if recent calls to create a new contact, it is not found in the phonebook contacts. Same thing applies to new contact created directly from an application, eg maps. The new contact appears only searching with Spotlight. Do not search through the phonebook. Nor is synchronized in Outlook - Windows Vista. Many thanks to those who help me to solve this problem.
I just created a new thread on this topic. No responses yet, but this response solved by problem. If "show all contacts" is highlighted tap it it make "hide all contacts" display. Previously invisible contacts become visible
