    Hello,

    Welcome to the forum. The first thing I want you to do is, remove and reinsert the battery (usually this fixes most problem). If the problem still persists open contacts/people and Tap menu, Tap on Import/export - then import your contacts from your SD card to your phone. Keep in mind that you may or may not get duplicate contacts. If so, you would have to delete them manually (long press on contacts and Tap delete).

    Best of luck. Merry Christmas. ;)

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums! :)

    If you open your contacts app and then press menu>more>display options you can see which contacts are set to display in the app. The search feature will find contacts even if they are not set to display in the contacts list.

    What kind of phone do you have? It would be easier to redirect your phone's area of discussion. More members will be able to see your post and will try to assist you. In my signature Tap on the phones link - you'll be taken to a list of phones, scroll down to your phone and there you will see your phone's area of discussion. Best of luck.
