    I am a gmail user, use google calendars (and shared google calendars with wife), and my contacts are all in gmail. What is the ideal setup for me on iPhone?

    Currently I have Gmail setup for mail. And set up google (ms exchange) for contact calendar and reminders. Do I want to be using caldav at all?

    Setup the whole thing through Exchange. Seamless.

    If I do email through exchange, doesn't that present problems for the mail app, or mail to forms in safari?

    Nope. It works like any other account.

    The only downside is that you can't "star" messages by flagging them (but you can still star them by moving them into the "starred folder"). To me the benefits of push (via Exchange) outweigh the ability to star (via Imap).
