Google Sync is a BlackBerry client that downloads Google Calendar events onto your BlackBerry, and uploads Calendar events from your BlackBerry (two-way synchronization over the air). Google Sync is seamlessly integrated into BlackBerry's built-in calendar.
It's kind of a buggy app so not sure there's a tried and true solution. Some people have reported deleting and reinstalling it works, some people say installing using the Google Mobile Updater instead of the direct OTA link works, and some people say they had 1st letter in their username capitalized and when they changed it to lower-case, it worked. Trial and error mostly! One thing I would recommend is if you do try to delete and re-install, log out first. If you don't you will end up with corrupted calendar entries. Good luck!!!!
Do you synch your phone to Outlook on the PC? If you do, then try to synch the phone to Google it won't work. Any entries that have been synched from or to Outlook won't migrate to Google. So you have to choose between synching your phone to Outlook or Google.
There is another app at Google, it synchs with Outlook. But it only works with Outlook 2003 and up.

Agree with that. I only sync tasks, notes, and contacts between my BB and Outlook. I sync Outlook calendar using a 3rd party software (SyncMyCal) with Google. Has worked pretty well. I like using the 3rd party because it lets me sync all of my Google calendars with Outlook which I believe the Google Outlook app lacks. (I could be wrong on this) The two downsides to the Google Sync app for BB is 1) that you can only upload to your default Google calendar. You then have to change the appt., if desired, to the correct calendar on Google or Outlook. 2) Google Sync removes all past appts from your BB older than 7 days. They remain on Google and Outlook, but kind of a pain if you want to reference something from two weeks ago and you're not near a computer. However, you can always go to the mobile Google Calendar on your BB browser. All things considered, worth it to me.
