    Hi guys, ok I've always been able to sync my google contacts with my pre. Now I've noticed that it is only syncing one way. Meaning i only can add contacts to gmail and have them pushed to the phone but not the other way around

    if i change anything on the phone it won't update in gmail. I can only get information pushed to the phone.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Yeah it been happenning to me too... I think google sync probably depends on Palm servers perhaps. If there's something wrong on that end it might be preventing proper sync...

    I just tired a test with mine and it syncs both ways.

    This is interesting.

    Mine syncs both ways. I just updated a couple of contacts on the Pre and my gmail contact got updated too.

    P.S. - Make sure your gmail account is set as default account in contacts preference.

    unfortunately this is hit or miss, sometimes it works sometimes it does'nt. there are several threads both here and on palm's website about the pre not linking back to the cloud and sending information to it. I think we are all hoping that with thursdays release this bug is worked out.

    Mine works sometimes and not others. For example just tonight I edited an existing contact with important data. I told my pre to sync to gmail. I looked at it later and the information I had changed was gone. It synced with gmail but it put the old information from gmail to my pre instead of taking the new information from my pre to gmail.

    Generally when I notice problems like this, I go into gmail and export ALL contacts to a file. I delete All contacts in gmail. I sync my pre to gmail, so now BOTH gmail and pre are contact free. I import my contacts back to gmail, then sync my pre again. After that it seems to work. I just did that now and tried to sync both ways and it fixed the problem. Why? No idea.

    so i have been having this problem as well, but it seems to be very specific--only one way when editing. that is, I can edit gmail--> pre no problem, add new contact pre-->gmail, no problem, delete contact both ways, no problem, but if I edit a contact on the pre, it does not change on gmail (the only exception to this is if I add a contact to the pre, then later edit it)...however, the contacts that were pre-existing on gmail can't be edited on the pre). My wife's pre is not having this problem at all.

    for all of you who are having with the google contacts not syncing properly, is your contact list pretty large? i just tried it and it works fine for me, but my contact list is pretty small. my sig other's list, on the other hand, is close to 700 and we're nervous about using google contacts if it's so buggy. thx.

    This is EXACTLY what mine is doing. I have 863 contacts in google. I've been thinking of splitting them into the three gmail accounts I have. One for work, one for friends and family, and one for general contacts. Perhaps this will help.

    The only problem is an inability to choose to which account a new contact goes, I may not always want it to go to my default.
