    Lately when I go to save a contact I go through the process and when it says "contact saved" it never shows up in my contacts nor does it appear as a contact name in my text messages. Still shows just the number. I've checked the settings in contacts and everything is as it should be. Im on Eclipse 3, but that has never caused this issue before. Any thoughts?

    backup contacts
    1 are contacts synced with Backup Assistant℠ Plus: Contacts or Contacts.Google.com?
    2 also backup contacts on sd card, open contacts app/menu/import/export select export to storage/ok

    un-sync google account(s) menu/settings/accounts & sync/ uncheck contacts

    then you can try menu/settings/apps/all/contacts force stop, then clear data, then reboot
    if contact still not working menu/settings/apps/all/contact storage app/ force stop and clear data then reboot

    re-sync google contacts, wait for contacts to re-sync

    if you still can not add new contacts, you may need to reinstall eclipse or wipe data in recovery, but backup everything you want to keep first

    Update on this: still can't save contacts. Since the previous post i've tried saving contacts on my stock rom and now on SteelDroid 5.0. Still not working. If I save it online at google it will update when my phone syncs just wont save from the phone itself.

    Now I know its not an issue with the ROMs which makes it more mysterious. I never changed any settings on my phone or in google(not that I would know what settings would do that anyway). It just started doing that on it's own. May be a case for Dr. House...
