    I'm use to the contacts on my iPhone being sync'ed both ways - meaning phone to pc/mobileme and or the other way around - thus just one set of contacts (which can be split up in different groups).

    Now on the Hero there are sim, phone and google contacts. So obviously the sim contacts on the sim, that I get. But why are there phone contacts and google contacts? I take it then, that the phone contacts will sync'ed with a pc and the google contacts obviously with google. Am I right thus far?

    Not using pc's (Windows) - will it be better for me to just use the Google contacts on my Hero (export contacts from OS X address book, import in to Google contacts and then sync OTA)?

    Thx in advance for any feedback...

    I found Google contacts to be the easiest way to manage my contacts, and if you can easily import the contacts from your OSX book then this is the method I would recommend
