Address and Name field not working Gmail


I am using Advance REST CLIENT for testing and tested that in php code as well.

<a href="https://developers.google.com/google-apps/contacts/v3/?hl=en#creating_contacts" rel="nofollow">here is the link</a>

I am trying to create contact at Gmail, Everything works fine but the Address is not being inserted and not even the name. Even If I use the same XML as present in the docs

<atom:entry xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:gd="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005"> <atom:category scheme="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#kind" term="http://schemas.google.com/contact/2008#contact"/> <gd:name> <gd:givenName>Elizabeth</gd:givenName> <gd:familyName>Bennet</gd:familyName> <gd:fullName>Elizabeth Bennet</gd:fullName> </gd:name> <atom:content type="text">Notes</atom:content> <gd:email rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#work" primary="true" address="liz@gmail.com" displayName="E. Bennet"/> <gd:email rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#home" address="liz@example.org"/> <gd:phoneNumber rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#work" primary="true"> (206)555-1212 </gd:phoneNumber> <gd:phoneNumber rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#home"> (206)555-1213 </gd:phoneNumber> <gd:im address="liz@gmail.com" protocol="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#GOOGLE_TALK" primary="true" rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#home"/> <gd:structuredPostalAddress rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#work" primary="true"> <gd:city>Mountain View</gd:city> <gd:street>1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy</gd:street> <gd:region>CA</gd:region> <gd:postcode>94043</gd:postcode> <gd:country>United States</gd:country> <gd:formattedAddress> 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy Mountain View </gd:formattedAddress> </gd:structuredPostalAddress> </atom:entry>

it still doesn't add the address and the names, I am afraid if this is something Google is working on ?

I have seen these questions

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20761210/google-contacts-api-not-adding-name-and-address-in-google-contact http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20761210/google-contacts-api-not-adding-name-and-address-in-google-contact https://github.com/google/gdata-java-client/issues/153

Anyone who can shed light on it, if this is something under development ?



Great after struggling with this since 40 hours, I am able to find an answer , you need to specify this in header

gdata-version: 3.0

Google should update their API details for PHP too.

Hope this helps for future fellows.
