    while your in your gmail account click on contacts; if you see them on your pc and your device then they are backed up.
    every time you make a change, whether its on the pc or device, they will sync with each other

    sometimes google sync has delays, don't worry

    most importantly, "read-read-read" before you do anything

    Keep trying this is a security measure that Google uses. Once you keep trying it will eventually go through. I went through this one night and it drove me crazy. It will just start working! Strange!

    Everything I've read says if you are at iOS4 and you are having problems, do a total restore and set the phone up like a new one. Dozens have said this totally improved their speed. I did the restore from the get go on our old 3G and it works just fine, I see no major lagging or anything.

    I think going back to 3.13 is problematic. It can be done, but in some cases it has been reported that folks have bricked their phones. I wouldn't take the chance, but that is me.

    well after a lot of dicking about it with backing up contacts it does seem the phone is working better after a total restore , thanks for that OTACOBA

    You have more patience than I!

    I went to the Genius Bar last night and since I still have Apple Care on my 3G, they swapped my upgraded 3G for a 3.1.3 new refurb.

    They said that iOS4.1 will fix the lag; but he didn't know when it would come out.

    I am very happy to be back at 3.1.3 - in fact I will probably leave it here so when I upgrade to the 4, I can sell it as this version.
