Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

The difference in the arrows maybe model phone, operating system, or theme.

So don't worry about it.

The important this is to get the synch going!

If you need more info, please ask!

If not please take a minute to resolve the post by using the options by the Kudo's star.

Thanks!

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

It is hanging on "Starting Sync Connecting to Google"

 

It's been hanging there for about 15 minutes. We're not in business yet.

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

The thing about the arrows is that I do see them when an email comes in or goes out.

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

No. It hasn't synced. Sync fails.

What else can I tell you about the problem?

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

The fact that we have the permissions right, that you have reinstalled the program, and that your BB is functioning normally would point to an issue with Google. You can try the forums link I gave you, or you can call them.

Sorry, I wish I could help more, but I don't think it;s Blackberry related. Maybe someone else on the board has a better answer than me...I hope so Smiley Happy

Best I can do, sorry

Thanks,

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

Nobody on any board that i found had anything even close to the permissions. You're my only hope, Obi Wan.

 

I did change the premissions but had not reinstalled. now I have. I was able to log in (quickly). I saw the arrows and eveything. then a sync failed but I saw some data transfer arrows before it failed.

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

If I'm Obi Wan, the empire is TOAST Smiley Happy

 

Three parts to the problem,

1 blackberry, don't think so

2 allocation on BB don't thin so

3 setup on Google needs settings checked

 

Can you log in via PC and make sure your options for wireless sync are correct and the general calendar options are right?

I can't get in I don't have an account. I cannot find anything else in the web,

Please let me know!

Thanks,

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

Eldoctorae,

I found this on the Google mobile help group from an actual Google employee!

 

We know there have been a lot of issues and confusion surrounding
Google Sync for your BlackBerry phone. We suggest, as a starting
point, to download the latest version of Sync (version 0.4.4). This
version contains fixes to some of the most common user issues.

To download Sync, visit m.google.com/sync from your BlackBerry phone.

Once you have downloaded this most recent version, and if you are
still having problems, let us know in this thread.

 

Here is the link to the page, there are many problems with Google Sync:

 

 http://groups.google.com/group/google-sync-for-mobile/browse_thread/thread/6eab4fd61bb5bed2

 

Let me know if you can download 4.4 and if it helps.

Thanks

Re: Google Calendar Sync to Blackberry Problems

Well this continues to frustrate and confound.

 

I reviewed my permissions under options, advanced, applications, google sync. I noticed there are two different "allow" options. One is bold. The other isn't. I switched all to bold. No idea if that had any effect.

 

Checked my version of google sync. It's 4.6. Uninstalled, reset BB. checked for update. Device said that 4.4 would be installed, installed it and it says that 4.6 has now been installed.

 

Checked BB firewall. reset that too 

 

Rechecked options to make sure the bold "Allow" was still there. It was and is. Login in. Data indicating arrows flashed nice and strong.

 

Started sync. a few meager data indicaing arrows. mostly indicating incoming. then snyc failed. hit sync now again. no data indicating arrows.

 

 

AND THEN KERPOW! BaZInG! Updated. Calendars available. Checked 'em off and pulled the meetings from my groups.

 

It only pulled in some appointments from the BB, then I went and resaved a bunch of future events. That didn't get them to the Google Calendar. Tried editing one and resyncing (takes a long time to connect to Google despite registering as a full 5 bar strong cellular signal). Still no synch from BB to GCal.

 

Deleted one, added a new event as a test. Refreshed Gcal. That one synced, so ike I've read on other boards, only events entered after sync is active get synced.

I'm ok with that.

 

The BB seems to hang when the Sync program is running. I switched from automatic to manual sync.

I hope it keeps working. 

Thanks for all your help.  Where's the Kudos/solved button?
