I recently decided to centralize all my contacts into iCloud (I had them split between iCloud and Google Contacts). I went to Google Contacts, exported them in the vCard (for iOS Contacts) format. Then I went to iCloud and imported them all successfully.
Then I went to my iPhone, disabled my Google account for contacts and removed them from my iPhone when prompted. However, when I view the contacts on my iPhone now, none of the ones I imported from Google show up. They are completely absent.
When I view contacts on iCloud.com and my Macbook, everyone is where they're supposed to be. The only place there's an issue is on my iPhone.
- Disabling and enabling contact sync on my iCloud account several times on my iPhone
- Logging out and logging back into my iCloud account on my iPhone
- Made sure when I'm viewing contacts on iPhone, there isn't some additional list that the imported contacts were grouped into
