I don't user icloud backup. I have a iphone 7. When I enter new contacts in my phone, they show up on my contacts.google.com on my laptop. When I add new contacts to contacts.google.com, it will show up on my iphone 7. So I guess when I am entering new contacts, it is saving contacts to google cloud, and not to the phone or to the sim card.

Today, I noticed that I was not able to send out emails from my gmail app on my iphone. The email just sat in outbox. I looked up the issue and some people said to do a hard reset and it should work. It did not. Another solution was to delete the gmail account and re-add the gmail account. That worked. However, when you go to my text messages, a majority of them will only show the number, it will not have the name. Some will have the name. I don't see any rhyme or reason on how some have names but some have numbers. But when I go to my contacts on my iphone, all my contacts are there and are still syncing from my contacts.google.com and vice versa.

So what is the issue? How do I replicate to make the names appear in my text?
