Hi all
Went into Add Contacts / Friends from contacts
and when search contacts nothing happens
no friends show up in facebook option either
So
opened gmail / add contact, just added Name and phone number.

Repeated above and contact appeared

Hope this helps

Hi,
I add the same problem and while I could not get my contact to show up. below will show how I was able to send the address to my contact (which was what I was trying to achieve)

This is how I did:
I pressed on the Menu icon and found the address I wanted to sent
To the right of the address there is a Share icon
This opens up a Send Location screen with the list (incomplete) of contacts
At the bottom of the screen there is a More button next to Send
Clicked on it and there I was able to choose how I could send the address. I just texted it to my contact and they got the address.

This by no mean solves that issue but I hope this help some.

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
.


Unfortunately, Sony Xperia phones do not have the " Contacts to display" option, so this trick will not work unless someone else knows another way of enabling such an option in the Xperia contacts app (NB/ all my contacts show in Xperia app anyway).

Your instructions are not clear enough. "Manage contacts" where? what app? which menu?

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.

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

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 had the same issue. Went into Android Settings --> General --> Accounts. There was no Waze account. Clicked on Add Account. Scrolled thought the list and put a dot on Waze. It took a couple of minutes to sync accounts. Afterwards all My Contacts were listed in Waze. Best wishes.
