    I see in my people folder, or contacts that they all say google, and when you go to add a contact there is a drop down "contact type" google or phone, can someone tell me the difference between the two.

    The "Google" type contacts are the ones that have been pulled down from your Gmail contacts. The "phone" type are the ones that you yourself have added to your phone.

    You can create "google" contacts on your phone as well. From what I understand, the "google" contacts will sync with gmail, the "phone" contacts will not. I dont have any "phone" contacts, so I can not verify that. Anyone know for sure?

    if i go into my gmail account, or somewhere in my google account, on my computer should there be a place where all this info is stored? i'd like to clean up my phone contacts but would rather do it on the computer.
