When you tape the "+" button to add a new contact, you have a list of your contact storage places (phone, google, sim, etc...), juste switch to your google account to save your new contact to it

I think he ment if there was a way to have it on google by default (My old HTC did. And I keep saving to the phone on my new G2.. goddammit)

I would really like to know if there was a way too.

He wants to set in the built in Contacts app, that contacts save to his Google account by default. I looked in on your instructions, and there is no clear default there.

I wondered the same thing to.

Sorry, not contacts storage, but just plain contacts. Its under all apps. Scroll down and you will see "Clear Defaults". Next time you save a contact it will ask again which account to save it under and you choose Google this time.

It actually dosen't change. I tried it, and it remains the same. It just defaults it to phone contacts.
