I have a Sprint LG Optimus phone.

I have a question in regards to my contacts list. I know that if I do a factory reset on my phone that it will delete my contacts list, BUT as soon as I re-sync my phone with my gmail account, those contacts will automatically go back on my phone.

My question is this, I would like to use another gmail account on my phone and NOT use the old one, but I am hoping to get around putting all those contacts in again. Can I sync my phone with my new gmail account while my old was is still synced on the phone, then do the factory reset and only sync it with the new account after that and have my contacts load on to my phone?

Thank you for your time, I greatly appreciate it.
