    Yup, the suspicion is that Google depreciated the old server address URL. Here is the new method:

    First, remove the existing contacts account (if it's still there), then go to your Google account and ensure 2FA is disabled and also make sure the so called "allow less secure apps" is enabled.

    If you wish to leave 2FA enabled, you can also create an app password and use the created password for step # 6.

    Now follow these instructions carefully:

    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,
    your Gmail address for username,
    and Gmail address for the email address.

    6.Enter your Gmail password for the password.

    7. For the Server Address, enter the following:

    https://www.googleapis.com/.well-known/carddav

    You might also need to sign out of Google from the browser to make this work.

    Let us know if it worked.

    That server address is not working for me. I had to take https://www.googleapis.com/carddav/v...lists/default/ instead.

    Unfortunately I'm still in the dark. I followed your instructions to the left but It didn't work for me on my BlackBerry Leap

    Doesn't work for me either. Have tried turning off 2Step verification, enabled 3rd party access too. Deleted existing accounts, yet it says 'an unexpected error has occurred' I searched for this issue on the other thread as well. Some users claim to report that it works for them. For some it's still not working. Guess we just need to keep trying until this thing works somehow. Just found my old BlackBerry Passport, using the S10+ as of now. But never felt happy. There is something about the passport.

    Thought of purchasing the Keyone, just for the sake of that physical keyboard, I can get hold of one for less than 200USD for the 'Limited Edition' with the 4GB ram. But nothing beats the passport.

    Remember to sign out of Google from the browser and any other Google service on the device.
    Also make very sure you're entering all the information correctly;

    Description - whatever you want.
    Username -your Gmail address.
    Email address - your Gmail address.
    Password - your Gmail password.
    Server address - https://www.googleapis.com/.well-known/carddav

    If you have 2FA off and 'less secure app access' turned on it should be working.

    Hmm, something may have changed then. I'll see if I can delete and re-add my contacts account with the old address when I have time/feel like it.

    I, too, encountered the same error, I had to use the new address. Thanks for providing the new address @kettcar64!
