    Curious how best to Manage my contacts, I used to be on a BES where any changes I made either in Outlook or on my Blackberry my contacts were updated. Now on my iPhone & Android OS I'm using Google Contacts and managing from the Web... but my Galaxy is also using Active Directory, so it should sync contacts with Outlook also.

    Should I manage them in Outlook or Google?

    Outlook = 345

    Google = 480
    My Contacts (480)
    Coworkers (103)
    Family (24)
    Friends (59)
    Google + (145)
    Starred in Android (5)

    I sync my contacts primarily with Google so I have family, friends & co-workers. The Galaxy also syncs contacts with Facebook, that is working fine and I have some new contacts that aren't in Google...

    Curious about something else too, the images are from Google, not always changing like Facebook, is there a way to prioritize the pictures in contacts to use Facebook (profile) images 1st + Google contact info...?

    Thanks, Shane

    i dont think you can in all honesty, i think googles pictures take priority :( facebook pictures come out blurred and distorted, where G+ comes out crystal clear(well for me anyway)

    Yes I don't put contacts to my phone when putting in new ones I always select my Google account. I am always updating the rom on my unit and don't a full wipe and it always syncs my contacts back. If you have extra contacts go into settings then sync and it will show you what apps are syncing to your unit.
