    The iPhone 5 will be my first iPhone.

    right now, all my contacts are on my BlackBerry 9790 and synchronized with my GMAIL.

    what is the best way to have them all synchronized with my iPhone?

    Does iPhone have GMAIL Synchronization as well ?

    Can I still edit a contact on my GMAIL on a computer and expect that contact to have also been edited on the phone and vice versa?

    Search in App Store for app called google contacts. Is a free app. Enter email addy and password and gmail contacts come over. You can also sync from iTunes.

    You can set up your iPhone to sync wirelessly with your GMail account just like your BlackBerry did. The problem is if you have custom labels you'll get some messed up contacts. If you're lucky the custom labels will simply show up as "other".

    the only problem I had was all the landline phone numbers were imported as Fax numbers on the iPhone. I had to go through all those 400 so entries and edit them manually but that's about it. took me a full night's work :)
