    On 634 I have also seen contacts voodoo. Ii thought everything was great and then got a random re-boot that wiped out all activesync everything. Messages and contacts, getting "can not display" error messages on email and contacts blown away completely, Gmail account displayed properly.

    Not sure what triggered it after a few days of smooth sailing. I had a bunch of favorite contacts selected, the weird thing was they stayed displayed as grey tiles, without their photos, even though the data had been wiped from contacts. Several hard re-starts didn't do anything to solve the problem, seemed like the activesync/exchange data was just blow off the phone or corrupted and unreadable.

    Hopefully this will get more stable in the next release.

    634 with 632 apps on a Q10 on VZW - kind of a risky daily driver - but beautiful when it works.

    This was my experience as well. My outlook.com contacts were fine, but when I added my work email (Exchange Active Sync) everything was messed up. I think LinkedIn has something to do with it as well as when I added LinkedIn some of outloom.com contacts would disappear (which I think are the "blank" contacts.

    I went back to 1154 for now.

    Same here... I'm going to try updating using the 10.3.1 debrick with to see if a the issue pops up after a non destructive update.

    No water marks,i would refer to the 634 thread for missing functionality, I believe darcy has a few posts that shows what is disabled.

    Confirmed. Contacts was disappearing and blank contact entries show up on the contact app.

    For me, the fix is to disable "auto-merge". All contacts came back after the change.
    I think I also enabled "unmerge existing contacts".

    FYI... all my contacts are on my work & personal accounts (e.g. hotmail, gmail) .... so if you use local contacts ... your mileage might varies.

    Unmerged seems like a good step. I also turned off everything except Activesync/Exchange . So far so good but I have been here before.

    I am just hoping for another more consistently stable release soon.

    I am not sure if you rely on your phone for business it's wise for a daily driver unless you carry a second device as back up.

    When I have to re-build my phone it has several thousand contacts and a lot of email so if I can't get it on a charger and wifi I need a back-up. It is a beta after all.

    Contacts are miss aligned and some are even blanked out "place holders" unfortunately as well.

    Weird that on my dash the contacts come up over bluetooth,

    Passport, it's the optimal viewing experience.

    I was referring to the developer version of this OS, which is 10.3.1.634. It is a crippled version of 10.3.1.632.

    I also noticed before adding contacts, if we put off option for Merging contacts, it has solved unnecessarily burden of FB, Twitter and LinkedIn contacts being merged. This feature of 10.3.1 pulling me to stay for time being in spite of several issues of freezing, random booting , alarm, search etc.

    This could be a work around until BlackBerry improves the auto-merge. My contacts are re-populating now after trying this. Sure there will be duplicates if you have a few accounts coming in, but they are there and can be used.

    Thanks Sigta

    I've had contact issues on just about every version of BB10 I've tried. And I always wipe after running the autoloaders, I never do full or setting restores after the wipe. I use a Gmail account to restore my contacts. It doesn't take to long before there are issues. Like now I'm on 10.3.0.1154 and it seems as if contacts group text, they get merged.

    Waiting for the next big update for Talk2Watch Pro.

    So I disabled the auto merge and contact have rebuild back. Would manually merge give the same issue again?

    It certainly works better to do it manually, but I have still noticed funny things happen. Best to leave it unmerged for now I think.

    I was having duplicate contacts issues after installing 10.3.0.1154 and 10.3.1.632 but I found a trick that solved the duplicate issues for me. So here goes:

    I used to add my Gmail account first before adding my Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter accounts. This time I added all my social accounts first and then added my Gmail account last. Now my contacts are all fine and no duplicate issues. Just thought I pass it along.

    Thanks I found that this worked for me as well, however if I added an eas account at any point it would break. I'm just running unmerged for the moment. Seems fine

    Will this also work for the auto merge bug where you have blank accounts

    I think it will once you remove all contact accounts. Then start fresh.
