Yeah - I DON'T want those contacts w/o phone numbers in my messaging. Google insists on syncing them. When you click on the 'add contacts' button on the phone, it shows ALL contacts you have in Gmail - the 2000 or so I have - and I don't want it to.

The list of Messaging contacts seems to be filtered differently or whatever from when you actually click the Contacts app. The Contacts App only shows people with phones, but my Messaging Contacts app (ugh this is confusing!) shows ALL contacts. Hopefully that's clear? :P

So - I want to either
a) Filter the contacts displayed in Messaging Contacts, or
b) Only sync the group 'My Contacts' from Gmail (which is people with phones) to my S3, which I presume will clear out the unneeded contacts from the Messaging Contacts list.

:P It's amazing how hard this is to explain - Contacts, Messaging Contacts, My Contacts, contacts... they're all different things! Blecch.
