Hello, lumia 920 newbie here so appoligies in advance.
I got my lumia 920 and im trying to sort it out.
i signed in using my hotmail address (one that ive had for nigh on 20 years) and when it popped up with people, it showed me everyone who i had ever saved the email of in my entire history. bit embarrasing but a hassle to go and delete and sort out.
i then stupidly used the transfer my stuff app from my iphone 4 to my lumia.
went smoothly all was good, until i went to find a number and saw that all my numbers were mixed in with my email contacts.
now i cant turn off my email contacts or i see nothing, but i cant stand looking and searching through all of my contacts to find a person.
is there a way i can seperate the two, so my emails contacts stay in one place and my phone contacts in another?
i just want to be able to browse my phone book, not my email address book.
if it helps i dont use facebook, and the whole social networking thing, so trying to sync email address/ phone numbers/ profiles is a waste of time.
any and all help would be appreciated as i dont want to delete my whole email contact list just so i can view my phone book :(

WP is designed for your contacts to all be your email contacts. This is so that no matter what you never lose the contacts and you can manage them online. It's actually a pretty nice feature. Your only real option that I can think of would be to add another account type that has contacts and put the people you want to see in that service and filter like Phonohead said. Not a great solution but I actually like the everything must be stored online instead of on the phone mentality.

I think you're left with a solution/workaround as suggested by phirefly. Export all your contacts from your current account, go online and import those you want into your new "contacts"-email.
Then sync that email add, with only contacts, to your phone.
