I have bought an Android phone. My first And phone ever. It's Nexus 4. I Had SonyEricsson K800i before and i was satisfied with it. I got new phone only because my company gave me money for it (it was a reward) and i tougth it would be fun to have something "just like K800 with capabilites to offer better 3D games".
Now, i'm kind of disappointed because, contrary to my old phone, it turns out that i must have some sort of online account in order to use my phone properly. What do i mean? Well, first of all i have all my contacts on my SIM card and i don't want to change that, but in order to show those contacts on my phone, i have to "sync" them / add them (or whatever) with some online service like FB or gmail.
Tell me, if i just want to use my phone only for games, casual browsing the web (i don't even have wireless at my home), sms and calls - how do i avoid syncing ANYTHING with ANYTHING online?
I don't have Twitter, Picasa nor Instagram, i'm barely using FB (once in 10 days i check for new messages when i'm on my home PC), i have a "fake" gmail account (opened just so i can use "Google Play" from my office and register at sites i need for one time visit only. For true emails i'm using only my mailbox that i got from my ISP 15 years ago), i don't want to merge and "bundle" any of my contacts from the phone with any social network but with Android i have a problem "isolating" my phone from any online activities.
Please, tell me, how to make my Nexus 4 (with Android 4.3) use ONLY my SIM contacts, save new contacts to the SIM card only and not asking me to tie any contact with any online service? :) Also, i don't want even to see "gmail" contacts (if any) in my contacts list because contact with only mail address is useless to me (i'm never sending an email from my phone).
