    That's weird. When I add a new contact on the phone it's saved automatically in Gmail, local and sim (for my part, I'd like it just being saved in Gmail but I can't figure out how) .

    i found solutions for that

    Just go in contacts pull down menu from top and go in settings

    in settings turn off all other for example sim contacts and Facebook etc. just keep your gmail contacts on.

    and try to save new contact on your blackberry 10 after 30 minutes check it on other devices where you using your gmail contacts it should be saved on gmail

    That's just for display purposes. The default settings on my Z10 are exactly that.
    Still, when you save a new contact, open the contacts card and press on "Links" at the bottom. Still shows that it saves it on the SIM card as well.
    Must be a way to change the default setting.....

    Hello

    The problem is that every time a new contact is added from the device it is saved in every email account plus as a local contact. Then all the saved contacts are linked so at first glance there's one contact added. This is problematic for situations where the contact should be in only one email account, for example for people having an account for business and other for personal things.
    My wife had this situation and the only workaround I could give her is to create 'shell' or 'empty' contacts entries so every time she needs to add a contact using the device she just edits the empty shell contact with real information. The shell contact is created directly in the email page (outlook.com, yahoo.com, gmail.com), not in the device. The shell contact will have a name like 'new yahoo 1' (or 'zznew yahoo 1' if you want to keep it all the way down in the contacts list). When the contact is edited in the device it doesn't create additional linked contacts in the other accounts. When the shell contacts run out (you can create several shell contacts) then you create a new bunch again.
    This workaround is helpful if just need adding few contacts on the device every day.

    Hope it works for you

    New contacts will only save into every email account because you make active contacts for each of them. Only my gmail us active, so new contacts saves into it pays local contacts.

    I only want a setting that will automatically prevent saving into the local contacts book n Z10
