I have got a Samsung Galaxy S6 running stock firmware lollipop. I have configured multiple accounts that include Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Whatsapp, Viber, Facebook, Samsung etc.
The problem I am facing when I search for a contact in Android's contact search it comes up with the same/similar contact from different services. I want some sort of solution to disable/hide all contacts from my all other accounts except gmail contacts.
What I have tried so far is to delete all the contacts from yahoo but those contacts are still there in my device. When I configured my yahoo mail I made sure I uncheck the option of syncing yahoo contacts to the device. But they somehow sneaked in.
When I configured Samsung account on my mobile I accidentally selected sync with mobile and now its a big mess.
I have selected to show only gmail contacts and its successfully showing just the Gmail contacts but the problem is with the Android Contact Search. When I try to search a particular contact it comes up with the same contact from different accounts.
Note: I don't want to reset the phone to solve this issue
I hope I've made my problem clear enough. If you need further information to resolve my problem I am quite happy to answer any further queries.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
