    1. Hi there.
      You should follow the "step 7" where the host address is given. The host address is "https://m.google.com/syncml" (without quotes). Type exactly what it is. Important to put "https".


  2. working fine...!!! where do i see the synced contacts on the computer/web ?

    1. hi, Varun Chandak
      As your contacts are synced with your gmail contacts, you need to log in to your Gmail account.
      There, click on Gmail (from the top left, below the google) to get Contacts from drop down menu.
      Select Contacts and you will find your Mobile contacts/My contacts there.

      I am damn sure your contacts are there. :)

    1. if our syncing is working then you have definitely made a mistake bro...!!!

    2. @ Rohan Bhangale,

      Be sure that you've given contacts as Contact Database and https://m.google.com/syncml for Host Address. Use the Data Bearer internet
      if possible.

      If it is giving the same error "Unable to open Database" then log in to your Gmail and Export (Backup) all Contacts as CSV or vCard format. After that delete them all and try the sync probosces again.

  6. I would like to sync only calendar, but report it to me a mistake in the name of the remote database. Please advice.

    1. You can't sync your calendar this way.
      You can see how to sync calendar using 3rd-party apps. Though that was written for S40 devices but they will work for your S60.

      Hope it helps.
