Motorola Atrix 2 :: Remove AT&T Address Book Account?
Nov 13, 2011
I inadvertently activated the AT&T address book when I first got the Atrix 2..not knowing that I even had an AT&T address book account.I called AT&T and they deleted the account and any associated contacts with it on their end,however, they had no clue how to remove the account from the phone and said it was a Motorola issue.I deleted all contacts off my phone and now my contacts are just synced with Google(all AT&T address book contacts are gone) but the option to sync with AT&T address book is still an option in settings.The account shows up with a "locked" symbol next to it.
I just found pictures in my address book that I havn't added. Are these pictures that people uploaded to their google+ accounts and google automatically scanned my email addresses and associated these pictures?
so I entered my Facebook account to Motoblur and it loads all my contacts to the adddress book. Not all people have their numbers/pictures on facebook so I also imported contacts to google and they appear. But this is where the problems start:
There is a linked contact consisting of Facebook and Google. Since the facebook account has no picture I went to Edit- > Use existing photo -> chose one -> save. It adds the picture but after I click save it is gone. I assume the problem is that I chose facebook as my primary picture source in Motoblur. But how can I add a custom picture instead?
I have a Google profile let's say "Josef Biden" but as he wants to keep some privacy he calls him self "Josef Doe" on facebook. But no matter if I choose "Josef Biden" and link it to "Josef Doe" or if I choose "Josef Doe" and link it to "Josef Biden", the final contact will be the facebook one "Josef Doe". Obviously that's not his name, how can I change this and make the right name win?
I'm having a problem with the Caller ID on my Curve 8320, however, the solution in the following thread doesn't seems to be working with my problem URL...incoming calls appear without the names registered in the address book
Here is an example: John Doe Office: +966 (3) 123-4567 Mobile: +966 (5) 1234-5678
When John calls the following is displayed: 0 (3) 123-4567 or 0 (5) 1234-5678
When John sends me an SMS his name appears I need to put in the +966 as I travel out of the country a lot. I tried using the Smart Dialing option, but it doesn't seem to work properly (it won't remove the zero, it only pads the number with the country code). Also, I could not figure out what to put for the National Number Length (land lines are 7 & mobiles are 8)
I think about 90% of my contacts in my address book on my Tour had all of a sudden disappeared. Yes, I didn't do anything and it's gone! Well this is what happened. I added a new email account to my BB and it was "activating" the email account. There was also a new icon that showed up while "activating". After about 20 minutes it's done "activating" and the icon was gone. So I thought everything was fine and dandy. The next day, I was told that my windows live account kept on signing in and out on it's own every few minutes. I made a call using speed key and there was no name for the number (the call did go through though). So I went to my address book and saw that 90% of my contacts had disappeared. That's what happened. I did not do a back up before I added a new email account to BB.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org" (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?
How does one remove a facebook account (or any other social network account) from the motoblur account. Such accounts do not appear as seperate items in 'settings' > 'accounts' and opening the motoblur account (on the phone) merely shows the linked email address and password (unlike all other accounts it cannot be edited in any way).
i have blackberry 9810 and i want to send my contacts from my address book on my macbook pro to my blackberry . i installed the blackberry desktop software Then I connect my blacberry to my macbook pro and the sync started .the calender , notes , tasks was Synchronized and every thing was ok but the contacts didnt Synchronize and I do not know why..
All my contacts have disappeared from my address book. I created a group and transferred a contact into this group. I then deleted the contact from the main address book (a mistake, I know) and all my contacts disappeared. Also my address book will no longer save any contacts! I can view, edit & save my contacts from messages and emails I've received.
Motorola Phone Tools (MPT) v4.23.When viewing the dual pane of the V3i phonebook and PC address book, I can't specify a category in the PC phonebook that coincides with the V3i phone book. Am I missing something? The PC Address book doesn't let me specialy a speed dial number, am I missing something there? Is there better software than MPT for the V3i? Avanquest STINKS!
V3i ComplaintsI separated contacts from companies then transferred them to the V3i with MPT, what the firetruck? The V3i doesn't have a company field, how dumb it that? Can this be changed with a flex modification? The V3i converts the first and last name on the PC phonebook view to "Full Name" which OK but if there is a contact and company the V3i won't recognize the company it converts the name only, STUPID! Motorola claims each contact has 6 phone entries per contact but it doesn't. A 40-billion dollar company can't hire a decent company to program phone software better than this.Is there a real phonebook that can be flashed onto the V3i?
