where is my contact list?
« on: December 14, 2012, 06:31:38 AM »
Where is my contact list in gmail. I dont see one on my nexus 7 gmail app.
tapped everything already. All websites have info about the problem in web browsers not in the
android/nexus  gmail app.
The upper left corner icon does not make a drop down with contacts like the web browser.
Synching does not help.
typing the contact in the TO field does not bring it up either. >:(

Go to your apps and tap on People/Contacts and you will find your Google Contacts. If they are not displayed, check the settings and make sure you are set to display Gmail contacts. When composing a new email in the Gmail app, as you type in the address suggestions from your contact list will be displayed for you to choose from.

Just me in the contacts list. I click the icon in upper right corner> contacts to display> ALL CONTACTS has the DOT.
no option at all for displaying gmail contats.
Tried Custom instead of ALL, selected every DOT.

No change. Gmail app does not suggest anything when typing the recipient

I dont know how I found it. There is a Sync icon that looks like the Settings Icon.
Contacts was not checked. Do you know how to get to the Sync from the Settings menu ?
I need to be able to tell others how to do this , there are lots of questions about this
in a lot of other forums. I would like to beable to tell them how to fix it.
Thanks for your fast reply and help.

Go to Settings > Accounts and Sync and you will see your accounts as well as an option to add accounts. Long pressing on an account name gives you access to options for the account, where you can set what you want to sync as well as the ability to remove the account.

Absolutly, I should have come here first!!! A google search reveals too many addressing the browser
version and the mobile folks askiin the question were still at a loss.
I have always gotten fast replies and good info  on this forum. even if the info was not what I wanted too hear,
it was  accurate ;)

I very happy with my nexus, thanks to everyone involed in keeping this forum up
