    I recently had Verizon Wireless replace my D2 because of an SD card mount issue with the previous one. I am running the stock GB 2.3.3 ROM and I am rooted. When I go into contacts, I cannot add a contact, view a contact, or edit that contact. I can call them or text them when I long press and select call or text, but if I select view or edit, the contacts close. When I select any contact period, it does the same thing (basically goes back to the home screen). For now, I am using GO Contacts and Go Dialer for the time being. It is laggy and I am not a huge fan, but its the only way I can add contacts at the moment.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do to fix this problem with the stock contacts?

    Should I try to install a new apk version of GB contacts or can I install a Froyo version? If I install an apk version, do I need to install via sd card in recovery or replace in system files?

    I found the answer to my problem. I had removed blur_yahoo.apk which is why my contacts were crashing. I restored it and everything works again. Hopefully this information will help someone else on the forum.

    APKs/files safe to remove in Gingerbread/Gingerblur... - Android Forums

    You can restore any app by pulling it out of the appropriate zip file above, moving it to /system/app, changing its permissions and rebooting. Change its permissions either by long pressing on it with an app like Root Explorer, and set the values to:
    Owner: Read / Write
    Group: Read
    Other: Read

    Alternately, you can use a terminal emulator, open it, and type:
    su
    cd /system/app
    chmod 644 *.*
