    I have a new Xperia Z (the new phone) and I gave my Xperia T (the old phone) to my daughter. The new phone has my gmail account on it on as does the old phone. I removed my contacts from the old phone and updated my new phone but this re-added all the contacts back on to the the old phone as well as onto the new phone! Please help - daughter very annoyed.

    Welcome to the forums, laltunny! :wavey:
    Have you tried a full factory reset? It will generally (if not always) remove your Gmail account from the phone.

    That's an option but surely theres a less drastic way.

    I'd recommend it also just for the fact that you're handing the phone off to someone else.
    But, if not, you can go into Settings - Accounts and Sync - and turn off sync for your Gmail account.
