Google mail seemed much easier for contacts since contacts are personal and not official. So I chose to sync contacts
]on personal mail rather than official mail.

Todays's phones anyway support sync'ing of multiple mail accounts.
I have an Android on which now I sync office mail and calender which is on outlook ( but no contacts. )

On my personal gmail, I sync mail, calendar and contacts.

Sorry, I should have mentioned it more clearly. By outlook I meant the msn/hotmail account. My hotmail account is with outlook.com domain

Sorry did not realize that!
Outlook for me was always a default exchange server for me.

iphone 5 16gb for 45,500/-
iphone 5 32 gb for 50,500/-
iphone 5 64 gb for 54,500/-

Does this provide the hint at the iPhone 5 official pricing?

i noticed a weird thing after the iOS 6 upgrade; this is related to the in-built mail application. so, i've my Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail and Exchange servers configured on my phone. when i'm in my Gmail or Yahoo account and i'm reading through emails, the Delete icon at the bottom is a new one:

however, for Exchange and Hotmail, the icon is still the old one:

any idea why this might be? is it that the devs@apple forgot about copy-pasting the code for the Exchange module?

Here's the explanation:

"Archive or Delete Messages in Mail:

A common Mail complaint among Gmail users has long been the need to choose between archiving and deleting a message. iOS just never provided a way to choose on the fly. Now you can. To do this, open a message, tap and hold the Archive button, and make your choice. The unfortunate reality is that you have to actually open the message to do this. You can't tap and hold the Archive button in list view to get these options. That said, it's a welcome improvement. We still prefer Sparrow, though."

i went to Imagine to get a case for my iP4 and there i inquired about the iP5 launch; Nov 2nd is the launch at UB City office and it will be available in stores on Nov 3rd.

they're also accepting advance payments for the iP5.

btw, the price mentioned above is the final pricing it seems.
