    Hi!

    I just downloaded the update for my Eris and, well, I was inpatient. My contacts were wiped out, and NOW, after reading, I guess they would have re-synced with just a little time. But I didn't give it any. I re-synced right away. So ALL my Google contacts are synced, so random email address, the works. I know how to go to Groups and sync only My Contacts (My Contacts is set up the way I want it in my phone), but that doesn't work with the update (that menu option is no longer available under People>Groups>Menu)

    How do I get rid of all the extra contacts? I can't figure it out and I can't find the information anywhere either.

    Thank you!

    Anyone? I know it's only been a few hours, but I'm kind of going crazy seeing all these random email addresses and scrolling through extra contacts. :thinking:

    Open the People app, stay in the list of all contacts. Menu->View, turn off "Show auto gmail contacts."
