Changes to Contacts

The U1 team likes to make things that are useful to our users. That’s why we are always working hard towards improving our services, making updates and launching new features.

As we communicated back in December, we’re continuing to invest in our new data sync infrastructure U1DB. Therefore, we’ve been gradually turning off services that are reliant on the old infrastructure and providing little value to users in their current form.

As such, from today we have decided to remove Facebook contacts import & sync as a option from the U1 web dashboard.

Don’t worry, those of you who have added contacts already will still have them available in the U1 web dash and you’ll still be able to manually add and edit contacts.

Contacts will also be one of the first services that we will build on top of our upcoming new data sync infrastructure. The hackers among you who would like to contribute, please contact us.

Keep an eye on the blog for updates about the future of U1 contacts .

    I’m crying out for a simple system where I can sync contacts between Thunderbird on Ubuntu, and my Android phone. Even better if I can sync the calendar as well. How are things going on this?
