    Default How to hide/block from phone book contacts with long distance numbers?

    Here is a problem - I have a number of long distance numbers in the Google contacts (which is shared to other apps, like phone). I use them with a VOIP app, but accidentally it can be easily called from the phone (and be quite expensive).
    How to block/hide/disable them from accidental dialing?
    Search didn't show easy solution...

    Default Re: How to hide/block from phone book contacts with long distance numbers?

    OK. Looks like no one knew.
    I did hide them when in "People" marked all contacts I need to display as "Friends" and customized the view to see friends only.
    It worked. No more sudden outgoing long distance calls.
    Now, after 4.4 update Google screwed it up - in spite of I still have custom view in "People", the Phone app shows ALL contacts (not the custom view) as it was in 4.3. Damn it!
    Anybody can help?
