I just upgraded my phone to a Samsung Reality and have a couple of questions. I was at the t-mobile store and saw the new Samsung phone that comes pre-loaded with Avatar, and that got me thinking, Can the Samsung Reality play movies if I can find a way to load them on an SD card?
You might just need the Contacts Copier program, if not the drivers for the phone are in the first link.
First thing to do is use Contacts Copier to backup your phone's contacts. If you can't get that working, none of this is going to work. The only advice I have is if it's sitting at the "trying to connect" countdown screen, click "Back", unplug the USB cable, plug it back in, and try again. It seems to forget the phone's there about half the time, and doing that always works for me.
Now that you have a PBO file, download this:
This is a Visual C++ project with an EXE file in the folder. To use the program, type "A900_contacts.exe file.pbo" where "file.pbo" is your PBO file.
At this point, all the program does is parse the file and print your contacts to the screen. As I have time this week I'm going to modify the program so it can take contacts from my Samsung i500 (probably in the form of a CSV file) and generate an appropriate PBO file.
The bonus with doing it this way is you can ignore the phone's built-in character limits for fields. More than 20 characters for a name, etc. I'm not sure what happens if you try to load a file containing more than 500 phone numbers yet.
In the meantime, if you run into problems, or the output isn't correct, or have any other questions, let me know. I haven't tested this with an A900m (because I don't have one) so if someone could let me know if this all works with those that'd be great.
I am considering buying a R410 from metro pcs. One of my concerns is the ability of integrating the contacts and calendar apts with outlook on this phone. Does anyone knows if it is possible? Do I need any special software?. This would be a deal breaker for me since I heavily rellied on my nokia 6566i which has recently kicked the bucket.
I got a Blackjack and I can not sync my Outlook 2003 contacts for some unknown reason. Yes I searched the posts and did all that was recommended.Re-installed Active sync, tried different versions of it and did a hard rest of Blackjack. I can sync everything else. I can select the check mark for contacts but can not modify or select setting. What's up? There has to be a work around. I'm baffled, please help.
I'm thinking about picking up a Gravity 2 (T469) but the only issue holding me back is contacts being able to sync with outlook. Can anyone confirm if the Gravity 2 is able to sync the contacts with Microsoft outlook?
syncing of outlook 2003 with the SGS2.I am using Outlook 2003 and am about to get a SGS2 and need to sync the contacts and calendar is there a way of doing this directly from PC to phone without Google or servers and stuff?
I have a laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium with Office '07 installed on it. I use Outlook '07 to manage my contacts on the notebook. Most of the contacts have their birthday saved as well & in Outlook it appears as a never-ending re-occurring event so in the future when the date arrives I'm notified/reminded about the birthday. I've installed Samsung PC Studio 3 (Vista version) & sync my phones; Samsung X820, Samsung C417 using it.
However, when I sync the contacts from Outlook '07 with my cell phones, the birthdays do not come as re-occurring events in the calendar of the phone so I would not be notified about the birthday on my phone. Is there any solution for this? For instance if a contacts birthday was Jan-01-2000. It would appear in the phone as an appointment on Jan-01-2000 & not be re-occurring for the future where as on Outlook it will be re-occurring till forever.
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.
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 wanted to update my software to the latest version so before i did that i made sure i synced/backed up my phone. Then i restored my phone from back up only to find that my contacts have all dissapeared. Why?†
All my apps, calender, notes, photos etc have appeared except for my contacts.
