    Am I missing something or is that option gone? I know on my Bionic I was able to select "Show contacts with numbers only" but on this thing I can't seem to find that option. My Contacts are a giant mess cluttered with E-Mail account Contacts etc.

    So....is there such an option?

    I don't like having a bunch of stray e-mail address floating around in my contacts. Anyone know how to make it so my GNex only shows the contacts with phone numbers attached?

    Phone dialer shows contacts with numbers only, but not in the People app.

    I had this same problem. The solution that I was able to come up with is to log into Gmail on my computer and look at my contacts. Then I created a new group called 'With Numbers'. I then checked the box of any contact that had a phone number associated with it (approx. 400) I then just added these contacts to that group.

    This is more tedious of method than I would have preferred, but it worked for me when I went in to the people app, use the custom selection, and only display that group.

    The only problem that I think this might cause is when you go to add a New Contact. If it's possible to add the contact to the list as well, then there shouldn't be a problem.

    I'm sorry if this isn't very clear, if you have any questions, let me know.

    Yeah I miss that too. I went through my whole list and "starred" the ones I wanted to show, then used that "show starred" option.
