All contacts syncing, but not all groups?

    HI! First post here, thanks fer having me!

    OK, I'll get right to it. I had an HD2, loved it, it got stolen, bought a G1, played with it, decided I liked android, so I got a faster bigger badder cliq 2, and love it (except blur, which sucks).


    I was trying to figure out how to mass sms; which I found on these wonderful forums (apps, contacts, menu, display groups, click group name on top bar, text all), at which point I began mass texting clients and friends for Christmas, except 1 group.
    All of my contacts have synced, but not all my groups (which one needs to mass text). I had a category named "Friends" in my gmail. I figured out it was a default group and couldn't be renamed, so I made a new group named "My Friends" and moved them all over to it. Tried to sync (data, accounts, gmail, menu, sync now) several times, waited a couple hours, and that group won't transfer to my phone. The rest of the groups do (5 of them), but not "my friends" (the sixth).

    How do I get all the groups to sync, or have i exceeded the max number of groups or something???

    Check out Google Contacts from your PC web browser and check the groups there (its supposed to import from Gmail). If everything is fine, on your phone go to Contacts>Menu>More>Display options>Gmail>check if the groups you have are checked as well.
