Second GMail for address book backup.

    Here's the situation I have.

    The GMail account I have and registered to my cell phone when I got it is an account I've had since the first few weeks GMail was in beta by invitation only over 5 years ago. Needless to say, I have hundreds of contacts in that account.

    When I activated my Droid, they ALL came over. What a mess. The Verizon guy emptied my contacts on the phone and uploaded my phone book from my BlackBerry.

    I want to sync my Droid's address book to a second gmail account I made just for this purpose, but I can't get them to sync over. How do I delegate my phone's contacts sync with that second Gmail account?

    I added it under Gmail and logged in. Under Contacts > Accounts, that account sync is ON for contacts and auto-sync & Background data is checked.

    IIRC you can use groups to control what's synced with Android.

    As far as I know, Synchronicity is the good choice to backup/restore Gmail address.
    If you have Blackberry and Android which are synced with gmail, they can share same address book.

    what if you use Kies to export the contacts then import them into gmail contacts ... ?

    That would be the simplest option.
