[Q] About contacts

Went to sprint store and they said the best way to do contacts is to get it the way you wanted under gmail.com contacts and then sync it.

I finally got the contacts the way I wanted, but I want to know:

1) How to completely clear out what's on the phone now
2) Sync it with what's up on gmail contacts

How do I do this?

Thanks

Brad

Go to setting/applications/mange apps
Then find contact storage. The clear data. Then go to settings/account and sync then enable background data then press on your email and then choose sync contacts and you should be good.

THANKS!
That worked!

Now one last question.

If memory serves, as people send me emails, they get added to my "contacts" under gmail automatically and thus would get sync'd automatically to my phone. How do I prevent or manage this? I get TONS of SPAM every day (200+ new emails) and don't want everyone coming over to my phone as contacts!

You can select only view contacts with phone numbers in the settings/view of the people app. But I believe if you go into gmail and your computer under settings you can disable automatic contacts add. I use gmail and my contacts only add if I tell it too.

I'm pretty sure it only adds a email address to ur contact list of it matches an existing contact or you add them on google talk or something
