    I am pretty confused about how contact synching with Gmail is supposed to work. I want to synch all contacts and groups between the phnoe and Gmail account. Pretty simple you'd think.

    I have a number of Groups which I'd like to assign my contacts to. At present new groups I've created either on the phone (Galaxy S) or within Gmail are not being created on the other platform. I presume they should be.

    The second issue is that I have a number of contacts that I've created directly on the phone which just do not get synched across to Gmail and I have no idea why.

    I just experimented with one new contact. It has first and last names, email and mobile. I've tried assigning it to a group, removing it from a group, editing it but it never sync to gmail. How can I force this? Surely it doesn't just synch one way?
