    I am using the Samsung Galaxy S

    I have sync working and all my Goggle contacts are listed in my phone.

    But they all appear in one group, called Google.

    I have my Google contacts in groups, and had hoped that the sync would bring down the group hierarchy. But it did not.

    However my phone is aware of the Goggle groups, because if I try to create a group in the phone with the same name as a Goggle group, my phone raises an error saying that the group exists.

    But I have no visibility to my Goggle groups on the phone. I only see a "Google" group.

    Is it possible to see my Google groups in the phone? If so, how?

    Thanks
    Stephen

    Do you mean the google groups reader?

    There are a couple of apps that do that. I use FeedR which can sync with your Google Reader acct and seems to work well.

    Maybe you could have a search from the google market.

    I have the same problem. I have posted in 3 different threads, so this is number 4.

    So far it sounds like an OS issue not specific to a phone or a ROM.

    For some reason the Google Contact Groups are not seen by the phone software as a data field (as best as I can see)

    Likewise address seem to be turned into a single line of comma separated text. Minor issue but something I noticed.
