GetHuman-keithfai's next move: go to the Google help center.
Google doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-keithfai will want to follow the link below to head to their help center. We will check on GetHuman-keithfai later to make sure it's all set or try to help escalate.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman-keithfai may need:

The issue in GetHuman-keithfai's own words
Recent (*******) update to Gmail and G Contacts has broken Contacts. The help page for Contacts explains how to go back to the old version of Contacts but its data is wrong -- there is no link to "go back to old contacts." Google Contacts Help does not provide a way to let Google know that their help page is broken or contains bad information. How are we supposed to report these sorts of problems? Why do they feel the need to make updates to Gmail and Contacts without taking into consideration that every change like this costs the World millions of dollars in wasted productivity while the millions of users all try to figure out cosmetic level changes like these. **Second of all, the new G Contacts downgrades the feature for setting the page density so that you can see a lot of contacts on screen at one time. This regression of a useful feature is just stupid. Don't replace working technology with new versions that take away important features.
GetHuman-keithfai did not yet indicate what Google should do to make this right.
I have an issue with Google too
