    Is the contact list associated with a Yahoo account like the people who are experiencing the same thing in the following link?

    It just happened to me too. My daughter won't show up in contacts, and if I search for her by name, the contact says false under her name. If I delete the word "false", it comes back and does the same thing again.

    Press and hold the power button and the home button together. You'll hear a camera shutter sound.

    I post images using the app. Both the iMore forum app and TapaTalk. It's easy that way.

    Never heard of that either. Post a screenshot using the iMore Forums app on your device.

    I don't know what it means either but it's happening to me too. My contacts are suddenly screwed. Says "false false" under some of the names. It's only on the contacts that sync with iCloud.

    It turns out your assumption was correct. I disabled my yahoo contacts and immediately solved the problem. Thanks for the tip.
