Too Many Contacts Deleted - All Contacts Now Missing Phone Numbers?!
So, my fiance and I both got the Eris last week, and we both got our contacts transfered from our old phones (hers was LG EnV Touch). We both had existing GMail accounts which were setup by the Verizon techs at the store as well.
The other day, she started telling me that she was getting this weird message on her phone "Too Many Contact Deletes" or something to that effect. I disregarded it as nothing, and carried on...until tonight.
She called me freakin out that all her favorite people in her HTC Favorites Widget were gone, including me, and that my number just showed up when i called her, no name, no picture, just number.
So i had her check her People list and she said they were all still there, except that all their PHONE NUMBERS WERE MISSING.
I quickly logged into her GMail account to confirm, sure enough, everyone was still there, but all the numbers were gone.
I did some research and found a little bit on the error message she got originally, but nothing about random deletion of contacts phone numbers..
I still have her LG EnV Touch here with all her contacts, and am contemplating deleting all of her GMail contacts, all of her Phone contacts and then importing the list into GMail, and syncing with the phone.
Is that what you would do?
I'm worried that this will happen again. What is this caused by and how does she prevent this in the future?
Yet another reason why i dont get the warm fuzzy by having Google manage all my contacts... :|
