Default Google Syncs only Work Calendars Not GMail

Please Login to Remove!

I have the current version of Google Sync on my 8320 and a 8900 and it only syncs the calendar events for my Work calendar. My Gmail accounts are completely ignored even if I specifically set my Gmail account as the one to use for the event.

I tried to reset the calendar but that nuked all of my work calendar events so now I'm pissed.

It also tripled my contacts. For some reason it copied my work contacts to Google twice. The next sync caused me to have three copies of all my contacts.

It still won't download my Google calendar. It just keeps copying my work calendar into Google but it won't work the other way around.

I'm fortunate to have the ability to restore items from Exchange, your average user won't have that. So either I'm doing something wrong or Google has a major bug when interacting with Exchange/BES.

It doesn't recognize updated contacts, it just adds anothe entry to your. And I think because it doesn't seems to correctly sync the address(loses line breaks in address) this is further compounded. Its uselfess

GoogleSync only syncs both ways with your main calendar. All other calendars get the one-way push like you described. I've found that syncing contacts is crap. It only syncs about a third of my contacts to GMail and ignores the rest. I've found this happens with any service that uses SyncML (such as SyncJE). Google doesn't say they use SyncML but the same behavior leads me to believe they do.
