Unfortunately there is no simple, fast solution to this, Facebook has actively made this difficult and even though there were solutions for older versions of Android, they all related to the Facebook API, not Android which was just doing documented calls that are not supported any longer. However, if your father uses Google+ you CAN sync Google+ and Google ...

I just figured this out accidentally. Go to contacts to display option Select customise option (spanner icon) Under your google account, select only my contacts and uncheck other options. Repeat this for other accounts that show duplicates.

First things first. There's something that I'm confused about. You said that the keyboard crashed, but did you try turning the phone off and restarting it? That should reinstate the keyboard and you should be able to unlock upon restart. You can also remove the battery from the phone to "kill it" and power it up again, in case it is needed to accomplish the ...

I finally was able to get rid of the unwanted contacts. What I had to do was have my friend add their e-mail back onto my phone. I then turned off the Sync for this phone. After that I deleted all the unwanted numbers and contacts. Once that was done I removed the e-mail account. I then forced a Sync and then restarted my phone.

TL;DR If you sign in to the device after the reset with the Google account which had been used for the backup (the primary Google account usually), the contacts which had been backed up will get restored. Longer version with source: I'll keep this short and to the point, as most of it has already been discussed here in @RyanConrad's answer, a relevant ...

I have solved my problem with Social Contact Photo Sync.

I found a simple solution... Remove the google a/c first... Then set up the google a/c again... Go to contacts' setting & set contacts display as your google a/c... this time the sync will be as per the google a/c and all invisible contacts not found during search will be visible...!

One possible option, if you can be sure which 150 contacts are being copied to the SIM in the old phone, is to transfer 150 contacts, copy them to the smart phone, and delete them from the old phone. Then, next cycle, you'll get the next 150, and in twenty minutes or so you'll be done. The trick is being sure you're deleting the same contacts that were ...

I've found an app called FullContact that pretty much solved my problem. It can be connected to a Google account (not necessarily the one used for the Android phone). Its address book is completely separated from the main phone contacts app (not like, I.E. Contacts+). So now I have my personal contacts (linked to my main Google account) in the default ...

solved! I had the problem for a while, I now tried to add the contact to another google account (I have 2) - this time to the main account the phone is registered on. The contacts have yet to disappear! hope this will continue working (I know this isn't the best solution, cause what if you don't have 2 accounts?!)

Removing the Google account should have invariably deleted the contacts linked to that account, from your phone. If not, go to Contacts, choose "Contacts to display" and select the Google account of your friend. This should bring up only those 'unwanted' contacts. Select all and delete. In case if the account does not show up in "Contacts to display" then ...

I ran into the same problem recently on my Moto G running Android 5.1. The solution is rather simple but took some time to figure out. Send a text to the number from WhatsApp if you do not have a chat opened currently with that number. Open contact>Edit>Separate. Now that the contact's info is separated, go to the one containing the phone number (the one ...

This might work. It's an app called DejaOffice. It allows you to separate your contacts, calendars, etc into different sections. I've used it before and it's a great app. Or an alternative is to create a different Google account for each "Profile."

On some devices, the "local phonebook" simply doesn't exist. But you can add it, e.g. using an app like MyLocalAccount. Here's this app's description from Google Play: This app does represent a local contact account. This is helpfully for devices without local contact account (f.e. Nexus series) if you don't want to sync your contacts with Google ...

Yes you can have multiple address books. You could just use google account for this purpose. You can put different people in different groups and do a custom view in settings to show the items you like.
