First off, importing SIM contacts is not going to do anything for you, since the iPhone does not store contacts on the SIM. That function was just added to allow the importing of contacts from an old phone.
What troubleshooting have you done to the phone so far? First is to power the phone off/on, the second is a reset. This is done by holding the power and home buttons together until you see the Apple logo and then releasing, ignoring the slide to power off screen. If no help, then a restore, first from a backup, and then as a new phone if necessary.
I'll imagine that you shouldn't have to do more than the first two to get everything going again.
I have this very same problem. New calls that come in on my recent call list that I want to label and add to my contacts aren't added, but they turn up in a spotlight search.
However, when I sync to iTunes they are added by going to the INFO tab and clicking on the box that reads "Add contacts created outside this group to (name of your contact list)"
Yes, this is lame and I dont remember having this problem in the past, but that's the only workaround I"ve discovered.
I hope they fix this.
