Weird Bluetooth Contact Sync Issue

[I also posted this in the sedan forum, but since it happened in my daughters coupe, I thought I should post it here as well.]

Whenever my phone syncs contacts with my Elantra, a few contacts always show up as just the phone number with no name. I tried deleting and recreating the contacts, compared them to other contacts to spot any differences, everything I could think of. They continued to show only as a number with no name.

Finally today I spotted a pattern, but it seemed too weird to be the problem. I then had two other people try it, one in my car and one in their own Elantra and they found the same pattern!

Here's what I found:

Any contact that starts with *im will not load the contact name. Seems weird, but I have tested it several times now. For me, these contacts matching the pattern would not load:

Kim P
Kim S
Jim W
Jim D
Tim R
Simply Coffehouse

Has anyone else seen this?

What a weird problem. I wonder if Hyundai knows about this? Sounds like a bug. Its likely easy to fix in a patch if you are a programmer. You should write a letter or email to Hyundai.
