[HOWTO] Fine Tuning Synchronization of Google Mail, Contacts Calendar with iPhone

Google has just launched a service where you can sync your Google mail, contacts and calendar with iPhone through the use of Exchange connection. The method described on the Google’s main page will delete all contacts and calendar. However, I only want to sync my Calendar and not my Contacts. So, instead of using the automated method, I manually fine tune what I want to sync by doing the following:

  1. Go to Settings -> Mails, Contacts, Calendars
  2. Create a new Exchange account
  3. Set the information as follows
    • Email:@gmail.com
    • Username: @gmail.com
    • Password:
    • Server: m.google.com
  4. Choose which you want to sync
