I’ve upgraded my device to an iPhone 5; from an iPhone 4. But it seems that Google changed the way it handles free accounts and iOS. Namely they don’t support the Exchange protocol anymore.
To remedy the mail issue, I’m not using the Gmail app as my default mail app. Under
Mail, Contacts, Calendars in preferences, I’ve set up Gmail to handle contacts. I’ve turned off contacts under iCloud. Those are the only two accounts I have set up.
Now on my phone, when I go to
Phone > Contacts I can enter a new contact but it never shows up in Gmail. I’ve waited (days) and synced with my desktop, but still can't get a contact entered into the iPhone to sync with Gmail.
Am I missing a step? Or do I need to change my settings some how to get this to work?
