Can you check on the second tab, when you click on the folder of the personal contacts resource, if all entries listed on the right hand side have a "remote id"? > So, the interesting question remains: where are my contacts? It seems they are currently only in the cache. You can try this: create a vcard resource, chose any filename. Copy the contacts to that resource. Obviously this still doesn't explain why the main resource didn't write them, but at least you can get them some place safe before investigating deeper. Cheers, Kevin
