    Subject line pretty much explains it. I always heard that using the sync contacts feature of the BIS email setup didn't seem to work too well and that ppl should use the google sync app

    Well,with BIS updated, I'm wondering if we shoiuld reconsider. Anyone who's tried either or both want to share the experience? I know I have had zero probs with contacts and google sync, but the calendar is another issue. I can't pin the blame to either RIM or the google sync app yet, but I'm willing to be done with calendar syncing altogether if the BIS contact sync works for gmail

    After this weekends BIS upgrade, my Google contacts were not syncing any longer via BIS. Removed my gmail account from BIS...re-added..still no go.
    Bit the bullet and went back to Google Sync (was already using it for calendars)
    Took a little while do to clean-up (appx 30 dupes out of 230 were created). Staying with Google Sync...until RIM/BIS gets act together.

    ugh it's so annoying. for the life of me I don't think I will ever figure out their crazy implementation of calendars. also, it doesn't help that I can't decide if the "parkerjarnigan@gmail.com" is a CICAL from my e-mail setup, or is created via the google sync app...

    There is a third alternative: AstraSync.

    It will sync Gmail, Google Contacts and Google Calendar directly with the Google Sync Server.

    My Google Contacts 2-way sync works perfectly with BIS 3.0. Make sure Wireless reconciliation is turned on in your Contacts options.

    How long does it take? I have set up my Gmail account on my Bold 9700, but it's been 6 hours and no contacts have sync'd to my phone yet. I do have the box checked in email options to sync contact and deleted items.
