If you're using a Mac, you can set Address Book to sync contacts with GMail, and then bring them over to the phone. I assume there are similar options for syncing Gmail contacts on the PC side of things...

just make a contact for whoever gmail account you want. that way whenever you wanna send off an email you can just type their name and the email pops up for that contact.

Hi Guys,

new here so forgive me if this doesn't answer the question... But you can import all you Gmail contacts to your iPhone. Firstly, make sure all your gmail contacts are up to date and delete the ones you don't want to copy over.

Second, make sure you have the latest iTunes and iPhone 2.01.

Open iTunes with your iPhone connected. Select the info tab on the iPhone page, then under Contacts you will see the drop down defaults to "outlook" change the sync contacts with "gmail" and enter all the log in info etc... and there ya go... all your gmail contacts on your iPhone..

Hope this helps

Thanks Croucher.

This seems very promising. However, i am currently on 2.0. I am waiting for developers to jailbreak 2.01.. I don't know if its done already or not.

BUt if this works, This is awesome!

Gmail is not an option -- only Outlook, Yahoo, Windows and Google contacts.

Oops - I realize Google and Gmail are the same. I had failed to "apply" my new settings and thus it was not synchronizing. It worked -- thanks!

Tonight I finally set up my google contacts properly and used Nuevasync to push them to my phone. I set my wife's phone up to access my gmail account as well, so now we're both synced in regards to calendar and contacts.

Come on Gmail push! Do it! It's the last link in the chain for me...

There's an app called Sync in a Blink (www.syncinablink.com) that will sync your contacts between your iPhone and Gmail.

There's an option in the app to only sync contacts if the contacts have a name. This helps eliminate syncing some suggested contacts in Gmail since suggested contacts only have email addresses and no name.
