    If you are not already using exchange server try out nuevasync for syncing your google contacts and/or calendar with the iphone. Works great!!

    The choice to use Google Calender is right there in iTunes when you plug up your iPhone. Just go to the second tab, look at calender and hit the drop down...Google Calender is right there.

    If you are using Outlook on your computer you can "Google" Google Calendar Sync which you down load and install and it allows your google calendars to sync with your outlook calendar which in turn syncs to your iPhone...ALL FREE. It is a 2-way sync so what you do on one of the 3 shows on the other two.

    sync with google

    This really doesn't help and I don't think this is what the original question was about. What is really needed is a mechanism to sync. google calendars directly with the iPhone - either by google supporting activesync protocol or better would be for Apple to support CalDav on the iPhone calendar app. Having to connect your iPhone directly to a computer for syncing doesn't really work as many people want their calendars updated in real-time. Google calendars do sync directly with CalDav clients (such as the calendar app on OSX) so there is not need for downloading anything onto your computer.

    Researching into Spanning Sync, looks like a real winner. Going to migrate our small biz (4-5 of us) off of hosted Exchange and move us to Google Apps Premium + Spanning Sync. :]

    OMG... I swear this thing was .99 when it first came out. That's quite the price jump!

    Been using Spanning Sync for a while now. They keep adding great features, like Contact sync, that make it worthwhile. Save $5 using the link in my signature, and enjoy the simplicity for $20.

    Yeah I use this with Outlook/Google Calendar sync app so iphone and outlook are updated without having to plug them in to each other.

    I really want a way to sync outlook tasks to the iphone, doesnt even need to be wireless!

    I will also suggest

    It works great for Calendar and Contacts.
    Starting yesterday, they started syncing only the google "My Contacts" instead of all contacts including "Suggested Contacts."

    The only drawback is that for calendar, it combines all of your calendars into one, so you don't get different colors.

    Best of all, its free.

    here is my setup.

    I've stopped using caldav with google since it kept asking for password on my mac or some authorization.
    i use busysync. It syncs my ical to google with no issues.I use nuevasync to get it on my iphone.
    any changes made on ical is pushed instantly to gcal. nuevasyncs detects that it shows up when i open up iphone cal.
    If you make a change on google cal, busy sync has a time interval to check from 1 min to whenever for any gcal changes. So its not bad.I usually use iphone cal to set things as im out and about and when i get home its all synced.

    I will check the spanning sync pros and cons.

    Hold tight. They in the process of testing the multi-calendar (with colors), and also syncing public calendars (like Holidays). Word on the street is that they would like to get this rolled out by the end of the year.

    What's so bad about just downloading Google Mobile App for free. It has Google Calendar right on it, no need to sync anything.

    Agreed! Wireless (OTA) sync, simple and effective. And, as :)
