    When I bought my G1 the guy in the shop used his own gmail account to demonstrate and forgot to reset the phone. I got home transfered all my contacts into the G1 from my old mobile which then died. I only have my contacts on the G1 now and no other back up copy. My problem is that the shopguy's gmail is still the default account and I need to do a factory reset. I am unable to synch my contacts with my own gmail account. I am unable to download apps from the market as I dont know the shopguy's password. I am therefore unable to back up my contacts before I reset the phone.

    I have been looking for ways to back up my contacts to my PC so that I can reset the phone and then export them back and synch them with gmail via the G1. It seems impossible to do using the USB cable? It is also not possible to save the contacts to SIM or the memory card?

    I have looked into using sites like zyb or vodafone 360 for backing up my contacts online but they dont seem to work with the G1?

    I feel stuck. Can anyone help please?

    PS will the shop guy now have all my contacts on his phone and access to my sms messages and emails (as I have set my own gmail account as a secondary email account on the G1).
