    Hi, have just gotten a S3 and I have 3 questions.

    1) How do I sync my iMac contacts and calendars to my S3?
    2) I do have iPad 2. Can they work seamlessly too?
    3) Can I sync my iTunes contents to my S3?

    1 & 2
    I'm no expert, but you can use Google to sync address book and calendars on your iMac and iPad2
    Set up Google sync on your S3, so all three use Google as the hub to sync rather than your imac.

    I think you can just drag and drop from itunes window straight to the S3 device, yes?
    Same as any document as far as I know.
    Playlists might be a bit of a pain though.

    For 1& 2, I would suggest use "Contacts Sync for Google GMail" to export them into GMail, and then the native google/android sync will keep them in step on your G3, and you can sync them gmail to mac/ipad afterwards. I've been using it a couple of weeks, it works flawlessly

    I think you can google sync natively without paying for an app, but it wont sync pictures, and wont be good at handling conflict, which the app seems to do well. The app is a few dollars.
