Re: Clarification with Google Sync and Gmail account

Hello,

 

Currently, the BIS system provides for the wireless synchronization of Calendar and Contacts with Google, with no need to synchronize via USB tether via the Desktop Software. So, if you have activated this new BIS feature AND also have some other channel for loading that information to your BB, that would indeed result in duplication. You will need to shut one or the other off and just have one channel for synchronizing that data.

 

Good luck!
