Every time you send an email or text, or even look up a friend’s address on Google Maps, you rely on a digital list of your contacts. But just because you use it all the time doesn’t mean you treat it very well. Many of us let old numbers, needless duplicates, and unlabeled mystery addresses pile up in whatever contacts app we prefer. This makes it harder to find the information we need when we need it.

Luckily, the apps that store contact lists—we’re focusing on those from Google, Apple, and Microsoft—can help you clean up duplicates, delete contacts with missing or outdated information, and sync these changes between apps and devices. In general, to avoid having your contacts list sprawl across too many accounts, we’d recommend that you pick one of these contacts services to serve as your primary account, based on the apps and devices you rely on the most (heavy iPhone users should go through Apple, Android devotees should pick Google, and so on). Once you’ve selected a platform, use the native tools we’re about to discuss to whip your contacts in shape. Then head to the final section of this guide to make sure those cleaned-up contacts will appear across all the platforms you use.

For Apple

Have you invested in an iOS phone and a macOS computer? Then you should be using Apple’s built-in Contacts app, which will sync your information across both platforms. When you’re on another type of device, you can still access your contacts through your web browser by visiting the iCloud site. If you’re looking for advanced organization options, unfortunately, you won’t find them in this app. However, it does include basic management tools.

On iOS, you can edit an entry by selecting it and choosing Edit. The next screen lets you add, remove, and change your contact’s information, or remove that person entirely by tapping Delete Contact. To change how this information is sorted and displayed, head to the iOS Settings app and choose Contacts from the list. For example, you can toggle on the Prefer Nicknames switch to make iOS show nicknames rather than more formal monikers.

The macOS version has similar options, but it does include a clever groups feature that makes it easier to organize people. Open Contacts and select File > New Smart Group. Then pick your criteria: You might group people from the same city together, or if you use the Note field, you could pool anyone with, say, a “book club” tag. To email everyone in a smart group at once, look at the left-hand navigation menu to find the group’s entry and then right-click on it. On macOS, unlike on iOS, you can also find duplicated contacts. Select Card > Look for Duplicates to scour your contacts list for overlapping entries. If the app finds any, it asks whether you want to merge them. You can also do this manually: Click on one contact, hold down Cmd and click on another, and then choose Card > Merge Selected Cards.

Because the macOS version has more options, we recommend that you manage your contacts on your computer rather than your phone, and then let these changes sync to the iOS app. However, if you’d prefer a more comprehensive iPhone option, then you can turn to third-party apps, which offer more advanced tools for removing duplicates. We recommend Simpler, which has a free trial but costs $10 per year to unlock most of its features, such as contact backups. This app lets you merge duplicate entries with a tap, remove partial contacts (like those missing phone numbers), organize contacts into groups, and more. We also like Delete Contacts+, which lets you quickly erase batches of people at once, backs up your contacts, and identifies cards with missing information. Again, you can enjoy a free trial, but to use the contact merge feature, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $4.

For Google

If you opt to store your contacts with Google, you can access them online or through an official Android app. Alternately, you can import your Google contacts into iOS: Go to iOS Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Add Account > Google. In the final section of this guide, we’ll talk more about how to combine all your contacts in one place.

Of Google Contacts’ features, the duplicates finder is probably the most useful. To use it, visit the web interface, click Duplicates on the left side of the page, and then choose which duplicated contacts you’d like to combine and click the Merge button next to them. If the duplicate you’re considering doesn’t show up, then find any two or more contacts, tick the boxes next to them, and click the Merge button (icon of two arrows meeting) in the top right corner.

The Android app is even smarter at managing your contacts. Hit the menu button (three horizontal lines) on the top left, choose Suggestions, and Google will suggest duplicates to merge and out-of-date information you might want to update. It will also look at people you’re often in touch with via phone and recommend that you add them as new contacts. If you’d prefer to deal with duplicates on your own, you can merge them manually. Long-press on one contact in the main list, tap on one or more others, hit the three vertical dots in the top right corner, and choose Merge from the menu that pops up. In addition, the Android app lets you organize your contacts more efficiently. Open Menu > Settings to sort contacts by first name or last name, or to show or hide phonetic names.

