Hello Andre,

When you say that the first 128 contacts are synchronized, do you mean the contacts present in Thunderbird or on the Android device ?
To which account belong these contacts ? The local phone account, Google, another account ? (you may find this information when you view the details of the contacts: it could be displayed at the top of the contact, or as the "contact type")

BirdieSync version 2.3.2.2 only synchronizes contact belonging to the default local phone account (not Google, etc.).
The next beta version 2.3.3.0 only synchronizes contacts present in BirdieSync account. So with this version, it would be necessary to import the contacts in BirdieSync account if you want them to be synchronized in Thunderbird at the very first synchronization.

The contact is local Phone contact.
And it´s only shown in the android phone. Not at Thunderbird...
Birdy say´s that 1 contact to synchronize is but nothing happen...
I try to edit the Contact in thunderbird und synchronize to android. it works the now i got two enties in the phone under the same contact.
one account named Telefon an the second named "only telefon ( not synchronized ) Contact". But the second was where edit from Birdie....

It seems that the account used by BirdieSync and the "Telefon" account are different. That may explain why the contacts are not synchronized. Which model of Android device do you have ?

You may try BirdieSync 2.3.3.0 beta-c.
It now synchronizes contacts only present in BirdieSync account and avoid this kind of problems with the default local contact account.
Note that if you have contacts located in the other account, it may be necessary to import them in BirdieSync account if you want to transfer them in Thunderbird at first synchronization.
Ensure to have a recent BACKUP of your contacts before synchronizing with this version (desktop and mobile device).
