    Is there a way to get a better contacts app to replace the current one? Specifically I want the ability to only sync certain groups from my google contacts, and not everyone I've ever had e-mail correspondence with.

    Thanks!

    Yeah this was pretty annoying. I ended up having to log in to my Google account and delete around 250 contacts. It's kind of a mess.

    Did you add those people to your contacts? I have emailed several people from my Gmail account who's are not in my contacts and they didn't sync to my phone. Although I do see benefit if you add contacts who you don't necessarily want to see in your phone contacts.

    These is an option to only display contacts with phone numbers.

    I actually like the stock contacts, except for 2 glaring issues:

    1) If you have a different email app set, it's not presented as an option when you click on an email address from within Contacts. You can only choose [Gmail] or [Message] (SMS)

    2) No function to launch maps/route based on address.
