Show only phonenumber contacts android 7

In Android 6 it was possible to only show those contacts for which a phonenumber was known. I can't seem to find this option in Android 7 Nougat. Does anyone know how to do this?

@Floor

 

it seems that you might need a third party app for that. Don't forget to send your feedback to Sony >>> Local support

Re: Show only phonenumber contacts android 7

Hi @Floor, welcome to our forum!

Are you referring to the setting that you could find in the contacts application Android 6.0 which was called Contacts with phone numbers (Only show contacts that have phone numbers) and was found under "Filter"?

If you are, @uliwooly is correct, you will need to use a third party contacts application that has this feature.

I have requested some more information if this setting will be reintroduced again and I will update you as soon as I have received this information.

Re: Show only phonenumber contacts android 7

Hi again!

I have received some more information regarding this feature in the Contacts application.

 

You may experience that the option to filter contacts without a saved number is missing in Android™ 7.0. However, this is intentional, and not a bug. There is currently no plan to re-implement this option, though no final decision has been made.

So you will have to use a third party application that has this feature. You can also use the workaround below.

  1. From your Home screen, tap the Application screen icon.
  2. Find and tap Phone.
  3. Enter a phone number, name or other information in the Search contacts field. The contacts that don't have saved numbers will not show up.

Let me know if that helps! Slightly smiling Face
