After years of being an Android user, I finally bought my first iPhone. I'm having trouble and getting thoroughly confused with merging and syncing all my contacts. Please help me
start over and create the Ultimate Contacts Manager solution that doesn't require me to become a sync wizard. [more inside]

In short: how do I sync all my contacts between Mac OS X Address Book, iOS, iCloud.com, and Gmail.com? Not as short: In olden days, I used the Address Book app on my Mac to store all my contacts. Everything in there would sync to MobileMe (and by extension, iPhone, iPad and me.com) and Google (for Gmail). After iCloud was released in October, turning on contact syncing between Address Book and iCloud resulted in a message that said if iCloud contact syncing is turned on Google syncing must be turned off. Googling tells me that lots of people are having this problem, but I'm not finding a solution within all the noise. What am I missing? Any settings to change? Any software? Thanks in advance.

Would like to export my contacts from Outlook 2003 to Google apps Mail. Have tried saving CSV files and then importing, excel files then saving as CSV, but every time the email addresses are assigned to the wrong place and end up in the misc area in Google contacts...
this despite looking at the xcel spreadsheet header and seeing it properly labeled. What am i doing wrong?
