    Hey, I'm thinking of removing my gmail account from my phone, but when I go to, it says it'll delete all the contacts and such associated with it. Does this mean all the contacts I've had since I've had VZW, or just Google contacts?

    Well I go on gmail and look at contacts, and it's all my contacts. Does this mean that I'll no longer have them and have to re-enter them after the account is removed? Or will I just not have them backed up to Google if anything were to happen?

    They will still be associated with the Gmail account just not your Droid.

    I want to take the gmail account off the droid and keep my contacts. I don't really want the gmail account at all actually.

    Then turn off sync before you remove the account.
    I would also do a backup to the sdcard.

    Ok, that should leave the contacts?
    What app would you recommend for doing the backup?

    BTW, your sig is great... the cop on the phone part.
