I'm running Cyanogenmod 12.1 and I'm having problems with the Contacts app.

A particular contact is showing in the Gmail app and in the phone app but not in the Contacts app.

Then I noticed that if I go to the phone app and select "Add contact" it shows up in the contacts app.

I cannot understand the logic behind this behaviour. Isn't Android supposed to sync my contacts with my Google account? Then why do I have to browse for a contact in Phone to "add contact"?

  • Do you have a filter selected in Contacts? – Matthew Read Mar 4 '16 at 8:04
  • Are you using a stable or a nightly build of CM12.1? Which particular build is it and for which device? If you're on a nightly, have you tried with a stable one and see if the issue persist? – Firelord Mar 4 '16 at 16:43
  • It's an unofficial build for Samsung S3mini by novafusion.pl – To Do Mar 4 '16 at 20:29
  • @MatthewRead No filter is set. It seems that not all contacts are automatically synced with Google. – To Do Mar 9 '16 at 17:49
