Question Is it possible to sync my pictures and contact to my gmail account?

I have a samsung moment... and have had it for maybe 3 weeks. How do you sync pictures and contacts to your gmail? I heard someone could do it with their G1... but I can't figure it out. Is this possible? Please explain. THANKS!

I got my Moment just a little over a week ago. All you have to do is link the phone with your Gmail account, then tell it to sync Contacts.

Go to the Apps, find the GMail app and launch it. If you haven't already linked your account, it should prompt you to do so. Essentially just entering your GMail address and password.

Once linked, from the Home screen you can tap Menu, select Settings and scroll down to Data Synchronization. Tap that, scroll down and you'll see three options to sync your Gmail, Calendar and Contacts. Tap the Contacts option and there you go!

You'll also see in this settings area you can enable auto-sync if you so choose. I personally don't want to but its a matter of preference...

I assume they were referring to the pictures you can link to your contacts in Gmail (i.e. contact thumbnails).

Because so that when I already have the pics on my gmail, I can send them to people right away. It would just be a hassle uploading them to photobucket, copying them, and uploading them on my email. o_O

Sorry I am a bit confused. Didn't you want to save the pics you attached to your contacts to Gmail? I think Gmails does this because a few of my contacts that I've sync'd does indeed keep the old photos I attached to them but it doesn't really matter since I sync my contacts with my Facebook account so that the pictures are taken from there instead.

As for emailing pictures you send, you should be able to create an email and just attach the pictures from your phones' memory/gallery. I'm not sure exactly how the Moment handles this but since it's Android it should be similar to how the Nexus handles it..

Your videos can be uploaded to either Picasa or YouTube both Google products and are integrated into the phone. From your gallery choose share the Picasa option is already there. And you have YouTube on your phone as well. Open it and menue>upload.
