    How can I check on the SIM card? This SIM card is the same one I've used on 3 different phones. Motorola, Note 2 and this Note 4. Transferred the SIM card and always had my contacts there. Hmm

    Same way you checked the phone & Gmail acct. Go into contact settings, contacts to display and change it to SIM.

    Yeah, my contacts are gone. I did this display change to the SIM card and it's empty. Ugh. Right now it's set at "ALL CONTACTS". That's why I have 122 contacts. But if I change that to Google I only get those 8 contacts in my folder. Yeah, it's weird

    I don't understand why they were being backed up somewhere... Unless you specifically turn off contact sync they will always sync to your Google account... What is even more odd is if it shows you have 122 contacts why aren't the names showing up? How did we lose just part of the information.

    No. These 122 contacts that are in my phone and not on the Google do have names and info. When I did that clear data thing it deleted my phones contacts. When I turned on sync, I only got these 122 contacts back. That's was all that returned.

    Like for example right now. These 122 contacts that are on my phone don't appear on my Google. How do I manually back up these 122 contacts into Google so I won't lose these 122 contacts

    In your app drawer go to settings>accounts>Google and make sure contacts is selected to back up..

    Is there any other email accounts you would have been backing those contacts up to? Do you remember when you added a contact where you decided to store it?

    No, no other email in my phone.

    Now that you mention it, whenever I would add a new contact, it never asked me where to save it. It just saved on my phones memory I guess.
