    I got my Droid 2 a couple weeks ago, and I'm having two problems with my contacts list:

    1) For some contacts, the phone numbers aren't displayed when I view the contact. To see the numbers, I have to edit the contact. This is only true for some, not all. Is there a setting somewhere that this is controlled?

    2) Sometime when I go into my contact list, I see a list of social media items for my contacts instead of their names (which is very frustrating). What controls this?

    Thanks.

    1. The phone number issue is known...caused by Facebook sync of contact information. If you turn off Facebook the numbers display.

    You can tap on the picture and then on the Phone icon in the list that appears to access all the phone numbers for that account.

    2. Never heard/seen that.

    You might want to remove your Facebook account and add it again (assuming you want/need your Facebook account on the phone) and see if that helps.

    Thanks for the info. Today there's a new twist. Now they are displayed as the call history for the list. One thing I'm noticing is three white radio buttons at the top to the right of the list name, and the one that is selected now (the leftmost one) is different that the one that was selected when it was the other format (and neither is the one I want). Could that be the problem? If so, how do I change it that so whatever list I go to, it is the format I want?

    Thanks.

    2) is part of blur. When you go into contacts, you can scroll the screen left and right, not just up and down. If you scroll to the left it shows the social media updates of your contacts. If you scroll to the right, it shows your social and phone history combined. In the center screen, its your list of contacts.
