    Welcome to the forum.. I only use Google for my contacts.. I do see option for merge with Google.. I'm not sure about Samsung as I don't have that option.. Maybe someone can chime in

    In "settings" under accounts, you will see the Samsung account click on it. At the top you will see your account (Which is more than likely an email address) click on it, and it will take you to tab where you can check or uncheck what you would like to sync. Such as Sync Calendar, Sync Contacts, Sync Internet and last but not least, Sync S Note... So obviously you are going to want to uncheck Contacts, which will in turn disable this feature... Hope this helps...

    PS: Or at the bottom right corner of the phone, you will see a tab that reads, "REMOVE ACCOUNT" you could potentially do this if you wish...

    Hi LITMBED,

    Thank u for the response. I tried what you said, but it takes away all the contacts that i have from Samsung account , which mean all my earlier phone contacts are gone. I have a back up of it so no worries.

    But my worry is all these contacts are again shown as Samsung account.

    To tell you in detail.. " In contacts options > I selected the option " MERGE Contacts with Samsung Account " that is how i ended up with this problem. Can you suggest how to unmerge and get the contacts back as Phone contacts???

    Thanks

    One way you could do it is to open your contacts app, hit the settings soft key, and click "contacts to display" , then click the one fot your google account and it should only show those that were with your google account. It doesn't really get rid of them but it does hide them so they don't bother you

    Try going to your contacts > settings and then export to your SD Card from your Samsung Account, and you should be able to import.

    Hope this helps.
