    Can someone please help me with this...I have my Sprint Hero and I love it, but this is driving me crazy.
    Everytime I send an e-mail whether on my Hero or just regular Gmail on my computer, that e-mail address gets added to my contact list.
    This is very frustrating as I just went through and deleted about 150 different email addresses I don't need including about 75-100 craigslist ads.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    In the contacts app you can go into settings and choose which lists you see in contacts. I sync with outlook, so I only have those contacts in there. I have the Google contacts hidden. I know what your talking about, it sucks, but it does auto-add on every freakin email. So, I hid all them.

    It's a google thing, I'm unaware of anyway to disable it.

    Go into contacts, go to groups. Menu - Sync groups.

    Remove the check from Sync all contacts.

    You're a life saver! I'm in the process of migrating all my contacts from my Palm to my N1 and have been wondering how I could get it to only show certain contact groups.

    Sure would be nice if there were more easily-discoverable manuals and FAQs for the N1 / Android.
