Default how do I stop auto sync for contacts

Contacts on my Galaxy S3 keep duplicating.

Tried merging/duplicating contacts in gmail contacts which works momentarily but then reverts back to duplication of contacts on my sim card.

Easier option is to manually sync contacts when required.

How can we stop auto sync of contacts from Galaxy S3 sim card to gmail contacts?


I am happy with calender features

Welcome aboard. Here's hoping you'll find a solution for this here on the forums. You might wanna try asking this question inside of your device's area of support. Hopefully someone there might have an answer for you.

Good luck.

What variation of the GS3 do you have? Your wireless carrier?
