Alternative way of linking social to phone contacts in Symbian Belle :)

Few of our readers have informed us that they are not able to link social contacts to phone contacts by the method described by us in our last article. So here is the alternative .

  • Configure at least one of your social accounts (Facebook, Twitter)
  • For Facebook go to news feeds or to friends and tap on the contact’s profile picture. You will get option of “Link profile to contact”. Selecting this option will take you to phone contacts, where you can choose the contact to be linked . And it is done.
  • For Twitter, go to feeds or to followers/followed and tap on the contact’s profile. You will get option of “Link profile to contact”. Selecting this option will take you to phone contacts, where you can choose the contact to be linked . And it is done.
One very interesting thing is that social integrates to your phone contacts automatically after you configure your social account. So, if you want your phone to do integration of social and phone contacts, you need to keep name of phone contacts as much similar to social contacts as possible. Isn’t that awesome. But you need to wait for half an hour after configuring your account to let it happen in background.

    I have over 300 contacts. When I used for the first time the Social application (nokia e7 os: nokia belle refresh) it appeared a list of facebook profiles that might correspond to my contacts…but I skipped that step 🙁 now I wanna see that list again, but I don’t know how. Can u help me?

    I have linked contacts to facebook profiles (address book appears green on social) but these tend to vanish after a while, sometimes days later. I notice because peoples posts stop coming into the contact list. I got to re-link and it says the contact is already linked. Hoewver, the addressbook is now blue as it is for unlinked friends on facebook (in the social app).

    When I re-link it works…. for a while and again vanishes. this happens with the odd person. Not all links stop working. I only have about 15 links.

    How do I stop my links from vanishing?

    Nokia C7 running Bell. All software is up to date as at today and I check for updates regularly. I have also tried re-boots but that usually breaks more links.

  • this method works exactly the same as if the user had manage links. Very cool info.
    “With future updates, manage links will eventually show up”

    • Actually if belle or social has not installed properly the manage link option goes missing.Try re-installing Belle and social.You will get manage links option back.

      • reinstalling is an option for some, but these files usually come back on their own with frequent updates and restarting the mobile. Using socials to add a sync between contacts, is just as good and the manage link.. Belle, is kinda cool, but does have some issues for many, like massive battery drain, even when data, wifi etc are all closed. The next upgrade should be the better.

    Wish the manage links option was there. This takes way too long. 🙁
