    Problem syncing Gmail contacts to iPad2

    Hi
    I wonder if you can help. I cannot seem to sync my contacts from Gmail/laptop to my iPad2.

    On the iPad in settings/mail,contacts,calenders/gmail I have no option for contacts only Mail and Notes. I have tried deleting the account and 're-installing' and does not make a difference. In my iCloud a/c I do have the option to include contacts and switching this off makes no difference.

    In itunes, when I select the iPad and then go to Info/sync with contacts it asks for my gmail account and password but does not accept it.

    I do have an iPhone and this is synced to itunes/gmail etc. Is this what is causing the problem? I have not been able to find the answer on google forums or ipad forums. The google help forum gives instructions only for iPhone and this solution does not work for the iPad.

    Would appreciate the help. Many thanks.

    You need to set the gmail account up as an exchange account. The instructions for this are the same as the iPhone. http://www.google.com/mobile/sync/

    If you want to sync or transfer your gmail contacts including groups you may have created in gmail, check out this app - it works well for me and the groups from gmail then appear as groups in your contacts on the ipad. Works with ipad and iphone:
