    If you make any account other than your google account the default account in your contact preferences, contacts shouldn't sync with google when you add or update a contact. Since you already have your Google account loaded with your contacts, you may need to move the contacts from the Google account to your outlook account or even a 2nd google account, but that should work. Good luck!

    I didn't know you could sync contacts with Yahoo, but yes, changing it to anything but the current account you are syncing to will cause NEW contacts to go to that account. You will still need to move those contacts you don't want in the Google account to the other account.

    thank you for the info....so let me understand.... because my gmail is my default email and my wife has my gmail as one of her accounts it sends it any contacts that i add to my pre to my gmail and right to her phone right? and by changing my default it will not do this anymore.... but what i dont get is i have her gmail under one of my accounts and im not getting her contacts
