Gmail contacts wireless sync

I have just bought a blackberry torch and on blackberry setup site I have created a new mail account with gmail.


during gmail setup I have chosen to sync contacts and calendar. 

I have received the configuration data, but nothing happens.


no appointment on the phone, no contact.


I have a doubt: does this work on bis?!?

Re: Gmail contacts wireless sync

a) have you setup your gmail calendar on the website - this is not automatically done when you register an account and is seperate from email. Took me a few hours to work this one out when I set mine up!


b) do you have any contacts in your gmail account to sync?


b) have you completed the step on the on the phone? If you setup the account on the web end of BIS you also need to log into the email setup app on the phone and re-enter your gmail password to complete the link and sync your calendar and contacts.
