    Hi All,

    First of all I'm very new to android and I've recently got HTC Desire. I want to sync my phone contacts with the gmail account.
    I read several threads from this forum and tried to change from phone contacts to google contacts instead.
    However, nothing happen when I manually sync. The icon rotating indicated that sync was in process.
    Afterward, I checked on my gmail's contacts, nothing change. No contact has phone number.
    I even tried to create some dummy contacts but not work either.
    Can anyone suggest something?

    Thanks

    PS. FYI My HTC run android 2.2

    Some addition:
    I also noticed that the icon that rotated next to "sync contacts" in Accounts & Sync > Google doesn't disappear like "sync Gmail" or "sync calendar".
    Also the date underneath didn't change like others.

    I had this problem when i upgraded to 2.2,to fix it i had to go into the contacts app and delete the data in that app,
    to do that press menu > settings > applications > manage applications > under the running tab find contacts storage then press clear data,then you should be able to sync your contacts.

    p.s by clearing the data you do not delete the contacts only the pics and any links etc you may have made.
