My executive's phone started working last week.  Apparently, they got the fix pushed through.

Well, mine's broken again.  Maybe I just hadn't waited long enough.

 

My Speed Dial seems to be getting reset every day or so again.

 

I'm reasonably satisfied with star-liking or whatever from Contacts to get them to stay there.  But I miss the old functionality, or should I say, the obvious functionality where the Speed Dial list is of most-recently-used contacts that doesn't reset daily.

This will remain broken until Google changes it's policy about users data(this clearing of contacts is as per a policy change of Google about contacts, dated  7th Jan 2019) and understands that we don't like interference in our private data by anyone. It should be my wish who I want to contact rather than Google forcing it on me.

Hmm.  Curious that the policy allows temporary access to the Contact data (i.e., 24 hours or something), but not further access.  Hard for me to understand the difference.

Go here and Google will detect you're using a custom Android version and refer you to the manufacturer. At best, I get only 10 days whereas stock Android keeps 500 entries. C'mon, Moto, it's just a little bit of text.

Are we maybe talking about something different?  My "Recents" in the phone app go back months; I see April 24.

 

But the "Speed Dial" resets every day.  It shows one day's worth of incoming / outgoing contacts, in big rectangles.

Oops, sorry. I can't find a Speed Dial on this G6.

Are you guys talking about the Direct Dial widget? Edit... Or maybe staring any number of contacts as favorites?

@Dude777:

 

No, this is in the dialer app on (at least) the Z2 Play.  There are four tabs at the top: Dialer, Speed Dial, Recents, and Contacts. The Speed Dial tab shows a scrollable table (two columns  wide) of most recently used contacts that have been dialed or incoming calls, along with starred contacts at the top.

 

This list used to just accumulate over time. Now (except for the starred contacts) it clears daily.

 

Oh the things we get used to....

Ahh, I see, on the G6 there's no speed dial tab, just favs, recents, contacts and vm if you didn't turn it off.

 

Nonetheless, why did Moto not shorten your call history like they did for the G6?
