    Download the Google App! Download Google Calendar Sync.
    Just set those two up and you should be good!
    Make sure to enable IMAP on your gmail account.

    I was able to set up my gmail acct on the Storm but I'm embarassed to say that I am confused on where to find the google calendar sync. Do I do something on my computer first or on the Storm? Do I have to use the USB cable each time to sync the calendar once it's set up or is there a setting to have it auto sync each time I add a new entry?

    The calendar sync is a huge thing for me and I am very eager to hear how to set it up. This grandma needs real simple steps to getting it going. Thanks again for your help.

    Google Mobile - Sync

    That is for calendar sync.

    For email there should be a "E-Mail Settings" icon on your phone. Add gmail email there. This is also called BIS.

    And yes, google sync for calendar is OTA (over the air) so no need to cable sync with your pc.

    Hey cool, thanks for the idea, sometimes I just browse the forum looking for something cool I didn't know about.

    This is what I found today.

    Works great on my Curve 8330.

    I installed google sync on my storm. It will only sync calendar information one-way from google to the BB, even all new forward events. One thing I noticed that in calendar the option "wireless sync" is grayed out.

    Any ideas to get two-way sync?

    Also, my gmail is configured for imap, and this sync works great.

    After deleting and re-installing google sync, it seems to be working now.

    hi there

    I have really problems with the sync...

    the problem is that this is just a one-way sync for me...
    I have installed and reinstalled the sync software 3 times now but g-calendar doesn't get any entries from my blackberry storm...

    my bb-storm gets entries but the other way it doesn't work...any ideas?

    thx for your answers!
