Default [Q] Default contact saving location?

Hey.
I bought a new g2.
Im trying to save new contact and Ive seen that the default location is the phone.
Even when set to display only gmail contacts it stays the same location to phone.

I dont have root yet..

There is a solution?

Thanks!

when you try to add contacts, set the phone location for saving it, should be 3 options, phone, simcard, and Google's account

Manually set to save in Google is the only way I know so far.
Default is convenient, yes, but I guess it's the way to go now.

I have the T-Mobile D801. The 1st time I hit the (+) button to create a contact a menu came up asking me what I want the default storage to be. I haven't found a way to change this or get the menu to come up again.

I would be very happy if LG fixes this error in the next firmware version.

Default SOLVED

If you have the LG G2 on Verizon you can go into the Verizon cloud app and disable it from syncing anything at all.. This will force the phone to save it as Google. I looked at this forum because I couldn't figure it out. I then tried this and it worked! You're welcome!
