    Anyone know what the length limit is for "notes" in contacts?
    I use Outlook. I have several thousand contacts, some of which include extensive notes -- phone numbers, background info on the person or organization, etc.
    Much of this is being cut off on the D4 contacts. It looks like about 300 words is the limit, which isn't much.
    I just moved from BlackBerry so I'm new to Droid and to Exchange ActiveSync.

    Suggestions would be appreciated.

    Notes limitation

    I am not certain of the exact limitation but I, too, have lengthy notes in my thousand-plus Outlook contacts. If you rotate the phone for landscape view, it will display a several more characters than it does in portrait view. You may notice that when you sync outlook to gmail, the contact notes sync over in their entirety.

    Hopefully ICS allows unlimited characters.

    Samsung Galaxy S7 Contacts
    Any notes > 1000 characters are truncated, this syncs back to google contacts and to outlook contacts results in permanent loss of all data > 1000 characters.
    It is extremely frustrating to permanently lose data from contacts without warning.

    I have tried different contact/Dialer Apps.
    Currently using:
    Ready Contacts + Dialer
    Ready Communication
    I thought this had fixed the issue as all notes were visible. However on EDIT the problem returned.

    I am trialing now
    Contact Editor Free
    Marten Gajda
    This weird program jumps in when the edit button is pushed and seems to take care of the problem.
    Kind of scary.
    This is a very frustrating issue.

    Would appreciate any other users feedback suggestions.
