    I sync everything OTA with MM. Everything has been working fine until this morning. I noticed that all of my recent calls just showed numbers, instead of the usual names. I go into my contact list, and see that its still there, mostly. I tap on a name that I know has several numbers, email addresses, a birthday, and a note. It only shows the name, birthday, and note. Nothing else.

    I turn off push on MM contacts, it wipes them all....and then they wouldn't come back. After a good half hour, they reappeared. Still without the important stuff...the NUMBERS!

    Is there a fix to this? Because I really find this unacceptable. My contacts are fine on the MM web app, and my Address Book is fine (and backed up), but everything is missing on my phone (if only the phone allowed numbers to be saved to the SIM...)

    help?

    --edit
    it seems to have fixed itself. everything appears to be in working order, at least for now. It still took almost two hours though. Kind of a long time for something as important as contacts. oh well. Hopefully they sort this stuff out, and soon.

    I think there must be a glitch in the system, mine has been playing up for the past 6 hours

    I've been to bed & 8 hours later mine is still not working.

    I have the names on the iphone but no numbers which is the main reason for having a phone??

    I have rebooted the phone countless times to see if this works, I have a strong signal & I'm in a 3G zone

    HELP!!

    Anyone have any ideas??

    This seems to happen once in a while. It's really scary the first time. :D

    Still, contacts and calendar push seem to be a lot more reliable that email push.

    this happened to me last weekend. It sorted itself in two days but happened just before my wife gave birth to twins. My great plans of phoning everyone to pass on the news were scuppered. I have been meaning to phone apple to go ape about it but with twins to look after I am struggling to find the time! Besides what are they going to do? Say sorry? I can't go back and have that moment again.
    I know the timing of this problem was awful and at any other time might have just been annoying but at 3am in the morning and several people are waiting on calls for the news I nearly stamped on my ****ing phone. I am still pretty angry
