I have recently reinstalled Android on B63M due to some problems with the SD Card. I decided to keep all my contacts only in Gmail, as a centralized solution to avoid problems in the future. I do not want other SIM or phone contacts to show in the contacts list anymore.
However, if I try to uncheck both the SIM and phone contacts and I do check all possible Google contacts groups
and the option for showing only contacts with a phone number1, no contact is shown at all. If I also show the phone contacts, then the Google contacts are shown (and thus I have some duplicates), but removing the phone contacts removes the Google contacts too.
Note that the contacts are perfectly synched and all under the My contacts group. It's not a synchronisation problem. I'm asking why I must select the show phone contacts in order to see any contact at all (from whichever source you like. Even SIM. I cannot show only the SIM contacts without the show phone contacts enabled.)
To make things clearer, here are some screenshots of the situation:
Here I have set only the phone contacts (Contatti del telefono in Italian), without Google contacts:
Here I have added the Google contacts in the options and they are shown (see red rectangles. Note the number of contacts at the top going from 116 to 156):
Now, I'd expect that removing the phone contacts I should see only the Google contacts (in this case those that above have red rectangles and the other not shown), but this is what I get:
On the right, it just says that there are no contacts to show and that I can add new contacts or import/export from other sources.
What should I do such that this last set of options does show the Google contacts?
1 Having or not this option active doesn't change anything. Even if it is not active no contact is shown.
