    Did the server field appear? You just need to enter m.google.com into it and the next should become available.

    So your saying you've transferred your current contacts on the ipad manually to your gmail? You may want to be careful then as you may end up with duplicates.

    there are no duplicates. the gmail entries are all just email addresses, while my contact entries are all phone numbers

    the worst i got is having a separate entry for the email address and phone numbers of a single person... but i can live with that.

    btw, i haven't installed itunes to my desktop computer (windows). i'm in danger of losing all my contacts if the ipad 'falls in the pool'...

    i'll try importing the csv file to gmail (reverse of what i've done earlier).

    ......

    i'm thinking, i already set up my MAIL to gmail. will setting the same email address to microsoft exchange cause the "freeze"?

    All your contacts are in gmail now aren't they? So you won't lose them if your ipad falls in the pool

    How have you got the gmail currently setup? I wouldn't expect it to cause the problem you describe but you never know. Did you check that the server field appeared and you didn't notice it? You may not get the certificate is invalid message mentioned in 9a.

    Do you mean delete your gmail account on your iPad, because you've now set it up as an exchange account?

    Otherwise I don't understand the question.

    yes, you understood it correctly. can i take out the google mail account in my ipad in favor of microsoft exchange?

    btw, in my contacts list, there are cases where i now have at least four sets for the same email address...

    also, upon checking gmail at my desktop, the phone contactsthat i added in my ipad are not yet reflected. are entries with phone numbers not stored in gmail?

    I warned you you might get duplicates. I can't remember now if it will copy your iPad contacts into gmail or just leave them on the iPad.

    You shouldn't have a problem getting rid of your gmail account on your iPad now. Btw make sure you turn of syncing contacts in iTunes when you next connect your iPad to your pc otherwise you'll get even more duplicates.
