    I think this is a common situation. A family has one calendar that shoould be shared to all members of the family and visible on all phones. Then their email should be able to be kept separate. I have figured out how to do the contacts. I have all of them at the main family gmail account and each person can create their own group and associate their contacts.

    The problems with contacts is that I can set my contact list to default to - Phil's Contacts nor can I set the search to limit the resutls to my contacts even though I have gone into People and selected my group.

    And even though I have gone into /menu/settings/accounts and synch and set the exchange active to point to the family calendar, contacts and email and the google option to point to gmail only I still get contacts coming thru from the google account.

    Perhaps their is a better app out there or I have it configured wrong.

    What I want to do is only sync the contacts, calendar and mail from the "Family" account. And then keep my google mail set to my personal account.

    By using a family account, you're overcomplicating things. Give each person their own account which is used for everything. You can share calendars amongst each other.

    I'm ok with the calendar change but how do I setup one global list of contacts? So when I click compose message I don't get a drop down to select exchange or google contact? Which I don't get why that happens when I told it not to sync google contacts.
