Consolidating Contact Lists

I noticed after definig different E-Mail and IM accounts that I've different contact lists in my phone. For example, Gmail contact List, Hotmail Contact List, Yahoo contacts ...

The issue is if there is a way to have single list that is to be synchronized with all other lists coz finally I'd like to have a single contact entry for each person that has all of the related accounts in all IMs, Social Networks, and E-Mails. Is it possible? how?

Re: Consolidating Contact Lists

Hello Sdemian,

 

This option is currently not availavle, the different accounts cannot be synchronized with one contact list.

 

Thanks.

Re: Consolidating Contact Lists

Thanks Hatchback for the response. One more question. Only one of all contact lists is considered the main contact list. And some applications when trying to link with a contact, uses this list by default. Is there a way to set other contact list to be the main or default list?

Re: Consolidating Contact Lists

Change the default contact list
On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
Click Device > Advanced System Settings > Default Services.
Change the Contact List (SYNC) field.
Press the key > Save.
