I have a number of mail accounts on my Samsung Tablet. Contacts stored online are synced with the local tablet contacts and visible in the stock Android Contact app.

As different accounts are connected with different task/activities, I would like to filter contacts by account.

Is there a way in the stock contact app to display only contacts for a given account? If not, is it possible to achieve this with a different app?

My Android version is 3.2.

  • Which Samsung tablet? Which version of the OS? The People app for each might be different. – ale Jul 19 '13 at 12:18

Unless munged by Samsung, while in the People app you should be able to go to menuContacts to display and then choose the account for which you want to see contacts. There's even a "Customize" option which allows one to, for instance, only display contacts from certain of an account's contact groups.

  • probably not in Android3.2 – antonio Jul 23 '13 at 23:53
  • Yeah, sorry. Can't help you there. I never had a device with 3.x. – ale Jul 23 '13 at 23:54
