Purged my Google Contacts. It was already in ship shape with connected profiles (synced with not only Google+ but Facebook as well) and no duplicate contacts. Today I went a step further and deleted all contacts without a phone number. Now my Gmail Contacts is 333 large, with 49 contacts listed under ‘My Contacts’.
I haven’t stored any contact on my new phone, letting Android sync the Google Contacts. My phonebook (HTC People app) definitely feels lighter now! 🙂
