If you sign into a Google™ account during the initial setup process, your HTC EVO Shift 4G automatically synchronizes contacts with your Gmail account.
If you add contacts to your HTC EVO Shift 4G before signing into your Google account, your contacts don't synchronize with Gmail. They save as Phone Only contacts.
After you've associated your Google account with your HTC EVO Shift 4G, anytime you add, import, or transfer a contact, you can choose where to save the contact. Contacts don't synchronize with your Google account unless you select Google.
