    Default BIS Address Book Sync

    Is there a way to force BIS to sync my address book? I already have my GMail contacts configured through BIS, but I updated a contact on gmail yesterday and it has yet to sync the change. I am running a Storm on OS 5.0.

    I'm not sure what you are asking for. BIS doesn't always, in a native form, sync contacts.

    manage email > google > sync options and see what it says...

    I use Google Sync.... works better IMHO.+

    ================================

    and just for the record book EVERYTHING on a BB is done via BIS/BES....

    slacker, score me, facebook, twitter .... doesn't matter.... BIS/BES is the substructure that blackberries run on.

    reboot the phone if you can't log in, i had that issue too. you can either sync the calendar alone, the contacts alone, or both or neither, up to you.

    after you accept the TOS
    you scroll to the bottom of the all the way to the bottom you you'll see sync these calanders
    click on your email below that
    and you'll see all the calendars tied to yours.

    No problem, yea i've got my email, my wifes, and some friends of mine... makes things really easy for birthday parties, festivals and most importantly local Oktoberfests.


    just make sure to use your Google Account to put stuff in, or it won't show up.

    Hi,
    How do you get these shared calendars to show up in different colours on your BB calendar? I have been sharing calendars with my wife, through google sync, for over a year now and the events only show up the colour of my google calendar.

    thanks in advance,
    Lawrence

    Uh, first option is i believe there is an app to do that.

    2nd option, uh.... drawing a blank here. I know there's a way.

    Wow, this post is unhelpful so far....



    I think without the app you can't do it on new OS

    Calendar > options > select the calendar you want to change color > press the trackball/pad select the color you want

    if you and you wife are sharing one account, you cannot separate her colors from yours, you need to have two separate calendars to do that

    Just to clarify, I use my gmail account as my primary email/calendar on my blackberry. My wife uses her gmail account as her primary email/calendar on her blackberry. We both use google sync to sync blackberry to google calendar. We share our google calendars. On my google calendar it shows different colours depending on who's calendar the event comes from. When I sync back to my blackberry it only shows the colour of my gmail calendar. I have both calendars listed in google sync.

    Was wondering, am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way?

    thanks,

    Lawrence
