    I had most of my contacts in groups (Family, Friends, VIP, Co-Workers) and some in the ALL section. When adding a contact sometimes, the phone seemed to be a little buggy and finicky when deciding whether it actually wanted to classify the contact in the group i assigned it to or just leave it on that first set of "ALL". So i went through and unassigned all grouped contacts from any group, thinking they'd just sit in the ALL section. (I'm talking about the stock People app on the phone, btw) So anyway, they're not there. They're just gone from the People app all-together. All the info and pictures are still present in my call history and when i select one of them, the contact still exists and i can add them back into any of the groups, but not just have them show up in the ALL section. Any body experienced this or have any tips at all? Thanks

    I have the same problem. In fact, I was looking for a solution here when I found your post. My "People" tab only shows me and one other. The rest are gone. However, they are available in the groups area. Not sure what I did to cause that.... Hoping somebody has a solution.

    Got the same thing! Except worst. I assign them to Family, Customers, etc. In a few seconds.....they go to Not Assigned!!

    What is happening?

    Have you ever exported them to your card? I find that every time I restore my contacts from the card after wiping and flashing a new ROM, they all go to the general list and group assignments completely disappear. I thought it was a bug, but perhaps it's a feature since it sounds like this is exactly what you were trying to accomplish ;). (Mine are phone contacts, not Gmail contacts though - if you're syncing to Google, I don't know if it would work the same way.)

    Speaking of Google, if your contacts or a portion of them are set as "phone" contacts, you might benefit from the constant sync when you utilize the Google contact option. If not, wayrad's idea of exporting to the card is a good idea. I actually do both due to my OCD.
