    So I'm new to Android and I have a Verizon S5. I am having a weird issue with the contacts. I can go in and edit the contact's name and save it. If I do voice dialing it will know what the name is. But it is displayed everywhere still as the old name. I can only see the new name when I go into the edit contact screen. In my Messaging app (Google messages) it shows the old name, in the contacts it shows the old name. It is not the end of the world but it is pretty annoying that it would not show the updated name throughout the phone. Anyone have this same issue? Anyone have Ideas on solving it?

    Thank you

    A guess: In your pull-down menu, is you Sync button active or grayed-out? Regardless, tap it once or twice to highlight/activate it. I'm thinking you may not have sync'd your phone data (contacts, etc.) to Google.

    Go into contacts and verify which contact list is being used. I don't advise using multiple contact lists if you can help it. I recommend using Gmail for easy syncing.

    Try going to the 3 dot menu and hit UNLINK contacts. Get rid of any that you don't use. I hope this helps.
