    Hi all,

    I don't want my phone numbers to be sent to Google. How do I disable syncing the contacts on my phone with my GMail account?

    Sorry if I posted in the wrong place. I couldn't find any "help" forum.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums.

    I think it's device dependant, but generally speaking, if you store numbers as "Phone" contacts as opposed to Google ones, they won't sync to your gmail account.

    In the accounts and sync menu, if you're set to auto sync, on my Desire HD, I know you can select which parts of your google account you want to sync. Contacts is one of them.
