    Google Sync for BlackBerry: Now with contacts

    Advertisement



    Google announced that in the latest update to Google Sync for BlackBerry, they've added two-way contacts synchronization. This new functionality will enable you to sync your handheld's built-in address book with your Gmail contacts. This all happens in the background and over the air, so your information is always up to date, no matter where you are or what you're doing.

    Once you've installed Sync, all your information will be safe in your Google account. If you ever lose your phone or buy a new one, getting your address book and calendar to your new device is as easy as installing Sync. Current and new Google Sync users can try Google Sync today by visiting m.google.com/sync from their BlackBerry browser.

    Just updated and it works great. Read somewhere else to delete Gmail contacts first, which I did.

    I did a couple syncs and it drained my battery.

    Anybody else having similar issues?

    I have the original 8100, running 4.5.0.55.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I hope the update isn't mandatory. I don't know about others but GMail seems to add tons of people to contact list that I don't really want there, folks I don't need or want to have on my BB. Anyone know if we can have it sync only with folks in certain groups like "friends", etc.?

    Another problem.

    After syncing, when I select the call log, my phone hangs with a Java exception.

    I went back to options to disable contacts sync for now.

    Why does it add stuff to my contacts? If I buy a new phone or lose mine I can just load it with desktop manager so why do I need this?

    Donno about you guys, but I found that the app messes up recurring appointments.
    Removed it, and everything works fine.

    sounds great, but does this version still have the duplicate entry error as its predecessor did?

    this applies to the post above this one by RonnyN

    I just did the update and most of my contacts copied to my gmail account (did not use the contract feature of gmail). But some of mine did not copy accross. Funny thing is they are the contacts that I use the most
