Android 4.4 Phone Contacts (without Google account)

In Android Kitkat 4.4.4, the People app will only let you create contacts which are synchronized with a google account by default.

It doesn’t let you create a local “Phone contact”, unless you disable “Google Contacts Sync”.

This may be desired if you want to use Android without Google services.

You can then choose your preferred groupware solution (Kylook, openexchange, …) to synchronise your contacts, calendar, etc.

Here is how to do it

1. “Menu” Button

2. “Settings”

3. Tap on “Apps

4. Tap on “Google Contacts Sync

5. Disable the “Google Contacts Sync”

6. confirm with “OK

The “Google Contacts Sync” will now show up in a new “Disabled” tab in Settings -> Apps, where it can be re-enabled if needed.

Create a new contact, it will be marked “Phone only, unsynced contact”


Protect your Privacy

Almost every APP on your device CAN read the “Standard” Android Contact List.

Protect your privacy

For important contacts, those you want to protect from thefts, we recommend you not to sync these contacts with the Standard Device Address Book. Your contact list will be safer if you keep these only in your Kylook APP!
