Hi everyone,
My father uses a Nexus S and recently updated to Android 4.04. His problem now is that, since then, when he wants to write a new email, when the "new email" window opens, and he presses on the "To" field, he doesn't have the contacts window that opens to chose to whom he wants to send the message to.

I tried the following :
- Delete all contacts and re-import them
- Delete the gmail account and re-create it

Still with no success to fix this. It was working before.

What could be then the problem, could it be an internal problem of Gmail app ?

I hope you guys can help.

Best regards,

Try just to start typing the name of the contact. That should pull all possible contacts with that spelling. Then click on the right contact. Or try the stock email instead
