    I've had my Droid X for about a month. Love it! But, it's not syncing with my Google contacts correctly.
    First I cleaned up my Google contacts have put them all in a number system - ex. 01=01 - Jones, Sarah; 02 - Restaurant, Fancy Food; 03 - Old, Jank, Steve.

    When my Google contacts sync to my Droid some of them are correct and include the numbers first and some do not show the numbers at all. In other words, my Google contacts don't match my Droid contacts even though they're being synced from my Google account to my Droid.

    I've cleared all contacts on my Droid & re-synced, but am getting the same problem. I've looked thru the forums & haven't seen any questions that seem to match this one.

    Any suggestions? Thanks

    Do you have facebook synced up to it? Are they duplicates? Or are they just completely off from what you put into your gmail/contacts?

    Thank you for your response. I don't use facebook or any of the other social networks. They are not duplicates. They are just completely off from what my gmail contacts are. All gmail contacts start with a number, sorted Last Name first and in the correct order - 01 - Jones, Abby
    02 - Mike's Auto
    03 - Maid Helpers, etc.
    But the contacts on Droid show as
    Abby, 01 - Jones
    03 - Maid Helpers
    Mike's Auto
    Smith Doors, etc.
    Some show up as First Name, # - Last Name.

    I cleared the contact data storage on the phone & re-synced with gmail, but got the same results as before.
