When I got the Dinc2, no problem to sync my Gmail contacts with the phone, using the stock HTC People app. But when I added new contacts from the phone, the new contacts wouldn't sync with Gmail, although changes in existing contacts were reflected in Gmail. It turns out that when making a new contact, on the second line there is a drop down list called contact type, which defaults to phone. Any contact entered as phone contact type won't sync with Gmail, but if I drop down the contact type and choose Google, it will sync just fine.
Question - does anyone know how to change the default contact type for all new contacts?
