GMail or MobileMe?
I think I might stop using MobileMe ever since I used Sync in a Blink. Its a great app and plus its a one time charge of $4.99. I don't have to pay $99 a year for this like MobileMe. Anyone been using Sync in a Blink on there iPhone or iPod touch? I'd like to know. I've been testing out syncing with my gmail and its really nice. I actually was able to add all of my contacts from my iPhone and MobileMe to my gmail using Sync in a Blink. I could careless about syncing my bookmarks with Safari hah. I never use Safari because its a memory hog and I'll eventually have to force quit it.

I also highly recommend MobileMe. For a quarter a day, my entire life is in sync with 'the cloud.' I have both a gmail account and a mobileme account set up on my phone, but only have the mobileme account active. that way, all of the email I send is going through the smtp.gmail server, but, I've got push notifications. I have messed around with googlesync for other devices like the blackberry, and must say that mobileme is 100% more effective and reliable.

And if you have more than one mac, like myself, it's even better.
And if you have a girlfriend who can never remember anything, it's priceless, haha
I only have the 99$ account with 1 e-mail.
I keep my MacBook, iMac, and iPhone synced together instantly, then on her iPhone, I enabled my MobileMe account as well, but just to sync iCal and FindMyiPhone. Then she just uses her Gmail as she really had no reason for push.
I'd love to have a way to sync her contacts in case she loses hers but I don't want them in mine. Is there a way to do that through groups or anything?

actually google sync is really ease to set up and there`s some video tutorials for dummies if its too complicated for you, but i`m sure you can, my 10 year old nephew did it on his own to his 3G. i have never tried mobileme, but never will either, i`m not about to flush $99 down the toilet. not even for that locate my iphone thing wich does not works as adverticed, my friend has it and it will just give him an area not a pin point location; so unless you live in a rural area where houses are miles away from each other, but if you are in the city; good luck trying to find your iphone on a area where you have 30 houses in a 1/4 mile.

how much faster can it be? i tried sending messages from all the other accounts(aol, msn, yahoo, etc) i have , and they all go in instantly; the most delay i saw was when forwarding mail from msn to gmail and then push to my phone; it took 3 seconds no lie. lol i love it. and yeah girl dont flush that $99 down the toilet; if you want? send em to me. i take paypal

I love Gmail...Have never tried MobileMe but I have 4 different emails coming into my gmail account and I have over 150 filters and 22 lables that I use to organize all of my emails and who they come from. Once I synced my iPhone with Gmail the phone now has all my labels and emails organized just like I set them up in Gmail. I no longer have 5 seperate email accounts coming into my phone. Just Gmail with all of my labels. Not sure what else MobileMe can do but for now Gmail is all I need to keep my life organized.

well mine works both ways; i dont know about how you set things up, but if i add a pic on the iPhone, it automatically updates the server too, and the same if i add them in the html app it updates the device. about the pic: the problem is that the html app only lets you put in certain size of the pic. so when it come out on the phone is really small. thats y it comes out at the top; but if you add it in the phone the iphone will let you put a higher def pic so when somebody calls you call see pic in full screen.

I have had MoblieMe now for almost 15 months. I can say that Google Sync with push e-mail does the same thing MobileMe did and for free. I like the labels and the GUI of Gmail much more then MoblieMe. MobileMe is also terribly slow when you are using the website for mail especially compared to Yahoo mail and Gmail. I will not be renewing MobileMe.
