    Hello Vikingx51,



    The following article details the process of setting your iPhone up to sync with Google Contacts.


    1. Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account > Other > Add CardDav Account.
    2. Enter the following information in the fields:
      • Server: google.com
      • User Name: Enter your full Google email address
      • Password: Your Google account password
    3. Select Next at the top of the screen to complete the setup.

    After you have completed the setup, open the Contacts app on your device. Syncing should begin automatically.

    Thank you. I did all this and it went to sync up.It looked like it would work but It never synced - instead it told me it could not sign in because the SSL wasn't working. ( I am paraphrasing here) .  Any  other ideas?
