Google contacts not syncing properly with Contacts

Oct 16, 2014

I've had my MI4 for a couple of weeks now, and after downloading the play store (and training the accelerometer for about half an hour!) everything has been great, except that my Google contacts are not syncing properly. It seems to get a certain number of emails, and downloads the stubs for all the contacts (in my Gmail emails?). Unfortunately, all of the important stuff for a phone, like phone numbers and addresses, is missing. I tried removing the account, rebooting and adding it again but no joy - exactly the same problem. When I try and edit the contacts they all have "Phone-only, unsynced contact" with my gmail address account under it in the "Imported from" section at the bottom just above the "Delete contact" button.

Has anyone else had this? Got around it?
