    Default How to change where contacts are saved by default?

    I searched a couple sites/forums but nothing really addressing the LG G2.

    Im trying to figure out how to make my G2 save new contacts by default under my gmail account.

    I currently have 2 gmails accounts on my phone works and personal
    noticed the contacts I saved under the messaging app were saved by default under "phone"
    and the contacts I save under the contacts app keep trying to save by default under my work gmail (which I added after my personal email to my phone) so I removed the work email and the G2 default to save under "phone"

    ive checked all sync settings. personal gmail is set to sync everything, work was only set to emails. ive even removed all emails and just did personal its like my G2 hates me and refuses to save contacts under gmail.
    Is there something im missing?
    its kinda frustrating

    Odd... Mine always uses the last account I selected, if I create a contact and save it to certain Google account, the next time I add a contact it defaults to that same account. Is that not what yours does? There is no option to set a "default" account to use in the stock firmware.

    BTW, I have the Verizon vs980 variant with stock 4.4.2 firmware.

    Default Re: How to change where contacts are saved by default?

    Hi Everyone
    Merry Christmas
    I'm having the same issue as above with my new LG G2, i saved a few numbers on my phone but they wouldn't sync to my gmail account, so after searching a bit i found that the Contacts app was saving the numbers automatically on the phone memory.
    So now when i add a new number, at the top i must select "Gmail" as a location where to save, and this way the contact syncs fine.
    But i can't set it to default as Gmail, it's set as Phone.
    I tried a few times to save under Gmail but everytime i save a number it is set to Phone by default.
    This is frustrating because this means i must remember where to save the numbers otherwise they won't sync.
    didn't have this issue with my Nexus 5.
    Can someone help please
    It's a G2 D802 on 4.4.2 kitkat, not modified in any way

    Thanks in advance
