Depending on what phone you have, you can try to hit the edit button on the contact, then tap phone contact, and choose the google account. In my test, it saved the picture. -Adam

There is no functionality to "unmark" the default setting for a contact. However this work around will remove the "mark as default" setting for a phone entry: Edit the contact Add a new phone number using the same number as the entry currently marked as default Note: You will need to temporarily choose a different phone number type (e.g. work) for the ...

Click on the menu button at the top, then edit. When it lets you edit the numbers, click on the number you want to remove. Then you should see a minus sign on the right, click on that. It should remove that number. Then save. Hope this helps. Edit. Here is a screenshot of how it looks on my phone. http://i.imgur.com/Tk6vNvv.jpg

Go to the hidden contact from the phone contacts list, at the bottom you'll find a button saying "add to my contacts". That should resolve the issue. I had the same scenario with one of my contacts, and spent a lot of time looking, and just by chance found that button.

Maybe Samsung Smart Switch can help you to transfer contacts to your new Samsung phone.

This is all possible, but if you are open to a replacement dialer app, I recommend Contacts+, it can assign pictures independently of numbers to contacts, and these pictures do show up on incoming calls and texts.

The same thing happened to me over a year ago. My contacts are still messed up because I noticed the problem only over a month after it had happened and I had also done enough changes on both my phone and Google web that I didn't dare trying a roll back to a backup that I had taken myself. So, I've just lived with it and cleaned up the contacts as I've run ...

First go the https://contacts.google.com and remove duplicates under the option Find duplicates. This will remove any duplicates and you can merge them to make it Since Google contacts preview(contacts.google.com) doesn't support export feature as of now, you have to visit https://www.google.com/contacts and take a .vcf export to your computer and transfer ...

Nope. It's not possible. A key reason for this is (at least) that GTalk identifies people with email address while WhatsApp identifies people by their mobile number. On top of this both of the systems are proprietary and I don't think neither Google nor WhatsApp would want their users to be pushed over to the other system. The above said, if you have ...

I looked into this some time ago and at least then it was not possible super easily. The best tip I found (which I haven't tried out myself as it applies to rooted devices only and I haven't yet taken that plunge) was from a Reddit thread that discussed the question. The thread points to an Exposed Framework module called DonkeyGuard. The developer ...

Gmail automatically sorts all the contacts based on your most frequent uses. But if you don't find that name at top, then you might consider saving a new contact. To view a complete list of your most frequently mailed contacts, click Gmail at the top-left corner of your Gmail page, then choose Contacts. Next, click Most Contacted. When you’re composing or ...

If you have many friends or followers on Facebook & Twitter & a big group on Google Plus, then you can synchronize all those contacts with their email-ID & phone numbers to your mobile phone’s contacts. http://www.androidwala.com/how-to-get-facebook-contacts-on-android-phone/

You can follow these steps: Rename the contact in your phone book and save. Go to Settings > Account > whatsapp > sync now (or any similar option) Most likely, your contact is not synced after you renamed!

Can't it be done by synchronisation of contact over whatsapp contact.. I mean editing contact in phone or sim card and sync to whatsapp then whatsapp replace the old contact and shows the new one.

WhatsApp seems to create a read-only version of the contact on many phones, so if simply changing the contact's name in your contacts app doesn't work, you might have to: Delete the contact Create a new one with the updated name.

This may work : Save your friend's number (copy & paste into a note taking app or write it on paper or just remember it). Delete your friend's number. Add new contact with the name you want and enter your friends number.

Okay, I should searched a bit more before posting this question. But in my defence the answer was in second page of Google search results. From this link I gather that: Facebook contacts will no longer sync with the Android Contacts app [on Android OS 4.1 and later]. The Android Contact list is built to provide data portability, and Facebook ...
