Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus> transferred contacts from old Nokia N6233?

Some notes did not transfer completely, and can not find a Notes option in the pull-down. When transfer directly by any communication (e.g. Bluetooth), all default fields are unavailable. After phone reset (few times) to the factory, all default fields are restored. Only import from SD keep unused fields. But in both cases field Notes does not exist, in Add another field. All action was without SIM card. (I like clean phone preparation). How can I find it? Best regards

Managing the contacts folder on a Samsung Galaxy S 4G?

This is my first smartphone and I noticed that most of the apps appear to be web based. I would like to store my contact list on my phone (SIM card actually) instead of online. Is the Contacts folder capable of managing multiple phone numbers or only just one?

I am looking for an easy way to change the storage option on my Samsung Galaxy S4 from device to Google?

Presently when I add a new contact I must change the storage option to Google as it defaults to the device. It never remembers this choice when the next contact is added. If a contact is already stored on the device and I go to edit that contact I am unable to change the storage location to Google. It remains device.

"Custom" category disappeared from CONTACTS in Android?

Until yesterday I used a feature in "contacts" (Samsung S4, Android) called "custom". It is no longer shows up. Instead, there are a bunch of useless (for me) new categories. How do I restore the very useful "custom" category?. I think it was caused by: New version?
