    Since google sync the contact to their servers, is there a way you can view your contacts on iGoogle or some widget on Window?

    You can also use the Gmail Contacts (on your PC) for quicker entry/management with a full keyboard of new contacts.

    OK thanks, looks like I'm going to have to start using gmail now.
    Too bad you can't add contact photos and sync them with the phone.

    Also for Mac users. I use a program called syncman, which syncs my mail with gmail and mobile me. it is a shareware but it only cost about 12 bucks. not a high price to pay to save the time to keep re-entering contact info.

    now i am confused...

    in my Gmail contact list, I assign a picture to a contact, and it appears as the contact picture on my G1. If I assign a contact picture on my G1, it appears as the picture assigned to the contact in Gmail.

    Graham's statement was "Too bad you can't add contact photos and sync them with the phone." - this is exactly what i have done. I guess I'm missing something

    Such as sneaky server side updates from Google at 3am when you are least expecting them :)

    Soon google will slip in a way for the girl/boyfriend/husband/wife/SO to snoop you calls and messages without even having your phone ...

    Do you still HAVE to add an email to person to input and image as their contact image?

    Fantastic! I did that as well. Time to delete all the bogus emails i added to contacts just to get a picture on them.