On both the app and the website, you can organize your contacts through labeled groups. Edit a contact by selecting the pen icon. Then, while you’re in editing mode, click the three vertical dots on the top right (on the web) or the Labels drop-down menu in the middle of the screen (on Android). Through these labels, you can sort your contacts for easier access or send group emails in Gmail.

Speaking of which, Gmail is tightly tied up with Google’s contacts management. People that you have emailed but haven’t added to your contacts appear online under the Other heading. To avoid having all those addresses pile up, you can change this default. Go to the Gmail website and click the cog icon on the right, followed by Settings > I’ll add contacts myself (you can find the latter option under Create contacts for auto-complete).

If you’d like more help, you can also find third-party apps for managing your Google contacts. On Android, Simpler (also, as mentioned earlier, available on iOS) makes the process of merging contacts and spotting duplicates a little easier, and throws in contact backups as well. The pricing is the same as on iOS (free to try but $10 a year for most features). We also like Contacts Optimizer, which can erase duplicate entries, spot entries with missing information, and more. It’s free to try and costs $2 for some of the more advanced features, like merging multiple contacts.

For Microsoft

Unlike Apple and Google, Microsoft doesn’t have a popular mobile operating system, so the changes you make to your Microsoft contacts will not affect your phone. However, contacts will sync between Windows and Outlook, whether you use the latter online or as a computer app. Like Apple, Microsoft gives you few automated clean up options, but its basic editing interface is easy to manipulate.

Start with the People interface. On Outlook.com, you can select it from the master menu on the left-hand side of the page. For any existing entry, the Edit contact button will give you access to all the fields on each card. To add or delete new contacts, use the options on the toolbar on top. The Outlook app, available for Windows and macOS, has a similar set of options. Right-click and choose Edit Contact to make changes to an individual card, or use the New Contact, New Contact Group, and Delete buttons, located on the ribbon menu at the top, to tidy your contacts list.

As far as automated clean up options, Microsoft can detect potential duplicates for you to merge. On Outlook’s web interface, click Manage > Clean up contacts. On the next screen, select the contacts you want to merge from the list and then click Clean up to confirm your choice. Through the app, you don’t have automatic tools to merge or delete duplicate contacts, so you have to do this manually. First, select the contacts you want to merge from the master list. Then click the menu button (three horizontal dots) under whichever contacts appears on the display and pick Link Contacts.

In addition, Windows 10 has a built-in People app, which is another place where you can edit your Microsoft contacts list. Select any of the entries, then Edit to make changes or Find contacts to combine to merge the contact with any other item in the list.

The best aspect of the People app is the way it lets you tidy the contacts interface. First, open the app and head to the settings page by clicking the cog icon in the lower left-hand corner. Here, you can sort contacts by first versus last name, and hide those that are cluttering up the interface. To change which contacts get to show up on screen, select Filter contact list. This doesn’t edit your contacts, but it can hide, say, contacts that lack an attached phone number, or those that Microsoft pulled in from Skype. In fact, Windows automatically adds new contacts with whom you’ve chatted or emailed, which can add too many contacts entries to your list. To disable this setting, toggle off the Automatically add contacts that you have communicated with recently switch.

The other organizational tool in Microsoft’s arsenal is the groups feature. The main benefit to doing this is that you can email everyone in a list at once. To make a new group of contacts, click New > Contact list, and a dialog box will pop up. This lets you give your list a name and add contacts to it.

Using multiple contacts apps

The problem is, few of us are locked into an Apple-only, Google-only, or Microsoft-only ecosystem. It’s hard to keep your contacts list tidy when it’s spread across multiple accounts. However, the platforms try to help by letting you display contacts from multiple accounts on one screen.

For example, Apple lets you display your Google and Microsoft accounts on its contacts apps. On iOS, go to Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Add Account, and then hit either Google or Outlook.com. On macOS, open the Contacts app and choose Contacts > Add Account, followed by Google or Outlook.com. This lets you access and edit your Google or Microsoft contacts from Apple devices, and have the changes sync to the original accounts. However, it doesn’t merge these contacts with your Apple account, so you might end up with duplicates that you cannot merge. Plus, if you try to access your contacts through the iCloud website, only Apple contacts will show up.

