Samsung Note 3 erasing contact info for random contacts - not all contacts.

My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has begun dropping contacts from my phone list.  I will receive a text from a phone number and realize it is someone who was in my Favorite List and is now removed from contact list completely. Today three people that I call, message or email frequently were simply gone from my phone.   This happens intermittently and is random.    I believe it started after last update when other problems emerged. To stop phone from overheating I had to remove the cover.  I also had to remove my 32 Gb data storage card in order to get phone working properly.   Has anyone else had random contacts erased?   I've read about cases where all contacts were removed but my problem is different.   Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me solve this problem.

    brianna8500, sorry to hear about your trouble with the Note 3. Is the phone still over-heating? We want to make sure that doesn't become a bigger problem for you. Please advise.
There can be several possible causes to contacts disappearing. The simplest possible solution is to go to contacts and press the menu button. Select contacts to display and select all. Do the contacts return?
The second most likely cause is the software source backing up the information.  What software do you use to back up your contacts? Do you back up with more than one application. This may lead us to the best answer for you.

    You are right, Adobe does not support CS5 because it is no longer sold.
    Simply download the trial version of CS5 from this Adobe web site and input your serial number.

  • Publisher name in Item info for PDF is not displayed

    Hi All,
    Publisher name in Item info for PDF is not displayed (shows; unkown publisher) in Adobe Digital Editions. The Adobe Acrobat Professional does not have "Publisher" field to add Publisher name; it facilitates user to provide "Title", "Author", "Subject" and "Keywords" into the Document Properties (Ctrl+D)
    Some one please guide, to get Publisher name in "item info" for PDF in Adobe Digital Editions.
    Cheers
    Vikas

    For PDF the Publisher name comes only from the encryption information that is included when a PDF file is packaged for use by Adobe Content Server.  If this information was not included at packaging time there is no end user method for adding it in after the fact.

  • I have an IPhone 4 and usually have no problem texting.  However, a friend got a new Samsung phone and is not receiving my texts.  I've checked all contact info and it's correct.  Any insight?

    I have an IPhone 4 and have no problem sending texts usually.  A friend got a new Samsung and is NOT receiving my texts.  Contact info has been confirmed as correct.  Any suggestions or insight?

    Thank you for being patient with a "beginner" :-) I have now realized that I had no understanding of how iCloud would affect things.
    Calendar: On the iPhone I have set the default calendar to "From my PC" and now things are working ok. I have done the same on the iPad and this is also working ok. I accept that to keep things in sync I have to connect (by USB) to the PC but this is ok.
    Contacts: I was about to make the equivalent changes regarding Contacts and have done so on the iPhone only to find that there is no "From my PC" on the iPad.
    Any suggestions/help would be much appreciated.
    Would I be better off just getting rid of iCloud and going back to USB sync every now and then. This used to be fine for me. Perhaps I have been making things difficult by mixing iCloud with a non-iCloud device (the W7 PC).
    Anyway, once again, many thanks for your patience.

  • Contact info for different contacts is showing up in wrong contact person's fields!

    Recently switched from mobileme to iCloud. Now, not only do old (formerly deleted) contacts show up on my iphone & ipad, but a lot of the contact information seems to have randomly merged with each other. So that for my contact Ash, it shows her phone number and a different contact's address and email address!
    How did this happen and how can I fix this? Different info for different contacts is showing up in wrong contact person's fields! Random information is showing up all over the place, so that in order to fix it manually, I'd have to scroll one by one on my phone and then try to figure out if the random incorrect contact info still shows up for the contact it belongs to. I'd rather not have to do this!
    * my iPad & iPhone have iCloud, not my macbook.

    I have Verizon and I tried the *228 thing and it didn't help

  • CCX 7 ENH Scripting - Set Contact Info For Closed Hours

    When calls come in after hours or on weekends, how should the script be configured so the call is not marked abandoned?  I know that after the Closed step I can Set Contact Information to handled and it will be reflected in the Historical Reports, but doesn't this skew the statistics when we are really interested in what is happening during open hours?   I have looked at a number of sample scripts and docs but I can't find anything related to what I am trying to figure out.

    Hi,
    Set Contact Info Step:
    Use the Set Contact Info step to modify the context information associated with a contact. You can use
    this step at the begining of the script to mark the contact as handled in the following scenarios: redirect,
    transfer, terminate, and abandon. The default value for all of these attributes is true.

