      I thought they already searched for emails from their server. I've never really tried it so I could be wrong. No I don't think it's necessary for them to create their own app

      Sounds like a user error there. You need to decide how you want to sync your contacts then set your phone to match that. Google sync is done wirelessly. iTunes can currently sync to windows contacts, outlook, etc. You can't enter contacts online and expect itunes to sync it for you. iCloud is their new service that will come out this fall that takes care of contacts through iCloud.

      I'm also using google for cal/email/contacts. I have no reason to switch those services over to iCloud so it'd have to be extremely impressive for me to make the switch. The other iCloud services are a plus though, like photo stream and wireless backup.

      Biggest problem with setting up Gmail as Exchange is that it archives deleted messages instead of deleting them. The result is the mailbox filling up quickly and no easy way to identify archived email to delete later. I use Exchange for the contacts and calendars, but regular setup for email.

      Archiving of emails is actually a feature, you can disable it via the Settings app (Settings app -> Mail, Contacts, Calendar -> Select the appropriate account -> Archive Messages toggle.

      Just tried the search on server and it returned nothing. I am guessing it only searches the inbox which doesn't have a lot of messages in my case and those are usually already on the phone. It want to be able to search all archived messages and it's not doing that. Also I see nowhere to do the "send email as" option. I have always wanted that as I juggle many email address and have always accepted that when I sent messages from my phone they have to go out from my main address whether I use the iphone built-in mail or the google web app.

      worked for me before itunes 10 and ios 4.0. if i changed something in my gmail/google contacts. it would sync it to my phone via itunes and vice versa. yes i know you can sync via exchange, however it is limited to how many numbers per contact it has and info as well.
