Only sync Gmail and not contacts
I don't want to sync any of my gmail contacts to my phone but under sync settings, if I turn off sync contacts, my email messages will not be synced either. Is there a way to sync only emails and not Google contacts as well?
I have the same problem with my Yahoo account, its an old account that I primarily use for signups and I don't want to sync my contacts, just the email messages.

Re: Only sync Gmail and not contacts
Welcome to Android Central! I think you can turn off Contacts sync on its own. Go to Settings/Accounts-Google, then select your Google Account. You should see "Contacts" and "Gmail" as separate entries. Uncheck "Contacts," and I think that should turn off Contact sync while keeping Gmail sync active.
