    Loving my new EVO and have been able to figure out almost everything I need, but a couple of things are not working yet so I need help.

    I have two Google accounts: a Google Apps (for my domain) account that is my primary e-mail, calendar and contacts; and a second Gmail account that is only used for Google Voice. There's obviously a problem in that I have two different lists of contacts, but I assume that Android would help keep those two lists synced for me. In the "People" app on the EVO I don't see a way to select different accounts, so Android must be merging the contacts from multiple accounts somehow.

    On the EVO, in Settings->Accounts & sync Background data and Auto-sync are both checked. Going into the Google Apps account I confirmed that Sync calendar, Sync contacts, Sync Gmail are all checked. That account seems to be working great and changes sync to Google quickly. In the Gmail/Google Voice account I confirmed that Sync contacts is also checked. The Voice app shows my inbox messages and placing/receiving calls via Google Voice works properly.

    At the Google website I logged in to my Gmail/Google Voice account and deleted all the contacts. I assumed that the EVO would then sync (push) all of my contacts from the phone to the Gmail account, but that doesn't seem to be happening. I've looked all around for a way to force Android to overwrite the online contacts, but I don't see an option like that.

    Is there a way to make this work? Let me know if I'm not explaining the problem clearly and I'll try again.
