I edited a contact on the native address book. I don’t see the changes in Rolo. Why?

If you delete a contact using your native address book, it WILL NOT get reflected in Rolo. If you add a contact It WILL get reflected.

If you edit a contact using your native address book, the updated info will appear in Rolo. However, the old information will not be deleted from the contact in Rolo. For example, when you change a phone number or email in the native address book, the new phone number/email will appear in Rolo along with the old phone number/email.

Will changes made in Rolo reflect in my Android phone book?

Yes. Except merges. We do not propagate merges to your address book. If you merge a contact, you will not see the results in your native address book. You can see it only on Rolo.

Where is my data stored?

We store it securely in the cloud with a reputed cloud provider. Data transmission between the phone and Rolo cloud is secured using 256 bit AES keys for the encryption. Access to the data store in the cloud is protected with an additional layer of encryption.

How much data does this app consume?

Rolo will not consume a lot of data during day-to-day use. The highest consumption would happen during install. For a person with 1000 contacts, it would be a couple of megabytes (MB)

I am not able to see any emails in profile view. What happened?

To see emails from your contact in the profile view, three things must happen.

  1. You need to connect your email. You can do so from Menu->Add Accounts
  2. The contact you are viewing must have an email address – this may require a merge – see here
  3. You must have sent or received emails to that person

I know that my friend has an email id but it does not show up in the profile view. What do I do?

This probably means that you will have to merge contacts manually. You can do two things

  1.  Check under the possible duplicates section in the profile view. You may have useful suggestions there
  2. You will find a search bar at the bottom of the profile view. Start typing out the name of your friend, you will find contact suggestions there.

Rolo tells me it has merged contacts. How do I see what contacts have been merged?

Go to Menu->Review Merge. You will find a list of all merged contacts. You can approve or reject merges here.

Rolo has performed a wrong merge. What do I do?

Just go to the profile view. You will find a ‘merged duplicates’ section. Just tap the ‘x’ and you are done.

I tried to make a call and Rolo took me to the Android dialler. Why don’t you have your own dialler?

Every manufacturer has their own version of the dialler with some extra nice features e.g. call recording. We don’t want you to miss out on them. So we chose to re-direct you to the dialler.

I just set a reminder for someone. Where do I see it?

Just open the profile view for that person, you will see the list of reminders.

I set a reminder for a number which has not been added as a contact. Where do I see that?
