  5. Hi Great clear video! I managed to follow all your instructions step my step but I did not get a sync button on the top tool bar? is this because I am using Mountain Lion??

  6. Thank you so much for your video because this was very helpful. I have an important question for you with hopes that you can help me. I was robbed yesterday for my iphone and have a tracking system but because my phone was used on tmobile they couldn't help me. It is a factory jail broken phone from apple, is there anything you can tell me to help me other the the fact that I locked and wiped it out. Please f you can help me let me know asap?

  7. hey nice vid. I have a problem though. I did all the steps but when it came to me syncing the contacts using the "sync now" button, the icon rotates for like 5 seconds and then does nothing. It also doesn't update my contacts when i check on google contacts online :S help?

  8. Somethings not right when I try this so Im afraid to do it.. I get a 'warning' that it will change 25% of my computer contacts…but that is impossible because just a couple days ago I exported my mac address book to Gmail. I clicked on 'details' and its showing the same exact contact information for everything its claiming it will change so now Im really worried. I think I need to just get an iPhone. Trying to sync Android with macs is causing me lots of stress – and not working right

  9. Someone told me to export my contacts to Gmail which seems to be similar but a more complicated step. if I do your step of synchronizing with Google from the Accounts tab, will it duplicate entries or is there a way to prevent that? Don't want 2 copies of everything. Also to sync on the phone, do you need to have a data connection or wifi – I don't know what Im doing wrong but sometimes it syncs and sometimes it doesnt. I need a way to sync ical with Android and keep my ical colored calendars

  10. @geekyranjit i dint get a link. can u message it in the yt inbox?

  11. @geekyranjit its 10.5.8. i san see "synchronise with exchange, yahoo and mobileme". nothing else. do i have to activate the mail application or anything like that to get this working?

  12. its really helpful. but for me the "accounts" tab in the "address book" doesnt appear. can u help me with this matter???

  13. How do you get rid of the sync icon at the top of the screen? I have switched back to my iphone and no longer use this sync feature but can't get it to go away.

  14. Thanks, your instructions were very clear and helpful. I can finally can sync my nexus s with my mac 🙂
