    I just got the OTA GB push today and I have a question about the Contact storage settings.

    Under Contacts / Menu / More / Settings / Contact Storage, there the following options:

    • Google (my email address)
    • Backup Assistant (Phone)
    • Phone-only, unsynced (my email address)

    Backup Assistant was set by default after the update, but the Google option sounds more appropriate to me. I would like my Google account in the cloud to contain the master list of my contacts so that any time I make a change, addition, or deletion on my phone that change is updated to the Cloud.

    Which option is correct?

    Thanks!

    I prefer Google for the same reasons you stated. I don't even use Backup assistant.

    You can disable BA by going to Settings / Programs / Manage Programs / All Tabs / Sync Storage / Clear Data and after you do this if you are rooted you cab use Titanium Backup and freeze the BA app to disable it all together.
