Gmail Contacts Not Showing as a choice in Add Account
Hi - I have an unlocked HTM fablet. I'm trying to obtain contacts from my gmail account thru a contact widget that came with it. when I am prompted to Add Account the step it wants is to add an exchange account (which doesn't work when I try to use gmail credentials). I would expect a list of accounts like gmail or google to come up.
Can anyone give me help?
Thanks so much!
Re: Gmail Contacts Not Showing as a choice in Add Account
Welcome to Android Central! Is your Google account already associated with the device? If so, it should be syncing your Google Contacts to the device's People app anyway. The widget presumably uses that contact database. Go to Settings>Accounts--do you see a Google account there? Tap it, and then tap your Gmail address. Now look at the various Google services, and make sure Contacts is checked.
