    I must be overlooking something. I am simply trying to get my phone to keep contacts synced with Google Contacts and I don't want "All" contacts -- just "My Contacts".

    Every time I send an email in Gmail, it automatically adds it to all contacts. It is going to bloat my phone.

    I had this problem too, but it's not that bad to work around.

    1. Go to Gmail Contacts, and export "All Contacts" to your hard drive
    2. Do the same with "My Contacts"
    3. Delete "All Contacts" from Gmail, then import "My Contacts" as .csv back
    4. Sync with DX
    5. Uncheck "Sync contacts" under Accounts afterwards

    Workaround not that bad? What about adding and deleting contacts? You aren't syncing anymore.
