    Duplicate Contacts

    Hi,
    I recently bought and set up my droid 2. my provider is verizon and I have backup assistant. my contacts keep syncing from my gmail account creating duplicates.( from what I can understand, you have to have a gmail acct. for verizon's data package) How do I stop my phone from syncing from that gmail acct. My contacts update automatically through my verizon backup assistant.

    Well, I personally would suggest keeping the Google contacts and dumping the Verizon Backup Assistant. I do know that if you login in to your gmail account's inbox, you can then select to view the contacts. Once the contacts are displayed select the "More" button at the top and one option is to merge duplicates. That will get you back to only one set of contacts. With your contacts tied to your Gmail account they will follow you whatever device you use, even if it isn't on Verizon.

    Good luck.

    Duplicate Contacts

    My gmail account says I have 'no conversations'. and when I open up 'more' the sync contacts is unchecked? so I don't understand where the sync is coming from?

    That's what you get when you go to the Gmail Inbox and select Contacts from the menu on the left of the screen?

    when I click on the gmail app, it just opens up and says 'no conversations'. I don't use this mailbox. All my emails go to my verizon.net account?
