omg ****in thank u. ive had this phone since release and was soooo anoyed that i wasnt able to view my contacts in PHONE group because it was stuck in google group. ****ing amazing thanks.
Like many out there, I could not get the Groups I created in google gmail Contacts to synch to my android phone. The individual contacts would synch, just no Group.
Turns out the Group and Group name were on the phone, just not 'visible'.
In the Contacts screen click MENU > Display Options.
Then select the account where you created the Group.
Then you will see every Group as it appears in your Gmail account.
Except for 'My Contacts', all of my Group names were unchecked and not displayed.
Click the Group name.
Go back to Contacts and click the Group icon... and now your Group is displayed.
From here you can email, text, or create an event for the group.
Hope this helps!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!
Someone should make the information below a sticky and put in somewhere it can be found easy. I have been 2 hours searching, Verizon, Goggle and this forum to find this answer. I had groups on my old droid 3 but they did not transfer to the new droid 4 and it has been a PITA.
2. Unable to associate contacts to contact groups
This took me a while and I finally figured it out - very annoying that there's no proper documentation as to how to do this. This is what you need to do:
a) create New Contact Group (Contacts -> Menu -> Display Groups -> Create new group)
Here comes the weird part - you can NOT directly create contacts in the group. Although it gives you the add contact option under menu, it will add the contact under all contacts. What you need to do is edit the contact group and pick which contacts you want in the group.
b) select your contact group (will show no contacts initially)
c) Menu -> Edit Group
d) Click Add. Now it lists all your contacts and you can check the ones you want under your contact group. Select the ones you want and click Done.
e) Click Save.
