Contacts won't show on phone!
So, I manually added all contacts in my phone.
At some point, they synced to Google, and i noticed that when texting, multiples of the numbers would show up.
I checked my contacts, and inside each contact, there would be DOUBLE contacts. I went online to Google Gmail, checked my contacts, and there indeed was TWO of each contact.
So i went through my contact list, deleted each one manually. Then I went to call one of my friends, and I noticed her name wasn't on my contacts, but it WAS on my Favorited Starred list. Confused, i deleted the contact, and re-added the contact, and it STILL WOULDN'T show on my contacts.
I searched the name in the contacts and the name showed up in the search, but wouldn't show up on the main contacts list! I went onto Google contacts, and the number indeed was online but I had to click MOVE TO MY CONTACTS for them to show up on my phone?
My main question is, how can you add contacts directly onto the phone? I'm almost positive it worked just perfectly before..... I know it can't be that difficult to add a contact!

Check you settings
You're lucky! I manually transferred my contacts from my sim and everything OK for a few days. 4 days later, all gone and I had to do the transfer again!
I believe your only choices are all Gmail contacts or only those with phone numbers listed. From day one, I chose "only contacts with phones" and have never had a problem.

Your contacts in Gmail are supposed to sync with your phone. Make sure you leave those in Gmail intact. Mine have never gone anywhere.

crazy contact list
I'm having similar issues but I didn't notice until I started manually adding contacts. I would search for that contact in my contact list and it wouldn't be there, then I check my call log and the name and number are recognized. So I don't get why they wouldn't show up on my list, and playing with the settings doesn't seem to make a difference. What gives?
As mentioned above, it has to do with the filtering you have set on the phone. If you make sure all the boxes are checked under the display options and your gmail account, that should make them show up.
