    The groups I have setup in Gmail are not available from my Droid. My contact list is supposed to be synchronized, so I don't understand why my groups wouldn't show up. I often have to send emails to the same people, so I have a custom group configured for my team.

    Any idea how to get Gmail groups to show up?

    Ah, I'm not the only one who is puzzled. In GMail I have three groups created by GMail itself (I guess) Friends, Collegues and Family that don't show up in my HTC Hero.
    I can create a new group in GMail using the same name (e.g. Friends, Colleagues, Family) and I end up with two groups with the same name. However I can't delete the original group (the one that doesn't sync). Kind of weird both being a Google product and all.

    Same issue here. I added employees to my coworkers group on gmail and they are showing on my droid as contacts, but I can't find anyway to associate them or link them into the group coworkers. I run Launcher Pro, so I did find the option under my gmail account on my phone to check coworkers thinking that would solve the problem, but I still can't get them under this group on my phone. Anybody?

    So the groups are showing up on the phone. The problem is that the stock contacts and mail programs don't see them. If you try a different contact app (i'm using Phonebook 2 till I find something better) it sees all my groups fine. Also Launcher Pro Plus has a people widget that saw my groups no problem and was able to have a widget with a group the stock apps don't thinks is there.
