Remove Email contacts in SMS contact list
I would just like to ask if someone else had the problem of email contacts showing up in your SMS contact list and how you managed to remove them. I've disabled sync for all my email accounts since the beginning (from the first time I added the account to my phone) and have never enabled it. Also, I have tried setting the phone book to show only contacts with phone numbers and setting the phone book to show only contacts saved to my phone/device memory but whenever I open the Contacts list via the default SMS app, all the extra contacts from my GMail account show up and sometimes I end up adding the email contact instead of the phone. It's so frustrating since a lot of my email contact list are either from strangers I've emailed only once a long time before OR old email addresses of my actual contacts (thus my confusion with the names) that they're not using OR old yahoogroups/school-related email addresses OR service-related addresses like Booking.com and such, since the account I am using with Google Play is the one I've used since I was in High School. It's just too much clutter in my phonebook.
And it's only happening on my SMS contact list. My actual phone's contact list via the default Phone app is clean. -_-
Thanks in advance for the help.
Re: Remove Email contacts in SMS contact list
Welcome to the forums!
Since I let all my contacts sync I never thought about this.
I'm about to go to bed, but I'll check into it tomorrow and post back. Sorry I can't give you any further assistance at the moment.
