Alright, so i just installed version 7.0.0 on my Inspire, and this is my first time using cyanogenmod. Is it just me, or is there no android market app? If not, then how do I install it on my phone? I tried going through the website, but that doesn't work.

Also, before I rooted my phone I had all my contacts saved to my Google account. Is there any way to sync my Google contacts to my phone now?

Nick, i was in the same boat and there is not much info on how to fix it.

However googling the crap out of it and I found the fix.

Google sued the Cyan developer so he left out all google apps.

The fix:

Use the Rom manager app you installed CM7 with, select download rom

Pick google apps

select reboot into recovery

Then select install .zip update that you just downloaded.

It installs on top of CM7 restoring google apps!

Hope this helps. It took me hours to figure this out.

Have you downloaded and flashed the google apps addon? This should be flashed straight after flashing Cyanogenmod on your phone, but it won't matter if you flash it later on. Google apps addon contains apps like the android market and gmail. Here are the links to download the google apps addon mirror 1 mirror 2.
About your contacts , if you go into settings -> accounts & sync, if your gmail account is not there, click add account and follow the process. If it is, click on the account and make sure the sync contacts box is ticked. This should solve your problem.

Thanks for the help guys, I honestly wasn't even expecting a response this quickly. I'll go check it out and see where it goes from there.

Also, when I went to add my Google account there, it only asked me for my Exchange account info and wouldn't accept my google login info. Thinking about it now though, it may be tied to the Google apps thing, so I'll go try that first.

Thanks guys, the google apps installation fixed everything. Guess that's what I get for rushing through the install and forgetting that I have to install that part myself.
