Samsung Galaxy S II :: Connecting Contacts With FB Contacts?
Sep 12, 2011
I spent ages yesterday individually connecting each phone contact to their fb account and then today all of a sudden they all just dissapeared again! I don't want every fb 'friend' to appear in my phonebook, so how on earth do I do this so that it's not going to delete them all each day. This phone won't defeat me, it has such good reviews so I am baffled why I am having problems.
Love the phone - just got a really irritating problem. I've synced my phone with my gmail account - the My Contacts list has my key contact email addresses. Then I have multiple groups within gmail account relating to work emails etc, nearly 500 odd.
On the phone, when I click my 'Contacts' button, initially it showed all my phone number contacts, as well all google email contacts mixed with them. I corrected this by going to 'display options' to select 'display only contacts with phone numbers', so that I didn't have to trawl through random email addresses mixed with my proper phone contacts. Great, sorted.
But, when I go to compose a text message - if it is to one or two specific contacts it is fine...I just type their name and it comes up. If I want to scroll through all my phone contacts to send the same message to multiple contacts, big problem - I press that envelope button in the top right corner next to 'enter recipient', and it takes me to the Contacts list, but here it still shows ALL 600 odd contacts with phone contacts still mixed with google email contacts, which is impossible to scroll through and select multiple people to send a text message to....Does anyone know how to sort this out?!??!
Ok, so when I am in the compose message view I start typing a name to send a message to and the phone shows me all numbers for that contact, even if I deleted that number... for example say my contact Lewis upgrades and gets a new number, I edit his contact, deleting the old number and replacing it with the new. Then when I type LEW into the compose message "to" section it shows all numbers ever stored under that name, if you know what I mean..? So i am typing someones name getting multiple numbers even if they only have 1 number to there name.This also seems to be the case if someone registers a number to FB and I overwrite that number with a new number
I recently purchased 2 SGS II phones - one for myself and one for my wife. I have this same problem with both of them.When I go into Email and try to pull up the list of my contacts I can only see about 7 of my 50 contacts. The screen will not scroll to display all the contacts.It first was not working on my wife's phone. I checked it on my phone and it was working when I first tried it but it stopped working as I was testing the scrolling function. Now neither phone will scroll so you can see all your contacts.
When i got my Galaxy S2, i had no problems adding photos to people in my contact list, but just recently, every time i search for that contact to add a new photo or update it, regardless of whether the contact already has a photo or not, it comes up with "Contact not found"??
These are the steps i am using (in case there is another way):
* Open photo from Gallery * Touch Phone Menu (Comes up with Share Via, Set as and More along bottom) * "Set as" * Choose Contact photo * Type name into "Find contacts" * Immediately comes up with "Not found"
My missus has just bought the SGS2 - she previously had a Blackberry Bold 9780.The issue we have is getting her contacts from the BB to the SGS2.You cannot copy the contacts to the sim in the BB so I have had to do a backup of them using the BB desktop manager. That saves them as an IPD file.So how can I now get those loaded onto the SGS2?Will KIES recognise such file?
I'm selling my WP7 phone tomorrow and getting a Galaxy S2 sunday when AT&T releases it and wondered if anyone here has come from WP7 to the GS2 and found a good way to back up the contacts for the transition.. I do use Google mail and calendar on WP7 for my email and appointments, are my contacts and numbers saved through Google?
My question is about the contacts. Currently I have Gmail contacts, FB Contacts and T-mo Contacts (my carrier) How can I ONLY use the Gmail Contacts. I also want the phone to auto sync with Gmail contacts to update when ever a change is made.
I have SGS2 Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) updated via kies.
In the contacts app, Im sure there used to be a way where by if you were syncing your facebook account, status updates and media would appear in the contact (In Contacts). This doesnt appear to be the case anymore.
I am about to do some travel and was wondering if this phone would add +61 to your stored contact phone numbers and minus the zero. I am in Australia and just need this Country Code. My wife has an IPhone and she can do that easy in one of the menu's somewhere. Does this phone do this if not is there an app capable of doing.
Is there some way that I can backup the sim card contacts only to my PC?I have tried using Kies but although it can bring up my phone contacts, it will not bring up my sim card contacts.I am using ICS.
i have issues trying to connect my sg 11 to my parrot bluetooth in my van,ive had many phones which have connected no probs and synced my contacts to straight away,even my iphone worked hassle free,i've just upgraded to a nice shiney galaxy 2,which is excellent i must say,just 1 gripe,it will connect to my parrot,but i cant sync my contacts,so no phone book access
My previous phone was a (rather ancient!) Samsung G600, which used PC Studio. I have my contacts backed up on my PC in PC Studio, although I think I am running an old version (I don't like to update as when I did so before, it deleted all my stored information!)I believe Kies is used instead of PC Studio now, although I have not downloaded it yet. Am I able to import my contacts from PC Studio into Kies?
My boyfriend just got the Samsung Galaxy S2. He is coming from an iphone4. He managed to get all of his contacts from his iPhone onto his PC, gmail recognizes all 1715 contacts! He synced his Samsung with gmail yet his phone only picked up 1406 contacts. Where are the other 300? They are contacts that he uses everyday like mine, and friends. But they have disappeared between gmail and the phone.
I'm considering purchasing this phone (Samsung Galaxy S2) when it comes available on Sunday 4 October on the AT&T network. I've never had a smart phone before, so I'm clearly a bit behind the times. My current Sony Ericsson w810i phone lets me sync my contacts and calendar from Microsoft Outlook 2010 with my phone. Am I to understand that Android wants to sync everything with Google (Gmail)? I really don't want Google to have all my contacts and my calendar entries--they get enough of my personal data as it is. So, can this phone sync directly with MS Outlook without providing data to "the cloud"? IF yes, how is it accomplished? Via Kies software over wi-fi or USB cable? Or does it require additional software?
I have copied my contacts from my old phone via Bluetooth to this device and then I used the "Move device contacts to" option in the contacts app and choose the Samsung Account option to back them up. But what if I decide to switch to a non-Samsung device? How do I take the contacts from Samsung Account and at least copy them to Google account?
Is there any way of getting the actual phone numbers to show when in the "Contacts" screen instead of just the contacts name. If I want to look for a phone number, it means that I have got to click on each contact name to bring up the next screen with the phone number etc on it and then click back to the contacts screen and keep doing it all through the list of contacts.
With my old HTC Desire it used to show both right at the start.
