    did google finally add an option to turn off auto-add emails to my contact list every time i compose or write to somebody from my gmail account?

    i find it absurd if i send an email to a business or craiglist ad that it automatically shows up in my contacts list, which puts it in my pre phone list since its synce

    anyway to stop this annoying google "feature" ?

    No.. very frustrating. It just has to be in their future. Or at least allow us to distinguish between All and My contacts when tapping them for a sync.

    Uni search is the best way to get at a contact in the Pre

    Nope, your best bet is to just once a week or so, maintain your Gmail account online. If you delete the contacts there, they will delete off your Pre during the next sync.

    No No No, Google already canceled that.

    Gmail will NOT add every contact you email to your contact book! and they will NOT sync to your Pre! don't worry.

    they already thought of this.

    I just spent 10 minutes deleting craigslist email addresses that were automatically stored in gmail thus in my Pre.

    How can I make this stop? It's cluttering up everything.

    This should have taken only 10 seconds. Why so long? Can't you go into contact, search "craigslist.org", select all, and delete?

    Log into google account online. Go to settings>chat. In section "auto add suggested contacts", select "Only allow people that I've explicitly approved to chat with me and see when I'm online."

    I did this. Then I went into my google contacts and deleted everyone off craigslist, etc. Then I went to my Pre and forced it to sync to contacts.

    Voila!

    I am curious to know if this works for others.

    Yep, that's the way to do it. No other option right now until Google sees the light.

    No, it's no other option till you can tell your Pre to only sync from the "My Contacts" folder and not the catch-all bin. Google does what I want; my Pre does not.

    New to this forum stuff. My question is. I happened to notice that contacts from my Pre are now in my Google "My Contacts" but its only new contacts that I have added recently to my Pre. I want to add all the contacts that were transferred over from my previous phone also to my Google "My Contacts". How do I do this? When I tell the phone to sync it does not sync old contacts to Google.

    You do this from your Pre? People I email on me Pre don't show up as contacts, similar to how emailing them from a 3rd party email application on the computer doesn't have them show up either. I believe they only get added if you email them directly using gmail on your computer.