Through Microsoft, the People app for Windows 10 also supports multiple accounts. Click the cog icon on the lower left, then Add an account, and choose either Google or iCloud. Like with Apple, the newly imported contacts appear alongside your existing ones, but they won’t get added to your official Microsoft contact list.

Google, on the other hand, doesn’t let you manage and sync your Apple or Microsoft contacts. However, you can import these contacts to turn them into Google ones—but any changes you make after that will not sync to the original accounts. For example, to add Apple contacts to your Google account, visit the iCloud Contacts website, click the cog icon on the lower left, and hit Select All. Click the cog icon again, followed Export vCard. This creates a file that Google can import: In either the app or the website, head to the main menu and choose Import, then pick the vCard file. After importing a lot of contacts, we recommend that you find and merge duplicates, in case you had information for the same person on multiple accounts.

While we’re on the topic of multiple accounts, one of the reasons so many contacts show up on your phone is that some of these platforms automatically display contacts from third-party apps like WhatsApp and Twitter. If you want to cut down on the number of people filling your phone, then you can hide contacts from other apps. On iOS, go to Settings > Privacy > Contacts. In the Google Contacts app for Android, tap the menu button (three horizontal lines) on the top left and choose Settings > Accounts.

Keeping your contacts organized is difficult enough, but syncing them across multiple platforms can be even more frustrating. If you want to offload this chore, then try a third-party app like FullContact. Through its central hub, it will sync up to 25,000 of your contacts across up to five platforms, including the Apple, Google, and Microsoft services. However, to get this help, you’ll have to pay $100 per year.

There’s no way to instantly organize your contacts across every app and gadget—you’ll have to invest some time and effort. However, knowing how these contacts platforms work will give you a smoother experience as you clean up your contacts lists.

Is your phone contact list ready when area code 603 becomes mandatory? https://euskalabereak.net/is-your-phone-contact-list-ready-when-area-code-603-becomes-mandatory/ Fri, 22 Oct 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://euskalabereak.net/is-your-phone-contact-list-ready-when-area-code-603-becomes-mandatory/ By the end of the month, a nasty surprise will lurk in some phone calls as New Hampshire ends 74 years of contact with people in the state without using area code 603.

By the end of the month, a nasty surprise will lurk in some phone calls as New Hampshire ends 74 years of contact with people in the state without using area code 603.

This article first appeared in the Concord Monitor on October 2.

“People need to be aware instead of being caught off guard,” said Mark Doyle, director of the emergency services and communications division of the New Hampshire Department of Security. Otherwise, he said, they will hear that dreaded recording: “Your call cannot be terminated as dialed. “

As you may already know, thanks to a warning from your telephone company on October 28, the state will begin “dialing 10 digits,” in which the area code 603 must be used in front of all numbers. While it won’t be mandatory until next July, there’s no easy way to know which calls need the area code and which don’t.

So, for all intents and purposes, October 24 will be the first time since 1947, when the area codes were created, that seven digits will no longer suffice.

The change comes due to the rollout of “988” as the new national suicide hotline in July 2022. Like other three-digit emergency numbers, this will make it easier for people to ask for help.

Before the number can go into effect, however, something must be done on the existing phone numbers that start with 988; otherwise, the switched telephone network will be confused. In New Hampshire this includes hundreds of Portsmouth phone numbers, hence the need to start every call with 603.

Ten-digit dialing is also happening in other states that have a single area code, including Vermont, where the city of Troy has 988 as its central. However, this does not come to Maine, as this state has never used 988 as a prefix of a number. Massachusetts, with multiple area codes, already has 10-digit numbering in most places, which won’t change.

The area code requirement will be an annoyance for those of us who forget about it when calling or didn’t get into the “contacts” list on our phone and made sure the 603 proceeds. to all New Hampshire issues. This is much more of a problem for companies or organizations with equipment that makes calls based on a number database.

Verizon puts it this way in its announcement: “All services, automatic dialing equipment or other types of equipment programmed to make calls to local 7-digit numbers will need to be reprogrammed to make calls to 10-digit numbers, including including the area code. Here are some examples: personal security systems and medical surveillance devices, PBXs, fax machines, Internet access numbers, fire or burglar alarm systems, other security systems or barriers, speed dialers, mobile phone contact lists or other wireless, call forwarding settings, voicemail services and other similar features.