Yesterday i droped my phone (v300) from my balcany.I sent it on the ledge and didnt realise how icy it was.It fell and the top part of the phone wich has the screen broke off. I bought a new phone but i cant seem to take my contacts out of my v300.I have moto tools, the USB cable as well. The problem is Moto phone tools needs the phones to be on, and it no longer boots up now that the screen isnt connected.
I was wondering if theres a way to get the contacts out of the phone even if it dosnt boot up.I also have an older v300 phone Wich was my brother but he upgraded his when the speaker for talking no longer worked wich seems to be common problem with the phone. Im willing to try anything twice.Not it to much of a hurry my main connacts i know there numbers by hard but i have like 130 numbers in that phone.
With the help of people from this forum, I put together a driver pack for the Motorola SLVR L6, so you can use iSync and Address Book (to send text messages). The "drivers" are two plugins which are installed into your Library folder.With minor modifications, this will probably work with the SLVR L7 as well. The Address Book SMS driver should actually work with most Bluetooth phones.
at&t has pre-loaded a full page of entries in the address book that you can not delete. They all are named AT&T xxxxx so they are always at the top of the list and you have to scroll through a complete page of numbers every time you want to find some on in the address book. I called customer support and they told me there was no way to delete these. I'm sure its a hidden code to unlock and delete these. This is unacceptable that they force you to have numbers in your contacts that you will never use. Has any one figured out how to delete these entries?
Does any one know of a way to sync my Thunderbird Contact list with my Addressbook of my Cliq? Be it a program on the computer or a site/addon for thunderbird/app for the phone (second way is prefered). I would rather not use gmail address book as my gmail account address book is messed up and I never use gmail (mail side) for any email so there is no reason to clean up that disastor.
Is there a way to set up different ringtones for individual people in my address book? I had that with my iPhone, and would like to do the same with my Triumph. It is nice to know who is calling by the ringtone instead of having to take the phone out of my pocket and look. I usually use BT device, so that really is a feature I use.
I have multiple accounts...fb, 2 exchange, gmail etc. Wheni search for a phone number it may give me nothing or it will only give me a mobile and not a home. Also sometimes it work under txt but not contacts. I came from a palm pre and am jsed to synergy where everything merged
I had an EVO. it synced all my facebook contacts with my phonebook contacts. So i could look at pics and statuses from my phonebook. Im assuming this phonebook doesnt work that way. it added facebook contacts before i got to add my real contact list. so now there are doubles of some ppl . and some of my contacts that dont have their phone #'s on fb, i cant link them to my contacts like the EVO would. Also, some contacts that i had linked to facebook show up now with a NOTE under them with a HTClink:for their facebook. (if you can understand that) Also the contacts that say they do have a facebook. when i click go to their page. its just goes to mine. so the links must be screwed up.
When I first got my Pearl, I was prompted to copy my address book info from the SIM to the phone. Over the past 2 weeks, I have been trying to add contacts to my phone book from the Tmo website and they did not show up - I named them Test 1, test 2...etc. Well, I finally figured out why - the phone numbers are being saved to the SIM card. When I open the address book, the default is the phone book on the device and I have to click to view the SIM contacts.
Is there a way to change the default so that when I open my address book, it opens the one from the SIM. Will I still be able to send PIN messages and such and would I then delete the info from the device address book. I don't see why I need the contacts in 2 places.
Also, when I update/synch my contacts from a CSV file on my PC via the desktop manager, it copies to the device address book - is there a way to to copy it straight to SIM?
I was trying to create a sub folder in my address book & now I can't find my original add book. The add book icon is still there, but there are no contacts in it. The best i remember i hit filter and chose business & typed in a name for what i thought would be a new folder or group. i'm not sure what happened, but I can't see any of my contacts. I have switched from personl to business & back again & it says "no contacts" on both. But if I go to email & put in a letter all of my old contacts that begin with that letter show up. & my speed dials still work. But if i go to sms/mms & do compose sms it shows "No Addresses"....well I spoke too soon...now if i go to email & type in a letter it don't show a list of ppl that begin with that letter.... I have tried taking the battery out with the phone off & on & it's still the same....
