    I've been an iOS user since the very first iPhone. I only point this out to emphasize the dumbness in me that I haven't figured this out yet...

    I recently noticed that a lot of my contacts, personal or work-related, are saved under my work's Exchange account. If I go into an individual contact there's no way that I can see to tell which account this contact is saved under.

    How do I specify what account a new contact is saved under? I'd prefer, obviously, for non-work contacts to be saved to my iCloud account. I always just hit the + in contacts to add someone new, there's no option on where it's saved. I'm concerned that once my company wises up to me I will get fired and lose many of my contacts.

    What are the best practices here?

    Settings > Contacts > Default Account should determine where new contacts go

    I don't know if there is a way to move a contact from one account to another without a third party app.
