    Make sure you have the proper Gmail attached to the phone, go to your contact list, click your menu button, select settings, click synchronize data, google sync, and make sure contacts is selected.
    Ps, Come to rogers

    i have the HTC hero and when i go to my contacts and hit the settings button all that comes up is import (google or phone) (tried both and neither did anything?) and a active sync button but it asks for my username and password so i put in my gmail. then it asks for a domain name... this is so dumb...

    Fwiw, same problem with me on my Eris. I've had it since January and to this day the contacts and calendar data in the phone do not match those in the Google calendar and contact area.

    I've tried all the steps several times thinking "maybe this time it'll take," but it remains the same. I've even cleared everything out of both entities, but once again, no change when I re-enter data no matter which one I do first: the phone or Google on my computers.
