Contacts not available

Hi I just got an I Phone 5 and my contacts and aps are not transferring onto this phone from I Tunes when I try and restore from back up. Has anyone any ideas? I backed uo my old phone 2 weeks ago.

Your apps are contained in an iTunes backup.  They should be in your iTunes library and can be transferred to your new phone by syncing with iTunes.  If they aren't, connect your old phone to iTunes, click on the name of your phone, then go to File>Devices>Transfer Purchases to add them.  If you don't have your old phone, you'll have to redownload them http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519.
As for your contacts, if you don't have them backed up anywhere else your only option is to try restoring to your backup again or sync them from your old phone to a supported program on your computer (such as Outlook, Windows Contacts or Mac Address Book/Contacts).

  • Iphone contacts "not available" to car phonebook after messing around with Outlook.pst file names and backups. Iphone4 connects to car though and other phones connect properly.

    iphone contacts "not available" to car phonebook after messing around with Outlook.pst files, names and backups, on my ms XP 2003 laptop. I substituted a much smaller new Personal Folder -Contacts File, with a smaller list of phone numbers (4 only as a test) which successfully synced to the iPhone 4. The iPhone connects to the Skoda Octavia HandsFreeSystem OK (Bluetooth works fine), but now iPhone wont load the new Contacts as it did originally. However a family Nokia (never messed with) can connect properly. So must be the iPhone or more likely an Outlook.pst \ Contacts problem. Ideas?

    After fiddling a little more, the following fixed my corrupted outlook.pst file:
    1) I made a backup
    2) In outlook under file, I exported the calendar to excel
    3) In outlook under file, I imported the calendar back to outlook
    And voila, it worked.

  • Synchronization-Contacts (not available)

    Long-time BB user. Curve 8530. Desktop Software 5.0 Bundle 1596.Have been a successful user of software since release. Sync calendar and contacts from Outlook 2010.Generally, one-way sync from computer to device. Sync calendar and contacts separately.  Have about 1,000 contacts in Outlook 2010 Contacts. Tried to sync Contacts last night and today - indicates Contacts(not available)  in the Select Organizer Data to Synchronize ("gray'd out, option to select not available).
    First time this has happened.  How can I get the Contacts option active to sync?
    Last time I sychronized each of Calendar and Contacts prior to yesterday, Wednesday, February 20, 2013, was Monday, February 18, 2013.
    Appreciate some help, guidance and direction.  R, Marathon04

    Hello Marathon04 and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
    Sorry to hear you're having an issue syncing your Contacts.
    Have you recently added an email account, such as Gmail or Yahoo and enabled wireless Contact sync? 
    If you reboot by pulling the battery then reinsert it, do you get the option to configure the Contacts? 
    It would be recommended you upgrade your BlackBerry Desktop Software to the latest version. You can download it from www.blackberry.com/desktop and once updated see if you're able to configure your Contacts for sync.
    Thanks!

  • "Available" contacts NOT available

    Why is it that my contacts that say are available are actually NOT available?  Whenever I log in it's the same set of people that are said to be available.

  • Q10 contacts not available to BMW Bluetooth system....​..........

    I have a (roughly) four month old Q10.  When I originally paired it to my MINI Bluetooth system, it worked fine and my contacts were available in the MINI's display dialog.
    A couple weeks ago, I added a Microsoft Hosted Exchange Server email account to the Q10's account list.  From that point forward (give or take) the only data displayed in the MINI's phone book display was the corresponding phone number for the contact.  No other data.
    A couple days ago, I acquired a new BMW X5.  The MINI and BMW Bluetooth systems are very similar (both BMW systems) and I'm still experiencing the same problems.  Nothing but the phone number is displayed in the X5 dialog.
    Anyone else have a similar experience?
    Thanks

    I have made progress on my original issue, but it took some time to figure things out.
    The problem on my Q10 started while it was still connected to the MINI that I was driving at the time.  After the software update that was downloaded to the device, around early September sometime, the MINI Bluetooth display began showing only numbers, no associated names.  Since I was about to trade the car, I ignored the problem.
    I did try syncing the phone with BB Link on two different computers (one office, one home office), but only wound up with two duplicate contact lists on the device.
    When I acquired the X5 on October 1st and paired the phone, same display issues.  So I contacted RIM tech support and spent about an hour sitting in the vehicle, trying different actions, to no avail.
    Being kind of fed up with the problem, and all the time it was using up, I responded with the usual email message to the open case log with my usual "since you can't fix the problem, thanks for the brick" dialog.
    RIM responded with a detailed message advising me to do a security wipe (after backing up of course) on the Q10, then add back my Microsoft Hosted Exchange email account credentials.
    This fixed the problem.  I have not reentered some of my other email accounts, which I thought might have a negative effect.  Since most of my correspondence and calendar are on the Hosted Exchange account, I'm in pretty good shape and don't want to do anything to screw it up again.

