    On my Gmail Contacts online I have a phone number type as "Google Voice", but when it is synced with my phone it shows up as "grandcentral" in the phone's contacts.

    This is not a huge bug, but still not right.

    Has anyone else seen this? Is this something I will just have to wait for google to fix in an update?

    When you say that do you mean you're also seeing the issue?

    Just for grins and giggles I added my google voice number to my contacts. It's showing up on the phone as Google Voice.

    Don't know what to tell you.

    Not having the same issue. I did as hook mentioned and 'google voice' showed up as just that in my contacts.

    I put a test contact in via the Gmail Contacts website.

    A Couple of images of the issue:
