Contact List Question - Maybe I'm being unreasonable...

    This might be a weird question...

    So I have something like 470 people in my Google Contacts under "All Contacts" and only about 60 under "My Contacts."

    I like it that way, because then my Droid contact list isn't full to the brim with people whose numbers I really don't need at the touch of my fingertips...

    That being said, however, it would be very cool if somehow the "All Contacts" section of my Google Contacts could be used to identify incoming phone calls.

    For instance:

    I want my Brother's phone number in My Contacts so I can call him.
    I don't want my ex girlfriend's Stacey's number in My Contacts because I don't need to call her.
    I still have my ex-girlfiend's contact info under "All Contacts" because there's no reason to delete it outright.
    I would, however, like for my Droid's caller ID to tell me that the person calling me is "Stacey" instead of "unknown caller."

    Am I asking too much? I know I could just add everyone to "My Contacts" and that would work, I just don't necessarily want 500 people in my Droid phone book. It's unnecessary.

    Any thoughts? Or even apps that do this?

    YOU ARE NOT ASKING TOO MUCH!

    How is this main PHONE function overlooked in a major 2.0 upgrade???

    Major letdown. If it isn't already I would post this on the issues list for Android.

    Well to do this you would have to have all contacts on the phone but just my contacts shown. Seems like it could be done but not sure if there is a way

    Agreed. Like I said, I'm being pretty specific and picky, so I understand if this isn't doable, but if it is, that'd be pretty freaking nice.
