- Every-time I try to add a new contact, my Nexus S force me to put the contact under "Google contact from [my address]@gmail.com". Is there any way to change this? As I am concern on privacy. I do not want to let Google server to have every of my contacts.
- After adding new contact, I have to go to "Display options". Under [my address]@gmail.com, there is a no name group (The first group with name is System Group:My Contacts). Is there any way I can assign name to the no name group?
You should get the option to add them unsynced. Like this:
As far as I know, contacts are always filed under some account. Presumably the design intent is that contacts are usually stored somewhere else, in some reliable storage, in case you lose the data on your phone.
I'm not in a position to try this myself, but here's a possible way to get an “unsynced” account: Install the free “The Missing Sync for Android” app. This app is intended to sync contacts directly with your desktop, and the desktop half is a paid app, but the phone side can be installed for free, and if you never sync it the data will stay on your phone.
The Missing Sync app will generate an account on your phone called “MissingSync” (which will be labeled “unsynced” even though it actually is synced via the Missing Sync app), which you can add contacts under.
