Not all contacts sync with gmail. How can i set Z10 to save new contacts in gmail contacts by default?

hello,

 

I find something very incomfortable with the Z10. It appears to be a great phone but has lot of "missed" things when comming to software.


For example, I want to keep all my contacts in gmail contacts also. I added account for mail, calendar and contacts the gmail.com address, I selected to sync every 15 minutes. Then I went to contacts settings and selected to show only gmail and sim contacts (so it's enabled, yes).

 

The problem is, I have about 340 contacts in gmail contacts. I can see them in my phone, I can see them in gmail also. On the phone however I have 368 contacts. 340 from gmail and another 28 are the ones I added newly, in the Z10. Those are saved in Z10 phone memory. They are not sync with gmail at all. All new contacts which I save are saved in phone, not gmail. I can't sync them.

 

Any option to make contacts to save directly in Gmail by default? If I remove the gmail account from Z10, I can see only the 28 contacts on phone memory. How can I make them all to sync and everytime I add a contact I want to add it to gmail also... help will be highly appreciated. thanks in advance!

Easy.

 

Open your Settings (swipe down from the top bezel) > Accounts.

At the bottom of the screen, touch the "defaults" icon and set the gmail account as your default

Ok, that's right.

 

When you create a new entry, make sure you are in the Gmail tab of your Contacts apps.

You'll need to enter those "Local" stored contacts to your Gmail account. How many do you have stored as "local" on the #Z10?

hmmm.... You shoudl consider getting an app from AppWorld to export those, to a CSV or other type file, and then importing into your GMail account.
