I use solely Google contacts as my contacts repository and display only the Google "My Contacts" group in my contacts list.

When looking at contacts details, most of them have in the "connection" field both the Google and the SIM logo - implying that this is a fusioned contact between Google and the SIM (both small logos are also visible in the contact list).

Strange thing nr 1: When I limit the display to "SIM" only the list is empty. So what does that SIM logo mean?

Strange thing nr 2: in contact details I can separate both contacts (Google and SIM) - I am asked if I really want to separate both contacts and, abracadabra, the SIM contact is gone. The SIM logo is not displayed anymore and the SIM contact list is still empty.

I have no idea how the logos got there, some contacts have it, some others not -- apparently randomly (there is nothing special in contacts which have them and do not -- all are managed from my Google account).

Any ideas on how to fix this (= remove the SIM logo in batch if this is a bug -or- understand what the SIM logo really means)

Than you!

Once you're in the contact list, go into the options. Your sim contacts are probably filtered.

No, they are not. As you can see from the description I have dug into the settings but thi sseems to be a bug more than anything else. –  WoJ Mar 7 '13 at 14:05
