How may I view only my regular phone contacts and not have them sync to Gmail?
I do not, and do not want to, use Gmail, nor do I want to have my phone contact list connected to it. I use separate apps for email. Fine, those work well.
But...my carrier transferred my contacts from my old BlackBerry to my new Milestone X2, but once I registered for a "throwaway" gmail account (only to be able to use the app store) and unchecked the "sync" box, my phone contacts have disappeared.
Is giving Google access to my phone contact list a requirement for using an Android device? If so, back to the store it goes. If not, how may I view my regular phone contacts?
