I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc which is currently running Android 2.3.4
I store all my phone contacts on Google.com/contacts, and not on the phone.
On my Google contacts, my contacts are either in 2 Groups.
1) Phone Contacts
2) Old Contacts
My Phone Contacts are people I currently send messages to, and old contacts are those people I would not likely need to call or text any more – think of it like an archive.
So, on my phone, I have a filter on my contacts to only show the contacts in Phone Contacts – so if someone calls me from my old contacts, my phone will still display there details.
This works really well, but only has one problem.
When I add a new contact, I can’t work out how to assign a new contact into one of these groups. So when I add a new contact, there information is not displayed. I have to turn off my filter – to show all the other contacts to get the information. It’s only when I get access to a computer, I can go on Google.com/contacts to add the contact to a group so I can turn filter back on.
So, does anyone know how to add a new contact into a group on an Android phone, when contacts are managed on Google.com/contacts and in groups?