My girlfriends phone is about to die and i tried backing up the address book via motorola phone tools but it says something like the phone isnt ready or some crap. Anyway, i can still view the files with MPT. Is it possible to just backup the file that the address book is stored in on the phone (not the sim card) and just replace it on a new phone? If so, whats the name of the file and where is it located?
I just picked up a Motorola Razr on a Cingular plan. All was good - the phone was recognized and I was able to sync through iSync for all of my contacts.I used to have a few Sony Ericcson phones and the coolest feature through Mac OS X was being able to dial out to the phone through Address Book or having Address Book/Mac OS X recognize when a call was coming in and pause iTunes, and put up a dialog box with the caller ID and let you click "answer" or "send to vmail".
I have tried to do this with the Razr to no avail. I have gone into Address Book and clicked the bluetooth button in the upper left hand corner.A dialog box pops up telling me to pair the bluetooth device and enter a passkey (which I dont have).Entering in anything into the passkey dialog box will say "pairing successful" but it doesnt really work. hopefully someone here can help me figure out why I can't dial out from my Mac to Razr.
Droid X was 2.2 (Froyo) - paired beautifully with my car's bluetooth - Address Book - display names and phone numbers perfectly.On Friday , August 5, 2011, I selected to upgrade to 2.3 (Gingerbread).Everything seemed perfect.New bells, new whistles.I received error message trying to text. I received unexplained promblems seeking access to the internet. I tried calling home and the error message surprised me. I was no longer active. I needed to contact Verizon to reactivate my phone. I asked why my phone was deactivated. I was assured my phone was not deactivated and was walked thru a "re-activation process". I have now done this twice in the past 5 days.My car's bluetooth has alos allowed me to viewed the phone address book by "name' of my telephone number, including the telephone number.First name, last name and telephone number. So, while driving, bluetooth enabled, select the name of the person I want to call, push the button and viola!... hands free calling via my car's bluetooth.Now that I have upgraded... No "name' is listed, only the telephone numbers. I met with my local Verizon sales support person. He was stumped.We deleted the pairing, reinstalled the pairing 3 times. Still no address book by "name"... Stumped.
How do you prevent address lookup entries from being saved in the address book. For e.g. when I lookup a name in my company's global address list (I have BES), the address lookup entry gets saved in my address book. Is there a way to disable this feature (of saving the entry in address book)?
picture source not updating in their address book/contact list?
On the Cliq I never had this problem. On the Cliq2 when people update their FB default pictures, it doesn't sync and update them in my address book anymore. Motorola said it should but it doesn't. They offered me a new phone but hello this is my second Cliq2 that it hasn't worked on. Apparently it's not the phone. It's motoblur!
I like my E72 but I have two problems that really annoy me.
1. In the past when ever I would write a new email I would get list of suggested email addresses in the "To" field. For example, if I would was to write the letter S I would get the email address of the people in my address book whose name starts with an S (sam, Sofia etc). for some reason this feature stopped working on my phone and I can't find how to make it work again. if I want to send an email I need to manually write the email address in the "To" field. The auto suggestion feature works perfectly on my wife's phone (an E72 with the same firmware - 22.007) but on my phone it won't suggest email addresses from my contacts.
2. Another problem is that my Gmail that is synced to the phone, through the Nokia Messenger server is locked on "hide emails older than 2 weeks". Now, I have hundreds of emails stored on my phone that dates to February 1st - the day I got the Phone.
Is there a way to delete these emails automatically, without deleting them on the Gmail account itself? It makes my phone really when going through the emails.
I recently shutdown my facebook account. I cannot seem to be able to remove from my Atrix tho. Also, if I try to delete a contact that was imported though facebook, I get a message that says "cannot delete files from read only accounts" Is there any way to get rid of facebook and all of the facebook contacts on my Atrix? Or, do I have to reset my phone to factory?
I'm looking at the schematica and I can't make out how I get this battery door to open. My phone is non-repsonsive. ican't turn it on and the troubleshooting guise said to remove the battery and put it back in. I can't figure out how to open up this device and get the battery out.
