So I've run into a new issue that has existed only since I updated to MFT 3.0. Yes, I know this is the Sync thread but it's Phonebook related, which I think falls under the Sync umbrella.

Anyway, two times now the system has selectively deleted part of my phonebook. I only notice because I use a voice command to dial someone and it dials completely the wrong person (i.e. I say "Call Anne" and I hear "Calling Jennifer" back from the system) and, after much head-scratching, I finally checked the Phonebook and saw that 80% of my entries were missing. The system was on Auto Download, so I disabled that in case it was causing issues, deleted the entire phonebook, and attempted to re-download it. It didn't do so when I clicked the button, so I turned Auto Download back to On and eventually (at some point the next day while driving in the car) it re-downloaded everything. At that point, I turned Auto Download back to Off in order to prevent the system from messing with the Phonebook any more.

Fast-forward to today... I try to use voice commands to call my wife and it totally screw it up and starts dialing some random person. Check the Phonebook and magically almost all my contacts are gone - less than 10 out of 200 or so remain. It still has Auto Download set to Off. I deleted everything and, as of right now, have been unable to get it to add any contacts back to the system.

Ignoring the fact that I'd like to smash the system into a brick wall at 70 MPH at this point (because seriously, what's the point of all this technology that's supposed to enhance safety while driving when you have to keep fiddling with it just to make a damn phone call?!?) what else can I do? The dealer just replaced the whole APIM less than a month ago for a different problem and I really shouldn't have to do yet another Master Reset. I'm getting sick and tired of none of this stuff working correctly... for a $28K car, this is ridiculous!

Sooo... has anyone else run into problems like this?

My phone is a Moto Droid 2 Global running Android 2.3. And, again, it worked just fine for 2+ months prior to the MFT 3.0 upgrade.
