    hi ppl i just got my Samsung galaxy s3 and I more or less fixed all my contacts!

    But i have 1 big problem!!

    Not all my contacts have a phone number. some I only know from FB, skype or Google mail info

    I would like to se an icon(or the number nent to the name) that signals to me that this contact have a phonenumber to it.

    Just like i can se a icon that showes me that this contact can be contackted with Google, Fb or Skype!


    What can I do to se that i have a phone number added to a contact??

    thx alot ppl!

    Welcome to the forums :)

    The only way to really do this is to change what accounts you have showing in your contacts list.

    Like I know I have 500 FB friends and a bunch of contacts via Google+ but I only show my Gmail contacts, that way I don't have like 500 contacts without phone numbers.

    So i should only show contacts that I know I have a phone number on but it is still not shown?

    how does that help?

    then i should never add any accounts at all!

    It depends on how you put the contacts in. One thing you could do is not add the contacts from Facebook, and just add the contacts you have phone numbers to. Then to get the contacts from Facebook, you sync your Facebook account to your contacts. An icon for Facebook appears beside the contact names taken from Facebook. If you have a contact who is both on your phone and Facebook, you can merge them and you will have 2 icons beside the name.

    Ofc i could, but then I will not have all my other contacts.

    What I want to get is ALL my contacts and some where i can se I have phone number with!


    So when I look at the list i know who I can call and who I can only msg!

    Therefore I hoped there was a way to make a icon that showes this contact have a phon number

    Typically when you sync things like Facebook and such there is an option, "Only sync existing contacts". I am assuming you didn't do this, well you want to, otherwise it will show all those contacts you don't have numbers for. And again it should have this option for whatever you are syncing.

    XPhone shows which contacts do or don't have phone numbers.
