    Hi I'm new here, and I'm sure this querstion has been asked but I searched "contacts" and didn't see anything. I have a Moto Droid 1, was chatting with someone who has a Epic and their contacts app has a bunch more fields. I tried about 6 free ones from the Market and they all stunk really bad. I don't mind paying for one, I just want something that offers more than what I got. Also, would it be possible if I found somebody with a Samsung Epic for them to pull the .APK off their device and me putting it on mine? Mine's rooted if that helps.

    I am a former palm user. Palm OS had many contact apps to choose from. I also am searching for some options for android. Any suggestions? Finding them in the market has not been successful.

    I don't think any good ones exist, I've tried every free one I could find and they all were really really bad. For the time being I've given up. If I come across anything I'll post it here.

    Have you tried saving the contacts to your phone memory if they are on the sim, on my optimus (2.1) I have more fields if they're saved to the phone

    What fields are you looking for? I have the European version of Droid 1 and I havve the following fields in my contacts app:
    Name
    Surname
    Phone
    Email
    IM
    Postal address
    Organisation
    Notes
    Nickname
    Website

    Each entry can be duplicated many times.

    The issue I see with haveing a contact app with more fields is syncing them. Google contacts itsself supports more fields but looking through the android source I don't see any more defined that just what you can see on the phone so it doesn't appear that it will sync the data.

    I'd like one for birthday and facebook. I know if I add a birthday to google it will sync back to my phone. But, I can't change it on the phone, and I don't sync my google contacts to my phone. The HTC Sense contacts app is awesome sauce, too bad I can't just rip it out of the sense rom and adb push it to my phone.
