Default how do you manage contacts and sync?

On my old Samsung Admire I was syncing with gmail, and facebook and I had a good list of contacts with mostly pics of everyone too.

Got my new LG Motion did the same and it's like everyone I have ever emailed or anything is in my contact list now, it's a mess and I lost some local numbers that I never put into gmail or facebook.

I have a backup of my old Admire files on my pc is there a better way of doing this?

I don't want multiple copies of contacts.

The best way, that i use that is, is just sync everything, literally sync my Google+, Gmail, and Facebook, and anything else i can find that has a sync button...Then i choose under the Settings within the contacts page, and choose Accounts, then i click on which accounts i wish to show. All of the data overlays each other too, so regardless of whether my Google+ is toggled on or off, my Mom is still going to have her contact linked with Google+...Since the main account i have checked is Gmail.

Hope this helps!

Can't find contact settings? What does it look like?

While on the contacts page tap the menu button, the far right softkey. Then see display options.
