Offending App: Sync.Me
Awesome folder syncing app: SyncMe
Here's what we need to do.
1-star the app, explain that the app is doing this. Then, go through the reviews and +1/thumbs-up any of the reviews stating this.
It's the only way to make people aware.
edit: Also, REPORT THE APP TO GOOGLE.
I've been getting these too. I use Sync.Me. When someone calls, it opens a popup that also shows if other people reported it as spam. You have an option to block the number from the popup. Every time the number calls again, it'll auto block it. There's probably other apps that do this, I just like sync.me because it auto updates your contact pictures with social media accounts.
Try Sync.ME. I use it on my 6p and you can sync almost all of your social media accounts to your contacts, including pictures. It also has a caller ID feature, but I find it annoying. Fortunately you can just disable it and only use the app for the contact sync features only.
I use the app called Sync.Me to get all my contacts' photos from Facebook / Instagram / Google+ or Twitter. It's quite handy tbh.
EDIT: disable the Caller ID in the settings though, that's pretty annoying
I use Sync.Me it allows my to sync all my contact photos with the social media account of my choice, while also being a great Caller ID app so that i can see what numbers have been reported as spam, and allow me to report my own spam numbers and block them.
I've been using an application called Sync.ME for the past month or so, that's been able to pull the Facebook profile pictures for most of my contacts.
I've had success with Sync Me syncing from Facebook profiles weekly (or however often you want). It originally didn't have caller ID, and I find the caller ID annoying, so I turn it off, as well as disable the notifications it sends. Don't use it if you're concerned about privacy, though, as I'm pretty sure it adds you and your contact photo to its caller ID system.
Setting up my new Pixel last week, I used Sync.Me to update my phone's contact photos. Essentially, it reads the names of your existing contacts, compares them to your facebook friends, and matches up profile pictures. Is this what you're looking for?
Link: Sync.me on Play Store
You could use the Sync.ME app. It gives you caller ID, allows you to sync your contacts with your social media accounts to keep info updated, and allows you to block calls and texts from numbers that you specify.
Sync.Me app does that. It doesn't exactly satisfy your need. But it reminds every morning of the birthdays on that day. It extracts data from Facebook. But I'm not sure it helps to add them in your contacts.
I've been using Sync.ME for a couple years. Works very well. Just disable the caller id feature(unless you want it)
Also running, N6 5.1.1, so can also say it works for that for sure. :)
I had the same troubles with syncing Facebook contacts when I first got the phone in November. Ever since, I've used Sync.Me, and it's worked out great for me.
Other than that, the phone's worked out very well.
I remember a very long time ago that I had such an app, because I wanted to try out contact-syncing apps (such as SyncMe and Contacts Sync), to see how well they work.
I even remember that since it was a bit slow (took a few seconds), I made something myself.Can't find those anymore. No idea why I can't find on the Play Store, and will take a huge time to browse over the previously installed apps list on the Play Store.
So as a workaround, maybe try to export the contacts to a file, then delete them all, and then restore using this file?The reason: Exporting to a file usually don't include the photos of the contacts.
If this doesn't help, try SyncMe and do the same steps there. I remember it doesn't save the photos (because it already has a syncing feature).
There are tons of callerID apps that allow you to block calls, if nothing helps:
SyncMe, TrueCaller , ....
Thank you for your reply.
>3.not possible with stock app.
Is Sync.Me the best way to do that? I just tried it but it fails to find some of the people that I have in my friends list.
>4.I would use month calendar widget. It looks nicer and shows everything in a unique way. Syncs better with Samsung and Outlook calendars.
Just tried it but it's not working for me. I'd rather solve the issue with Samsung's calendar as it's the one used by Launcher 10 and the widget perfectly fits my layout.
>6.not possible. That's why there is the Always On Display and the Notification LED and Edge Lighting. No need, imo.
The lock button is quite difficult to reach with my thumb, that why I'd like the double-tap to sleep on the soft touch buttons. Does the AOD use much battery? It's the first thing I disabled.
>6.Use Wallpaper Changer. That's the name of the app. It is a faux-live wallpaper app that you can set to manually change the wallpaper or automatically change the wallpaper. I've been using it for YEARS and it has never let me down.
Are you talking about this one? I'm getting a lot of results and I don't know which one to pick.
