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

I also have this problem. One FB friend who lives 1200 miles away is listed--not too helpful. My husband joined, using his phone number, but Waze doesn't "see" either of us as contacts. Two contacts from my phone's contact list are shown on Waze with the "suggest this friend join Waze" connection. Huh? :?

Does anyone know how to fix this?

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

Bump, and ditto. I'm running Waze 3.8.1.0 on an ATT based Samsung Galaxy S4 with Android 4.4.2. I have 1000+ contacts on my phone, yet Waze shows me exactly 6 as options to make a friend in Waze. None of those 6 are waze users. Experimentally, I created a new contact for my daughter (already one of the 1000+) and now Waze sees that contact for her, but not the original.

Is there not any official tech-support for the app? I can't seem to find anything via waze.com. Thanks for any suggestions - looks like there's several of us in the same sitch.

Does Waze have permissions to access your Contacts?
