I have an LG L5 (E610), running Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich MR1).

Recently, I moved all my contacts that were stored as Phone or SIM contacts to Google contacts in order to get them synced.

Now, I have only Google contacts.

But, when I create a new contact, the default store seems to be the Phone store, and I find no option where I can set Google as the default store.

Googling around a bit brought up one solution that sounded reasonable: display only the Google contacts, in the address book, then Google will be the default for a new contact. But, even this doesn't work; if I only display Google contacts, my phone still selects the Phone storage as default and I cannot see my newly created contact.

Any suggestions as to how I can set the default contact store? Or is this impossible?
