    The contacts will sync roughly 50% of the time and so far I cannot pinpoint any root cause. I restart everyday, I cleared cache, I toggled with which contacts to sync from which accounts and double checked that there was no overlap or apparent conflicts, I am only getting frustrated instead of resolution. I am no expert, but certainly not a beginner either. Wore a palm pre and an s3 into the ground before I got the note and never had issues. Rooted the first two but not the note as yet.

    Phone and Messaging will come over as just phone numbers several times a day, whether or not any other apps are open or running. Also, if I use the google now search I can "see" their name but once I select it I get an error bubble that says contacts have crashed. When I open contacts there are none visible.

    Part of the time the contacts sync correctly and I can view them in Phone or Messaging. During these times Contacts works just fine.

    I also uninstalled the Outlook app, tested and reinstalled. So I see where Outlook has caused trouble for other users, but I am not certain that is the smoking gun after my tinkering.

    Any other advice or troubleshooting tips that y'all can suggest? Thanks in advance!

    If you are into rooting I'd recommend that you root and install a custom rom.

    I have followed this issue on numerous forums and threads as well. It appears to be a Samsung-exclusive problem. I have this problem too on a new Galaxy S6 edge.

    I am considering a factory reset hoping it would kill that stupid pesty bug.
