    Newbie here ..... I read to have a separate folder in Google contact and call it Phone and sync that to my LG Optimus V. I am connecting via WiFi for now and it did sync My Contacts but not Phone Contacts. Any help to sync only Phone Contact (separate folder) or is it better to have My Contacts sync and leave well enough alone? Thanks!

    I just have it sync all my contacts. That way, they're available on my pc, and if I need to reset my phone everything reappears when I sign back in to Google. Also, my contacts will follow me when I upgrade to a new phone a few years from now.

    Quick question...this was so close to my issue.

    Everytime I make a new contact now, it automatically adds it as a Google contact. I want to add a contact as a phone contact only - ie it doesn't sync with my Google account. I see no way to allow it to do that...I actually rooted my phone thinking that would enable it..nope.

    Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

    My phone always asks me when I create the contact.

    I turned off sync setting.
    If you change ROM's you loose them.
    If you turn on sync there synchronized.

    The best thing to do is just get a note app that allows you to long press to open a link or put the number in the phone dial page. I think "Note Everything" will.
    I'll check it out and tell you what I find.

    It worked. I put a number on a note page. Exited, then whent back in. The number was blue. Long pressed it. Selected open link, and the dialer page poped up with the number displayed. Just didn't actually hit the call button.

    That's a great tip, Andy. The sync option was a God send for my wife, on her third phone since February. She isn't rough on them, we've just had a couple of bad handsets.

    You can put numerous numbers on the same page, just leave room in between.

    I guess that was what I was looking for...maybe some obvious thing I missed ie A "save as default when entering new contact" that maybe I had checked once very early on.

    I'll try that app, but as the Optimus has so little space normally, I try not to add otherwise useless apps.

    The size of the app with 31 note pages(one URL link per page) is only 2.16 MB
