Problem Adding Contacts???

    Exported my contacts from my SD card no problem and I had added additional ones since with no problems, then as soon as I add a google account I can no longer add a contact to my contacts list? Enter info - press done and poof vanished, it will not show up on the list.

    If I am in contacts and go to - menu - search - enter contact info the contact I just entered comes up? If I hold the contact and then press edit it comes up under "google contact" wtf? I can't go the google play store without entering an account? What am I doing wrong? What to do to use my contacts list as normal?

    I am rooted and I did have the Dante ROM installed and not knowing any better I dumped the Dante ROM thinking this was the problem, but the problem raises its head only after adding a google account???? And you have to do a hard reset to get rid of your google account? Oh and it seems all calls out get stored as favorites and you can't delete from favorites, in fact when you go to edit them it asks if you want to add to favorites, but they are already showing under favorites?

    I am at a total loss and any advice would be much appreciated.

    There are two lists you can put a contact in - the phone itself or Google Contacts (which you can also access on the web). It has nothing to do with the Play store. If you put a contact in as a Google contact, it's backed up on the site. If you change phones or lose a phone or step on your phone, etc., the new phone will sync up the contact list with no effort on your part.

    The only reason I can see for not putting all contacts in the Google list is paranoia - fear that someone will see your contact list.

    Thanks, I understand it has nothing to do with the Play store, but after entering in the google e-mail in order to access apps, I no longer have control over my contacts, it seems to permanently tie it to google.
    I don't see any option for the second list you mention? Still, it would seem you should be able to enter in a new contact on the phone and be able to save it to your contacts without having to then sync with google in order for it to show up in your list?
    If I go to menu - display options - I get only contact w/phone#- sort list by -view names by? Then after clicking on my google e-mail address a list of options pops up under that all tied to google? Again, I don't see any option to use from SD card or something of that nature?

    Why can't you simply manage your contacts from your phone like every other phone I have had and have? Paranoia or not, why should I have to download all my contacts to google? I have got to be doing something wrong.

    Also, how do you edit your favorites when it does not give you the option?
