    I use a jabber account to access my yahoo friends within iChat, http://mac.appstorm.net/how-to/internet-howto/using-multiple-im-protocols-with-ichat/

    But, I realize whenever I "label" my contacts (like writing they're real names instead of their yahoo IDs, entries are added to my address book, which of course poses a problem, because my addressbook entries sync with my iPhone.

    I wonder though, how can I prevent iChat saving contact info in Address Book? and is it even possible?
