    So does this basically transfer all your email contacts from your gmail account to your iPhone?

    Yes, and also from your iPhone to your Gmail account.

    Does it add the email addresses to your iPhones contact list or do the email addresses get saved elsewhere?

    Is it possiable to screw things up and lose all your addresses and contacts?

    It doesnt add email addresses, at the moment it doesn't support mail, only contacts and calender.Google has instructions for backing up contacts.

    What I should have said was that google doesnt support email sync at the moment. When you set up gmail sync you back up iphone contacts in gmail. When the gmail account sync is set up on the iphone the contacts, including email addresses, are synced to contacts on the iphone.

    However as far a s I can tell , subsequent email addresses are not synced - ie if you send a new email that address is not added to contacts :confused:
