    I'm stuck, can't figure this issue out. Hoping someone has an idea. I think it's on gmails end, so hoping someone might know a trick.
    I was trying to keep my contacts synced, someone suggested using gmail. I did that, they synced, but two things happened. 1) not all synced 2) many were blank, just the name, no phone, no email. So then, I deleted all the gmail contacts, went through all my phone contacts manually and made sure all the data was there in the right place. Now, none sync to gmail. Waited 24 hours and still zero. Here are screen shots of how the phone is set, and my gmail page showing zero contacts. Any ideas?

    in the mail sync section it does say imap.gmail.com, and emails sync. It's just the contacts that now won't upload to the gmail account. I was hoping, all would upload. If I go into each account
    I have
    304 listed under my PC's BB link
    0 in gmail
    10 in twitter
    41 in linkedin
    457 in 'all contacts'

    I'm going to try and removing the gmail info, then reloading it on my bb

    When you add the account as imap, you have options to have contacts and calendar sync. Do you see that? Try choosing that. I do this on my phone.

    Like the photo above? The righthand image is showing contact sync, is that what you mean?

    ah ha, here's a clue. I just added a fake contact into my Z30 in the gmail contacts section, it instantly showed up on the gmail website. so it 'can' sync up to gmail, it's just all the other contacts don't want to for some reason.
    Also, I manually added a contact on the gmail website and so far it hasn't synced 'down' to my Z30,

    It's like I need to set my 'all contacts' to sync to up to gmail, and also set my phone to sync back down from gmail.

    Just to test, I fired up my android phone, set its contacts for gmail and pow, instantly my gmail was populated with all it's contacts. I could remove or add on gmail and it shows up on phone, and visa versa. So it's definately something with the blackberry. My gmail now has 483 contacts and none of them are downloading/showing up on my z30

    OK, got it working. Reloaded it again, same settings, but this time they populated. Weird you have to do and redo stuff sometimes on the blackberry....
    thanks for the help!

    Well, turns out it almost works. If I edit a contact on Gmail, the changes do not show up on my bb. They show up instantly on my android but nada on my z30.

    Any thoughts on how to get my Z30 to update changes to contacts?
    If I add a new contact on gmail, or any edits or changes or deletes, they do not show up on my z30 unless I remove the account and reset it up[/I]

    I don't see other account settings? I looked in accounts, and under each Gmail section (mail,contacts and calander)

    Just to update, I found those caldav settings, didn't help.
    I also found that it syncs contacts only if I restart the phone. So apparently the settings are correct for the server, and apparently it 'can' sync, even though I have mail, calendar and contacts set to sync every 5 min. It won't automatically sync contacts.
