    Having just bought my Hero, I'm a little confused and looking for some advice from you knowledgeable guys out there.

    I imported all the contacts from my old SIM card. However, I've noticed that Google/Gmail contacts seem to be the more useful on the phone.

    Which is the better format and what are the pros and cons each?

    Should I be converting my contacts to the Google format?

    Thanks, in anticipation

    I was asking this also afew days ago...from what i was told importing contacts to google saves all the info online just incase your phone does a swipe and looses it. i still have my contacts saved to phone so i might have to save them to sd card and import them over. i guess google is safer, almost like a back up of all info etc...& if you add address, email etc then its worth it.
