    Hi all, I would really appreciate some help, thanks for reading.

    I recently purchased an Ipad 2, (didnt have ipad before). I added my gmail accounts to the accounts under settings. but when I open my mail, I do not have any of my contacts.

    Everytime I need to send an email, I have to open my gmail through the safari browser and my contacts will be there. but not through my mail app. Can someone please help and advice? Thanks very much

    Thanks for ur advice. I tried it, but everytime I tried to complete, it says "password incorrect". I have checked online and it seems this is a ongoing problem with ipad and exchange. Any suggestions or other options?

    No worries, it will work.

    The problem is, that the instructions are partially incorrect. At step 7, when you enter the username, just enter everything before @gmail.com. When you enter your full email address, as the guide suggests, will it give you a wrong password error, so simply remove the last bit and you're good to go.

    I just tested your instructions word for word and apart from the small adjustment needed at step 7 do they work.

    Hopefully calafair has the same success.

    thanks all

    hi guys, thanks for all your replies. I tried it again, but really no joy. For some reason it just will not accept my password. I checked it so many times its not funny. I am sure I have spelled everything right and input the correct data. Sighz. I love my ipad2, but this is a major pain. Thanks for your help though

    Connect to iTunes--> ipad --> 'Info' tab --> Tick 'Sync Contacts with' --> Choose 'Google contacts'

    Done

    Why wouldn't using the gmail account tab work there?

    Google advises to use the exchange setup, so I assumed the other option wouldn't work. But I may be thinking in triangles here.

    Anyway, here is Google's walk-through:
