    Thank you for these instructions. They were very helpful, but when I follow these steps I can get it to work, but the actual group member names are not listed. Only the Contact Group Name: and then under Members: it repeats the Contact Group name (and does not list the members. Any idea what I'm doing wrong and how to fix the problem?

      Same here. I get the name of the group and the admins and notes, but NO contacts listed at all. It's highly frustrating.
