How do you set Local as your Default Contacts?

I want to be able to set my default contacts location to be only set for LOCAL only but I am unable to find it. Reason why I have duplicate contacts. When I import from a backup the go to three places were I have no choice. Very frustrating that there is no setting to prevent it. I have a Q10.2.x

What three places do they go?

 

Local, SIM card and what else?

Re: How do you set Local as your Default Contacts?

Locations I have are:

1. Local

2. SIM Card

3. BB LINK: HAWAII (my home1 computer)

4. BB LINK: MOLINARD1  (my home2  computer)

 

When I use contact backup apps and import, they automaticaly import into three locations:

1. Local

3. BB LINK: HAWAII

4. BB LINK:  MOLINARD1 

 

So what happens, they also automatically LINK with the other two. So I have three entrys of the same contact linked together. I unlinked them all and delete all of the from BB LINK HAWAII and MOLINARD1. That way I have only one copy in LOCAL CONTACTS. But when I import I want to be to IMPORT ONLY into the LOCAL contacts. But I have no way to configure it for all of the settings I looked into. 

 

So how do I only have ONE LOCATION for my CONTACTS? I want only LOCAL CONTACTS adn I do not want them to automatically be linked with two other exact copies of the same contact.

 

Thanks in Advance for your help,
