    Anyone else having problems putting contacts on their phone?? I didn't have a problem bluetoothing them over to my warp. But earlier today I wanted to put 2 new contacts into my phone with "new contacts" and they never showed up. If I start dialing the number they pop up, but can't actually see them on my contacts list. Turned phone off then back on...nothing! Any help out there or anyone else have this problem??

    Might be a stupid question but if you are using the stock Contacts APP that comes with the Warp what tab is highlighted at the very top? If it is on Favorites or Groups and not on contacts that might be your problem. You might also want to look at your display options in contacts which have settings for only showing contacts with phone # and various ways sort will display your contacts.

    shunter-
    when I first got the phone, I did have groups highlighted. I noticed that, deletd that contact then went to contacts highlighted and bluetoothed all my contacts over. No problem. Today when I tried to put in a contact the contacts tab was highlighted. Didn't show up, tried the options tab, everything looked good, still didn't show up. I had to put those contacts into my old phone and BT'd them and good to go. Wouldn't be a problem but Im getting rid of the old phone.

    marca- my man!! always here to help me out. I had a hard time figuring what you meant but then I got it. I had the 'all other contacts' unchecked. checked that and the 2 I thought I deleted are there now. Got another question though!! I never put contacts into groups so not sure why that would be an issue. So here's my question... WTH is 'starred in Android'? lol. Thanks again!!

    Starred in Android is in effect a Favorite group that is generated/kept/maintained by you solely on your Android phone. Hence "Starred in Android". I believe it will also sync to the "Starred in Android' list in GMail for easier creation of this list/group if it's handier or more convenient to generate them from your desktop instead of from the phone itself.

    It can save you from scrolling through many contacts just to find the ones you call regularly.
