Default Just got this amazing device and have a few questions

Hello guys!

I am a big android fan and my old phone was the LG nexus 4.
I got now the samsung galaxy s3 from my work place so I won't be using
the nexus anymore.

Because it's a phone from work I'll need to configure two emails:
work email and my gmail.

In the nexus I had only one email address (gmail) and everything was synchronized to there ...
contacts, google play and much more.

I want in the new galaxy s3 devise to have the gmail account as primary but to configure also the work email:
to have contacts from gmail and the work contacts all together under my phone contacts
and to have seperation .. if I add a contact I want it to be synced only to my gmail contacts for instance.

so on the one hand, I want to have both mails and functionality on the same phone
but on the other hand a way that I can seperate between the two.

Thanks alot you guys!

It should have another E-Mail app installed.

You can use this or download another E-Mail app if you don't like the stock app.
Then you should be able to configure your work mail in this app, shouldn't be very hard.

I don't think you can also synchronize your work contacts. Maybe if you use Exchange, I'm not sure.
But you could just add your work contacts to your Gmail contacts and add them to a Work contact group.

thanks for the quick response,
any mail app recommended?

Also,
How do I add my work contacts to my gmail contacts without doing so one by one?
(is there some kind of export?)

thanks!

I'm on a custom ROM and using the stock Android mail app, but K-9 Mail is very good mail app.

I think, you should be able to import your work contacts.
However, I don't exactly know how you would do that. But I'm sure, you'll find an answer with Google.
