    My apologies of this has already been mentioned, but I cannot seem to find an option within ICS that mirrors gingerbreads "show only contacts with phone numbers" option.

    Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Dumb question, I know.

    Go to contacts. Then click the menu button the contacts to display then all contacts will be up top.

    That's my problem, I don't want all contacts showing, only those with phones numbers attached to them.

    The only thing I've found is that if you access contacts from the phone dialer you get contacts that only have a phone number. If you access contacts through the People app you get all of them. I've not found an option to change that.

    There are the groups, but it seems you would have to manually populate a group of contacts with only phone numbers. That doesn't seem right.

    I have my "Phone Contacts" in "My Contacts" within Gmail on the PC. All of my other contacts without phone numbers get auto placed into "Other Contacts." Is this info any help?

    It means that my phone only displays contacts with phone numbers...it has been this way through Froyo, Gingerbread, and ICS. I've never had to explicitly tell it to only display contacts with numbers.

    Yeah these help, I just wonder why they excluded this option in ICS.
