Default [Q] contacts issues

ok i got a weird issue happening

i have 568 contacts synced through google/gmail

the contacts are not staying synced i have saved contacts numerous times for people i talk to on a daily basis....the same number numerous times even.

but other contacts that i don't use have stayed synced with no problems

i have actually saves the same contact under different names many times and still have them not sync.

i have checked all of my sync settings and have them syncing correctly
i have the following sync systems setup
verizon backup assistant
exchange (through work)
facebook
3 google accounts (oddly the internet portion for one account does not sync )
htc
instigram
twitter
and yahoo

i cant seem to figure this one out does anyone else have this issue ?

This point here kind of confuses me. Have you checked/enabled "internet" syncing for this account? i assume you know where you could selectively turn off and on syncing different items for an account. how did you conclude that internet does not sync for one account?

Syncing is been the basics of smartphones and i don't expect this to be a bug somewhere.

If you have got the time, i would suggest a system reset.

Just for clarification, are you saving numbers and it is not syncing back to your Google account? I had this problem when I first got this phone since I am used to AOSP Roms. I noticed that I did not change my "Contact Type" to my Google account when saving new contacts. The default saves to your phone if you do not select another account. I am not sure if this is the issue you are experiencing. Good luck.

Yes that's right in the area where you can selectively choose what to sync the only thing that's ever an error is the internet for one account that says" sync is experiencing troubles please try again later "

I'll try a reset tonight and see what happens ....

When you say your contact type do you mean yours or the contact tyour saving?

I'll have to dig through the settings a bit more.

When you create a new contact it has a box that says "Contact Type". If you do not change it to Google, it will default to be saved on your phone only. That is all I can think of if you are saving a contact and it is not syncing. Unless it is a syncing problem throughout your phone.

In address book you can also chose to only display Google contacts or any combination of all your sources.
