    Ben xfg posted a solution yesterday - there is a new server address, that is why the few months old threads didn't help me these days.
    Google has changed the server address, and the correct one (with which I finally got back into syncing Google contacts on my Passport) is:
    https://www.googleapis.com/carddav/v...lists/default/
    I was going nuts till this post

    I THINK THIS WILL HELP EVERYONE

    Thanks much @vrodic You made my day

    Okay I have sorted the issue.
    Many people have been trying and facing the issue. I was facing exactly the same even after following the instructions. May be someone missed it or I didnt read that. You have to first add your account normally, but do not select contacts, just email and calendar. Let it add.
    then go to again add account>advanced>carddav.
    Then give your details and use the same server address as mentioned "https://www.googleapis.com/.well-known/carddav".

    After weeks of struggle and losing the hopes entirely. I can confirm it works now.

    as soon as you will add CardDav, the contacts syncing will also add in the previously added account where we did not selected "contacts to sync".

    in the google settings, I had removed Blackberry hub + services from third party access and then again added it while adding the account. And also allowed access to less secure apps. Now my contacts are syncing.

    Thanks people.
    Hello! I'm going to try your method. My struggle is real! I have tried methods like this for a few days now and still dealing with errors. Your method should work for my Q10 right? Thanks!

    But you will need to use the following address for it to work;

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

    Just remember to replace the "myname@gmail.com" with your Gmail address.

    Just make sure you have "less secure app access" turned ON. If you have two factor verification enabled you will need to use an app password, also try signing out of Google from your browser if it still doesn't work.

    You need to use the CardDAV option, not CalDAV.

    Very odd error indeed. Let me take a look at this Felix. I'll get back to you as soon as I know more.
    @Ben xfg, thanks for the handoff!

    Hey Felix,

    Have you fully deleted your Gmail CardDAV account, or even the Gmail account as a whole, from your BB10 device? RPC transactions are basically interactions between your device and the remote server, and so if it's saying there's an RPC error it's likely confused about the connectivity protocols. If you haven't done that, can you try removing the account entirely then re-adding it using the steps outlined above and the correct URL?

    As a gentle reminder you'll want to de-select contacts when re-adding your Gmail account and add them separately afterwards in order for everything to work.

    That's actually progress Felix, as that error is more in line with the errors people have received previously. I'd suggest adding e-mail and calendar first, but it should not matter.

    I've gone ahead and pasted the entire process back in here for you, wtih the appropriate URL. Assuming you have less-secure app access enabled and are signed out of Google on your device, this should work, but if it does not let me know and we'll keep digging at it.

    Go to Accounts.

    Select Add Account.

    Select Advanced at the bottom of the screen.

    Tap CardDav.

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

    6.Enter your Gmail password for the password.



    For the Server Address, enter the following:

    www.googleapis.com/carddav/v1/principals/youremailaddress@gmail.com/lists/default/


    Please hover your mouse over the link to get the full URL and/or click it so it will open in a new tab, as Crackberry cuts off the full version in posts.

    (Replace youremailaddress@gmail.com with your actual Gmail address of course.)

    Hello from the author of articles of the Russian-speaking community Blackberry.
    The full instruction looks like this:
    • Delete the Gmail account from the phone, if there is one (it is desirable to do the item, but you can try without deleting it, maybe it will work out),
    • Log out of your Google account in all browsers on your device and on your PC, log out of your Google account in installed applications, if any,
    • Go from the regular Blackberry browser to My Account Google - "Security" tab:
      • "Login to account using phone" - "off",
      • "Two-step authentication" - "off",
      • Unreliable apps that have account access - incl. (to open access),

      If the Blackberry Hub+ permission to use the account has already been given in the list of unreliable applications, it must be removed, and then again allowed access to unreliable applications.
    • "Phone settings" - "Accounts" - "Add account" - "Advanced" - "CardDav" - Username and email address - specify the same, enter the password, specify the server address:
      Code:
      https://www.googleapis.com/carddav/v1/principals/userEmail/lists/default/
      where "userEmail" is your full login email account with the required contacts for synchronization, format "***@gmail.com" - "Done".


    The error "an unexpected problem occurred, some feature may not be working correctly" arises precisely because the Hub + service is already connected to the Google service.

    Hi Xcrazy,

    Thanks for contributing this. However, a few questions for you:

    1. Are you sure that turning "login to account using phone" off is the right setting here? That would seem to be required for any phone to connect to Google resources.

    2. The URL you mentioned is an older URL that seems to no longer work for many people (including me, and I was the one who originally found it and posted it here on Crackberry). Are you saying that that URL is working for you?

    Thanks,
    TT

    TrumperTiger,
    Yes, this is an old scheme, but it works.
    I follow the instructions of google - https://developers.google.com/contacts/carddav/ - the "Resources" tab. 100% tested and working scheme.

    All points of the instruction is important to do.

    After the first time you connect your gmail account to Blackberry, the Blackberry Hub+ binding is saved on the gmail server. After that - CardDav is unavailable, because he also refers to the Blackberry Hub+, which is activated only for email. To bind CardDav — you need to remove the Blackberry Hub+ binding and activate it for CardDav — then both email and contacts will work.
    If the binding is not removed, an error will occur when CardDav is added.

    If you want, I can make a video on setting up an account.

    That's okay X. I misread your initial URL and it is indeed the current functioning one, so we're all good there. I may PM you however about videos and some other items; feel free to PM me as well. You seem like a techy fellow but just in case: to PM you click on the username in orange and then select PM to the right of Posts in the bubble that comes up.

    Thanks Hp. This would mean that the full URL, for the record, is:

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

    where "myname@gmail.com" is your actual Gmail address.
    Is there a need for me to actually go and do all the steps to update my URL or can just remove the old one and put the new one and click save?
