Curve 8530 - Need Help With Google Sync Calendar

I just upgraded to a new curve 8530, I had the older version of curve and google sync was the perfect platform for my email, contacts, and calendar. That was the first download I made on the new version, however I am having problems with the calendar.

 

The downloads from Google Calendar to my phone are working fine, when I enter in a new calendar date on my computer, it creates a new event directly to my phone.

 

However, when I add a new event to my phone while out and about, it does not update my computer google calendar. It's only updating one way.

 

I know there must be a simple answer here, I just can't find it. Can anyone help?

Re: Curve 8530 - Need Help With Google Sync Calendar

Interesting post as I have an 8310 which works fine with sync and am  considering upgrading!

 

I had great difficulties with sync on the 8310. In the end it came down to making sure CICAL was set to the same name as the Google account. This seemed to be set in BIS under the account name and once changed and the service book resent everything worked.

 

Might be worth a try.

 

BTW did you manage to get contacts sync to work without duplicates? I have given up as it is reported somewhere as a Goggle bug.

 

If it works the combination of BB and Google is fantastic!!

I use google sync, and my contacts don't duplicate and the calendar syncs ok as well.  You can check these settings to make sure it is set up ok.  open google sync and hit menu key and hit options. make sure all these settings are set to meet your needs. If problem persists you can try deleting app and redownloading.

 

Hope this helps

Sorry, I'm a novice here. CICAL and BIS, what exactly are those?
