Is Game Center information stored on the device or servers?

I restored my iPhone 4 and logged in with a new Apple ID. I purchased Age of Zombies on it and loaded it up for it to give me around 20 achievements. I played this game before I restored it but it was on another Apple ID not associated with the Game Center account I'm using now. I changed my Game Center nickname to my old one as well and changed my old one to something random but I don't think that has anything to do with that cause people change those often. Ideas?

Some of the data is stored on the device but it is synced with the servers every-time you open GC or use GC in an app.

Can achievements be completed while offline?

(and then synced with Game Center the next time my iTouch is online?)

I wish, but it laggs as *** and has often no connection at all (meaning loading, loading, loading without any success) GC sucks in this regard on my device, but perhabs my slow internet is fault!?

I have a problem. I played a bunch of Beast Boxing 3D on my iPod offline, collected around 10 achievements, and when I got it online to sync them, they won't.

The game itself shows me the achievements, but Game Center won't take them. I guess those are lost forever. How annoying.

So is this is a frequent problem?
