Google's Gesture Search won't search my Contacts List
I'm new to both the Droid and this forum -- and trying hard to learn from each.
I loaded the free "Gesture Search" app onto my new phone, after the sales guy showed me how cool it was. BUT -- it searches everything on the phone EXCEPT my contacts list -- which I why I want it in the first place.
I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling 4 times now; removed battery; called Verizon, AND the sales guy, who can't figure it out either.
If anyone has any light to shed on this, I'd love to know your thoughts! I need to go out of town soon and would love to have this function working.
Thanks so much! I'm really looking forward to learning off this great board.
P.S. I did do several searches of the forum re: this issue, and couldn't find anything about the Gesture app.... Thanks!
The Mystery was in an Error when my Contacts Transferred
Well... it took 48 hours, but, I think my new phone works now. :-)
It turns out that when I transferred my (long!) contacts list from Backup Assistant to my Gmail, and then they sync'ed to my new Droid phone, SOMEHOW the list of phone numbers was screwed up (sorry, I don't know the technical term), so each contact was listed in my new phone as "NOTES", NOT as a regular-looking phone number.
That is why I was unable to make calls directly from the contact list, and also why the Gesture app never worked, either.
I did the list export/sync 4 times myself, and the nice salesman with the wireless dealer even did it twice this morning on a store laptop, and, each time it was wrong -- the contacts stayed listed as notes, not numbers. He then imported a few of my contacts to HIS personal Droid phone, and they were also corrupted, and showed as Notes. So -- we knew it wasn't just my phone.
He and I were both out of ideas -- so then I went to a Verizon store to ask them to directly move my numbers from my old phone to the new phone. I just wanted my phone to work! But, they tried the import/sync ONE LAST TIME, and for some unknown reason, it worked.
No one has ANY idea why it did what it did, but, I am happy to have it working.
Thanks so much for the replies here. I look forward to learning about this cool phone now!!! :-)
