This may be on the wrong board, but I only have an 8900.
I've had Google Sync and the Gmail App working on my BB since I bought the phone around six months ago, and everything's worked perfectly. Today, I noticed a contact on my Gmail account hadn't synced with my BB address book. I manually started a sync, and it asked for my username and password. It then said 'login failure, check your settings'. My BB internet is working fine, using both the BB browser and Opera Mini. My email through BIS is also working fine - it's just the Gmail Mobile App and Sync that don't seem to be working.
I've Googled the problem, and so I added Orange APN settings to my BB (there were no settings there before under options > advanced > TCP/IP).I can now sync and view emails withint my Gmail Mobile App, but I get the impression through various forums that Orange will charge me data access for this, as my only data plan is 'Unlimited BlackBerry Internet'.
Has anyone else had the same issue? Any resolutions? Or if there are any Orange employees trawling the forums, will I be charged data access for any data coming through the Orange APN?
As always, thank you for any responses.
