    Ok, this is probably a strange situation but I am going to ask anyway. I have a friend of mine who has FINALLY decided to start utilizing gmail on his berry. Great so far. The problem is that when he installed google sync on his berry to push his contacts to his new gmail account, out of 500+ contacts, only about 26 actually showed up in his gmail account. I have tried to export his contacts numerous ways and even fired up a Bold 9650 simulator to try and work around the issue for him, but I am still not having any luck.

    With the 9650 vbb, I connected the vbb to DM and then used the IPD file to restore his contacts to the vbb. Great, everything appeared to work correctly. Virtual BB now has all of his 500+ contacts. Tried to then "sync" contacts with DM to a CSV file so he could import into gmail. Only 26 contacts exported. Tried to then install google sync on virtual bb and sync contacts. Same thing, only 26 contacts again.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of other way that I might be able to help him out? I found an application called ABC Amber Blackberry Converter, but it is $20 and I don't really want to shell out that much $$$ for a one-time thing like this and I have not been able to find any "similar" software that will do the trick. So far the only solution I have been able to come up with is to use the ABC software trial (limit of 10 contacts per export) and try to export all of his contacts from the ipd file.

    If anyone has any other suggestions on how to work around this, I would greatly appreciate it and I am sure he will as well.

    Thanks in advance fellow CrackBerry Addicts!!! CRACK ON!!!!!

    When you go to the Google account, and click on the contacts button it only shows a total of 26 contacts, or 26 most contacted?

    When I look at my Gmail contacts it shows up like this - which can be a bit confusing depending how you read it. (on my device I only have 105, but the rest are people I have shared emails with)

    I am sure that "All contacts" is only 26 contacts and none in most contacted.

    Inside the Google Sync application, press menu then log out or exit. After doing this, log back into the application and sync contacts again. There have been some issues (I had some yesterday) with Google Sync.

    I have already tried the log out and log back in trick and I have even restarted the virtual BB to make sure that this wasn't the problem as well. I am open to any suggestions because I would hate to see him have to manually re-enter 500+ contacts just because we can't find a way to restore all of them from his blackberry.
