Contacts on the N4
just got my N4 today but im running into a problem with contacts.
id like to keep my phone contacts separate from the google contacts. seeing 300+ contacts instead of my 160 i keep in my phone is a pain, and then seeing several variations of the same contacts (diff numbers or emails or even the same info repeated) is a PITA.
Or at least have a folder in my google contacts (if im forced to do so) that only has my phone contacts and NOT the gmail contacts, but this may also include a chosen few of the google contacts.
iv come from a HTC Desire and the work around i figured for the same problem then was to use local contacts. its listed as phone. (with sim, google,google show auto contacts, and phone as contact view options).
the problem is on the nexus 4 i only have the option for google contacts.
ok that is great for when numbers change and a back up, but it means i get all my damn google contacts (email additions etc) on my phone, or a variation of the contacts i keep on my phone.
(also think i may have deleted a few contacts i didnt need on my phone but kept in my google contacts without realising there google contacts on gmail.)
