Problem connecting to Gmail Calendar and Contacts
I have set up my Gmail account to sync with a new Playbook several times now always with the same problem. My email is set up with no problem. I get the following message for the calendar and contacts. In fact the whole message follows:
Your email account was successfully added. At this time , the www.google.com/calendar/dav/my email firstname.lastname@example.org/events and google.com are unavailable and your calendar and contacts accounts cannot be added. Please try again later.
I have tried this for almost a week by deleting my gmail account and adding it back. The same problem occurs each time, and I don't think the server can be down that long.
I have tried to go directly to the website indicate and I am prompted for a user id and password. My regular gmail user id and password do not give access and I have no idea what is being asked for.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? Has anyone figured out how to solve this problem.

I have had Gmail for 17 months with just some minor glitches. However there was a posting on this Site on Sunday. It was stating something about Google making changes to the Gmail system. You should do a search on this Site regarding it. Mine has been running good in the past few days without any hitches.

Re: Problem connecting to Gmail Calendar and Contacts
I wonder if this is deliberate just like windows phone not being able to use google maps and tne only resolve was via a threat of a lawsuit ( I believe ) from microsoft.
seems odd that this happens just before the bb10 launch