  • TS3367 Contact not available

    I own an iphone 5. The facetime on my phone is not working. Every time I try to make a video call it just shows that 'the person is not available for facetime' even though she actually is. I wasn't having this problem before, been having it only for the last week. What should I do to rectify this problem? Thank you.

    Try a reset: Hold down the home button along with the sleep/wake button until you see the apple, then let go. If this doesn't work, try Settings > General > Reset > Reset network settings

  • "Import contacts" not available?

    Hi,
    we got a new Exchange 2013-setup running and customers are asking were to find the import contacts function in OWA. We did nothing related to this on the servers, no change in config, nothing. There's an old thread on the forums that tells this function
    is available for Office365 only, the online help of OWA 2013 doesn't mention this in any way.
    See http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/de2424a4-6c34-4bab-88aa-5a36010941c0/how-to-make-import-contacts-available
    Could anybody please help me?
    Kind regards,
     Norbert

    Hello Norbert,
    That feature seems available in Office 365 OWA interface only, not on in-premise Exchange 2013 bits...

  • CallConnector public contacts not available

    Hi All,
    I have a query regarding Cisco Call Connector version: 2.01.012, file version: 1.1.56.12203. My request is in relation to Outlook and its contact management.
    Personal contacts are detected and used perfectly, however we have a public contacts group located under “other contacts” this contains 4 thousand contacts used by our employees and regularly updated by multiple different users. Is there any way for CallConnector to see these contacts?
    I’ve checked all the menus many times without any luck. Is this something which can be synced with CallConnector without the drastic and messy task of merging the public file with my own?
    Thank you in all in advanced, Daniel.

    I spoke to TAC about this. It looks like its not possible in the current release.
    There is a method to import the public contacts into your private directory however as this contains 4k + entries its not really a feasible option.

  • Random "Contact not available sound" happens

    I recently re-downloaded my skype since the other version would crash when I went to change my profile picture, after Skype was re-downloaded, a new sound I've never heard before kept popping up.
    **To hear it for yourself, google up "beyond the beep - skype ui sounds", click the first suggestion (it should be first, if not, just look for the googled name since they're the same) n scroll down till you see the "Skype - Contact Unavaliable" playable sound.**
    I haven't added anyone recently, I haven't searched for contacts recently, and that sound just pops up at random times, I don't know how to get rid of it, it's been happening for about.. 3 days now. If it's just a bug, fine, but if it's something else - and someone has a soulution, I'd love to try it out.. this sound just annoys me while gaming. Thanks!

  • Defaul Contacts not available

    Hi,
    I dont get the Default Contats option on my Nokia E 63 .I cheked under  Menu>Communication>Options > Settings . 
    Please help.

    Could it perhaps be that the email address in entered in the wrong field in some of your contacts? Open one of the contacts that you can't find under the email app, tap the icon to edit it and then make sure that the email address is entered under "Email".

  • ICloud you have the ability to NOT format phone numbers of contacts; this ability is not available on the contacts of iPhone. If I set-up a phone number in iCloud with NO parenthesis, ex. 123- 456-7899, then this format should be available on the iPhone

    In iCloud you have the ability to NOT format phone numbers of contacts; this ability is not available on the contacts of iPhone. If I set-up a phone number in iCloud with NO parenthesis, ex. 123- 456-7899, then this format should be available on the iPhone contact.

    That is correct is doesn't. Standardized formatting of phone numbers in the iOS app is more important because it supports contact from a variety of locations (gmail, hotmail, etc.). iCloud doesn't (not directly).

  • When a contact tries to call me on FaceTime, they are told I'm not available. In settings, it's turned on and I can call them with no problem immediately after they've tried calling me. Any ideas?

    Facetime tells my contacts I'm not available. My FaceTime is turned on in settings and  I'm able to FaceTime them immediately after they've tried calling me. Any ideas what I'm missing? 

    Try going to settings and turning FaceTime off, then back on again.  A hard reset may also help(hold down the power button and the home button together until you see the Apple logo)

  • Wireless Synchroniz​ation in Desktop contact list properties is by default showing "Not Available"​, Not able to change also

    In my Blackberry 8520 - Curve model, Wireless Synchronization in Desktop contact list properties (Go to Contacts, select options, select Desktop) is by default showing "Not Available" and not allowing to change also. My other colleagues are having the options.
    My basic issue is that Outlook contact details are not getting syncronized with Blackberry. I believe this is the root cause for the same. Please guide to resolve the issue.
    with best regards,

    Hey pratiktnm,
    Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
    Thanks for the question.
    Are you setup on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server?  With the Desktop service book appearing it seems you were on one.  If you are still on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, I would suggest creating a full backup with BlackBerry Desktop Software: www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB33505
    Then proceed with a security wipe by going to Options>Security>Security Wipe and then contact your network service provider to generate a new Enterprise Activation password.  Then proceed with the enterprise activation by going to Options>Advanced Options>Enterprise Activation.
    Once the activation is completed, test out the wireless synchronization of the contacts.
    Let me know if you have any more questions.
    Cheers.
