    I have been adding contacts to people and have added a new group. When I long into my Google account some show up and some don't. Any idea why? How do I merge my HTC with Google and how do I set the time it merges?

    I think you are best to manage your contacts from the gmail acc. On my Desire the gmail acc contacts sync with my phone almost straight away. however if you are saving contacts to your mobile as "phone contacts" i don't think these sync with your gmail acc.

    The easiest way I have found to do this is to select People>> Menu>> Import/Export>> Export to SD Card>>Phone. Once that is done just delete all of your contacts. Next, select People>> Menu>> Import/Export>> Import from SD Card>> Google. This will allow all of your contacts to be in your gmail account.

    Ok, I tried that. When I import SD card, Google, then if asks for a selection. Either one vCard, Multiple vCards or all vCards. I tried all three and I only get a few of my contacts back.

    That worked for me very nicely. Thanks. Only issue was that Gmail keeps contacts for every single person I've ever e-mailed so I had over 400 contacts I had to weed through and delete. Other than that, it worked beautifully. Contacts are now backed up in the cloud. Very happy about that.
