    Unhappy Syncing Whatsapp contacts with Google Contacts

    Hi

    I can imagine this question has been asked about a million times.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy s3 Mini running on Jelly Bean and I have a problem with my contacts. One...only one...has done what I want it to. The first contact on my address list has a little Google symbol AND and little Whatsapp symbol next to it, so I can start a Whatsapp conversation from the Phone Book. However, this hasn't happened to any other contacts and it's really bugging me. Here are the things I have tried:-

    Phone Book - Contacts to display - All
    Phone Book - Accounts - Whatsapp - Sync Contacts

    I have been looking online for about 2 days, and I can't figure it out. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

    Hi Joanne

    just solved this problem. In whatsapp settings go to contacts and checkmark "show all contacts" . I'm not sure how or why some of my contacts were hidden but this led to all of them being shown.

    I have fixed this now...I uninstalled Whatsapp and then reinstalled it. Should have known turning it off and then on again fixes everything!

    three possibilities for this to happen
    1.unhide contacts in whatsapp
    2.Kitkat privacy in settings
    3.contacts-in it 'accounts'-auto sync app data.

    I faced the same problem and researched it.
    I saved a number with country code, for example +91 for india, the number got reflected in whatsapp. Try it out
