ICAL and/or GMAIL

[ Edited ]

How do you synch either or both calendars? It is just not working correctly. I'm getting so frustrated and thinking going back to my previous BB 9790. Why on earth, after having wait for so many month, RIMM is not able to deliver a working OS. The phone is great but still so many issues.

Re: ICAL and/or GMAIL

Hello,

I don't know about iCal, but for me, GMail was simple...just configured into the Z10 and, within an hour, my calendar was synchronizing between the two. Nothing special to do at all. Some report that using the advanced settings on the Z10, and going the EAS route (using m.google.com for the server) to be helpful as well. But, for me, I did it just the "default" way and it worked perfectly.

I've since abandoned that, btw...I want true end-to-end (Outlook client to mobile devices) passive synchronization of both calendar and contacts. With GMail, everyone can get Outlook to Gmail synchronization for Calendar...but only paid Google Apps subscribers get the same for Contacts. So I've switched to HotMail as my conduit between Outlook and my Z10 (and many other devices, btw), and it's working quite well so far.

Good luck!

why don't you start by telling us what you have configured to get your unsuccessful result?

 

As far as I know, Google Calendar and iCAL can use the CalDAV protocol to do two-direction synchronization.

  1. get their CalDAV parameters
  2. set them up in the advanced section of the "add account" in your Z10 Hub.
  3. enjoy