If not, it could even be dangerous. The 911 system, for example, relies on a database that links this hotline to local emergency services.

“We had to go in and rebuild the database that houses these phone numbers, we’ve already gone ahead and managed that,” Doyle said.

The massive database for the statewide emergency alert system does not have this problem. It only connects to cell phones which, because they use a different network, usually have area codes required.

The phone numbers date back to 1879 in Lowell, Massachusetts, when a measles outbreak wiped out the city’s manual switchboard staff, forcing the creation of a system that could be used by less-trained operators.

Depending on location, phone numbers had three, four or five digits until the 1930s when the seven-digit system was created, consisting of a three-digit prefix associated with a central followed by four digits linked to a specific line. In the 1950s, the first part of the prefix was associated with letters on the dial, so that a Concord number such as 225-1234 could be remembered as Capital-5-1234. This practice ended in the 1970s.

Area codes were created in 1947 to allow interstate calls without the assistance of an operator. New Hampshire’s 603 was one of the original 86 area codes. At the turn of the millennium, there were concerns that the state would soon need a second area code due to growth, but the improvement in the way phone numbers are distributed – combined with changes in distribution cell phone numbers – means the state will be fully covered by 603 for at least another decade.

When apps request access to your address book and you consent to it, data sharing doesn’t always end there.

Names and contact information that used to stay safe in analog address books are now floating in the data economy, bouncing from smartphones to app makers to third-party data collectors.

That means the apps get the names and phone numbers of everyone in your contacts – your best friend overseas who might have referred you at a red light. And companies could sell that information as well.

There’s no one-size-fits-all option to turn off contact sharing, and contacts you’ve already posted are hard to retrieve. But if you want to start holding your address book closer to the vest, here’s how.

– Limit the applications that access your address book.

On iOS, go to Settings -> Privacy -> Contacts and turn the slider to the off position on any apps you don’t want to access contacts stored on your iPhone.

On a newer Android phone, like the Samsung Galaxy S21, try Settings -> Privacy -> Authorization Manager -> Contacts. See which apps are in the Allowed list and remove permissions if necessary.

– Don’t rush through app installs and registrations.

When this pop-up appears indicating that the app wants to access your contacts, be ready to tap “Do not allow”. In most cases, it won’t affect the main features you use on the app. For some apps like messaging tools, it might make sense that they need your contacts to send and receive messages.

– Change which third-party apps can see your Google and Microsoft account data.

First, go to Manage your Google Account. On an Android, this can be found in your phone’s Settings app under Google. On an iPhone, access it by opening any Google app, like Gmail, and tapping your profile picture or icon in the top right corner.

Scroll down to the Security section, then to Third-party apps with account access. (This will only show if apps are accessing your account.) Under each app, there’s a list of the information you’ve shared with it. Tap an app and tap Remove access.

For Microsoft, sign in to account.microsoft.com and click on the privacy tab at the top of the page. Under More privacy settings, find Apps & services and go to View app access details. If you want to remove access for an app, select Edit and then Remove these permissions.

– Prevent apps from accessing your information on social networks.

Twitter: Open the Twitter phone app and tap the three lines at the top left. Choose Settings & Privacy -> Account -> Apps & Sessions. This should bring up your connected apps. If you see some that you don’t want to share your Twitter connections with, tap them and select Revoke app permissions.

Facebook: on the Facebook app, tap the three lines at the bottom right and choose Settings & Privacy -> Settings -> Apps & Websites. You can also completely disable access to third-party apps by tapping the Disable button under Apps, websites & games.

– Adjust the settings of each application.

If a particular app, like Venmo, is showing your contacts publicly and you want it to stop, go to the app’s settings and look for a “private” option. On the Venmo app, that means tapping the three lines in the top right corner and scrolling to Settings. Under Default privacy settings, choose private. Then go to the friends list and set it to private as well. You can even change all of your past payments to private under Past Transactions.

– Buy a burner phone.

Radical? May be. But if you really don’t want to share your address book with apps – and who they sell this information to – buy a separate phone to store your contacts.

– Send a data deletion request.

