    So I searched on google how to sync only "My Contacts" instead of "All Contacts" and it pulled up some threads for the HTC Hero. This one had a solution...

    "Now I think I've got it!

    "People" - I see you mean the picture of the people.

    "Groups" - Yes, I see it says "Groups" at the top of the screen.

    "Menu" - Yes, now when in this screen, I click on the "Menu" button.

    "Sync Groups" - Yes, now I click on the "Sync Groups" button.

    All list appears as follows:

    1) Sync All contacts
    2) My Contacts
    3) Group Name #1
    4) Group Name #2
    5) Group Name #3

    Because "Sync All contacts" was checked, all below were checked.

    I de-selected "Sync All contacts"

    I selected "My Contacts" as the only one to be checked.

    Since "My contacts" has all the contacts I want to be sync'd, I left this one as the only one to be checked.

    I think the problem is now resolved.

    Mission Accomplished."

    Problem is, when I follow these steps and press menu while in groups, there is no "Sync Contacts" option. Only "Add Group" and "Delete Groups".

    Anyone have a solution to this?

    Tap on the people icon (make sure you are in the "all" category), hit menu, select view, and make sure that the "show auto gmail contacts" is NOT checked. :D
