Hello everyone. I just figured it out after trying to set up my wife phone with her new LG G4.
Waze is owned by Google. So your contacts need to be on your goggle email account. If it's not..just go to manage contacts then import.
wherever your contacts are on either sd card or internal storage have it imported to your Gmail account. Then go sync waze again and this worked for us!. Good luck

Same problem here. My contacts are saved by Microsoft and I could not add them to Waze.

Hope this can be fixed.

Hi,

We have found some solution to solve this issue. I hope this will help..

1. Contacts App > Menu (3 dots) > Contacts to display
2. Customize > Expand each account and check all checkboxes > OK
3. Open Waze > Main menu > My Waze > My Friends
4. + button (top right corner) > Find friends from contacts and scroll, if you still don't see contacts, please follow
5. Close waze > Android Settings > Accounts > Select Waze if it's there > Menu > Remove account.
6. Back to settings > Add account > Waze.
7. Follow steps 3 and 4 again.
8. After that he can do step 1 and choose All contacts again.

I have done some experimenting with this and it seems to me that even though Waze will let me search through all my contacts for navigation destinations, it will only show me "Google" contacts to send friend requests to. This is very annoying as I don't sync my contacts with Google and have them all in Exchange. It makes me think that Google made this change when they bought Waze as the new Google Maps will no longer search through non google contacts either - which really blows.

So, as a work around I added just a simple contact as a google contact with just the mobile number and then was able to add in waze - then I just deleted the contact...

But I wish somebody from Waze would read this thread and fix this...

Not worth it guys. My android always shows all contacts and there is no customization option available.
Removing account makes no difference.
It also will not allow any image except from Facebook.
For something that wants to be "social" this one really lacks everywhere.
Wife's phone does the same.

I have the same issue.
Running Android 5.0.1 with the latest Waze version.
Under accounts there is the Waze account to sync my contacts although I don't see all in Waze.

Your contacts need to be on your Google Account. If they are not, it won't work.

The forum is almost exclusively used by users. If you want to contact Waze directly, you better pass through the "Support" on the website (ask some questions, and click on links until you see a link on the end of the page stating 'did you not find the answers you are looking for' (or something similar) click on the given link and you will be redirected to a contact form).

I previously had all my contacts on Exchange and I couldn't see anyone from my contacts having Waze. But when I migrated my contacts to GMail I got instantly almost 20 persons from my contacts that were using Waze.

Therefore it's clearly not a problem of permissions, but a problem of non support of exchange contacts by Waze...
