    Default Trouble with Contacts

    I just had something weird happen today...all my google contacts on my phone were now "SIM" contacts (Sprint phones don't have a SIM card). No matter what I did, what contacts I chose to view, only these would show, and I couldn't edit or delete them. I couldn't sync any new ones on Google either. Luckily a 2 week old Nandroid backup (10 May) saved my bacon. Anyone else experience anything like this? I still don't know what caused it. MD4 Stock Rooted.

    I've never seen this before. I can't find any option or ability on my Sprint GS3 to assign a contact to a SIM. Is your phone rooted, with a custom ROM? Has it been flashed to a carrier other than Sprint? Are you using a contacts app other than the standard Samsung app?

    Neither had I. I am stock rooted, odexed, no other contacts app other than stock. I have no idea how it happened. Just went to edit a contact one day and couldn't, because they all showed SIM instead of Google. I ended up restoring a 2 week old TWRP backup and so far haven't seen that problem since until Sgooter posted the Contacts Puzzle thread. Weird.
