I have a Nexus 6 with Lollipop 5.0. I am wondering how many contacts I have on my phone. Of course I could go through and count each one but is there a way to put the contact count at the bottom sort of like the iPhone contact count. How

How can I enable this?



In the Contacts app, press the Menu button and select Memory status.
Then you get a screen displaying you the total number of contacts used for every single account/storage.
This only works for custom ROMs, though (don't know why).

enter image description here

  • When I press the menu button, I don't see a Memory status. I see setting. Under settings there is only sorting.

  • Hmm, that's strange. I see Displayed contacts, Import/Export, Accounts, Settings, Delete and Memory status. Also I am on Lollipop, too. So that's strange.

  • Wait. I don't have developer mode on. Do you?

    I am using a CM fork (Resurrection Remix) with Android 5.0.2.

    FYI, this feature is not available on stock Android. Please include a note mentioning the custom ROM on the answer.

Don't do it on the phone at all. Log into your gmail account on the desktop, switch to the contacts tab, and the number is displayed after "My Contacts"


I wrote an app that counts your contacts. It is called Contact Counter and eagerly waiting for users ;o)

    You might consider adding a link to the app on the Play Store (or Github or wherever it's available from).

Just scroll down to the bottom of the Contact list -- you'll find the total # of contacts

  • Can you add more details please. Maybe it is specific to your phone /OS. I haven't seen that anywhere
