Android - Only display contacts with a phone number



You will notice that the phonebook of your Android smartphone regroups contacts from different services (Google account...)
You can configure Android to only display the contacts having a phone number:
  • Open the Contacts app.
  • Tap on the Menu key > Settings.
  • Check "Only contacts with phones".


Note that: You can also create a custom contact list out of the different services your phone is connected to (Viber, WhatsApp, SIM contacts).
  • Open the Contacts app.
  • Tap on the Menu key > Contact to display.
  • Tap on "Customised list"
  • From there simply select the services of your choice.