If you live in California or Virginia, your state’s privacy laws give you the right to ask companies to delete your personal data. In California, large app makers and Internet companies are required to provide a toll-free number or email address where customers can submit data deletion requests. Virginia law requires companies to include instructions for sending requests in their published privacy policies.

If you live elsewhere, some companies will still honor your request to delete data because it’s difficult to confirm the origin of each request – let alone poor customer service to people in states without proactive privacy laws.

– Configure another phone number with Google Voice.

This app acts like a phone in your phone, with a separate number. If you give the Voice number to acquaintances, your real phone number will not end up in app databases if those people share their contacts with apps.

Check your contact list! 10-digit dialing for 405 area code begins in Oklahoma https://euskalabereak.net/check-your-contact-list-10-digit-dialing-for-405-area-code-begins-in-oklahoma/ Fri, 23 Apr 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://euskalabereak.net/check-your-contact-list-10-digit-dialing-for-405-area-code-begins-in-oklahoma/ This is an archived article and the information in the article may be out of date.

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – It’s time to get ready and your devices as from Saturday 10-digit dialing will be required in area code 405.

The change comes as the Oklahoma City subway outgrows the 405 and prepares to add the 572.

For many, the 405 area code is a bit iconic like the downtown Oklahoma City skyline.

“There’s no question that area codes are a geographic reference, you just call it ‘The 405’,” said Matt Skinner, of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. “Now it will always be ‘The 405’. It will be just ‘405-572’.

Matt Skinner, of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, said new 405 numbers are still available, but are expected to run out by next December.

That doesn’t mean the beloved 405 is going away, however.

“This means that there may not be enough to meet some demands, for example if you are a large company and you want sequential numbers in all of your offices, it may not be. there aren’t enough 405 numbers to answer that, ”Skinner said.

As we prepare to add the area code 572 on May 24, anyone with a current 405 number will need to dial ten digits of a phone number to pass, starting this Saturday.

Skinner reminds Oklahomans to check their cell phones and make sure they have area codes included for their contact numbers.

“It’s a big deal,” he said. “I know personally, this morning I looked at my phone and thought, ‘Oh my gosh, there aren’t any 405 contacts that have the area code on them. “”

Some of the things you might forget are tablets and security systems that call your number; make sure they have this 405.

“All you have to do is take inventory. Every device you have that uses a phone number, make sure it’s set, ”Skinner said.

If you get a new number after May 24, you will have the option of a 572 or 405 area code until all 405 numbers run out.

You will not be charged for long distance calls between the two area codes.

state superintendent candidate used district email to build campaign contact list | Local education https://euskalabereak.net/state-superintendent-candidate-used-district-email-to-build-campaign-contact-list-local-education/ Fri, 26 Mar 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://euskalabereak.net/state-superintendent-candidate-used-district-email-to-build-campaign-contact-list-local-education/ In the second email sent in the afternoon with the subject line “This is legitimate – please do not call my school district to report a strange request”, again from their district public account, she told the recipients that the email is in regards to the state superintendent race, and she didn’t want to email […]]]>





In the second email sent in the afternoon with the subject line “This is legitimate – please do not call my school district to report a strange request”, again from their district public account, she told the recipients that the email is in regards to the state superintendent race, and she didn’t want to email the request for personal addresses to the district.

“Please trust me – more information is coming,” she wrote, before redirecting recipients to her private email address.






Underlying Email 2

According to the Underly campaign, the second email was sent in the afternoon to provide clarification to the first after recipients contacted the Pecatonica School District to ask if the email from the District of Underly had been hacked.

Underly campaign spokeswoman Alanna Conley said the emails were sent to people Underly had met during her career with the aim of collecting private contact information to avoid using school emails during the campaign.

“This is standard practice, to ensure that taxpayer resources are not used and was made specifically to comply with state laws regarding the use of public email – she literally says, don’t m ‘don’t write at work, only talk to me on my personal email,’ said Conley, contrasting Underly’s use of his district email with Kerr’s use of hers to solicit clients for his private business.

“Deb has used her email on a number of occasions to do private, for-profit work on taxpayer time,” Conley said. “Jill Underly was careful not to use the school email for her campaign and to ask her contacts to provide ways for her to contact them outside of school, and in particular not to contact her at school about the campaign. “
