    Hi all,

    After much searching on the internet I successfully synced all my contacts on my Desire phone to my gmail account. Using gmail I then cleaned up all my contacts (I had several duplicates or contacts split up).

    I have wiped my phone of all contacts and am now trying to sync my contacts from gmail to my phone so that I have one clean copy, but no matter what I do it does not seem to be syncing the contacts on gmail back to my phone :mad:

    Please please please help!!!!

    Thanks

    I would recommend you get a copy of your contact on your PC with something like MyPhoneExplorer (which will sync with Google and/or Android) and work from there.

    Thanks Spile, but I need a bit more detail than that on what to do?? Do u mean get MyPhoneExplorer on my PC?

    I thought android phones should automatically sync with gmail contacts anyway?

    Yes, working with your contacts on a PC is much easier and safer than on a mobile device. Cloud based Contact sync in my experience unrealiable, hence a lot of posts askign why they get sync errors. MPE using wifi or USB is far more reliable in my experience.
