    Hi guys, I just got my new Nokia 925.

    Some questions that I really have no clue. I really appreciate if you can help me.

    1. I add a facebook account to my phone. I see my FB friends in people hub, but there is nothing in the "History" tab for that person. I realize that only if I start a facebook chat with say "David", now then I see content in "History" of David's people hub.

    I thought it should fetch all the FB chat history for me and loaded to my phone's History tab?

    2. Can I have Gmail email history (conversations I have had with this person David) appeared as well in the History tab of David?

    3. if I link David's mobile number to David's FB account, when I start a message, how can I select if I want to start a FB chat or SMS?


    4. Is there no way to search gmail from Google Server? I do not want to download the whole inbox from gmail to my phone.

    Thanks

    It won't fetch any previous history. The history of chats you make when connected in the messaging hub are stored AFAIK.


    2. Can I have Gmail email history (conversations I have had with this person David) appeared as well in the History tab of David?

    You can click "more" (at the bottom) to see all emails sent with Google. I don't know how we can see the emails without this extra step.

    3. if I link David's mobile number to David's FB account, when I start a message, how can I select if I want to start a FB chat or SMS?

    When you open the contact in the messaging hub, you will find the switch icon in the app bar at the bottom. Click on it to switch between FB and SMS.

    4. Is there no way to search gmail from Google Server? I do not want to download the whole inbox from gmail to my phone.

    The search icon at the bottom in the app bar will give you recent emails, you can click on search more folders to get all the data required. This has worked for me personally.

    Thanks

    I have found that I cannot search emails on the server in Gmail unless the contacts are synced (in the google mail options).

    For 4), I see the search button from the app bar, but not the Search more folders.

    You have synced your contacts, which is what I meant. In any case, the settings i spoke about can be found under Gmail > Settings > Synchronization settings > content to synchronize.

    Its odd that you can't see history if you have synchronized contacts.

    Also, when in Gmail, once you search in the inbox, it shows the results and should show an option of searching more on Google Mail. Use that and then you can refine your search by folder etc.

    After 31st July, EAS (Exchange Active Sync) support for Google Mail will be removed. So, even after syncing the contacts, it will not give the option to search google mails on server. In order to search on server, select Outlook.com as the option to setup Gmail. Set domain as 'google' and server as 'm.google.com'. This will search both mails and contacts on server.

    I dont quite understand what you mean by select Outlook.com because it detects that it's a Google Gmail account. Or can you give me a quick screenshot or a bit more detail instruction? I hope it works. Otherwise it's annoying to use IE and visit gmail.com
