How do I get my contacts in gmail back onto the Desire ?
So Ive been messing with my contacts and exported them to gmail where I edited them.
I now want those contacts back on my phone as google contacts but don't know how to do it.
In the people setting I currently have all my contacts saved as 'phone' but there are some errors. The ones ive edited on gmail have all the errors fixed.
I have no contacts as 'google' in the people setting.
Ive tried syncing with google (with contacts selected) but nothing came through. Could this be because I still had the contacts open in gmail on my laptop ?
I also tried selecting export from gmail which created a CSV (or similar !) file, however this file was only a few bytes in size and when I saved it on the SD card and tried to import in people there was nothing on it ?
So all I want to do is get the correct contacts from gmail onto the people app on the Desire under 'google' contacts.
I feel its something simple that im not doing right
When I rooted my desire i accidentally backed up my contacts and restored them as duplicates. They eventually synced to gmail where I merged them. But it didnt sync back to the phone. I had to run the set up wizard where you enter your gmail addy etc and that seemed to do the trick. You could try that
Ive read on here that the blurry contact photos issue is due to the fact that when you sync with gmail contacts, gmail re-sizes the photos to a smaller resolution. This same resolution photo is then defaulted as your contact photo on the phone, leading to a blurry image.
I think there is a work around but i really can't be arsed. I only have a gmail account to access the market and push email from my sky account so im not really bothered if my contacts aren't on gmail.
