    Only names with Mobile numbers will show up. Check your contacts and see if the number listed is set as Mobile or something else.

    APPARENTLY I jumped the gun a little. It works when you change the cell to mobile BUT NOW it won't stay that way. I have saved the same contact 5 times now. And it keeps going back to saying cell on their info....

    Do you have your contacts sync'd? If so, where are you making the change, on the phone or on the other side?

    I'm not sure how its synced. I think it may be with the backup assistant. I made the change to the phone. Where would I go to change it otherwise?

    I don't use backup assistance but it sounds like your contacts are being overwritten by what is backed up. I don't know if there is a way to login to ba on the web but if there is I would do that and make my changes there.



    Although it shouldn't matter where the change is made.

    I would suggest this...



    If your using VZW backup assistant make a backup of your contacts with a third party backup to SD card app.



    Then uninstall the VZW backup assistant, your contacts that are in there will dissapear.



    Now restore contacts from the third party app.



    The VZW app waste resources, constantly talks to VZW unnecessarily, and does some weird things to your contacts (such as removing all your contacts imported from the app if you uninstall the app WTF). I would advise anyone using it to use the procedure above and uninstall it.

    You can't uninstall VZW Backup Assistant unless your phone is rooted. BA is a default app.

    I went to the backup assistant on the computer and made a bunch of changes, synced and so far all is good.

    Thank you everyone for your help...
