    How do I sync my phone with only "My Contacts" on my gmail account rather than "All Contacts"? Is this possible?

    Hmm... Do you have more than one group setup using www.google.com/contacts ? It seems like a major feature to be missing, but stranger things have happened.

    Well I have "my contacts" and "all contacts". I only want "my contacts" to be synced. When I go into people - groups on my phone it says My Contacts (0).

    When I press menu I only get the option to add or delete a group.

    Do you have the Google contact sync turned on? (You can check by going to Settings > Data Synchronization > Google)

    If so, I'm not sure I know enough to help you out. My phone seems to be behaving totally different (i.e., when I go to people > groups, I don't even have a group listed)

    Do you by chance have the Android SDK installed so you can take screen shots?

    On your phone, open the People app. Tap the 3rd icon (Groups), then hit the menu button. Hit Sync Groups and then 'check' the contacts you want sync'd.

    I have tried that....my only option when I hit menu is to add a group. I just looked at my husband's phone and he has it...i'm not sure what the problem is.

    Please post if you find out. I'm in the same boat. Thought that I wasn't following instructions. :confused:

    Once you reset the phone, what was required for you to do. Will I be required to re-setup my google email account on my phone?

    You're awesome! :D Now I can even choose "Google" or "Phone" when adding a contact instead of "Phone" as my only choice.
