Hi, Just getting started with my HTC Desire which works nicely with my gmail account. However the contact syncing is giving me a bit of a headache. I had my contacts set up, but the birthdays kept disappearing. I logged into Google Mail/contacts on the computer, and added the birthdays there with the intention of making them show up on the phone calendar. Now going back to the phone, the contacts who I added birthdays to have lost some of their phone numbers!! The phone numbers aren't present when I access the contact on the computer, so presumably saving the contact with the birthday and no numbers has wiped the numbers on the phone. But why didn't the phone update my Google contacts with the phone numbers? I'm having to update everything logged in to Google contacts, which renders the phone a very expensive piece of kit which I wouldn't be able to add any phone numbers to directly, because they'll disappear as soon as I edit the contact via a Google website! Anyone know how i can correct this and what is going wrong? Fortunately the numbers I lost were family so I know half of them anyway and can easily retrieve the others, but I'd be a lot more pissed off if they were some less well known numbers. TIA.
