Carddav - some contacts keep unsynced

  • admin

    @kgurr In my case I’ve looked that option up in Samsung contacts app. But I don’t know if this has been introduced to other apps as well… Screenshot_20200110-155210_Contacts.jpg

  • @rfc2822 I hijack “my” thread back. By now I ve figured out how to switch on the logging. For me the logs don t look suspicious. It ends like this:

    2020-01-10 22:06:49 21945 [syncadapter.SyncManager] fe037998-66c1-4f73-961a-4757eee39f03.ics has not been changed on server (ETag still 65293e6b2b3506150e3ecacff12e6066)

    2020-01-10 22:06:49 21906 [syncadapter.SyncAdapterService] Sync for (org.dmfs.tasks, Account {name=Fabzgy@hetzner,}) finished

    I can t see any errors or timeouts …

  • Finally, after some searching, I found an app:
    “Copy Contacts” from AlefSoft
    The app works perfectly on my device to copy contacts into the DAVx5 phone book.

    @kgurr Thanks for the update! We have already linked it on

  • Yes, but with “Copy Contacts” people will not find this specific app!
    With the search string “android app copy contacts” the app that helped me is unfortunately not listed.

    The app is only found with the addition of the programmer “AlefSoft”

    With the search string “android app copy contacts AlefSoft” finally the app appears 😉

  • Hey guys, this is NOT what this thread is about. I know how to copy contacts. My problem is, that not all contacts on my Nextcloud Servcer get synced on my Android device. Please stop derailing the thread!

    @Fabzgy try to create verbose logs: DAVx5 → App-Settings → Activate Verbose logs. Then force a sync and send us the logs.

  • @devvv4ever Thats is what I did (partly) 11 days ago in this very thread without anyone referring to it. The logs are big though. If you want to have the complete logs I d rather send them directly to someone…

    Thats is what I did (partly) 11 days ago in this very thread without anyone referring to it.

    These are only the end lines which do not contain useful information. I would need to see how many contacts the server offers, and how many DAVx5 downloads.

    So yes, the complete logs are required. Please send them to or if you don’t want to send them by email, you can use the secure contact form.

    Could you also possible provide a test account so we could reproduce the problem ourselves?

  • I ve just sent the logs (2.8 MB) to the followng Mail adress:
