Default Gmail Contact Formatter || 2/14/2011

Several of the Froyo Roms that I've used had an issue that wouldn't allow me to send MMS if the phone number had parenthesis in the format. I saw several people posting that they didn't want to have to edit each contact in Gmail to remove the parentheses, so I created the application.

This application will format all of your phone numbers in your Gmail account based on your desired format.

Available Formats:
Numbers Only
Ten Digit Number
Ten Digit Number With Parenthesis
One Plus Number
One Plus Number With Parenthesis
One Plus Number With Parenthesis And Plus Sign
Three Plus 8 With Parenthesis
Latvia Format
(other formats could be added if needed)

This is a windows application that requires .Net 4.0 as a prerequisite. Gmail doesn't really have any way to modify your contacts in bulk, so I have also been thinking about doing some other things to help keep your contacts organized. If you have any ideas, let me know and I'll try to integrate those enhancements as well.

This application has been moved to the android market.

Very nice... it would be really good if you could add a few more standard formats or even the source code. I personally like to us:

(###) ###-####

and all my contacts are not formated that way. Also I noticed that your Ten Digit Number actually converts it to 1 + Ten digit number format.

Thanks for the app... it is at least a starting point.

Hummm actually it seems to be giving me time outs and not working. oh well. Thanks again for the effort.

I have added a couple other formats with parenthesis. Let me know if you need others.

As for the issue you reported...
Ten Digit Number actually converts it to 1 + Ten digit number format
I cannot reproduce this, so if you have anymore details, please let me know.

The error is from Google's web service. There should be a log file in the directory where the application resides. Can you look there for some more details related to the error? Also, are you behind a proxy server? That is something I haven't had the oportunity to test.
