Is it possible to keep phone contacts separate from mail contacts?

    So I added my yahoo information to the phone and my contacts were imported, which is good, since I'll need them when sending e-mails.

    However, when I try to make a call, they are in there as well.

    Is it possible to keep phone contacts separate so that when I'm making a call, I don't have to look at all those e-mail contacts? (That is, without eliminating e-mail contacts from the phone entirely.)

    You could create a group for email only and another one for phone only, then add the relevant contacts into those groups.

    No App

    I can't believe there's no app that does this. Examining each card and moving them to groups (especially using a phone) is pretty tedious. Any more ideas? Thanks!

    In the OP's case it's possible to select either the Phone contacts or the Yahoo contacts without having to assign them to groups.

    Not sure about your case as you haven't provided details. Do you not have a computer to edit/manage contacts? How do need them separated?

    There's probably little demand for such an app as people tend to know who they're trying to contact and just directly select the contact.
