How can I sync my GMail contacts with my iPhone without iTunes? I tried using Microsoft Exchange with Google, but it syncs only one field per contact, not all. Please help!

    One downside to using Google Sync is that it doesn't allow you to organize your contacts into groups on the iPhone.  If you're looking for an alternative, you may want to try "Contacts Sync with Groups For Gmail" at the iPhone App Store.  You can read about it at:

    did you tried googlesync
    use Google's "Google Sync" (which uses Exchange ActiveSync.)

    Syncing with Google Sync gives you the ability to have contacts synced automatically without you having to connect your iPhone up to your computer. You can choose to have changes pushed to you, so your iPhone contacts will immediately reflect any changes made in Gmail, or you can choose to have it fetched every 15 minutes, half hourly or hourly. I sync my contacts, calendar and mail hourly and have found the data usage and battery usage to be negligible. Google Sync allows you to sync your contacts wirelessly. Google Sync will also wirelessly sync your Google Calendar and Email

    ?On your iPhone, go to Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars->Add Account->Microsoft Exchange
    ?Fill the 4 required fields as follows:
    ?Email: your Gmail address, for example your.name@gmail.com
    ?Domain: [ Leave this blank ]
    ?Username: your Gmail address again
    ?Password: your password for this Gmail account
    ?Tap "Next"
    ?A new field called "Server" appears. Fill it as follows:
    ?Server: m.google.com
    ?Tap "Next" again
    ?Select the Google services ( Mail, Calendar, Contacts ) you wish to sync
    ?Tap "Done"
    ?Tap "Keep on my iPhone", so that your existing iPhone Contacts and Calendars are preserved

    use the export option in Outlook to create a CSV and then import that to your gmail contact. From there you just need to set up Google Sync for your contacts

    gSyncit is a Microsoft Outlook add-in that allows for synchronization of calendars, contacts, notes, and tasks between Google and Outlook
