    I got the iphone on Tuesday and the Torch on Thursday. I like the torch much better than the iphone, but it is great to have a phone with a decent camera and video camera to film my boys.

    Here is my problem and it is a long story.

    I had a blackberry bold and went to a Droid. I used an old verizon phone to transfer most of my contacts into the droid and found out that all of my contacts would be saved to google mail. I had major problems with the Droid and I kept on losing contacts in gmail.

    I went to a Bold and Captivate last month. I got the Bold first and was able to transfer my contacts to the Bold 9700. A few days later I got a Captivate and a day or 2 later of the 225 contacts I had, I lost almost 200 of them along with about 15 of 23 emails I had saved.

    I got ride of the Captivate after a week and backed up my addresses on the Bold to Blackberry desktop manager 6.0 on Tuesday (8/10). After that I tried syncing the Bold with gmail to restore all of my contacts but it would not work. I turned off all of my wireless syncs and nothing worked. But when I went into my contacts I had 2 lists, the gmail with 35 contacts and one labeled as unknown with 188 contacts. I couldn't get gmail to sync up with the unknown list no matter what I tried. The wireless sync under the unknown list was always grayed out for off and I could not change it.

    Before I went to exchange my Bold for the Torch on Thursday I went to an ATT coporate store to try to transfer my contacts over from the Bold to the iphone 4 and they were able to move the ones from gmail over, but not from the unknown list. The rep there said it was as if the list did not exist on the Bold and he could not access it.

    So I am stuck and don't know how to get those contacts over to the iphone 4. Any help getting the unknown contact to sync over would be a greatly appreciated.

    Can I do the same thing with the Torch and save all of my contacts to gmail that way. Google sync won't sync my contacts from my unknown list.

    Google contacts was the best thing created, with the amount of phones i go through. i would get all your contacts backed up to google incase you ever want to switch a phone again.

    Yesterday I had an AT&T rep. transfer my contacts from my iPhone to my new Torch and I noticed the email addresses that are in some did not come over.

    Also, all my contacts have the word "Dummy" in the Notes area.

    ohh well...
