    But having followed all the steps, when I click on “Synchronise”, the system appears to make a connection to the Google server, but I then get a message that reads: “Unable to open database”.
    Please help!

  3. Put the REMOTE DATABASE as ‘contacts’ will work.It works for me

    I tried the sync on E63. it was working just fine until i started getting the error “Invalid Host Address” . Thy sync just begins to process and immdly i get the above error message. This was the same setting that worked earlier. What could be the problem ?

    • Hari says:

      Try this one

      “The solution was found strangely — I tried to sync over GPRS connection and, voila, everything synced. Looking through the router setup I found that there was no default gateway for devices connected over Wi-Fi and IP assigned using DHCP (all the home devices use static addresses) so that Nokia E65 was not getting the gateway I suppose to get to the Google’s side.”

      First, make sure the setting is correct. Second, how many contacts do you have? I am not sure if there are a lot of contacts, error may occur.

    Hi all, If u r getting “invalid Host Address” error, which is not been solved even after try other connections like gprs, wifi or any, and even not worked after changing “contacts” to “Contacts” and than again to “contacts”, than u can try this, move all ur contacts either to PC Suite or to memory card, than delete all and than sync with gmail, and than bring back ur contacts from backup. It worked for me….

  25. Deepak says:

    I didn’t find the option “Database in phone” to put “C:Contacts.cdb”

    Thanks a dozen tons !! life become easy with your solution. It worked like a charm.
    ( 50 contacts per sync) (option not available in phone but i guess its optional as without it also it worked “Database in phone” to put “C:Contacts.cdb” )

  29. HakunaMatata says:

    1) I don’t get the local database field; 2) I am getting “invalid username or password” error.
