I apologize if I am missing the obvious and making this far more complex than it is but I have read a lot of information about the phone and contacts and gmail etc and still am a bit stuck on getting the contacts as they are on my phone now to sync with gmail acct going in the phone---> Gmail direction.
I have downloaded 2 apps (companion link and gsyncit) and took a shot at using Outlook 2007 and I am just out of ideas.
I come from using a Palm TX with Palm Desktop
I put that to the side in order to work with the DroidX's sync with gmail figuring I could live with the Google calendar and contacts once I got settled. I'm willing to do the work to make this effortless but cannot seem to get it right.
I use my optonline pop3 app on the phone for email.
I have that set up in the gmail acct but removed the pop3 up on Google mail in case that was a problem. So now it's pure gmail acct and the phone that I am trying to sync up. I am so afraid of losing my phone contacts along the way. Took me forever to set that up.
1. Is there a way to export the phone contacts list to a file or an app that does that that I could then import to Gmail as my phone contacts list is far more extensive than my old Palm Desktop contacts. I tried to look on the sd card for the vcf file but that went nowhere.
2. Is there a known issue that would prevent the phone to gmail sync from working but easily allows the gmail to phone to work? If I make a test contact at gmail, it syncs fine into the DROIDX.
Does Froyo address any issues with regard to this topic?
After awhile having data all ove the place, in the cloud and on desktops/netbooks/phones becomes too much. I am trying to keep it simple to work with this phone which I absolutely LOVE!
