    Hello,
    I have a problem setting up all my google accounts. Currently I have:
    1. user@domain.com - my apps account - I use it for gmail, calendar, contacts
    2. user@googlemail.com - my usual google account (picasa, reader, analytics etc.)
    3. user@domain.com - normal google account. I have to added it to make latitude work...

    Now... I think it's not the most efficient way to use 3 accounts. I would much prefer to have 2, but... I don't think nexus will be able to sync picasa with account 3 and it can't use lattitude with 2...

    How are you dealing with this problem?

    Regards,
    Michal

    I have 3 like you but only because I started using google services before GAFYD was released.

    AFAIK '3. user@domain.com - normal google account' should work with any google services so you don't really need to use the @googlemail.com account any more. I don't really use mine unless a service specifically requests an @gmail.com login but I haven't come accross one of those in ages.

    Thanks for quick reply!

    What about picasa sync in Android 2.1 - will it be possible to sync picasa from regular user@domain.com account? I'm asking because, I don't see picasa checkbox in this account on my N1.

    It's pretty easy to move stuff like analytics, reader etc. to the new account. I'm just worried that android won't sync picasa this way...

    Hello, I know my question is a little different but I am hoping someone might be able to help me with this, I have a little situation with my Google & face book accounts sync. Normally I do not use my Google account very much because I have yahoo and hotmail accounts. I can only configure the yahoo to work with my phone and not hotmail) When I get my phone, the phone automatically imported all my Google account and face book contacts but to my greatest surprise, I only see email ids for both accounts (Google and face book). Since, I only know my contacts by names and not emails, I decided to transfer all my contacts from my old phone manually. I was able to import all my contacts using sim cards (over 1500) but when I finished, I cannot see what I just imported. I picked the option of display contact with phone numbers but no contact display still to display. So I decided that I will just call people or when people call I will just add them, meaning that I will add their names and phone number to the email address already synced to the phone. So I decided to add back my contact like this again, one by one.
    Greatest surprise, whenever the phone synchronize, all my newly added contact will disappear and just go back to the way it was before...so does that mean that I can only updates my contacts from Google and face book on my desktop and not on the phone to save the updates when it synch...I am just confused and frustrated. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks again
