    so the only way is to turn off the double step ?
    a really not advisable move for Security reason?

    In your Gmail settings in Google you have to toggle "allow less secure devices" so that the Gmail accepts the Blackberry. Then after if you want you CAN toggle it off again (In my experience)

    I know it sounds scary but it's really not.

    I do not think that turns off the double step. You still have to log in with email and password, as always

    In my experience it has not been necessary to lower your security settings. My 9900 works fine with Google Mail & Calendar using 2-step authentication i.e. I did not 'allow less secure devices' to get it working, simply used Googles app specific password feature to get things up and running.

    Addendum: I should probably add that I don't use Google for contacts on my 9900, as I've had problems setting that up and getting reliable synchronisation – possibly because I haven't changed my security settings

    Mine never worked going from the phone to google. If I made a change on the phone it would be rolled back when it synchronized.

    Was very frustrating as I use my BlackBerry as a planner as well.

    Last Christmas when I got this thing I had exhausted every other possibility for the gmail. It would ONLY work if I allowed Less secure devices and it has been fine since. You should only have to do it once.

    Something has to change in BIS, or something like that. Because on Bold there is no problem with Calendar synch in both ways. But there is a problem with lack of sync of contacts - GMail, Outlook.com, Yahoo.com - non of them work.

    BIS capability is unlikely to get any better with respect to its interactions with third party providers

    These are worth a read –



    Personally, I've given up trying to sync G-contacts to my Bold and now use the memotoo cloud service with the OneMediaHub app to manage my contacts (and notes, tasks etc.) on my 9900. I pay for that service but there is a free option with more limited capability for those who want to try before they buy.

    My main calendar and Contacts app are iCloud (Apple). But I created Google calendar and Contacts specifically to sync with my 9900 (I have a Mac desktop and cannot use desktop sync). Calendar syncs well (one consolidated calendar, but that's quite OK), but Contacts does not. When I have enough changes accumulated in Contacts (not frequent these days), I export iCloud contacts to Google, reset (wipe out) 9900 contacts and it syncs itself. You have to do this fresh every time, otherwise, the 9900 side bloats up with multiple contacts accumulated by each sync. Not an ideal way, but it's simple and works.

    Quick question related to this topic...I have my Google calendar set up on my 9900 and it works fine except for a subscribed calendar (hockey schedule) that still shows on my Google calendar on my desktop but it has never pushed to my BlackBerry. Is there a way to get that working?

    You can only sync your main Google calendar using BIS, multiple calendars are not supported.
