This is a duplicate question.

When I add a new contact with my Android phone and sync it with nexcloud, it appears there. When I sync nextcloud now with my Jolla, it also appears there. Works like it should.

BUT: When I now delete the contact on nextcloud and sync again with Android and Jolla, it is also deleted on Android but NOT on JOLLA.

Everything else works (calendar sync, etc.), so I am relatively sure, I entered everything correct (use the full path (https://your.nextcloud.domain/remote.php/dav/) as server adress, no additional path under carddav and caldav).

Any ideas how I could find out how to solve the problem? Or is this a known bug?

There are a couple of bugs in the CalDAV sync plugin which are being worked on ATM.

For me the same with Jolla1 and OwnCloud. When you delete your connection to your DAV-Account in Preferences | Accounts then you will see there is an additional entry left in your local phonebook. To avoid this you have to merge the local phonebook entry with the DAV entry. Go to the contact in your phonebook , use the top menu link (Verknüpfung) and link the local phonebook entry with the DAV entry. For me this is not a bug but a design failure.

Thank you. But when I open (Verknüpfung) for the contact, there is already the name next to a earth-icon with a text-bubble and in the line below "carddav". For me, it seems, that it is already connected (because originally it came to the device with a sync through nextcloud).

It is impossible to modive this entry at (Verknüpfungen), it is only possible to add further links via the top menu (what does this mean?)

No additional idea - sorry. I don't change CardDAV entries in Jolla because of this behavior. CalDAV/CardDAV seems not to be important for the developers.

The only way that works for me is, that I ONLY change CardDAV on Jolla (then everything is synced correctly to the other devices). But when I make changes on the other devices, Jolla ist left out. Strange, that this is not important for the developers, because this is basic functionality on a business phone...
