    ok, so last week, when i added a contact on my HERO it auto sync'd with my Google account and added that person to my list when I looked on my PC. Now it is adding them to the phone only and I can not find where the setting is to add them to my Gmail account,... any ideas anyone ?

    When you create a contact, make sure that the Contact Type is Google and not Phone. Otherwise check to see if sync is on. Menu > Settings > Data synchronization > Google. See if Contacts is checked and Auto-sync is checked.

    Wrong forum. I really can't be of much help. Maybe contact the wireless provider.

    I have the same issue as well, Sprint HTC hero, (htc logo) Fresh 1.1 ROM

    when I hit "add contact" my only choice is "Phone". This must be recent because only 3 of my contacts are listed as "phone" while the rest are listed as "google"

    Is there any way to manually change this from phone to google once a contact is created? and is there any way to make google the default. I currently only have the "phone" option.

    I just found a work around app on the market called ContactSync. It basically takes all of your contacts and makes them "google" contacts, then syncs your phone to your google account.

    **warning this will change all contacts to google contacts, do not do this if you want to keep them separate**

    I just noticed a strange issue with my contacts. I have 8 of the many contacts on my phone saved in a folder on the main screen called Quick dial. These did not get saved to my gmail acct. Any ideas why? No big deal, as they are easy to re-create if lost, but strange none-the-less.

    Bump. Anyone have any ideas why these 8 contacts (saved in a quick dial folder on home screen) did not sync to my gmail? They all show as google contacts. Thanks!