>9.Tasker. I don't use it but I can see it's usefulness. Oh! And IFTTT. Great automation here as well
I'm already using IFFT actually, but I don't see an option to deal with mobile data. It seems like that root is needed to turn mobile data off. Does Tasker have a Play Store demo? I'd like to avoid manually installing APKs.
Thank you again and sorry for the long reply!
The contact sync feature from Facebook was torn out awhile back for some unknown reason. I too miss that deep integration that WP had.
Best I've found has been Sync.Me. Link up your Facebook and Twitter profiles, and let 'er buck. Pretty stable and great app I've found.
SnycMe has a "Spam" list in which you can add numbers you wish to block. In addition you can sync all your contacts with the web and it will automatically uses their social network profile picture against the contact. The same as Android used to do with facebook. TBH it's pretty freaky sometimes in that I was talking to someone I had never met in the pub, took their number and when I added it, it automatically populated their name and photo.
Te recomiendo Sync.ME, empezó como una app para sincronizar los DPs de tus contactos con Facebook pero ahorita trae identificador de llamadas (si algún contacto tiene instalada la app y tiene un número que tú no, automáticamente detecta el nombre) y el bloqueador de números (Igual "comunitario" en donde te avisa que cierto número fue marcado como spam).
I use Sync.ME. You can set it to block anonymous callers, and it also does caller ID functions including social media checks of incoming numbers (if you so choose).
Try using Sync.Me. Great app and work with all social media so you can choose which picture you want to use for your contact. It also has an annoying caller ID feature, but you can just disable it and use it for photo sync only.
Sync.Me is a great way to pull contact pictures from your social media sites. It has a few other features, but I don't even bother to use them
Sync.me is pretty good for that. It also syncs up peoples Facebook pictures and details to their contact number which is handy. I think they do it for twitter and instagram now too.
I've tried a number of them. From my experience Sync.me was the best but I also liked UberSync
I use Sync.Me. You can connect with FB, G+, and Twitter.
I use Sync.ME
I've used Sync.ME for a long while, does it really well for me.
I use Sync.me to sync contact photos from FB
I use this one. Not sure it's what you're looking for ? [link]
[link] works well for me.
Sync.ME seems to work. Just disable the extra crap
Sync.me does the trick for me!
I use sync.me, works wel
So I think other apps should work too for you.
Apps such as Sync.Me, ACR , BoldBeast , ...
Sync.Me does this too: [link]
Sync.Me is what you're after, does rootless photo contact sync for a bunch of social networks :)
I think the best answer you'll get, which is what I use is the app called Sync.ME
Sync.Me will do this very well.
Used this for my Note 7. Synced my contacts and then removed it.
sync.me definitely works without root. I've been using it for years and have never rooted any of my devices.
I use this app.
It's easy sync your contacts social media photos. I just uninstall once I'm done.
I had to do this just 2 days ago! SyncMe did the trick.
Well, wrong link. I'll report it back.
Here's the link
Sync.Me. This might help you out.
I've been using sync.ME to get photos from Facebook and Linkedin.
Have a try on this app:
There are plenty of such apps. Just search for "CallerID".
Here are those that I'm familiar with:
If you don't want the apps to really block (meaning hang up), but just mute the call, it's in the settings.
There are many apps out there that allow this.
Just search "callerID".
What I'm familiar with is mostly "Sync.Me" and "TrueCaller":
Each has its own features.
Sync.Me is more about contacts. TrueCaller is more for the huge DB of who's who.
Both have the feature you want.
For syncing with various social networks (Facebook and Instagram might not work in some countries though), you can use Sync.Me app :
Not that currently this app requires to stay being installed as long as you wish the contacts to be synced, because it only adds the information (and make it the primary one), and not replaces what you have. This has advantages (in case of bugs, won't mess with your contacts and you can remove the app) and disadvantages (changes won't affect Google account so you can't see them on PC, for example). The app has plenty of contacts/phone related features though.
If you have a rooted device, you can try this tiny app to sync with WhatsApp:
Try the sync.me [link]
Forgot to add the link
What's the difference between this and just having Sync.ME (PlayStore link) installed?
Try Sync.Me. It links them to G+ as well, for... all your friends that use G+.
I use Sync.ME to get Facebook pictures.
Sync.me still works for syncing FB contact photos
I have used Sync.Me in the past
You can probably force a sync with SYNC.ME
you can try Sync.ME for linking your contacts facebook for profile pictures
I use sync.me
