Blackberry Curve 8520 not syncing gmail calendar

Hi
I can't get my gmail calendar to sync with by BB.  It is set up to sync and it used to do it but over the last few months it first stopped picking up appointments from my calendar and now it won't even send them to my gmail calendar!

help, I'm having to double enter everything!

Re: Blackberry Curve 8520 not syncing gmail calendar

Hello ecomumnl,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.

 

Thank you for your question regarding the Gmail Calendar synchronization issue you are experiencing on your BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone. 

 

Have you confirmed wireless synchronization is enabled? http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB24205

 

Which version of BlackBerry Device Software do you have installed currently as v5.0 or higher is required to use this functionality? Gmail Calendar synchronization will only synchronize the primary/default calendar. Shared calendars are not supported.

 

If this is the case, please remove and re-add the account, then test synchronization once again.

 

Let us know if this helps.

Re: Blackberry Curve 8520 not syncing gmail calendar

I tried removing and re-adding the account many times.  I doesn't work.  I've also tried several other fixes suggested on the internet and nothing works.  When I go into my calendar via the internet browser I can see appointments but not add them.  I am now considering changing my phone because I NEED my google calendar to work.  Is this a general problem with Blackberrys? There seem to be many people posting with this problem. Is there a BB model which works well with Google calendar?
