[Q&A] Contacts app. Missing option to hide contacts without a number

2021-06-18 00:00:34

Using Note 10 Pro.

The Contacts app lacks ability to hide contacts without a number. Every phone I've ever owned had this option. I now have many contacts which do not have a number. These contacts are needed in Contacts because they have email addresses rather than a number.

Please update MIUI to include this.

So let me get this, you have contacts without a phone number, but with an email, and you want to retain them, but not show when looking through the dialler?

Yes exactly. For example, I have a contact in Phone app called Bob. Since it didn't have a phone number, I deleted it. Now I have lost Bob's email address. Also when going to Gmail, Bob's email address no longer exists in my contact list. You can find this feature in many phones such as my previous phone LG G6, called Hide contacts with no number.

TBH, I haven't got a clue as I never use my phone to call people, but I'll try and find out

To fix this issue, there should be an option to hide contacts that don't have a number, like most phone have.

The option does not seem to be available in the Google Contacts app. I notice some other manufacturers do have their own contact apps where it is available.

Yes it's not available. Xiaomi should include it in their People app.

Maybe you have a different version of the app because I don't have this option in Contacts app

Have you tried looking for a different contact app on Google Play Store and installing it on your phone?
