Default Gmail Contact Syncing on BIS?

Please Login to Remove!

I've just logged in to o2email.co.uk - I have a BIS account. There is now an option to synchronise my contacts. I've enabled it and I get the following message:

To start d*****@gmail.com contacts synchronization with your BlackBerry® device, complete the security activation on your device:
1. In the Setup folder, log in to the email settings application.
2. After you log in, the security activation starts. By completing the security activation, wireless synchronization of your contacts entries with your device automatically begins.


I don't have an email settings applications in my setup folder (or anywhere else). Any ideas on any other way I could enable this?

Are you sure the BIS service books have been pushed to you? If in doubt, see http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.p...rvice_books%3F.



You have an app somewhere on your blackberry. It may be labeled "setup internet email", but at least something similar to that. It may be hidden for some reason, or it may be in a folder. Use the menu to select show all, and then look everywhere.

I've temporarily changed back to the default theme and the Email Setup programme was in the setup folder. So - problem solved! thanks.

Backup your contacts prior to turning on the Sync - Trust me!!
