    Default Contacts not syncing :(

    Im using BIS, and my contacts are from my gMail account. For some reason my updated contacts are not syncing, its working fine with my iPhone and android. How do i manually force it to run a sync to update?

    Thanks in advance

    You shouldn't have to force, just check on the setup of that gmail account that you have contact sync enabled. It should happen soon.

    Not working for me either. I don't access gmail from my computer very often and recently discovered that my contacts have not been syncing for some time. How can I export contacts from blackberry to merge in gmail?

    About the exporting... If you're using Advance OS & LED you can back them up in a .csv file. GMail will take in that file.
    Watch for duplicates if sync gets working though.

    kumesb, the process of using adv led & OS to back up contacts and load them up through GMail takes about 5 minutes.

    Check Advance OS & LED: BlackBerry World - Advance OS and LED
    It has a tab where you can export your contacts to a .csv. Once you get that file, head to your GMail account (in a PC).
    In the contacts section, you can import from a .csv file; you'll just have to select the file you've created with Advance OS & LED and your contacts will be in your google account.

    Watch out for duplicates though - while the .csv will contain all contacts from your BB, you might already have them on your google account. Use the merge command in your google account (PC) to clean that up.
