    Now here is a tricky one:

    I have about 100 contacts stored under one of 3 accounts in my G2. Now this gmail account has been deleted and I am getting a sync error message. I am trying to move those 100 contacts to one of the active gmail accounts on my phone. Sinse the gmail account was deleted I can't log onto to it on my desktop and export/import. I tried the Backup Contacts app, but it doesn't include the gmail account the contacts are stored under.

    Any help?

    Um...you deleted the acount that stored the contacts, THEN tried to move them over? Why not ttry moving them before you deleted the account

    Well - this was a joint account and the other person deleted it without letting me know. Now I am stuck with contacts I need to move over to another account. It's complicated :)
