    I really hope my post isn't redundant; I tried searching through this massive site.

    -My (Yahoo and Gmail) email is synchronized thru the iPod
    -My (Google) calendar is synchronized thru Outlook (although full-day events won't show up. It would be great if someone know why that didn't go thru)
    -My (Google) contacts won't synchronize through iTunes or NuevaSync.

    I understand that you can back up your contacts to Outlook, but i'm looking for a way to synchronize them because I'm always making changes.

    I have a 2g and i want to avoid signing up for services like mail2web.com. I've signed up for tons of them recently.

    I'm running a 2.2 version on the ipod and the newest iTunes.

    help please

    Device:
    2G iPod touch
    when you connect your ipod touch to your computer via usb, on itunes, your ipod touch should show up as a little icon

    when you click that icon, a whole menu with tabs should pop up in itunes
    the tabs read: music, videos, apps, pictures, games, etc

    in one of those tabs (sorry i dont have itunes up right now) there will be an option to sync contacts

    i dont know if you tried that already.
    and make sure you click apply when finished so that when you next sync, the new options will be applied

    it feels so good. thank you guys, the last time i did it, it skipped the whole verification of my gmail account.
    my calendar and contacts are synchronized. NuevaSync works afterall.
