    While trying to work through all of the Android uniqueness, I have come across a HUGE problem, one that has been brought up before, but no one has ever resolved it. Here is the link, which the OP pretty much covers the whole problem indepth:


    I stumbled across this mess while syncing my Outlook Contacts (Exported to a CSV File) to my Gmail Account (Imported the CSV File from Outlook). When I completed this, I had 131 contacts in Gmail, however when I sync'd the Gmail Contacts with my Captivate (Android OS problem, not a Captivate problem), only 110 contacts show up. So where are the missing contacts? From what I can gather, they are hidden somewhere by the Android OS. This is a HUGE issue. So I am resurfacing this issue (since I was not aware of the backstory until I started the search, but they are dated) in hopes that someone has found out a solution to this hige Hiccup!

    So can someone shine some light on this problem, Thanks!

    Well I let my fingers do the walking and searched the web. I found a fix, ugly, but a fix for now that will bring all of your contacts to your Android Phone. I wish I could take the credit, but alas I cannot. So without further ado, here is the link with the ugly fix by the OP:


    I am still looking for a better way to skin this problem, so if you have one, bring it in and share...

    Thanks! ~~ Gunny
