Last week i exported all contacts from my macbook to my gmail-account to have all my contacts at one place (gmail). Everything worked fine, i had all my contacts there so i decided to delete all contacts on my mac and my iphone and set up the iphone to synchronize contacts with gmail (i already had my mailaccount linked, so this was just setting a checkbox for "contacts").
some of my contacts have a lot of datasets. my best friend, for example, has:
- 6 mail-addresses (work, other work, gmail, gmx, yahoo and msn)*
- 2 post-addresses (homeland and the place he studies)
- 5 phone-numbers (work, landline for both post adresses, 2 mobile-phone numbers)
- 3 Homepages (facebook-profile, google+-profile, his blog)
I know this is some kind of extreme example, but there are some more that have 2 post address or more than 3 phone-numbers...
When synchronizing my contacts to the iphone, those "big" contacts don't get there completely. lets take the above axample again. on my iphone this contact only has:
- 3 mail-addresses
- 1 post address
- 4 phone-numbers
- 1 homepage
is there any way i could change this behaviour to get the complete data synchronized? has anybody else had the same problems and knows the solution? i don't think this problem is caused by a restriction of the iphone, as i can manually add as much datasets as i want to (so theres no only-1-post-adress-per-contact-limit or something like that).
- i already tried to set up all that gmail-sync-stuff from scratch without success
- i don't have problems with synchronizing other data like mails or calendar-data
- i don't have contact on my macbook anymore (no synced and no directly maintained), so this is left out from the question (i just mentioned it to clearify how i got my contacts to gmail)
If you need any more information to answer this, please don't hesitate to ask. I could provide screenshots as soon as i'm at home if this is neccessary.
*i know, having 6 mail-adresses sounds crazy...
