    Re: contact integration with gmail

    I thought that happened already.....

    What do you mean by contact integration?

    My Mobile G-Mail app auto-fills my gmail contacts as i am typing in the "to" box.

    There are some third party programs that do it. I don't know about fow windows, but there's one for Linux that's fairly complicated. I still haven't figured it out. The easiest way really is to export from gmail as csv and sync via desktop manager. But then, some info doesn't exactly play well with the blackberry. But I know what you mean. I'd love it if my Blackberry was in bed with Google and everything worked. Blogger, Reader, Gmail, Picasa... Maybe someday.

    I use plaxo.com to manage my contacts, which can connect to gmail, linkedin, outlook, etc.. to sync your contact info. Then it just syncs to my phone. It's pretty handy.

    If you have a lot of contacts its worth the $50/year. Their new beta "2.0" version of the site is pretty nice too.

    Yup. Not exactly automatic, but it works.

    Re: contact integration with gmail

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~my gmail exported with the first and last name together when I opened up the excel file. I inserted a new column and separated the first and last names. Then I imported everything and synched the bb. Worked well, but it did take a little while to separate the first and last names of 600± contacts....

    Did the same thing, and it was as close to a sync as I could get....but it worked!
