    Google Contact Sync Appearing Now on BIS Sites


    A few weeks ago when BIS 2.8 was rolled out we learned of a new feature that would sync contacts with Google. At the time it was believed that this feature wouldn't be enabled until the official release of OS 5.0. Good news seems to be that we were wrong. The feature seems to be showing up on BIS sites now. Though it looks to be only be enabled for Verizon and AT&T users. Never the less, you still need OS 5.0 to take advantage of this new option.

    Hey Mindy, same here. I'm on Verizon and get an error if I try to check Synch Contacts and then hit save.

    Wonder if it won't allow this if you're on a BES and this is an additional account. :/

    so here is what i found out... this is straight from RIM:

    Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, this feature might not be supported.
    By default, wireless data synchronization is turned on for organizer data, such as contacts, on your BlackBerry® device. If wireless data synchronization is turned off on your device, you must turn on wireless data synchonization before you try to synchronize your Google Mail™ contacts.
    For more information about synchronization, click the Help icon on the Home screen of your device.

    1. On the Home screen of your device, click the Contacts icon.
    2. Press the Menu key.
    3. Click Options.
    4. Click your Google Mail email address.
    5. Change the Wireless Synchronization field to Yes.
    6. Press the Menu key.
    7. Click Save.

    BIS is the email setup site from blackberry... like for verizon it is:

    BlackBerry Internet Service

    this is where you manage your internet based email accts like yahoo, google, aol, etc.
