    Hey,
    just got my first iphone and trying to find a good solution to keep ipad, iphone and pc synced with calendar, contact and mails. I registered for the Mobileme Trial period and it took me 10 sec to set things up and get going.

    Today I tried out gmail since that is free but I'm stuck. I setup the gmail as exchange email like shown in the tutorial. Also got my contacts synced but the calendar is not working like I want. I'm only able to display 1 calendar on my phone though I setup a few different (work, family, friends,...) online. On my iphone I can only see the calendar named myemailadress@gmail.com

    Is there a way to display the others too? In MobileMe I just had to create a new one and it was synced with my iphone that's it.

    I wanted to avoid to pay for MobileMe but so far it worked way better for me. For example finding a way to get the contacts on my iphone to upload to gmail took me like 40 mins....

    On the iPhone:

    Open Safari
    Go to http://m.google.com/sync
    Sign-in
    Click on your iPhone in the list
    Check the box for the calendars you want to display.

    Bump.

    Sorry to steal this thread, but I didn't want to create a new one since you kind of solved your problem.

    Do you mind telling how you solved it ? When I use the m.google.com/sync thing navigating to the Calendar app, and checking my Calendars, my "native" calendar still just shows 1 Calendar (the name@gmail.com).

    Thanks in advance.
