    Hi All,
    Normally, the way I managed my contacts on the iPhone was simply adding them as I would need, without specifying emails on the contact. I never needed to associate an email to the person, because every time I would write an email, google recognizes the contact for me.

    Now with iMessage, if I want to send a message to someone it seems like one needs to know the email (contact having an email associated with it) so it might be good to somehow sync the contacts I have in gmail to my iPhone.

    Now I've seen that there is ways to sync the contact from gmail to the iPhone, but I wanted to know if it's possible to create a group in my address book that only holds all the contacts that I have in gmail. This way I can go to that group if I want to see emails, and go to the group I have right now that holds the phones of the people I know.

    Does anybody have any suggestion on how to do this? Cheers!

    You can create a group in the address book app in lion and sync it that way.

    But it doesn't seem possible to select in the iPhone to sync gmail contacts directly to a group correct?
