Need to be able to use and sinc Google calendar, I can not get enhanced google email plug in for some reason

I finally got a gmail account and have tried to create a calendar for my family using google calendar.  The calendar appears on my Torch 9810 but will not sinc with google calendar.  I keep reading that I need enhanced google mail plug in but can not find where to get this plug in.  I am not tech savy, so any help would be appreciated.  I am a long time Blackberry customer (15 years) and in the almost 2 years of having the Torch, I am ready to huck it out the window and give up.  I loved my Bold, the Torch does not compare in my ease of use.

Thank you for your help.

Re: Need to be able to use and sinc Google calendar, I can not get enhanced google email plug in for some reason

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

From what I understand, Google discontinued support for the Enhanced PlugIn as well as many other things...but that's a change that Google made, not BlackBerry. Further, via the available OTA sync capability for Google Calendar, only the primary calendar can be synchronized...no others.

So, I'm a bit unclear about your specifics...it sounds like you created (on Google) a sub-calendar for "family", and somehow got that to appear on your BB, but cannot get it to sync OTA with Google. But all of that sounds contradictory to what I understand...in that you should not have been able to get that sub-calendar to appear on your BB at all since Google only supports the primary calendar.

So some further details about all of that will likely help greatly in understanding, and hopefully then providing you with useful guidance.

Thanks and let us know!
