I did this and all of my >1000 \"suggested contacts\" from gMail were synced to my Address Book contacts and my iPhone. Is there a way to prevent \"suggested contacts\" from syncing?

Do one for Windows please if there is one? I know I can sync my contacts via Windows Contact but I want to do it with Google!
