    Default contacts not showing up in phone app contacts

    If I enter a contact into the people app it won't show up in my phone contacts. Is anyone else dealing with this?

    Nope, can't say I've experienced that.

    Make sure everything is fully synced with your Google account, and when entering a new contact or editing an old one make sure you tap "done" at the top of the screen. I've made the mistake of backing out (using the back button) and it doesn't always save then.

    If you mean show up in dialer app, it won't do that. That list only shows the contacts you recently called or received calls. You are supposed to key in the name at the top to do a search in your contacts.

    Scroll to the bottom of the dialer. Press "All contacts".

    Ya I was pressing all contacts. It's working now. Idk why it's working now and but wasn't for the contacts I initially put in. Oh well!

    Part of the title or name gets put in the "middle name" line which android google contacts does not see when searching. If you revert to the "old" contacts version on your desktop you can separate the different lines and move the important info from "middle" to "first" or "last" lines.

    I have the same exact problem on my Note 4 after doing the update. This is somewhat troubling as it is my wife's contact and all 300+ other contact are there..

    Make sure you add them under "People' and not "Google".
