    There was a lot of talk about the Sept 11/12 upgrade of BIS to 2.8. I have not seen any comments about whether the upgrade actually happened.
    I have not noticed any differences yet and was wondering when the gmail contact sync would go live.

    Why can't You check Yourself?
    In Poland (& in Germany) we already have BIS 2.8, You can translate our news:bbnews.pl/?p=2788
    But there is not so much new: Gmail contacts sync is shown onl if you have 5.0 (but not working), Hotmail changed to POP3 (if You add new account) - that's all.

    Everyone can do this, I'm regular BIS user, like most of us

    You have to log to your operator-BIS site, and:
    1)if you have os 5, check the Gmail account options (edit it) for new option: Synchronize Contacts. If you don't have OS 5.0 on your device it won't be there (but even if you have 5.0 it won't work, just show to you)
    2)if you have hotmail account, try to add it and later check in edit options if you can change it from POP3 to MSP

    If 1 of those things will show - you have 2.8.
