    Did you ever have google contacts? the two are not associated in any way.

    If you log in to google.com from a pc are there contacts there?


    or...were your only contacts what was synced with facebook


    or...were there sim card contacts (new to me) and facebook contacts?


    It sounds like your phone has simply stopped syncing but it is hard to say.

    From your description it is safe to say that your sync accounts fail when they try and sync.


    1. are you connected to data?
    a. have you tried wifi?

    2. uncheck all of the sync options...setting them to NOT sync. turn off phone, pull battery, turn phone back on, go into sync and recheck the sync options. wait 1-3 hours for sync to complete and check your contacts.

    3. open contacts.menu.more.display options
    make sure everything is set to display and do step 2 again

    nice, definitely had not discovered that extra menu within contacts.

    not at all surprised that it is there, though - there are hidden menus all over this phone!

    yeah...

    I am familiar with all of the menus..but samsung puts them in really odd spots lol.

    I think I find something new every day.


    The new gmail update now lets you create specific ringtones for not only each account..but also each FOLDER...which leads me to believe I can flag some of my mail to go straight into pre selected folders vs my inbox...that is awesome.

    I still plan on working up some how-to and tips and tricks stuff but just haven't had time.

    oh hey..I will get you my battery stuff soon. I was thrown off track when you suggested 2.0.2 gb haha...implementing my tricks now
