They have a app for 39 bucks which requires 2 other apps to sync which is a rip in my thoughts .... what i did was export my contacts to a csv(windows) format file onto my desktop. From there i logged into my google account online, imported the csv file under the contacts page, and advanced. and then once the contacts were uploaded online, went into settings sync on my phone and added the gmail account there and everything was sync'd for FREE :)
*** For calendar appointments do the same
now u have the questions of updates, it's gonna be kinda tedious and i have NOT tried it yet but i was thinking every tyme i have a new contact or calendar item i will have to forward the individual contact as an attachement to my gmail and add to my contacts, and for the calendar appt i was thinking i can email the calendar appointment to the gmail adcount......
Googleapp sync will NOT work unless u have a GOOGLE Business account, i tried and failed :(
Hope that helps
