    Default Transferring contacts to new phone, keeping phone and email contacts separate

    I have just bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 - very nice looking device - to replace my old and clunky Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. And I want to transfer all my phone contacts across. On my Xperia, I've got "Phone contacts", and gmail contacts. I tried to import all my phone contacts by first exporting them to a simgle file, and transferring that file to the Samsung. And now I've got this vast list containing, it seems, everybody who I've ever called or emailed, including various names who I don't recognize at all. Is there any way (maybe a specialized app) of keeping my phone contacts and gmail contacts separate? And how do I manage my vast list of contacts?

    Thanks,
    -A.

    if you have kept phone contact and Gmail contact separate on Xperia just sync the contacts to gmail id.

    use the same on s3 and it will be separate. that's the only easy way.
