Contacts disappearing under ‘Speed dial’ in my OnePlus6

The speed dial section in my One Plus 6, until now had a list of contacts who I used to call recently and/or contacts who I used to call on a frequent basis, never used to be a speed dial contact that I had manually added.

But now, all of a sudden, it’s empty. What can be the reason? Is there a good chance my phone is hacked?

Can someone please me

Gnome Calendar and Contacts have generic Gnome application icons in the launcher

I just did a “minimal” install of Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 and everything’s working well for the most part.

However, after installing Gnome Calendar and Contacts, they only have generic Gnome application icons (looks like a purple diamond with a gear inside). Other apps I have installed, such as Evolution, correctly display their icons.

I assume I’m missing a set of icons or perhaps some part of a theme, but I’m not very familiar with how this works, so I’m not clear on what I need to install.

Thanks for any pointers.

How to remove duplicate contacts from Google Contacts and Phone app?

I’m using stock android on ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 with Android 8.1.0.
When I import contacts from .vcf in contacts app it’s fine under my account there are single numbers but under “contacts from all accounts” have three copies of single number though having only one account signed in. And in phone app that copies are visible and not from my account.
So how to get rid of this?

Changing WhatsApp contacts picture

I have a picture linked to my friends number, saved in my phones contacts. This picture originally defaulted onto his Whatsapp account (which are linked), because he doesn’t have a Whatsapp photo set.

One day this suddenly vanished and I can’t seem to figure out how to put it back.

I found a previous thread (Android Enthusiasts: How to change someone’s profile picture in WhatsApp?) but I get an error when following the solution.

In summary, it says to rename the photo to the person’s phone number and then save this picture file in the following location: /sdcard/WhatsApp/Profile Pictures, overriding the existing file.

Firstly I don’t have that location on my phone. Instead I have the following location: InternalStorage/Media/WhatsApp Profile Photos.

Secondly there are no files in this folder.

Thirdly, when I do put this new file into that location, nothing happens.

Any help would be much appreciated! 🙂

How can you share a CRM-like phone book with Google Contacts?

We’d like to share contacts stored in Google Contacts with the entire company. We have 1,000+ client records and phone numbers that we’d like everyone in the company to have access to.

We’ve been using a traditional CRM for this, but we’re doing sales automation in another system now, so it doesn’t seem worth it to maintain this CRM just for contact management. Plus, we have a bunch of systems that integrate with Google Contacts, so we’d just like to share a common list of contact information there.

Is this possible?

How to sync facebook contacts with ASUS ZenFone 5Z (Android 9)?

ASUS ZenFone 5Z Android 9 and latest ZenUI

This question has been asked before, but none of the answers address what I’m seeing on my device.

I’ve added the Facebook App, and I’ve added my Facebook account, but I still don’t have the option to sync my contacts from Facebook.

When I look at my Facebook account, I see this:

The menu ellipsis on the second screen only has one item: “Sync Now” which doesn’t seem to do anything. I don’t see the options to choose what automatically syncs and what doesn’t, that are referenced in other answers.

I’ve looked through my mobile data settings, and I can’t find anything that might be preventing Facebook from using data, AND I’ve been connected to WiFi all morning. I’ve tried removing the account and uninstalling the app, and then reinstalling/re-adding, but to no avail.

A lot of the other answers (like this one: https://android.stackexchange.com/a/123271/292111) reference an item in the “Network & Internet” menu. The “Data Usage” sub-menu is supposed to have a menu ellipsis with a toggle for “Auto Sync Data” which, when turned on, causes the sync options for the Facebook account to appear on the second screen I posted above. In my case, there is no menu ellipsis in the “Data Usage” sub-menu.

My expectation is that Facebook would eventually show up as one of the contact sources in my Contacts app.

Any suggestions?

Incorrect contacts images when searching in Google Contacts

My company has its name given in each contact’s details so I can display all contacts from that company using a search query. When I do so, I see some incorrect photos or no photos at all.

When I enter search query to Google Contacts’ top “Search” box, but before I hit Enter, I see:

  • company’s logo for first contact in suggestions list,
  • no photos for remaining three contacts.

When I actually hit Enter and Google Contacts lists search results, everything is OK, i.e.:

  • all four contacts has actual photos (that I have manually uploaded).

What am I missing? Why does the suggestion list (i.e. during searching) include some weird / incorrect / no photos for suggested contacts or what is the source for images for these suggetions (i.e. first contact displays company’s logo correctly, but I don’t know, where it is taking it from)?
