    Can anyone explain how contacts works please, and how best to set it up?

    At one point, I ended up with not just duplicate contacts, but quadrooples!

    1) How can I remove ALL my contacts from the sim card, keeping just what's on the device (backed up to MSD)

    2) I also see duplicates caused by contacts being on the device AND on Google. Very confusing:-/

    Any help explaining how the contacts list works, I'd be very grateful for.


    And why does this forum keep 'blacking out' on my laptop;-) Might Addblocker cause that?

    Hello. It would be helpful if you could register to continue here.
    I will take a guess you have a Samsung, or take their system as a guide.
    You may have a menu - Contacts to Display. On Samsungs you were also able to Merge Sim, Samsung, Device and Google Contacts.
    You really want them all on Google Contacts so they are always in the cloud.
    Device Contacts could be saved to a pc program, and Samsung Contacts to a Samsung cloud account.
    Sim contacts can be imported on Nexus / Motorola / pure Android type devices.
    (sim contacts would only hold name and number and had very little storage space for many).

    Let us know what device you have.
