idrive phonebook contacts not showing(FIXED)

After an intense search i found the solution of why my contacts wont show after bluetooth paired in the
A-Z idrive screen.
I have a new android galaxy S2 previously my iphone 3g worked fine with the idrive.i thought it was the idrive that it needed an up date because Tmobile store did the transfer of my contacts from my iphone to my android i asummed it was done right so then i thought it was something wrong with the phone but it was not.
The solution is simple
Export all your contacts to gmail account or in my case i did it to tmobile backup
Then delete all your contacts from your phone
Backup you contacts importing them with tmobile backup or from gmail. Log into gmail from you phone and import your contacts
Pair your bluetooth again as new device and you will see all yoyr contacts in 30 to 45 seconds after beeing paired
