How to sync my contacts with google and yahoo accounts?

Postby pradeep » Fri Nov 26, 2010 4:19 pm

Can you please tell me how can i sync my contacts form google/yahoo account.
I could only add twitter & facebook integration with contacts.

Note: As mentioned in social hub site, i could not see any option to add new contact to google/yahoo account. (only phone/sim)

Did i miss any social hub settings? Please let me know.
Please find the screen shot of my wave attached herewith.

Also i could not see gtalk facility as given in samsung social hub site

Note: I bought my mobile in India and my firm is up to date

Your help is highly appreciable.

In My Accounts create new Exchange ActiveSync with the following settings:

e-mail: your gmail adress
password: password for your gmail
URL server: m.google.com
domain: empty
Use SSL: true

At next point save this new account and choose what would you like to sync (contacts). Check the way how it will be sync'ed in the case of conflict (Replace item in device). Don't forget to use Sync button bellow. Thats all.

I've set up as above, but I still can't get my contacts on my phone to my gmail account.

I have save new contacts to Exchange ActiveSync, yet my contacts does not appear in my gmail.

All my gmail contacts sync to my phone without an issue, I just can't sync the other way, does anyone else successfully sync their existing phone/sim contacts back to their gmail?

So nobody here has had any luck in syncing existing contacts on phone back to your gmail?

Why does it only work one way, even tho you have in settings in contacts to sync to gmail?

Nevermind, I'll just do it the hard way and do it manually, one contact painfully at a time :x

hi all from Argentina!,

i have one Wave S8500 since one mounth, and i can´t sync my google calendar with my cell...

Can someone tell me how i can do this? i go to "my accounts" and add one in "email for exchange", and on this page, i just can enter:

Server:
Username: my gmail username
password: my gmail pass

but when i select "next", i get one error msg: "Inicio de sesion no valido" or "not valid session" (i guess..)

thanks in advance!

Still no reply, obviously another short coming of the Bada OS, nevermind I give up on this phone, it's not worth the trouble, I'll just go iPhone until the other OS platforms catch up.

The lack of apps and other OS shortcomings have disappointed me...

From what I know, google contacts, cannot be synchronised over the air, with the google account.

It IS possible to do so, when connecting samsung wave on the computer, opening kies, and synchronise contacts with a google account (you are giving this option in the start screen of kies)

I'm afraid that's the only way i know.

hope this helps.
