Google Apps Contacts/Calendar BIS Sync

[ Edited ]

I've setup two separate Google Apps accounts on my phone through the Email Setup Application, and email works flawlessly.

 

However I also use Google Calendar, is there anyway I can use BIS to sync Calendars?  The options under "Syncronization" is only "Deleted Items"...contacts and calendar are nowhere to found like they are with regular gmail users.

 

I'd use the standalone Google Sync application, however that will only let me login to one account at a time.  If I can do it through BIS, I can check it off for both accounts and have both calendars running.

 

Let me know, thanks.

 

In short, can Google Apps users sync Google Calendar via BIS?

 

EDIT: I have a Bold 9700 running OS 6.

Re: Google Apps Contacts/Calendar BIS Sync

This thread is a bit old...but did you get this resolved?

I have exact same issue - my company uses Google Apps for email, and when I set up account on my BB it does not give the option to sync calendar (only deleted items).

Re: Google Apps Contacts/Calendar BIS Sync

While I no longer use BlackBerry, I do remember getting past this issue.

 

While I don't remember the exact details of how I was doing it before (when it wasn't working), I do remember deleting the GApps account on my phone completely.

 

Then adding it again, but telling the BlackBerry it was a GMail account instead.  I chose 'GMail', but it still let me enter in my Google Apps domain just fine.

 

Once I did this, Contacts and Calendar synced just fine.

 

Hopefully that helps, :smileywink:.
