    I use Google to store and display Contacts on my iphone. I use two accounts and have always done this because I have a personal account and a business account, the problem occurs when i need to add a contact to my business account which is NOT MY DEFAULT account and so everytime I do this process, all added contacts go to my default account which in this case, is my personal account.

    Is there a way to manage adding contacts a different way? I already tried unchecking my personal account on the Groups Screen and the contact still goes to default

    Im totally lost "(

    Pretty sure the default account has to be changed.

    I do the same thing and usually just end up fixing the situation when I get back to my Mac.

    Doesn't always work - default account.
    I have 3 accounts on my 6+: MS Exchange, GMail, iCloud. MS Exchange is the default.
    When adding a new contact from email it goes to MS. When adding a manual contact, it ends up in MS or iCloud. I end up using a sync app to fix my contacts. It's a pita and something that yes, you would think, Apple would have caught and implemented long ago. :rolleyes:
