So yesterday I officially switched my work mail to Gmail. I was tired of putting up with Entourage and even more frustrated with my inability to share my work calendar with my wife who manages her/our calendar with Google Calendar. Using Gmail as a catch all account is taking a little bit of an adjustment, but I really like it so far. I need to develop a system with labels and filters, otherwise I think I might drown.
Now that I’m using Gmail, my only calendar is my Google Calendar. However, I wanted to make sure that the calendar on my iPhone syncs with Google. I learned how to do this when I gave my wife my iPod touch.
Go to NuevaSync and create a free account. NuevaSync is an online service that will connect your Google accounts with your iPhone (or other phones as well) by pretending to be an exchange server. It’s really easy to set up and it’s completely free. Within a few minutes, my calendar and contacts were synced. Push email (through Gmail) and the ability to sync up to 50 calendars is available at a very low price as well. I already bring in my Gmail into my iPhone, so I didn’t see the need to pay for anything.
So, if you use Google Calendar and would prefer to sync your iPhone (or several other smart phones for that matter) to this calendar, check out NuevaSync.

Does Google already allow you to setup Google calendars in your iPhone? I have my google email, calendar, and contacts all setup with my iPhone already…
What am I missing?

Go to m.google.com/sync on your iPhone. It’s all there. No extra software or web app needed.
Since your church address is being forwarded to your gmail account, you can use a filter to automatically label any email sent to your church address. It makes those emails easier to spot.
You can also setup Gmail to send emails from any account Gmail is set up to receive. When you reply to emails sent to your church address, it will automatically send from that address. No one will ever know you’re using Gmail.
