Issue I'm having is that if I turn on contacts sync then I have two different address books. Not two different icons, but if I open up contacts and click menu and go to options, I have the option of "select contact list". I can choose my BES or my gmail.
Problem is I'd like to remove the gmail contacts list and cannot figure out how to do it! I've tried deleting the gmail BIS account and reloading, but that didn't work...
I've been fighting this same issue.
When I upgraded my Storm to a Storm2, the new phone had the syncing option already on, even though I was using the Google Sync App.
It totally hosed up my contact list both on Gmail and my BB. I had 11+ identical entries for each contact! So I had to wipe my BB address book, wipe my Gmail address book and restore an older backup (thank god I had one!).
So I figured I'd try turning off the Google Sync App, and try to use the new native Syncing on the BB OS. I wish I hadn't, because now I have everybody I've ever even emailed in my BB.
I use contact groups in Gmail to manage all the contacts, and the Google Sync app was smart enough to only Sycn ones in the "My Contacts" group (i.e. contacts I specified as "keepers").
I guess I am going to have to wipe the BB contact list (again), and turn off native sync and turn back on the Google Sync app.
The Google app has always worked perfectly for me - not a single problem.
Let me know if anybody comes up with a fix or workaround so that we don't have to rely on a 3rd party app to sync our contacts. I'd prefer to use the built-in sync method, if it wasn't so damn sucky...

Well the fix I have found is for u to delete ur contacts and re address book before u synced. But don't turn on google sync just yet. That's what I found to be a fix when I was syncin
