    I thought my SGs would sync to my Gmail contacts over the air without doing data transferring over PC with a cable. But this does not hapen, as I refresh the synch manually, it says it has synched but obviously the contacts list in my phone and Gmail at the web are totally irrelevant. For example I merged some contacts in Gmail contacts but this does not show up in the phone even though it shows to be synching over the air. Maybe a simple issue to handle but I would appreciate the help very much as a new transfer to Android from Symbian...

    Check point no 3 here. It appears the only solution is to work only with gmail contacts

    Yep - I have moved all of my phone numbers etc into Google contacts so there is nothing directly on the phone / sim.

    I also did find that I had to do a fair bit of clean up on my google contacts (did this via gmail on the web) and spend a bit of time linking to facebook and exchange contacts.

    There is quite a useful option in the contact app that i use, something along the lines of 'show only contacts with phone numbers'. Quite helpful.
