    After (most all of) my contacts were moved to my Google account from my old Pre by Sprint (because of course, Palm profile backup didn't work on new phone when I did the process correctly after old phone speaker broke), I still have 24 contacts left in my Palm profile (out of an original 1000+).

    -Here is my story for transferring Palm profile contacts to Google (gmail) contacts (post #6)...
    http://forums.precentral.net/webos-s...ts-google.html

    Is there a way to filter my contacts to just show me a view/list of the ones that are Palm Profile contacts (or Google, Yahoo, Facebook, etc.) or else put contacts in order of what contact account/type (i.e. Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Palm Profile, etc.)??? Obviously you can go into the menu, click on Preferences & Accounts, and then click on each one and see how many you have in each specific account, but can you see which ones belong to that account??? I would like to delete these (my Palm Profile contacts) altogether and also make sure that each of those 24 still there are in my Google contacts as well before doing so, and don't really want to go through over 1000 contacts one by one.

    Unfortunately no, you can't sort the contacts by source. Your best option is to sit down at your computer. Remove all accounts from your device Facebook, Google, Yahoo. That will leave just your Palm profile contacts then you can compare them to your Google contacts on your computer.

    That's not a bad idea at all. Thank you for that. But... If you could, maybe we should add that to the list of what we wish the Pre could do. I seem to remember some filters that we could do on the Treos.

    I did it while doing a partial erase to fix my app downloading issue. When it came to the part to add my other accounts/confirm their passwords, I just clicked on skip. The only contacts on my phone at first were the Palm Profile ones, those 24. I went through and confirmed their existance on my Google account via my desktop computer, and deleted all of them except for the 2 Sprint ones. Now I'm adding the passwords on for my other accounts to sync back in. First Facebook was the only one to sync and it took awhile. So far Goggle is still showing no contacts in my phone. I'm assuming that it will just take a bit for the sync to begin and it probably only sync one account at a time (please confirm anyone).
