    I have this weird problem on my 3GS. This is what happens:

    1. Someone calls me from number not in my contacts.
    2. I go to my "recents" and click the arrow, and then "create new contact".
    3. I type a name (Lyle) and click "save".
    4. In "recents" the number now shows up as "Lyle", everything seems ok.
    5. In the "contacts app" Lyle does not exist. Therefore also does not sync with mobileme. :(

    If I add a contact in the contact app itself, everything works fine. :confused:

    I have tried to delete my mobileme account from my iphone. But not an actual restore.

    Sounds like a radical move, and I don't want to risk losing texts etc from my phone. Is there any other route to go and try?

    Top left of your contacts does it say all contacts? If not tap it and then tap all contacts.

    I tried "restore" but restored with my old backup. No luck.

    It does say "all contacts".

    I ended up restoring my iPhone as a new iPhone (losing all my texts) and now the problem is gone.

    Just fyi, in case someone ends up googling this post. :)
