I am a new Droid owner with problems both getting Contacts to function and finding information on the default Contacts app. I cannot find anything other than superficial information on the Google site and they do not answer queries. Ugh!
I use a contact manager on my PC and sync software to sync that contact database with contacts in a gmail account. That seems to work and both show 1723 contacts. This then automatically synced contacts with my Droid, but only ended up with 1611 contacts on the Droid. I wiped gmail and the Droid and reloaded. Same missing contacts. Any idea what is happening? Which forum here should I discuss this?
My guess is that the Android Contacts app is not compatible with gmail contacts. For some reason contacts are defined differently in each, but I cannot find out any detailed information about what info should be attached to a contact or why they would be treated differently on each platform. They appear to be minimally documented. Where is there detailed documentation on the Contacts App?
I believe that multiple gmail contacts are being merged in the Android contacts and some information is being discarded. It is difficult to persue this without informaton.
I am new to Android and smartphones, but am familiar with Palm devices, computers, and data syncing. Any help is appreciated.