I've read multiple threads on this topic and still not having much luck here. I don't want to get into all the details, but let's just say I'm not smart. I managed to blow away all my contacts in outlook (playing with Google sync), and I want to get them back. Thankfully my BES/Exchange admins have a rolling 7 day backup, but unfortunately I don't know if they're going to get to it in time.So here's where I am. Thankfully I used the desktop manager to make a backup back in August. The problem is, that I can not restore my contacts as they are set to sync wirelessly. So I turned off wireless sync and then it allowed me to restore my contacts. Awesome, I have my contacts back on my phone, but they won't sync back to BES. My contacts (at the top of each) shows "synchronize using unknown". When I check my options, I see two contacts lists: "desktop" and "unknown". Desktop has no entries, unknown has all of them.So that's where I'm at. At this point I need to either:
1) Figure out how to move my contacts into the desktop contact list so that they'll sync properly 2) Export all my contacts via CSV either from the backup file or from my phone and then import them into Outlook so that they'll re-sync that way. or is there something I'm missing?
I have a sprint Curve 8330 4.5 on BES. It has worked with no problems until I upgrades to DM 5.0. Now I have some weird things happening to my contacts. 1. There is always 1 name in my list that is listed 5 times on my blackberry but only once in my outlook 2007. If I delete it the contact on my blackberry it is gone for good, both blackberry and outlook. 2. There are contacts on Outlook that will not sync wireless or when I plug it in to my blackberry. I have tried deleting the contact on outlook and then re-entering it, that works for a while and then disapears on my blackberry later. 3. On most of my contacts on blackberry, if you click there name under Company I get this "(*PLMO*<RGT>8=AAAAAAA</RGT>)" If I click edit, quote is under a field I have never seen called "Company Name Reading"If I delete company info that disapears "company name reading" and the PLMO info. But it always comes back when I plug it in. I have called IT department and they had no clue and can not get someone over to look at it until Thursday. Was hoping someone can help me out.I have tried battery pull and wiping my device.
I have an IPhone that syncs to my Outlook 2010 via Exchange.† The email and calendar syncs automatically.† I would like to sync my contacts but currently have that setting turned to "off" because I want to add my Outlook contacts but not lose my contacts on my phone.† If I sync the contacts will it just add the new ones and not overwrite the existing contacts on my phone?
I'm wondering if there is an app that let's me sync my Facebook contacts with the contacts on my phone, I've got an iPod Touch and on that I use MyPhone+ and I sync that to Windows contacts and my phone to Windows contacts but no pics get copied. is there an app there does that?
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.
When I try to sync my iPhone (via USB), I get:†> iiTunes could not sync contacts to the iPhone "xxxx's iPhone" because contacts have been disabled on the iPhone.†How do I fix?† I have an iPhone 3Gs running iOS 5.1.1, Lion 10.7.4 running iTunes 10.6.3
I deleted my personal contacts category†in MS outlook. When I sync my 8330 outlook wants to delete my personal entries in my blackberry contacts. I used devise overwrites outlook in the conflicts panel but I keep getting the same message. I am afraid to accept the chages as I don't want to lose my blackberry personal contacts. I am using v188.8.131.52 software and v4.7 desktop .
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 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.
When i try to sync, it appears to take contacts calendar etc, but at its conclusion I get a "System Error" Also get ďUnable to load system interface prior to sync beginning Lastly It sometimes just gets to 60 out of 360 contacts and stops.
I have a torch 9800 and I have 840 contacts in my address book, whenever I try to sync them, only 113 can be synced.I downloaded the new desktop manager, I made a backup and did a security wipe even but nothing can be done. I need help ASAP as I need to sync the contacts and manage them on outlook.
this has been a pain in the ***. i can't sync my phone contacts. i tried to set up a whole new account from the web and from my phone, luckily, i only got 1 contact synced, but that one was from the syncML.
I am unable to sync my contacts from my Mac (10.7.3) to my iPhone 4S (5.1) through iTunes.†I made sure to check off the Contacts sync through iCloud to prevent doubling.These are the steps I took to sync:
I go to itunes, click on my phone's icon, go to info tab, click on sync contacts and all contacts then I click Sync.It says that it is syncing contacts, but when it is done, there are no contacts on my iPhone.
I just had to get my Mac's hard drive wiped at the apple store, and now when I try to put my contacts from my phone into Address Book, it won't sync. All of my contacts seem to be on iCloud, but I can't access them.
