I have roughly 1,000 contacts in Exchange server and the first time I connected my Jolla to the Exchange server, I downloaded my whole contact list, even with avatar pics. No problem until then. But now, after using my Jolla for more than 1.5 months, I started to realize that some of my synchronized contacts have disappeared completely from my Jolla! When I check my contacts on Exchange server, they are all there, none of them have been removed. I put the setting "Sync to device only". I also tried with "Sync two-ways", but the problem remains. This is a huge problem because I couldn't make some important phone calls because the contact had disappeared from the phonebook.

Therefore, there must be a synchronization bug between Jolla and Exchange.

If it can be of any help, I remember having the same problem with my N9 until they fixed the problem in the last N9 software update.

I have the same behavior with my google account. Manual syncing from the account page didn't do anything, so I re-added the whole account to get my missing contacts.

@chinauser - Are you sure the contacts didn't get merged ? for example if you have sync contacts from other accounts or if you created local contacts with the same/similar names ?

@VDVsx Yes, I'm sure it's not merged with other contacts, that was my first thought actually. Some of my contacts have no Facebook/Google profile and they are gone. Every day, I keep losing some contacts. At this speed, I will have no contacts left at the end of the year! :)

The interesting thing is that I also have a Lumia phone synchronized with Exchange server for the same contacts. No problem with Lumia.

@chinauser - Does the problem persist if you recreate the account ? Assuming you are running latest SW.

@VDVsx I will recreate my account over the weekend when I don't need to use my work Exchange email. Anyway, that remains a problem that needs to be fixed.

After 1 month and recreating my Exchange account, I had no contact disappearing again, so I will close this question.
