    Being I can't sync my Hero with my XP laptop for some reason I would like to get my contacts from Gmail onto my Hero. Any suggestion on how to do this. I have played around with it but haven't figured out the right combination. As always I appreciate the help..........

    Assuming you connected your hero to the Gmail account in question when you set the phone up, it should automatically sync them onto your phone.

    Are you using the same account, or a different one?

    Same phone same account. I would like the email addresses synchronized over. I even went to People, gmail, sync and go through that process to have it fail there saying pass word or log in is wrong. I just can't get it. It asks for domainserver and I put gmail.com. maybe that is the problem.

    i know it sounds simple, but have you tried typing googlemail.com instead of gmail.com?

    I just tried the "googlemail.com and no joy.
    Should SSL be checked?

    When you set up your gmail account, did you use the "googlemail" app or the "mail" app

    Now that is a good question. I would guess I did the straight Gmail thing. I don't remember the google signup. But that may be what's bogging me down. My android device does go to gmail and get my mail automatically and works fine.
    thanks for the feed back........ Hopefully I'll get it one of these days..........
