Moving contacts from phone to google
I came from a blackberry and I used backup assistant to backup my contacts on my blackberry and re-sync them to my incredible. They are all phone contacts and I would like to make them all google contacts and I know how to export to the SD card and reimport as google contacts.
Can someone who has done this tell me if I do this will I have doubles of each contact after importing the list as google contacts? As in 1 seperate phone contact and 1 seperate google contact for each person? I really dont want doubles of each person in my list and I want this to be as clean as possible. TIA for any advice on thisBB Tour 9630 > BB Bold 9650 > HTC Incredible

I used Google Sync to get my contacts moved from my Blackberry to my Incredible.
Why are you using both Backup Assistant AND trying to import with the SD card? If you have a gmail account linked to your phone, the contacts should sync from your phone to google automatically. If they're not, just check the gmail account settings, and make sure contacts is set to sync. Then check on gmail from your computer to see the updated contacts.Droid Incredible <> Ubuntu 10.10 <> @thecatwasnot

The problem is that with Backup Assistant, you can't turn that sync off. So it's just gonna dump all the phone contacts back in again next time it runs. So you would have to either factory reset the phone, and not set it up again, or log in online, export your contacts to a file so they're saved, and then delete them all from your online VZW account.
