In iOS 4.x.x, I remember having a preference in:

Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Contacts

that would allow me to select a Default Group.

Now that I've upgraded to iOS 5, that preference is no longer visible.

Was it removed? Moved? Do I have to have a specific setup in order to have that preference available?

I need to select a "Default Group" in order to reproduce a bug reported by a beta tester, so it'd be handy to be able to set this preference.

  • Actually, the weird thing is that it was reported by someone on iOS 5. In their settings, they had the option to set a "Default Group" for their Contacts, but I don't. – djibouti33 Nov 23 '11 at 8:23

In iOS 5.1, you can define a "Default Account" for Contacts in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Scroll down until you see a Contacts heading; Default Account is at the bottom of that section. This setting will affect where new Contacts created on the iPhone are placed.

  • awesome, looks like it came back in 5.1! – djibouti33 Mar 21 '12 at 18:58
