    Deleting contacts & emails on phone without getting rid of them on GMAIL

    Anybody know who to prevent this from happening? When I set my phone up it loaded every singe contact from my GMAIL contacts onto my phone. I don't necessarily want all of these clogging up my phone, but when I go to delete them from my phone they also get deleted from my contact list in GMAIL. Also the same with emails. If I delete them on my phone, they get removed from GMAIL inbox.

    My old blackberry would give the an option of "delete from phone" or "delete from phone AND gmail".

    I am unsure and have a question to pose to you..Is there a way for the opposite to happen? I want my Droid to sync to GMail to check for mail and such but I do not want my contacts to be sync'ed every time I add them on my phone....This is a security matter for me. Any ideas?

    I'm not sure lord kastle. I think they will be automatically added because the droid automatically syncs with gmail. With my old blackberry I had to go into the google sync application and manually tell my phone so sync with gmail and could pick what information I wanted to sync up. It seems like the droid would have this option, but I can't find it.

    From your home screen, go to Menu_Accounts & Sync_***@gmail.com (select which account you want to "tweek")_then check which items you want to sync. The options include:

    Sync Calendar
    Sync Contacts
    Sync Gmail

    After the initial setup of your device they are all checked by default and will sync regularly. You can uncheck any or all of them to stop the regular "Syncs".

    Hope that helps.
