I have more then 2k contacts on other contacts, but i only want to sync the "my contacts".

Any hints?


You cannot select which contacts to sync, but you can limit which groups are visible in the Contacts/Dialer apps:

  1. In the Contacts app go to Menu -> Display options.
  2. Under the "Choose contacts to display" section, tap on the arrow next to your Gmail account to expand it.
  3. Uncheck all groups except "System Group: My Contacts" and tap the "Done" button.

Now only the selected contacts should be displayed.

Found the official Motorola video on Youtube talking about their Contacts app. At the 1:00 mark they start talking about managing groups. It sounds like you should be able to create a new group and assign your contacts there, and then select to display only that particular group. Give that a shot.

  • Didn't work, in my contacts app, after menu, i only have: Add Contact, Search, Display Groups, My Info, Manage accounts, more (Settings, share name cards, import/export) In any of these options, i found the choose contacts do display options. Jun 1 '11 at 17:45
  • I was listing the options of stock Android 2.3 Contacts app. Sounds like your Atrix is running a Motorola's own Contacts app (BLUR?) Have you tried looking in the "Display Groups" option?

    youtube.com/… this is the official Motorola video. Looks like you need to create a Display Group, assign some contacts to it, and then you should be able to display only that group.
