    Okay. First off... I love Google.

    I have the X (very nice BTW) and I have a few questions.

    Everytime a save a new contact or add a phone number, or anything from the phone is defaults to add it to the Gmail profile. I like gmail, but I'm pretty sure I want my work mates to be on the work account. Is there a way to change that default or does Google really want that infomation?

    Can I disconnect gmail? I know... ouch... but it keeps getting in my way. I use gmail, but I need the phone to be a work phone. I don't want Gmail stealing all my contacts. I mean seriously, it scanned my AD at work (awesome) and I saved the person... it went to gmail. When you pull someone off the AD, why does it dup them in Gmail, obviouslyt the phone was smart enough to look there, but not save there?

    I need a nice line. My average conact now has 3 linked profiles. I want most in the "phone" and work people in the "work" and gmail...sorry. You don't need to know any of these people.

    Any ideas or thoughts.... I hate Google bashing, but I need the phone to act like a smart phone and not a gPhone. (Yes I know who makes it, but even Apple doesn't steal your contacts...ouch)

    I want to do the same thing, but the opposite way. My phone is defaulting to the "Phone" contacts and not "Google" contacts.
