    Hi all.
    Hopefully someone has the answer for me.
    I have a Galaxy S with LauncherProPlus on it.
    I recently bought a Wildfire for my son and he has recently put LP on his as well.
    He has just pointed out that all my contacts are now on his phone.
    Both phones are on my TMobile account.
    How on gods green earth has this happened, we havent swapped cards or anything?
    Am I missing something?

    Not that I know of.
    Could he have tried to download something with my google account (the little shit)?

    anyway, does that mean my contacts are on my google account?:thinking:

    Your contacts are stored on your Gmail account, yeah. When you set up his phone did you make him a new email through Gmail or just put yours in? If you put yours in, even to set it up, it will pull your contacts into his phone. Other than that, I don't know how it could have happened. Go into his phone and go to settings > accounts and see which Google account is there; if it's yours, go ahead and erase it and your contacts shouldn't continue to sync.

    Ive just looked in accounts as you suggested but it is only his gmail account that I set up for him.
    I have LPP and he downloaded LP the other day.
    He says thats is when the contacts appeared.
    I paid for LPP via market using my google account. He hasnt paid for his so im baffled as to the link
    The only link I can see is that I own both phones :thinking:

    I am pretty sure the contacts thing did not have anything to do with LP.
