    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!
