Question Email - Gmail syncing of contacts?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a gmail account setup on my BB (9700)... everything works great... when it set up for the first time, it even pulled it all my contacts from gmail - that was great!

I've got contacts checked as an option to sync in the email settings panel for my gmail account.

Question is, for updating contacts from the BB back to Gmail (on the server side), do I need to separately have Gmail Sync set to sync contacts (I use it to sync calendar events right now, not contacts - thinking I already have contacts set to sync in my gmail email settings)....

Does the built in email app, setup for gmail, only sync gmail contacts one way? ie. from server to BB? If I go in the contacts panel, then options, my gmail account is set to 'Yes' for wireless synchronization...

I just recently added a new contact to my BB, but it's not showing in Gmail when I log in via a computer... It's certainly not instantly updating, but I'm not even sure it will update at all...

Is having Google Sync turned on for contacts the only way to have syncing go from the BB back to the Gmail server?
