Gmail not very functional??
I'm absolutely sure I'm missing something....but, why can't I create a phone contact directly from gmail? I can do this out of the mail app, but not the gmail app. This and the extremely round about way of copying text from the gmail app makes me wonder if I'm doing something wrong or is there a flaw in the integration of what you'd think would be inherent functionality in a google OS?
Should I just set up my gmail as another email account in the mail app?
I'm sure this has been discussed, but it just seems there is something missing here.

I think it is because you are able to set up a Google contact inside of the phones contacts. If you go to people, tap add contact, the section under contact type can be changed from exchange, Google, or phone. I just add them as a Google contact everytime and it will sync with Google pretty quickly. I think there is a way to manually sync it as well but not sure exactly how.

Here's a question I would love to have an answer to. I have a distribution list set up in Gmail. However, if I want to actually send an email to the group, I have to select them from the mail widget, not the gmail. I have a pop email and an exchange set up in mail. I also have me gmail set up under the gmail widget. So, I can't send a group email from gmail, just the pop or exchange account. Adding my gmail into the mail is annoying because I get duplicate emails...one in mail, and one in the gmail widget. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Although I like the gmail app, I would like to just disable it and keep all three emails in the mail widget. Thanks.
