    Hi there,

    Does anybody know how to change the default location when saving contacts?

    The problem I have is this:
    1. The first time I saved a contact it opened a menu offering a choice of location, i.e. 'SIM', 'Device' or 'Samsung account'.
    2. I erroneously chose 'Device' not realising that this would not then enable me to sync the contacts with my Samsung account online.
    3. The next time I saved a contact, it didn't ask where I wanted to save it -- instead it seems to have set the default location to 'Device'.
    4. I would like to change this default location so that it saves any new contacts to the 'Samsung account'.

    I do realise that, for each subsequent contact, one can manually access a menu which allows you to select a location other than 'Device' -- assuming one remembers to do so. However, I would like to reset the default so that it saves directly to 'Samsung account' without me having to remember to change the location from 'Device' to 'Samsung account' every time.

    Does anybody know how to change this default?

    Thanks very much and regards.

    In theory, the last place you save a contact to SHOULD the be default storage location for the subsequent ones...

    Thanks SpookDroid. You are, or course, totally correct.

    Sometimes the most obvious solution is the one that's hardest to see if you're looking too deep.
    (Or if you're just daft like me)

    Thanks again!
