    The ExchangeSync in my HTC Desire hasn't exactly been flawless but after several hard resets and countless adding and deleting of exchange accounts it's been working all right for a while now. Sure, it does continues to sync a few times every day, though I've sett the sync to manual, but that I've learned to live with. But a couple of weeks ago it started to change my settings on it's own accord.

    I only want my google contacts in my phone, so I've set the settings for my exchange account as follows:
    Schedule: Manual
    Sync mail: checked
    Sync contacts: NOT CHECKED
    Sync calendar: checked

    But even though I perform no manual sync on my exchange account hardly a day goes by without my exchange contacts suddenly appearing among the google contacts.

    If I then look at the settings for Exchange ActiveSync in Accounts & sync the "Sync contacts" is checked. Every time this happens I uncheck it and clear the data from Contacts Storage in Manage applications. My google contacts are then eventually synced and everything is as it should be for a few hours or a day, or till I restart my phone. And then the exchange contacts appear again...

    Does anyone have any advice? This erratic behaviour of my phone is driving me crazy.

    I am having the same issue on my Evo. Did you happen to figure out a solution to this?

    I have the same issue. I uncheck the "Sync Contacts" option under the Exchange ActiveSync account and it randomly turns itself back on. I only have it set to sync my mail. Were you able to figure out a solution? I have an htc Aria updated with Froyo.

    Thanks in advance.
