Sup? First post and I'm sure this has cropped up plenty of times, so I apologise for that, and I'm sure this is not a problem pertaining to simply the Desire S, but probably all HTC Sense phones (and dare I say it all Androids).
Anyway, I've had the Desire S since release in early April. I adore it, but contacts is a nightmare. I've deleted contacts and resynced several times already. But recently I changed my Google addess from Googlemail to gmail, so last night I reset my phone to factory settings.
Before syncing my phone to Google, Facebook etc., I added in everyone's numbers manually, setting them all as 'Phone' entries.
Click someone's face in People and up pops my options to call/text/view etc. Perfect. But when I start adding FB/Google/Skype etc. is when things get messy.
Take for example my friend Steve who's number I have stored on my phone. I link up his Facebook, Skype & Google and then click his face. Now I get to call, text, view, website (Google+) and his gTalk. Where's his Facebook & Skype?
Take Dave as another example: I also have his number in my phone, but I've not linked his FB/Skype accounts yet. I click the face on the FB/Skype account and I have the FB/Skype options available to me. But the second I link them all up, they're gone.
It makes no sense to me. If I link up Scott's Facebook & Twitter, and I don't have his number, then click his face, I can do both still.
It's really aggravating how I lose the privilidge to Skype/Facebook someone once they're synced up to the phone account. Besides that, all Skype contacts have an empty email option that is then added to the linked account. Plus, only a couple of people bring up the gTalk option.
Does anyone know how to sort these problems?
