    Check your contact filter is enabled...

    Open contacts > menu > Display options > touch your email account > enable 'All other contacts' and 'blank', system group: My contacts; should be already checked.

    thanks for the info....
    i just did that and was able to check that...but those 2 contacts have been erased from my phone and also from my online account....im guessing that because i deleted from the n1 they got deleted from online when they synced??

    If that ever happens again, just go to the one contact that shows and from the menu select edit, then the option to Separate. That will move them back to two separate contacts and they will stay separated. Sometimes the contact app tries to help too much and combines anyone with a similar name.

    If you have two contacts with the same name but different information, you can also choose to Join them into one contact with the combined information.

    this works sometimes. i was adding a contact's last name that happened to be the same as another contact, and after i added the last name it joined the 2 together. when i went to separate, it deleted one of them completely, which is bs. ive separated other contacts before, but this was the first time google failed me

    You might double-check your filter settings. It's most likely still there, just hidden from view. I have never known it to delete a contact on its own.
