    This just now worked for me to install my contacts from my Google accounts. I first went into my Google Account and turned on "Less secure app access" .

    Then followed these steps. It was never clear where you had to insert your Google email address in the server address.

    The solution which works at the moment is:

    1. Go to Accounts.

    2. Select Add Account.

    3. Select Advanced at the bottom of the screen.

    4. Tap CardDav.

    5. Enter whatever you like for a description, and your Gmail e-mail address for username and e-mail address. Enter your Gmail password for the password.

    6. For the Server Address, enter the following:

    https://www.googleapis.com/carddav/v.../lists/default

    Hit Done and your contacts should be there.

    Better to use an app-specific password rather than allowing less secure apps.

    What are the steps to do that? If a password is required where would it be entered?

    Thanks

    It is created on the server-side. Search "app-specific google password".

    You enter it when setting up your account instead of using your Google master password.

    Go to your Google account and enable two step verification, then by 'App Passwords' you create a password for 'contacts on my BlackBerry' (or something like that) . Enter this password instead of your Google Account password when adding the contacts account to your device.
    That way you can keep "Less secure app access" off.
