    Hi,

    Does anyone else find that certain contacts in Gmail do not appear on Andriod in the People app?

    I have some contacts which are in 'My Contacts' on gmail but try as I might I can't seem to get them to appear on the phone. The view settings in the People app are:

    • Sim
    • Google
    • My Phonebook
    • Phone

    One of the missing contacts only appeared after selecting 'Show auto gmail contacts' and when I unchecked this option the contact still appears on the phone.

    This problem also manifests itself when pulling in gmail contacts to Mozilla Thunderbird on the PC so presumably there is gmail setting I have missed - could this be 'display random contacts' :)

    Any advice or suggestions would be great
    Thanks
    Dave

    Should have mentioned that I have an HTC Desire running Android 2.2 and HTC Sense.
