    Ok, having a bit of some trouble that I can't quite wrap my head around. I have my iPhone setup with Google via Exchange, does contacts and the whole bit. There are many duplicate contacts on my iphone however, cleaning these up in google contacts does nothing...

    Then my local address book on my mac, does not seem to be syncing with google contacts like I have it setup in the preferences. I added a new name yesterday for example and its not in there...

    So it appears that my google contacts and my contacts on my iPhone are note quite in sync like I thought, no idea what my address books deal is however...

    Can someone shed some light on this? Thanks much!
