My outlook contacts have the persons photo, phone nos., e-mail address and mailing address. I exported a CSV file and imported this to my GMail. Then all the contacts came to my Nexus S with all fields except for the snaps.

Sync your contacts in phone with your Gmail account or with your Facebook account. It will download SNS contacts, you can join SNS contacts with your existing contacts and it will get the photos back from their Google profile or Facebook profile.

URGENT!

Yesterday, I installed a app namely Absolute Root System* in my LG Optimus One(P500). This app helps you change the default system font, bootloader screen etc. I badly wanted to change the default system font and ended up doing so. But, after changing the default system font, the application labels in the menus started appearing weird. Please see the images attached for reference. But the real problem is, this app does not let you switch back to the original system font and only allows you to select a font from a list of nearly 150 fonts.

* The application was gifted to me by my dearest friend. Damn
  • I tried uninstalling the app, rest my phone to factory settings etc. But, all my actions did not yield any result.
  • The original default system font is DroidSansFallBack

I would appreciate if someone guide me on how to switch back to my previous system font. Thanks in anticipation.

PS: I contacted the developer. He says that purchasing the latest version of this software, by paying $1.99, would help me accomplish my goals. But, I don't believe him, anymore.

Download the font files, .apk files and install them, you can see the fonts in your settings and select them.

There is a app by the name font for galaxy SP on the market, you may not find the exact font but you can download the font which suits you. Even though it says it is for galaxy series, some people have used it on droid series.

Try your luck.

I remember changing system fonts in mine, and there was no option to switch back to default, or the app won't let you know what was the default font. I switched back to default by trial and error method.

Chill. its okay man. The font size is bigger than what your display is set up for. Just either use titanium backup if u have the backup or just reduce the font size if that's an option anywhere.

Hi, as I have previously mentioned on this thread, I am using a Galaxy Ace about 2 months old. I have been facing some problems, and the general opinion I have been able to gather is that it is better to move to a different Firmware version.
Since, I have never done a Firmware upgrade, please can someone guide me with discrete steps I need to follow, including any precautions that I need to take? Please also mention the source for the firmware... Thanks.

TTF yes, but the files you download will be in .apk

Contact http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/member...antgandhi.html for this - he's running a custom ROM and has flashed other OEM firmwares as well.

Else News - www.SamFirmware.com is enough to do your basic job or u can look up XDA-developers threads.

Are you referring to the Desire S ? It will cost your 22399/- on flipkart.com
The Samsung Google Nexus S will cost 19999/-.

Both are with Android 2.3
