    How do I stop My Samsung Galaxy S from syncing my Google "contacts"? These aren't really even contacts, just a random collection of fools I've received emails from or sent to at one point.

    Like the lady at the front desk of a hotel I stayed at 7 years ago who emailed me a confirmation. Sheesh! Can't I sever connection with this person for good?

    How do I turn this madness off?

    That works indeed fine for the normal contact directory, however if you start a new message and you click the contact button there, you still see all these email adresses appear from the previous gmail link. So my question is, how do I delete the gmail contacts from my messages contact list (not the phone list, this one is fine)?
    Many thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.

    Hi johan45333333 did you ever work out how to stop this? I now have this problem too - my contacts list is as I want it (showing only the contacts I want it to) but when I go into contacts via messaging it shows all of my contacts - including facebook contacts - which I dont want it to. It also brings up two copies of the same mobile number for each contact in messaging. Anybody work out how to fix this? :thinking:

    +1 for that. This seriously pisses me off. I'll have to stop using Google Contact sync.
