    "Display only contacts with mobile numbers" -- Gone from ICS?

    I remember the dialer used to have a "phonebook" tab at the top that showed all of your contacts, and this allowed you to go to the settings and display contacts that only have mobile numbers... I can't find this anymore in ICS .211. It appears that the phonebook has been removed and now you can only use the "People" app.

    that being said, now I have a list full of email addresses and all type of unnecessary contacts. Is there any way to filter by just people with mobile numbers anymore?

    I've been searching and there doesn't appear to be an option to do this anymore. I ended up just going in and manually removing all the contacts without phone numbers.

    My contacts will forever be screwed thanks to this. I have way too many contacts and way too much trash to be manually doing anything. Would at least be helpful if there was a batch option.

    This is one of a few changes I've been questioning.

    If most of your trash contacts are in Google you can go to Google.com/contacts and do a batch removal there

    Yeah its most of the weirdest things of all. I actually manage my contacts most of the time from Google.com/contacts, but I have google+, Facebook, linkedin contacts in there with no numbers too (some of them)

    You can choose not to show those at all then transfer the ones you do care about to Google

    Download the free EX Dialer from the Play store. It is a very good replacement dialer and still allows you to show or hide contacts without numbers. I still use it over the ICS dialer and I believe the EX Dialer ICS theme is also free.

    Note: EX Dialer includes Contacts EX which is integrated with EX Dialer and is also a stand-alone contacts replacement.
