Lync 2011 for Mac not access local contacts properly

We are running into an issue with our contacts pretty consistently with our macs running lync 2011 against our 2013 lync server.

Phone numbers attached to local contacts won't display. So when a user loads a local contact in Lync there are no phone numbers listed. However when they load a contact from the Global address list the phone numbers work just fine.

Has anyone run into this? Have a fix?
We are running the latest version.

So when you say 'local contacts' you mean the contacts you manually created within your outlook?
What format are you using when entering phone number for those contacts?

The issue was the local contacts were not syncing properly in the Lync client.
This issue was resolved in the patch released only a few weeks after I posted the original question.
important to note the patch applies to the Lync Server, not the client.
