    So i want my gmail synced on my phone...but my list of contacts is huge due to having a gmail account for a long time.
    the problem i have with this is when i try to sms or use an app that look through contacts a tin of random contacts that i have mailed maybe once int he past pop up as suggestions. is there a way to remedy this without wiping and not syncing my gmail contacts?

    you may have to go into gmail and delete those random contacts. i believe your phone uses your "my contacts" group for sync. so just take them out of there

    Yes and no cdk

    On your computer, go to gmail. Under contacts, you will have "My Contacts" and "All Contacts" People under "my contacts" will sync with your phone and show up in the "People" app. "All Contacts" will show up whenever you are composing an e-mail, sms, etc. So yes, you will have to go in and delete those contacts if you don't want to sort through them. Usually though, once you have type the first 3-4 characters, the list should be small enough to select the correct contact.
