Click on the contact you'd like to test and hold down the Option key. The groups that it's a member of will highlight. The highlight is very subtle.

Also beware of the "mouse keys" shortcut of hitting Option five times. Go to System Preferences > Universal Access > Mouse & Trackpad tab >uncheck the "Press the option key five times to turn Mouse keys on and off"

This was what i had in my notes but it does not work for me. I remember it worked a while ago but I am not sure if that was before I installed Lion. Do you know if it works the same way with Lion? I spoke to Apple Care and they said that there is no way to do this. I also checked to make sure the "mouse keys"...hitting Option five times....was unchecked and it is. Any other thoughts?

It still works for me in Lion. Click on the contact on the right so it's highlighted. Then press Option and the groupname on the left will change from black font to a blue font. It's a very subtle change so look carefully. Also make sure to pick a contact that's a member of a group.

Great, it works!. However, I have one additional doubt/issue. I use to have ALL my contacts assigned to a group (1760 contacts, 9 groups). Since I am adding new contacts "on the go" using my iPhone, there is no way to assign the new comers to a group using the iPhone, so I have to wait till I get my iMac at the of the day or the week. The question is easy: how do I know which contacts are not assiged? (other than going through the entire list pressing the Option key, of course)
