    I don't do Android myself :) but I have been told "PhoneCopy" is an app available for BOTH platforms that transfers Contacts etc. seamlessly cross platform via the cloud. I suggest you look into that...

    Hope that helps.

    It def sync'd my google contacts immediately-all thirty of them Works great...but how do I get the 200 names, addressees and numbers off my Droid X into my google account? These addresses live on my work pc, Outlook express.

    Is it possible to sync contacts from my Droid X to my iTunes or iPad? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Set up an exchange account on your Ipad using Google as the server. Goggle site has the instructions.

    I can send and receive email from my school district servers onto my iPad. But phone contacts are a completely separate issue, yes?

    I will look on the google site. This is stretching my brain, as most of this is above my pay grade...:D

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Don't you just load the same app onto your DroidX from the Android Store? As I say, I'm not an android guy, but...

    I thought loading the same app onto the phone would help, but in doing a market search, I cannot find "PhoneCopy."

    Any other suggestions?

    I did set up google sync on my work computer, but I don't think its working. When I configured the iPad I went to settings and followed the directions and the addresses I had that were already google based synced easily....

    cheers,

    ok, still unable to migrate phone contacts from my Droid to my iPad2. These are the same contacts that live in my outlook express on my work PC.

    Anybody have any luck doing this?

    Cheers,
    Steve
