Hello All!

I am honestly pretty ignorant when it comes to messing with my phone so please bear with me. I am trying to add a new contact on my phone and something new just occurred. When I press the icon to add a new contact, it is requiring me to choose a corporate account in which to sync my contacts to before it even allows me to enter the contact. There does not appear to be an option to skip this. I do not want to sync my contacts with anything. I want my contacts on my local phone storage only. Is this something specific to just my phone? Any input on this? I am currently using a rooted LG spectrum running Avatar ROM version 3.0.1-1434-20130723-vs920. Any help would be great!

Which Contacts app? The stock Google Contacts app only asks whether you want the contact to go to Google or Phone (or SIM if it's a GSM phone). AFAIR, Go Contacts also doesn't have anything about a corporate account.

If this is a job-supplied phone, they may have replaced the Contacts app with one that requires all contacts to be added to some corporate account.
