    yeah but then you gotta transfer all your phone contacts to google, you have to relink facebook for each and every person, and my google account has so many spam contacts (it saves everyone i have ever sent or received an email from, i have hundreds from craigslist alone). i prefered this method better. but if your going from aosp to sense based or vice versa, then yeah google sync would fit the case better

    You can open your People app and change your settings so it shows only people with phone numbers attached to them. It also has several different options if that alone doesn't suit your tastes.
