    How to synch Google calendar but NOT contacts?

    I have problems with Gmail contacts when synching. It add duplicates of all of them every time on the phone, for one, plus I don't like the limited fields. How can I use Google calendar but turn off synching contacts? Even if I delete all contacts on Gmail, it uploads them from the phone.

    I don't use Gmail, and manage contacts on the phone from a vcf file on the SD card.

    btw

    If this solved your problem I would go thru all your settings screens and check out all options on every screen to see what they do

    I looked through all the settings including Other Google Account settings and there was no synch or autosynch to be found.

    Phone is a nexus one so maybe they assume I want to synch everything?

    I am talking about your phones menu settings

    Not google settings

    They should be there for all nexus 1 phones

    OK, now I see.

    Except Autosynch is greyed out because I unchecked background data. Even then,
    when I go to my gmail account the synch contacts, gmail and calendar only have synch icons, not checkboxes. It then starts to synch all of them with no way to synch only the calendar. If data access is disabled there are no synch icons.

    I have no other accounts. Is this maybe a limitation of the first google account on the phone where it forces you to synch all?

    The only workaround I've found is to delete all my Gmail contacts before synching the calendar.
