Kickass.. thank u bro :)
Worked great. Thanks so much.
The correct way to go about it is open Add account Click on Other Click on Add cardDAV account Under server type in Username is ur google email Ur password Click next Open Contacts on ur device and it should start sync in a bit.
Where do I find Advanced Settings? I\'m having absolutely no luck with Exchange. It asks for another password that I don\'t know after I save all the info.
This process fails numerous times on ipad 4. Not sure the software is any different but can you suggest another way to get my google contacts into my ipad? I\'m having no luck.
Thank you :) very useful information!
Thank you very much. It works for ipad retina display
After doing all of this I get a message that says, \"Cannot get mail connection to the server failed\"!
PERFECT! Any side effects? issit a 2 way sync?
Thank you Güneş Aydın ! Been trying all day with no luck until found your post. Thank you again !
