    I WAS storing all my contact on the phone. I've shifted them over to google. Another question. When I set the default number for a contact, will that be saved on google as well? So if I ever restore, it will restore with the default number for the contact?

    I have one more question. I deleted all the contacts stored on the phone itself and moved them to my Google account. Under display options, I only have google checked off to display. All the others are unchecked but that said, they are empty (no contacts). Now when I go to send a text, I have duplicate contacts showing up. For example If I'm sending a text to Steve, when I start to type "st..." in the "To" box, it will show two "Steve Mobile" options in the drop down...both with the same number. What could be causing this? I have already merged duplicate contacts in Google.

    i think there is a setting that you can tell the contacts to only display those with phone numbers. contacts -> settings -> more -> display options

    also scroll down to "Choose contacts to display" and make sure all other sources are unchecked.

    Both those settings are set correctly, as you described.

    hmm.... did you make sure that his number is not displayed twice within your google contacts (check online).

    how about "accounts and sync", is everything unsynced except for google?

    how about under SIM?

    i did a google search, and could not find any other solutions aside from what you have already explored. my only other suggestion would be to test it without the SIM card perhaps? or maybe just enable the SIM card, and clear out all contacts from there.

    Thanks for the response jco. Under the contact display options there was another "phone" category for hotmail. This account was not set to display or sync but I guess the phone was still reading it. I deleted all contacts from this account and now things seem to be working fine.

    I had to wipe my phone clean to get fp5 and then root. After restoring contacts from google, I noticed that the default number for a contact was not saved. I have to set it again.

    Perfectly normal. That is a phone setting, not a Google contact setting. When you wipe your phone, it looses that particular setting.
