    Ive been having major issues with call quality and dropped calls. I rooted to fresh 1.1 just to see if that would fix It. Well now when I make a call it says account cannot be validated. Called sprint and they tried everything and still no dice. :( so they had to send me a replacement. Sucks but gave me a 50 dollar credit

    So my question is how do I unroot my phone now? lol

    Hope my new phone Is better!

    Anyone have this Issue?

    its all in how you saved them to your phone or gmail account....you can check what type they are when you open the people app and it will either say phone or google on the right side of the screen for each contact ...if they are google then they are able to be backed up with gmail when you sync it

    I don't want to thread jack, but didn't want to create another thread :p Unfortunately my contacts say "Phone" by them, is there a way to convert them to google? I want to be able to back up my contacts.

    I'm not sure if I'm right but i think they might be google contacts if you actually input the persons email and it's a google email. My wife's says google and I didn't do anything special other than add her email.

    You can go in and edit each contact. There is a pulldown menu there to specify if you want to save it as a Google or phone contact.

    I don't know how to change them all into Google contacts though.

    There is a free app that converts all your contacts to Google contacts in the market, it is called ContactSync and is made by happydroid. I used it to change 180 contacts from a phone contact to a Google contact. I was then able to sync all my contacts with my Gmail account.

    What's the point of having phone and Google contacts? Why not just have contacts?

    Not sure if I understand your question. But google contacts are synced to your google account, so if you get a new phone or whatnot they'll resync to your phone and you won't have to add everything all over again.

    I'm just wondering why they find a need for two types of contacts why not just call them Contacts and have them sync to Google? If the only reason for Google contacts is to sync. Why would you not want your contacts to sync? Just seems stupid to have to types of contacts. At least that's my opinion.

    I totally agree with you, I have no idea why they would have 2 different types.

    All of mine are Google, because I came from a Blackberry and used GoogleSync to back-up my contacts before switching. So when I signed into Google the first time with my Hero they were all there. I'm pretty sure my default is to save as Google, because I have added a few and never chose how to save it and mine are all still Google.
