Contacts exist, but are invisible
I just moved from my HTC Droid Incredible 4G to a Galaxy S4. So far it's great, but my contacts list is wonky.
For example, I have a contact called "John" on my Gmail account. John has a phone number. When I go into the phone and begin dialing John's number, John's contact entry appears. And if I type in 5646, John's contact entry correctly appears.
When I enter the Contacts screen, there's no listing for John in the alphabetical list. But if I type in "john", he shows up. I confirmed that "Contacts to display" is set to "all contacts". The setting of "show only contacts with numbers" doesn't make a difference either.
I've had this problem with each Android phone I own (Droid, Thunderbolt, Droid Incredible, and now GS4), and it's usually just a matter of tweaking the settings until the contact appears. Unfortunately I've now tweaked every setting on the GS4 but the contact remains MIA.
