    Hi there,

    Long time reader, first time poster :D I have a quick query.

    I already have a contact set up for me in my address book, but I cannot see how to link this contact to my "My Contact Card", or to quickly copy over this information to the "My Contact Card".

    Am I missing something really simple, or do I have to manually copy all the contact details within my phone.

    I did search for a solution to this, couldn't see anything.

    Thanks in advance

    What do you by my "My Contact Card"? Do you mean the HTC favourites widget that comes with SenseUI?

    If so go in contacts and choose contact you want to include as favourite. When favurite comes up on screen press menu then from the options choose the one with the word "add" below and person with a heart. They are now included in your favourites and appear in the widget.

    If that is not what you are after can you explain a bit more please.

    He means he has him self listed as a contact already, but he wants to move the information from that entry to his contact card (The top entry when you open the People app).


    I'm not really sure what to suggest short of copy + pasting each bit of information individually.

    I have the same problem. There must be an easier way to do it than copy & paste bit by bit!

    With Android 2.1 you can choose a contact to use as your contact card and you can link (Merge) contacts. I think in 1.5 you'll have to resort to copying the details manually.

    I can't find the option to set a contact as my contact card. Would you mind give us a bit more details on how to do it? Thanks.

    Well I don't see it now either but I'm sure after I did a wipe to install Villain (so I had no contact card) it gave me the option to choose a contact to use.
