Android standard address book Prefix issue >> Prefix in the first name?

Issue with some Android devices:

Prefix displayed as first (given) name.

The issue will appear if:

* you have a contact with a prefix (like Dr., Prof. ..),

 * the contact don’t have a first name and

* you try to change the name using the full name field.

See this example:

Open the native (standard) address book

1. Edit a contact, display the name fields and insert a prefix + mid. name.

2. close the name fields and you will see the full name. So far so good

Now to reproduce the Android issue:

3.  change the name directly using the full name field

4. If you now display the name fields you will see the prefix in the first name field >> that is the issue

Apart of that, in some devices the Kylook APP will get the prefix twice: in the prefix and in the given name.


The solution?

Edit the names using the single Android name fields or better is to use the Kylook APP top edit the contacts.

Almost every APP on your device CAN read the “Standard” Android Contact List.

Protect your privacy

For important contacts, those you want to protect from thefts, we recommend you not to sync these contacts with the Standard Device Address Book. Your contact list will be safer if you keep these only in your Kylook APP!
