I use MobileMe to sync contacts, and it's amazingly perfect. Never had issues. Two Macs and iPhone stay in sync, and I can sync as many weird fields that I like. Google offers free Exchange sync of calendars and contacts with Google counterparts as well.

Ok can someone tell me what i am doing wrong? I have all this setup and I see that my contacts get updated asap but when I add something on my iPhone calendar it shows on the phone of course but when I go to my google calendar online on my pc it does not show any thing in my calendar. Just a big old empty calendar lol. So please tell me what else i need to do. Thanks...

Did you follow the tutorial posted? Do you have your calendar turned on to sync.

Ok I think it is working :) now... It didn't do it lastnight though. One last question does Gmail become push now when active? I seem to get mail notifications while it is sent to push...
