    Ok, so after resisting for weeks, I finally upgraded my iPhone (3GS) to iOS6 from 5. I have my contacts separated into groups (Local Business, Work, Friends, Automotive, etc.). Before the "uprade" if I wanted a number for someone in, say, my "Friends" group, I simply tapped the friends group in my contact App and viola, I would get a list of my "Friends" group.

    NOW, when I tap "Friends" group, it only puts a check mark next to the group and I have to tap the "done" button, to open up the selected group (or groups). Then, if the next time I want to opn say, just my "work" group numbers, I tape "Work" and it puts a check mark, then I tap "done". However, unless I tap "Friends" again, the check mark will still be there and when I tap done BOTH groups will open. What a pain. Is there any way to make Contacts on my iPhone work the way it used to unger this new iOS?

    It acts this way with Calendar, too. Consistent, I guess.

    I agree 100% -- I do not like it.

    OP, I use groups a lot, too, and it was indeed an awful change. Mind boggling, in fact. It's been brought up before and there's no way get back to the previous functional setup. All we can do is send feedback to Apple and hope common sense prevails in a future update.

    Yep but it's not a good behavior there either.

    What would be the best avenue for doing that?

    Thank you! Here is the feedback I sent them - I would encourage everyone who reads this and who doesn't like the changes in how Contacts works (or the fact that you can no longer delete individual songs from iPhone if Match is turned on) to send a similar feedback using the above link. My Feedback:
