    Hi there,

    Hope one of you experienced android people can help me! I've got a Nexus one (my first Android experience) and it's pretty damn awesome but I've got a small issue with my Contacts.

    I have them filtered on the Handset so that only those marked as Friends or Family under Gmail contacts are shown. I can't help this as otherwise I'd have well over 1000 contacts to scroll through on my phone.

    My issue is that should I add a contact on my phone it doesn't appear. This is obviously because when it's created it has no group membership. It still resolves against SMS etc but is not displayed in the Contacts list. I can (when near a computer) quickly jump onto gmail, manage contacts and put the person into the right group but ideally I'd like to be able to do this on the handset.

    Is there any way at all of editing Google Contact Group membership on the handset? I certainly can't find the option if it exists. Alternatively is it possible to change it so when the contact is create on the handset that it automatically saves as a 'Friend'.

    Many many thanks in advance!

    Tom

    P.S Alternatively if anyone has got any advice on how else I could manage this I'm all ears!

    Found my own answer. Over several hours I cleansed all my old work contacts from My Contacts and removed my family and friends filters. Shame there is no smarter way but at least I can now add contacts in my handset.
