Need help or mail is useless

I have tried the advice from yahoo. I can not post the link here.

But it still does not work. Anybody having the same issue?

I tried to use the old Skool method by using the cardDAV account, but that does not work anymore on ios5.1

Yahoo should sync contacts using the default account type.

Assuming all your contacts are safe on Yahoo; delete the CardDAV account, then delete and re-add the Yahoo account and see what happens.

I'm not sure if it is possible to add a contact to a list/group and not have it show up in All Contacts, but if you can, those contacts will not sync.

Also, if you are syncing more than one set of contacts there will be a Groups ribbon at the top of the left page. Tap it and make sure you have either All Contacts, or All Yahoo selected.
