Since upgrading to 4.4.2 I have been having this extremely annoying issue. Every time I go to save a contact it is set to save to my phone by default rather than my Gmail account. I have searched all over and found others who have had this issue but there appears to be no fix. You are able to manually change the contact location when creating a new contact but this can be annoying and if you forget to do it initially I have to recreate the entire contact. Any help in fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
