WhatsApp doesn't want to give you this power (for legal reasons perhaps). The "export conversation" only exports most recent media. So I have elaborated a tidy 4-step solution to collect all media from a specific conversation group into my computer. Lets suppose you want the "Fishing Club" group media. Follow this steps: Export the ...

The best solution I could find is OpenContacts. It's a completely separated contact book that comes with good integration, but without letting your contact information slip through it's own container. No contacts will be shared to other apps like WhatsApp. It's my choice when it comes to handling business contacts while ensuring GDPR compliance. I even use ...

What still works with the Android 11 Contacts app is the following: go to Settings -> Export ... - just select the G contacts provider for export - take note of the filename - say - contacts.vcf go to Settings -> Import ... - select P contacts provider as import destination and select the previously exported file contacts.vcf in the main view, select ...

A more complicated solution but maybe the cleanest one, you can export your contacts and manually edit the .vcf (with Notepad++ for example), replace all the "END:VCARD" by "END:VCARD\n" to have a new line between each contact, and then manually add birthday for each contact. A vcard looks like this: BEGIN:VCARD VERSION:2.1 N:Name;;;; FN:...

Short answer: I made an app for this called Quis, and would love to hear if it solves your problem :) Longer answer: Android doesn't save the date you added contacts, unfortunately. However, there is a trick: you can sort contacts by their "raw ID" in the database, which roughly increase over time. It's not perfect, meaning that it will more or ...

Open Outlook CSV file. Cut the Title Column (column D), and paste before the First Name Column (column A). Save as CSV. This should result in contacts importing to Google correctly.

The Skype duplicating contacts has been an issue for me and searching a solution in Google shows that the problem has existed for about 10 years, why the Skype developers can't resolve this is odd. To try and reduce the problem then I left sync contacts off in Skype and never synced them, but still had many duplicates of the default phone sim entries i.e. ...

In the meantime, I have found out that the dialer of this phone really can't link contacts. What a bummer... I thought this was a basic functionality of all but the most basic phones. (Well, maybe it is, and this phone is just one of the most basic ones.) In any case, be prepared to add a 3rd party dialer to the bill if you're thinking of buying this phone ...

you cannot find the sender details from the photo. There's no EXIF data added to the photo which can track its sender. So, that's the answer to your question. Next, you do have other ways by which you can likely find the number: If you sync contacts to any cloud service (such as Google contacts), you can check there and find out the number. If you backup ...

If Your Phone is Set to Display Contacts from Google Account, it will likely keep showing except if you deselect the linked google account from displaying its contacts. Else, you will need to delet the contact and syncronize it.

It is meant for your relationship with contact After a relationship is added, you can call, text, or email the person using their nickname.... After the nickname is added, you can contact them by saying things like "Text my sister" or "Email my mom." Some typical fields from Google contacts app in screenshot (you can define a custom ...

I agree 100%. This problem is a PITA, and AFAIK Google has not offered any feasible solution. In addition, if an app steals your list of contacts, or anyone's cloud database gets compromised, every single contact you ever had gets released into the wild. My current solution is not ideal, and is really a workaround. It consists of three primary processes: ...

There are several sources that can be used for contacts. I eg use CardDAV (and CalDAV for calendars) with my own Nextcloud install (an app named DAVx5, formerly called DAVDroid, takes care for the sync). There are more sync apps available, and also other, more light-weight server software (like Baïkal). You can also use a local contact storage and take care ...

I should have waited a bit more. But maybe this helps someone else with the problem. I had just had to restart, load the app, see it still detected no contacts, leave the app, go on another app, wait a bit, and get back to Contacts app. Then it showed the problematic contacts. And I was able to delete them, only from the Contacts app. And I think the problem ...

This answer is based on beeshyams's comment. Download & install the SA Contacts Lite application; it is available on places where you don't need an account, e.g. via APKPure.com. Start the app. In Settings: 3.1 enable Export All Fields. 3.2 Disable Export Photos. 3.3 Enable Merge Duplicates. Click Export, then Start. A format selection dialog will come ...

If you are able to see that other contacts' Security Code Change Notification, it means that you are they have you as a contact as. These codes are unique to each chat and can be compared between people in each chat to verify that the messages you send to the chat are end-to-end encrypted. If you have never communicated with a contact, there won't be any ...

You can copy all contacts from your SIM card using the Contacts app. Open it, select the burger menu in the top left corner, open Settings -> Import -> SIM card

@Memmo's answer is great and put me in the right direction. However, the script does not work anymore, because the indention was changing for Telegram exports. Also I wanted a version that works for all country origins. My output CSV can also be imported into Google Contacts without the necessary step to convert it to the VCard. Here is my modified version: ...

you may have the contact linked to an "unknown" contact. You'll need to unlink the two contacts and it should populate with the name on your contacts.

What I do is simply create a separate folder in Internal Storage, which contains all my 'pics for Contacts' -- SD content always tends to change OR you change the SD card throughout years/lengthy periods of time. Whenever I get a new phone, I simply transfer/copy the contents of my 'pics for Contacts' folder, which is located in my Internal Storage folder, ...
