Simple but important. I do not want certain people on my contact list to see others on that same list (It's complicated). I have no idea what a contact is seeing on their end when they are in voice/cam chat with me. Still new to this, but need to know before adding contacts to my list...Help a brother out...

No - your contact list is UNIQUE TO YOU.

 

Nobody else can see your list (unless you send them a copy).  If you have two friends on your contact list that don't like each other - say Bob and John - both can be in your Contact List, and Bob will have you in his Contact List.  John will also have you in his list, but he won't be able to see Bob, and won't even know that Bob is is in your list!

 

Hope that makes it clear!

I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly.  moreover, persons who are in your contact list will not be able to see the usernames or details of the other users who are also in your contact list.

Primemover: Appreciate your taking the time to respondy):. If you are saying that persons in my contact list can NOT see others in my contact list, then you have answered the querstion. I no not want my contacts to "see" each other if at all possible, and that is the issue. Please confirm or correct as soon as you can spare a moment of your valuable time, so I am clear on this.  Regards "B"...
