Default BIS Gmail Contact Sync

Please Login to Remove!

Recently I've had to reload my BlackBerry from scratch. My Contacts were previously sync'ed with GMail using the OTA sync introduced in BIS 2.8

My problem is I can not get the contact sync going again.

A few things I have noticed, might be irrelevant to my issue but I have found them interesting.

1. Options -> Advanced Options -> Enterprise Activation, I was missing that option.. I set my Key Store password and the option appeared.. Weird? Isn't it.

2. Options -> Security Options -> Firewall, my firewall is disabled is blocking an "incorrect encryption key".. I had previously reset the count, tried enabling the OTA Sync and the count increased... So that might be where my issue is. The problem is how do I regenerate my encryption on BIS?

Or do I suck it up and call VZW Tech support...?


My last resort was to remove the Gmail account in question and then re-add it.

I did that and Sync the started back up like it should.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
