    I have a contact list from GMail. I have a contact list named Corporate (whatever that is). I have a contact list from my ActiveSync business account (Exchange server). I have a contact list from Phone.

    How can these be reduced to one?

    Certain programs (Better Cut) see contacts from one list but not others.

    Any help to resolve the confusion appreciated.

    I had the same problem after having contacts from google, outlook, and facebook. I ended up with three groups of separate contacts - annoying.

    Now, do you want to eliminate the groups, or just filter them? If you just want to filter them, you can check/uncheck which groups you want to show.

    As far as eliminating them, what I had to do was this... I wanted google as my main source of contacts so that I could have them sync all of the time to stay up-to-date. I backed up my gmail contacts to the sd card - then deleted ALL contacts on my phone. After that, I restored my contacts under the GOOGLE account section - and kept it like that.

    Now, I have one, clean group of contacts that is always synched!

    Does that make any sense?
