    Hi all

    I use GO SMS Pro and GO Contacts but have noticed the SMS app doesn't seem to pick up all my contacts. I have to go into Contacts to message some people.


    Anyone else noticed this issue? I've emailed the developer team but just wondering is it just me or has anyone else noticed this?

    Yep. Sometimes you forget to set a person's number to Mobile (instead of Home or Work), which is easy correct yourself by just editing the contact. And then some contacts' phone numbers are sync'd from their Facebook account, and if their Facebook account doesn't label it as a mobile number then you've got to go and manually add one into your phone's contacts app.

    I actually prefer it that way though, as there's been occasions in the past when I inadvertently send an SMS/MMS to a landline number by mistake, and wonder why I don't get a response later.

    I discovered it also helps if you have the contact's mobile number tagged as a mobile in Gmail contacts; on a few occasions I had them tagged as "work" as it was a work mobile.
