New contacts created on Droid disappear?! Just me?

    I've had this happen three or four times now...two types of occurrences:

    1. Edit an existing contact...when I select "Done" the screen says "Saving" and then returns to the contact list - and the contact I edited is gone.

    2. Create a new contact - enter name, address, phone, select Done, "Saving" message appears, return to contact list, and the contact is not in the list.

    Looked under all variants of the name (first, last, etc.) and it's just not there.

    I'm creating the contacts on my primary account.

    I'm on 2.01, no rooting, using the built-in contact manager.

    Has anyone else seen this? Extremely frustrating...

    Check to make sure it's not merging with another contact. This feature is a bit glitchy.

    The only time I've had data just 'disappear' I realized I was putting in contacts w/o phone's & had the option set to only display contacts with #'s.

    Also, check your gmail account from the web (full version, not the mobile) and see if you can find it.

    Thanks - yeah, I thought about the merging issue, but the contacts were businesses, included phone numbers, and I'm sure I entered the correct number (verified before saving) so the chances it dupes one already in my contact list is nil.

    The contacts don't show up online either...

    Any other ideas/suggestions appreciated.

    It happened twice in a row just now, so it's not like it's infrequent...

    It worked for me

    I guess my issue is some of my contacts are not visible (have disappeared) in the contact list, although they are still in the phone if I search for them. I'm not sure what's causing this glitch, but it is annoying.

    I tried the method Hothead posted above and it's no joy. I'm wondering if this is a side effect of some App.

    Happened to me. I did a battery pull (blackberry habit) and it works now

    Same, I'm not sure why, but any contact that wasn't a facebook contact or a google contact wouldn't show, but I went through this and now I have them all... Thanks so much!!!
