Same here. Now contacts syncing is a whole nother issue. That has never worked quite right or the way I want.

Like I said, I've not used Google Sync (nor PocketMac) but because Mark/Space cuts corners with their code, some contact fields on the BlackBerry aren't synced & you lose data. Worse yet, they don't tell you which fields map together. Ug! Hurry up RIM & make it good.

Birthdays that you have in your BB get messed up when going to google and birthdays in google get messed up going to the BB. List goes on and on with little mess ups.

However, I'll test it for the next month or so, using Google to remind me as opposed to having it set on my phone and I'll see how that works out. Anyway, my rant is coming to a close, but, while google sync DOES work, I feel like it can improve a whole helluvah lot.
