Waze­ displays contacts th­at are synced to a Go­ogle account, meanin­g if any contacts are­ saved in another pla­ce, Waze will not rea­d them. Ensure­ you've synced your c­ontacts with a Google­ account so that all ­your contacts will ap­pear properly in Waze­.

Been happening to me as well. Some friends on Waze don't show as belonging to Waze.

Even after following the FAQ I have been unable to add ANYONE from my contacts (because none of my contacts are showing up) and I can't even manually add the phone number into the "add contact" location either. Galaxy S5. My friend who's the one who suggested this app to me is also having the same problem.

My issue is that this app is on the very device that has all of my contacts on it, the contacts that pertain to my phone so why is it that giving access to this app for some reason does not produce this function properly? Why do I ALSO have to sync my data to Google, which I do not wish to do?

That friend may have 'Go Invisible' checked. Send the invite...

Re: Problem: Waze don't find contacts

Waze doesn't take contacts from exchange and similar accounts. If you want to see your contact, copy (move) contact into your phone. It's workarround only...

Any success here? My iPhone5 is working perfectly, but my 5s is exhibiting the same exact behavior you're seeing. Settings->Waze doesn't show any Contacts settings. Settings -> Privacy -> Contacts doesn't show Waze. I've verified my phone number multiple times. Reinstalling didn't resolve it, and it never asked me for permission to access my contacts.

SOLVED! Once Waze asked for permission to access my contacts, everything was solved. The trick was to get Waze to actually *ASK FOR PERMISSION*. That turned out to be challenging. Instructions said that attempting to add friends from contacts would cause the permission grant request, so I figured I'd try that.

Instructions said to go to friends (on V4 for iOS, tap the head in lower right of main map screen) and then click the 'Add Friends' icon, but I couldn't see an 'Add Friends' icon from the Friends pane. I finally found that pretty much by accident; if you swipe down on the Friends pane, the Search and '+' boxes will appear. Press '+', select 'Find friends from contacts', and then Waze will ask for permission. Once I did that, I was able to search contacts directly from the navigation window.
