Firstly where are the duplicates from? You should be able to selectively sync items from exchange, thus uncheck the contacts section. Furthermore, some default contact apps allow "link", where you can link all aspects of the contacts. I gather your issue is for phone, mobile, email etc it is creating another contact. The fact that they are reappearing ...

I was having the same problem as you are now. Here's what I did in the Gmail app: Go to your Gmail account Press menu buton Press settings select your mail id Under data usage Uncheck Sync Gmail. That should do the trick. It worked for me.

No. Contacts' pictures are kept separately from the original photos you added them from. They're stored with the contacts database, not with the photos on the SD card. Deleting photos from the Gallery app or wiping the SD card won't affect them.

I know this is not a perfect solution, but it is just an workaround - you can try Truecaller app. However, this requires an Internet connection active during the time of receiving the call.

Nothing Special. Multiple color for single Letter is to differentiate multiple contacts starting with similar letter.

Deleting a contact from the list still may not be of great help, because, the contact's new messages will show up in with his/her unsaved contact number. The best choice would be to block the contact.

If you want a quick answer (two in reality) here is what I would do: 1) Go to Settings > Accounts > remove the Google account > add it back. I tried it once and it worked... 2) Go to Gmail on a desktop > Go to Settings (the gear icon in the top right) > Under General, go to 'Phone Numbers' and select your default country code from the dropdown list. ...

So i figured this out, and it was deceptively simple. It seems to be an 'undocumented' feature that if you set up a category within outlook with the name of ICE, it will automatically (at least on samsung phones) set contacts tagged with that category into the ICE group on the phone. I ended up writing a script that ensures whoever has outlook gets the ...

There are multiple ways to achieve that, some are depending on the OS your computer runs. Simple VCard exchange Open your contacts app, open its menu. You should find an item to export your contacts to your device's SDCard (usually in a sub-menu called "Import/Export"). Hitting that will write a file named 0001.vcf or similar to the SDCard toot directory. ...

I don't think it's a bug. I thinks it's a Google vanilla Android "feature" that's transferred over to Cyanogenmod. Google is very driven to have you on their cloud and have an account with them.

Hmmmm... I'm just going for the easier problem/solution: have you imported your contacts?! - Go to your contacts - Tap the menu button - Select the import option - Select import contacts from sim card

Import the contacts from SIM card to the phone memory. My phone also does not support viewing SIM contacts directly. Importing is a simple process. Just tap Contacts>Menu>Import contacts>SIM card>Select all>Import.That's it.

Android tends to work better with Google's mail (Gmail). I don't have any knowledge specifically of BT as I am a Yank, so I can't address that. I just read up on the BT/Yahoo split and looked around for a couple of minutes for a solution for you, but it didn't look good. I would recommend Gmail and then grit your teeth and make the switch.

On my phone, a LG L70, running Android 4.4 it is possible to export contacts to the phone like above comment. But after that you can also import contacts from the phone storage (via Contacts --> Menu button --> import contacts). So you can import the .vcf file from the phone storage to your Google account. There is no need for a desktop computer to be ...

As mentioned, this is depending on the make of the phone as steps ...
