Google has (finally) launched a product (service) allowing you to sync your contacts and calendar from windows mobile device with gmail equivalents.
Google Sync for Windows Mobile
If however, like me, you’re running an old window mobile 5 device, you may find yourself stumped while following the instructions. Specifically, it says –
8. Leave the Domain field empty.
Hmm, not so easy.. it’s a compulsary field!
The answer is to use m.google.com/sync for the domain 🙂
This google forum post pointed me to the answer.
Oh, one more thing, you may want to take a backup of your phone contacts/calendar first. That’s easy grab PIM backup from DotFred, it works great.

The domain needs to be –
It should then work.
