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 ...

Rendering Tamil characters is a challenge as there is no one glyph to one character mapping as in English. Earlier versions of Android (before 4.1) does not have this support natively. Which means unless the manufacturer or the author of the ROM decides to additional support, Tamil characters cannot be rendered properly. There were few hacks which helped ...

Just tested this on my phone and my gmail, and it seems to work. I'm running 4.4 with the stock Contacts app on my phone. On your phone, in the Contacts app: menu button -> import/export contacts Choose export to storage and it will create a .vcf file to /storage/emulated/0/ which is the root folder for storage Transfer this file via email, or usb to a ...

For those asking for a clearer, illustrated answer: Click on the (+) New conversation On the right hand of the search box, click on the really-nonobviously-a-modality-switch phone icon: Search will now be limited to your Google contacts. Presumably some designer made a bizarre choice to use a phone call icon to represent the phone address book. Note: ...

As MemCtrl mentioned, go to http://contacts.google.com and see if your contacts (with the new numbers) are there. If not, you can restore them using "Restore contacts..." option (hit the "More..." button to see it), provided they weren't deleted more than 30 days ago.

You have done half the work. By this query we can understand that this new Google's people details sync should be turned off too together with Google contacts as this new service connecting you with others via some other platforms such as Google+.

Why that complicated? There's no Xprivacy or other tool required to prevent your device from syncing contacts with Google. It's rather a question of your settings: If on account creation you decided to "Backup your data with Google", you might want to re-consider this, as this might include more personal data than just your contacts in Settings→Accounts &...

I think Google+ profile pictures have to be chosen by the people themselves. Your Google contacts are private to you while their profile picture on their public profile is public. In their profile information you will see private contact data as well, but it's explicitly mentioned and are additional. I don't think their is a way to do so because it just ...

I might be a little late, but still, at least for google. I had the very same problem recently, some whatsapp contacts were separate from original (google / device / doesn't matter). Manual join did not work - phone said contacts joined but they did not. After some fiddling I found a solution thet worked for me in all cases. Problem was in phone number ...

Now contacts moved to Archive label ...

Click on the people (contact) app and click the menu button and go to Settings -> Contacts to Display -> Customize. Then make sure only "My Contacts" and "Stared in Android" are enabled. Google shouldn't be adding random emails to My Contacts (since those should be ones you specifically added and the "All other contacts" should contain all the addresses you ...

Remember: when creating a contact, you can decide where to store it. Usually, there are at least 3 choices: Google, SIM, phone. If I read your question correctly, it looks like you have a copy in each of these places. In this case, Tirath's suggestion doesn't work, as GMail will only see what's sync'd there (and phone + SIM don't get sync'd). You then might ...

Buy Redmi phones. It has pre installed Tamil language. I am using that phone only.Or else Flash phone with Cyanogen or MiUi mod. But it will tamper your phone warranty. Do it at your own risk. The best Tamil keyboard i know is Sellinam. Currently i am using that keyboard app only. தங்கள் கேள்விக்கான விடை கிடைத்திருக்கும் என நம்புகிறேன்.

Go to People section in Google Play Store: And unfollow everyone there. If that doesn't help, go to Settings->Applications. Remove access to Contacts for Google Play Store, clean its Data and Cache, and reboot your device. If that doesn't help, do the same for Google Play Services. If that doesn't help, I doubt there is much you can do left. Google Play ...

On Android devices without an option to save contacts locally (either to the phone or the SIM), you can use FJ Software's MyLocalAccount (which you can choose to sync to your Google account or not as you wish).

Yes it is possible. You can choose what items to sync in the account settings. The option might be relocated slightly, but you'll ideally find it at the following location. I'm including a screenshot for reference. Settings > Users & Accounts > Your Google Account > Account sync. Here turn off the toggle for Contacts. Contacts from this account will ...

The name of the caller will not be identified if the contact is hidden in Google Contacts. The contact will be removed from the contacts list in the stock Samsung contacts app. I tested this by calling my mobile with my work phone.

If you install the Yahoo mail app from the Play Store, it will synchronize your contacts to your phone's address book, and pull them up in any app, including Gmail. The advantage of this method is that you will have an ongoing sync, meaning any contacts you add via Yahoo website will automatically appear on your phone, and vice-verse. If you don't want to ...
