I really wish I knew what I did to get my contacts to sync with my Gmail account.
I have 118 contacts that somehow made it from my BB (they were put on the BB using an Advanced restore) to my Gmail account wirelessly. I did NOT enter any of them into Gmail....
I do have the Gmail app installed on my BB, so I believe I installed that after the contacts sync'd.

No longer a BES Admin, but it was fun while it lasted!
