    i have a little problem i'm hoping someone has an answer for. just a minor inconvenience:

    i used to have my phone set to sync with google, which alerted me every time i received an email. I then found out that google sync was causing an issue with my contact pictures, taking them from facebook and resizing them. it caused them to looked pixelated or "zoomed in" in hillibilly terms haha. So now i have it set to never sync with google. So now i never receive a notification when i receive an email. Anyone know a way I can set it to sync ONLY to gmail and not sync the contacts? I don't really need to sync them anyway, as I have backup assistant for that purpose

    If you go to settings, accounts & sync and under manage accounts select your Google account.

    Once in there you have the option of synching Calendar, Contacts and Mail. Untick the ones you don't want synching.

    Another option is to only save your contacts on the phone and not in google mail.
