problem syncing google calendars
Excuse me if this is a stupid question as I have only had my iphone for 3 days (and LOVING it!!). I am having trouble syncing multiple google calendars. I set everything up, including adding an exchange account, using my gmail addy (on the phone). When I add events via phone, it will sync to the calendar but the cal options on my phone do not show the multiple calendars on my G account. I also keep getting an error message when it asks for my exchange account password. I do not have a separate exchange account/email. Is that the problem? Any help would be appreciated as I need my cals!!!!!

At the risk of sounding really dumb , am I gonna set it up as an Exchange account when prompted on my iPad or is this something I do on the Google side.
You see I'm anticipating this because I can't get into the actual email set up on the iPad2 until Christmas Day. This iPad2 is a gift for my wife and obviously can't mess with her email until then.
Tks for your patience.

Lucky wife! First you'll want to go into the Gmail account from a desktop and make sure Exchange is enabled. Then when you go into mail accounts on the iPad and add an account, you'll want to add an Exchange account.
Here are some instructions for the iPad side: Setting up Google Sync with your iOS device - Google Mobile Help

Go here from safari on your iPhone
Then select your device and what calendars to sync
If you ever get pop ups about your password from google after being setup as exchange do a google search on how to disable capcha this is done on a comp
