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.
My Blackberry has worked fine for 13 months. Today I looked up a contact in Outlook on my laptop and I only had 11 instead of the 1200+ I used to have. I still have all the contacts on my device. When I synced my device with my laptop it only synced those 11 contacts. I can't get the other 1200+ into Outlook on my computer. Help!
I am trying to sync my bold 9000 with my calender and contacts in outlook, had success with the calender but contacts don't show up in the address book. The heading in the address book is business-is that my problem or are the contacts located somewhere else.
I have a BlackBerry Bold 9000 smartphone and using the Blackberry desktop software version 4.2 to sync contacts And outlook emails. But I realized that new contacts added to my blackberry are being deleted automatically.
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 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.
I performed a Sync using Blackberry Desktop and now the Bold 9000 is "dead". The battery was fully charged prior to the sync and the unit was working properly. Following the sync the unit display went blank and the unit will not turn on. I have removed the battery and replaced it with another known fully charged battery and I stll cannot get a system boot sequence to start. I have attempted to re-insert the sync cable and connect to the computer but the unit is still dead.I have also tried the charging cable but to no avail.
I recently took over my office Bold 9000 for personal use. After some initial hassle, the vodafone shop managed to crack it open (metaphorically) for internet access and my AIM account, so I now get my emails. But I can't find any way to access my aol calendar. Have downloaded funambol but haven't found a way or running it on my handset , which has no discernible apps function.
I have a Bold 9000 that keeps going to contacts no matter what icon I click on.I tried upgrading the OS and the phone worked fine for about an hour and then went straight back to only going to contacts. The same thing happens when I downgrade.I am unable to make calls or do anything from the contacts list. The phone is basically unusable.
I have tried the upgrade and battery pull and restore from back up.Does anyone have any suggestions of what this could be and how to fix it.
I'm using Outlook 2003 to sync with my BB Bold 9000 (OS v22.214.171.1243). No matter what I do, when I sync the first round of results will show that most of my Outlook entries will be deleted. When I then choose Resync it does the sync correctly. I have deleted my BB calander and resynced by xferring all Outlook items to the device - sync again and the same problem occurs. All I want to do is a simple sync of all items both ways but somehow I cannot get it right. Any advise? Thx a lot
