Gmail Contacts Help

Every email I send/receive, their email/info is going into my contact list. What do I have to do to just have my contacts be my personal people and not everyone that is in my gmail?

Re: Gmail Contacts Help

There are a couple of ways but it depends what you mean by "personal people".  If you want to exclude those contacts that are email only:


     From the online manual:



     Contacts Display Options
     1. From the Home screen, touch Contacts.
     2. Touch Menu ➔ Display options to set these options:
         • Touch Only contacts with phones to restrict display to contacts
         with phone numbers.
        • Touch Phone to choose contacts for display by group.
        • Touch an account to choose display categories.
     3. Touch to save options
That's the fastest way to list only telephone numbers.  You can also "star" your personal people:
Mark contacts with a star to identify them as Favorites.
Favorites display on the Favorites tab in the Phone Dialer, for fast
dialing or messaging, and are indicated by the in Contacts.
Creating Favorites
1. From the Home screen, touch Contacts.
2. Touch and hold on a contact, then select Add to favorites
from the pop-up menu.
– or –
Touch a contact to display it, then touch the Star at
the top right of the screen
