Default Re: Losing contacts

The internal phonebook is a relict from Android 1.X times which is still there.

Some device manufacturers support it correctly, some are using it as sim card space and others as a side waggon of the gmail account. This explains why entries of the internal phonebook may appear in the gmail account.

To avoid this problem on your device, I recommend to create a new Synthesis account and use this one for syncing (instead of using the internal addressbook). Such an account will not have any connection to the gmail account.

Best Regards
Beat
