    hi there

    just dragged myself into the new era and got myself a htc desire. at the moment i have a number of contacts/people on the phone but ATM am unable to sync/copy/backup the contacts/people onto my laptop. have installed htc sync on laptop but have not managed to get contacts over yet.

    could anyone suggest a way to store the contacts that i have so far to my pc/laptop so if the worst ever happens i still have a way of obtaining previous numbers

    thanks for your time

    when you first set the phone up did you log a googlemail or gmail account in with them?

    if so just go into settings> accounts & syn> Google> and then just make sure Sync contacts is ticked....

    that means then your phonebook is getting synced back to your gmail account on your computer...if you go on your pc and bring up gmail and click contacts they should all be there...
