Works well for me. The first time I put in the second number, it made it into a "Home" number, but when I edited the contract again and changed it to "Mobile" again, then it works just like it's supposed to. What version if iOS are you running? I'm running iOS 8.4 (I need to update to 8.4.1) on my iPhone 5S. The only thing that I can think of is a bug in ...

Here's a way that works effectively, but can be time consuming, so just warning all you guys. First, you go to iCloud.com and sign in. Go to your Contacts, and select all of them by pressing Ctrl + A. Then, you press that little gear button in the lower left-hand corner and click Export vCard. Now that you've downloaded your vCard file with all your ...

If you have only an iCloud account, it is probable that the contacts that don't appear there are local i.e. On your phone only. To upload them, do the following: Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars Select your iCloud account Find the "Contacts" switch and turn it off; it will ask if you want to keep the contacts on your phone or delete them ...

It's likely Apple can support you with iCloud if your account has a problem. Before calling them, though you will want to check and see under the Settings app what you have configured under Mail, Contacts, Calendars. It's entirely likely your iCloud contacts are exactly what https://www.icloud.com/#contacts shows. Make a backup of the phone to a computer ...

Contacts app have groups of contacts, ie. Google contacts, Hotmail contacts, Facebook contacts and then iCloud contacts. To see the different groups, go to Contacts, at the very top you will see Groups, just tick iCloud and untick the rest. Now scroll down to the bottom and see if you have 500 contacts or 203. If you have 203, it means that all your ...

You most certainly can. Go to your Desktop and press Command + Shift + G, paste this: ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/Sources ...and then click Go. You will find that there are folders with very long names. In each of these folders there will be a folder called Metadata, in which you will find those contact files. You can temporarily ...

Generally speaking, please include hardware and software information, e.g. iPhone 4s, iOS 7.1.2, when asking questions as not all features are available in all models and iOS versions. That said, I do not believe you have a choice, at least I don't on my iPhone in the Phone app, however I have an app on my MacBook Pro (also available for Windows) called ...

You did not state what OS X or iOS version and my reply is base on my system, MacBook Pro Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013 running OS X 10.8.5, and I don't believe you can as the date/time stamp, both created and modified, on the datastore for Contacts is constantly changing each time Contacts is opened. You can look at /Users/$USER/Library/Application ...

Mark the number you want to message as a favorite and it will get precedence over other numbers. Also, look for the blue text to indicate iMessage when you see the various options for a specific contact (email or mobile) and you'll be sure to get their messaging account as opposed to sending it to the land line. Also, as you send more and more messages, ...

So, you need a loop for each list, and another loop for each value. tell application "Contacts" set myList to value of emails of people end tell repeat with aList in myList repeat with anEmail in ...

I don't know much about the software, but it seems like Contacts Journal may do what you're looking for, with two caveats: new contacts entered in Contacts.app are not automatically imported into Contacts Journal, but it will automatically prompt you to do so, and thereafter keep the contacts sync'd contacts added directly in Contacts Journal will not ...

You likely have more than one contact "group". In your case you will want to look two places. First open the contacts app and note that using the "groups" button in the top left you will be able to 'show' a group that's not showing. That should get back the contacts that are "invisible" now. Also navigate to 'Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars' and look ...

Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > (contacts section) Default Account. (Note default account also exists in the "Calendars" section.) I personally wish Apple would let you set which group, on the fly, as you save the contact, but sadly we can only change the "default".

Go to the Contacts app and tap the little arrow circle in the top left. This will sync your contacts with iCloud and should fix your issues.

Disconnect all iCloud devices from the network (in case one is problematic) Log in to iCloud.com from a computer Select Settings web app Scroll to the bottom left Select Restore Contacts See what archives exist and then go to the contacts web app to make sure the cloud version of contacts is wrong. Optionally, export all the current contacts in case a ...

Open the Contacts app and switch to the groups page (click on "Groups" in the upper left corner). Now drag the screen down for refreshing the groups. This will also sync the contacts itself!

A few possibilities: Somewhere down the line, one of you accidentally combined and synced your contacts. You added a non-iCloud account in "Mail, Contacts, and Calendar" that contains the contacts unknowingly. You restored from a backup during setup that contained the contacts.

While appreciate this isn't the answer you likely want, it would be much better to implement groups on the server and address all the students as a single address. This is how a lot of universities and colleges I've worked with have achieved this. Modules/classes have a name/code, and this forms the basis for the email address, e.g. cs101@myuni.ac.uk It ...

Go to Settings > Phone Check that My Number is has been updated to your new number. At times when changing SIM cards, the number does not update in this area. This will cause issues like you have experienced. I recently changed carriers and experience a similar problem. See Apple Support for more information regarding swapping SIM cards.