  • HT5887 Air Drop does not transmit Contact info located in the Notes Section of the Contact.  How does one transfer All Fields of a contact record?

    Transferred a Contact from my iPhone 5S/ios7 to my iPad Air.  Successfully transferred the Contact including all ph numbers, email addresses, and street addresses.   But -- it did NOT transfer all the text in the "Notes" section of the original Contact.  Why?   Some of my Contacts also have a photo in the same Notes Section.  I don't want to sync the devices via the cloud because I just want selected Contacts.  Sharing via email does the same thing - no Notes.  Only way I've found is to Sync with Outlook Contacts on my Windows XP and Windows7 PCs.

    So far it appears Microsoft's Outlook program is the only contact manager capable of "Forwarding" a Contact record that is all inclusive of all the data in the Contact including the Notes data.
    While some may use the Notes field to store "secret or confidential" information...I've used it to store more mundane Notes that are not NOT confidential or sensitive in any way.  Moreover....only want to "Share" (Microsoft calls it "Forward") with my own multiple devices.  The "Notes" data might include a picture, another type of image, a map, a URL, etc.  I and the rest of the MS Windows user world began building Contacts in Outlook so long ago it is not practical to switch to iOS-based personal info management software unless it allows complete conversions or "Sharing" as Apple calls it.
    Microsoft figured this out years ago by allowing the user to choose whether to include Notes or not when "Forwarding" any individual Outlook Contact Record.  It sounds like we need Microsoft Outlook for iOS like we have MS Outlook for MAC.  With thousands of Contacts in MS Outlook 2010 I can't do without the Notes data in my files.  And it isn't practical to use a syncing function when I only need 10-20% of my overall contacts on some of my iOS devices.

  • What is an app i can use for the lockscreen that has my personal contact info for ipad

    Hi I intend to keep my Ipad at home so I need a lockscreen for the kids not to go on it but if it did get misplaced I want my info to pop us when someone tries to access it

    Unfortunetally, No and no.  Apple TV is a closed API so developers are right now unable to create an app that is very compatible to connect to Apple TV.  There is also no remote app on the Mac App Store. 
    Let me know if this solves your questions or if you have any others,
    Thanks,

  • HT201287 How do I share contact info over SMS while viewing a contact?

    I am using iPhone 5S. While viewing a contact information, I would like to send the contcat info over SMS.

  • Available Space in 'Get Info' for HDD does not match with the files

    I have a 75G HDD on this Macbook. The 'Get Info' for the HDD says I only have 1G of space available. However, when I go item by item in the HDD, and total the sizes myself, it only totals to 30G of space being used.
    Anyone heard of this problem before? Are there files hiding somewhere? How can I get more useful space on this HDD?

    Hi and welcome to Discussions,
    use something like Disk Inventory; JDisk Report or OmniDisk Sweeper to really find out what is consuming your disk space.

    OSX hides quite a lot of system files from the user for the sake of safety.
    What to delete and what not is your choice.

  • Get Info for alias does not show "Original" location

    When I Get Info for an alias, no "Original" location shows. What must I do to see the original file location?

    In addition to finding the location listed under the "General" pane of the info window (you might have to click the disclosure arrow), you can also go right to the original—meaning show it in its Finder window at the original location—by right clicking the alias and selecting "Show Original."

  • Contact app: Change from "History" to "all contacts"?

    Question that I can't seem to figure out.
    When clicking on "contact" app.
    Sometimes it will show "history"
    Sometimes it will shop "all contacts"
    How do I switch between those?
    thanks

    In reviewing your post it appears as if the contact are joined in error. If contact information was joined in error, the information can be separated back into individual contacts. Try this! I have provided some steps below to assist you. 
    From the home screen, touch the applications tab (located on the bottom of the screen).
    Touch Contacts. 
    Touch the Contacts tab then touch the desired contact.
    Touch Menu.
    Touch Edit contact.
    Touch Menu.
    Touch Separate.
    Touch OK.

  • HT1369 new version of itunes will not load getting info that itunes is not downloaded correctly

    have had itunes for several yrs attempted to download newest version but getting message that itunes is not downloaded correctly and new version will not download

    well nobody bothered to give me a hint on what to do, maybe because the problems with the new version of iTunes are really a lot, there is an enormous amount of people out there that have all sort of different problems including mine  so I have decided to return to the previous version which works fine and wait untill the apple people come up with a decent product ....
