had her Gmail contacts on the phone (with e-mail addresses only). All phone number contacts were gone. Thankfully most of them were still on her SIM card.
Before all this I tried to sync her contacts with an empty group in Windows Address Book, and it ended up copying the empty group to her phone, NOT copying her contacts to Windows Address Book, and it also copied the group with all of my phone's contacts to her phone.
How in the hell am I supposed to get this thing to work?I even tried setting up her Gmail as an Exchange account with mail, contacts, and calendars set to sync, but I still couldn't get her phone contacts into her Gmail account.I swear I'm about ready to manually type out all of her phone's contacts and numbers and just put them back on the phone after restoring to 4.0.1.
I've just set up a new gmail account and want to sync the contacts from my work phone to contacts in my gmail. I have nearly 700 contacts to sync so I'm looking to do this in the easiest (and most reliable!) way I can - any pointers? Or tips on how to make sure I don't lose them all in the process of syncing?
I have iphone with 5.1 and latest version of itunes and use a gmail account. I was using gmail directly to sync mail and calendar but this didn't (or at least I could find a way to) sync my gmail contacts to my phone contacts so i decided to use Exchange. I deleted my gmail account from my phone and added the Exchange account, following all the instructions on many websites like this one [url]. I selected 'ON' for mail, contacts and calendars. When I refresh contacts and calendar on iphone nothing happens. When I go in mail and refresh that it comes up with 'Cannot Get Mail. The connection to the server failed.'. I deleted the account and reset up in case i messed anything up but it's still not working.
my Bold 9900. Is it possible to setup e-mail service to sync read e-mail.
I there comes new mail to my Gmail account, it immediately appears in my Bold also. If I read this mail on BB, it is marked as read also in my desktop client and on web interface. But if I read new mail in web interface or desktop client it remains marked as unread in Bold (even after few hours!) and I must mark as readed manualy in phone.
When I try to sync my Blackberry's address book with my gmail contacts and calendar, it starts the synchronization service, the calendar synchronizes, the address book then says initializing, but hangs at 55% synchronization. I recently wiped the Blackberry clean and was setting up the email and synchronization options from scratch.
When I setup the phone, it gave me an option to synchronize my contacts with Gmail, which I did. But now, the contacts are not synchronizing. In between I added the Facebook application as well. FB contacts are syncing.Another thing, inside the options for my gmail contact list the Wireless Synchronization option is marked -"Not Available" and cannot be changed.I want to synchronize my contacts on BB with those on Gmail.
I'm new to BB. So far I love my Bold, but I'm having a little trouble with my gmail. First, my device does not update when I have read messages on my computer. The messages are still marked as unread on my device. Do I have to read them twice? I've tried to mark all as read, tried making sure the gmail plug-in was installed (it is), and my device is set to delete on mailbox and handheld, wireless reconcile is on, and on conflicts mailbox wins.
The second issue is that when importing my contacts from gmail, it imported ALL of them - everyone who has ever emailed me is now listed in my phone! How do I get rid of this
My Photon 4 G does not sync calendar, contact, Gmail with my company Gmail account. I believe that it just stopped syncing last week and I believe that it was following a Motorola update, but cannot say for sure. Under Data Delivery, both Background Data and Data enabled are checked green. However, this is interesting because Email and corporate sync is grayed out on that screen. When I go to Account, checking the sync options is not possible, but I can do a manual sync. Please note, at one time, these options to sync Contacts, Gmail and Calendar were available. I've pulled the batter. I really do not want to reset to factory default. Suggestions? (Please note this is a company Gmail account, not just regular Gmail.)
Trying to Sync via PC patch cable the BB Address Book (Contacts) with MS Outlook Contacts.Set-up failing apparently because wireless data sync with the Bold is turned ON. Can't locate referenced setting on the device to turn OFF.
I recently added my gmail address to device. In Options/ Advanced options / Default services It only lists my Gmail account for contact List (Sync).I want to switch to my POP account as that is where I maintain my contact list.how do I get my POP acct in that list?
My wireless synchronization with my gmail contacts stopped working. When I change a contact on my BB or in my gmail contacts the 2 don't get synchronized. They used to. I even get an email from BB telling me that it stopped and I should change to Yes in my contacts list under my gmail account, but after checking it is set up to Yes. What changed? what should I do?I have a 9700 from Telus
How do I synch the contacts from my Berry to my google gmail account? When I go to my contacts and use options I have a contact list of unknown which has my contacts that I use for my bold. When I go to the unknown list under Wireless Synchronization it is grayed out and says unavailable. I can't figure out how to synch them. I want to back up my contacts online/gmail and be able to download them to future phones.
So I added a new gmail email address to my phone but by accident, when prompted told it to synch my contacts with that account. The first thing it did was import all the contacts to my gmail address book, on gmail.com, effectively erasing most of them from the phone. I took it into the t-mobile store and the guy somehow managed to recover about 1/3 of the contacts. So when I took it home, I deleted that email address and just plugged it into my computer and re-synched the contacts from my address book. However, whenever I look in my address book on the blackberry now, at the top of a contact it says "Sychronize using: email@example.com" (Obviously insert the email address I used). But that email address is no longer on my phone, so how is it synched with that? It also I think it is creating problems with synching up my facebook contacts as their pictures no longer show as icons on my phone. It's a minor problem, and seems to be a software issue, but is there any way to completely un-sych my contacts from this deleted email address?
