    How to limit the contacts displayed in the contact book in the Android phone?

    I have added multiple Google accounts to the Android phone. The contacts from these accountsare automatically be synced and displayed in the contact book. How can I choose which account’s contacts will be displayed on the contact book?

    Locate and open the Contacts application on your Android phone. Nowclick on the Menu key and then select the Contacts to displayoption from the list. Now choose the account for displaying in the contact book. If you wish to show contacts from these accounts at the same time you need to choose Customize option. Once it is chosen, nowclick the small arrow at the start of the email line to expand to the choices and choose the options that you want. Now uncheck these options if you wish to hide contacts from other emails. Then tap OK to save the setting.
