Apparently Simple Contacts does not store the contacts in the Android system like most other contacts apps. Seems like it intentionally does not want the list to be used with other apps like K-9.

Sounds logical…
Thank you.

But if we could choose a default or alternative address book, then those not wanting to co-mingle personal and professional addresses, could do so. My initial response to browsing all the phone contacts.

The culprit was the contacts app.
Contacts were stored like non visible.
Changed that - everything fine.
Thank you guys
