Cool google and bb calendar sync

Please Login to Remove!

hello everybody!
i'm trying to sync my bb calendar and my gmail calendar, and have a few problems :

(1) first of all, i've used 'google sync' application which seems to be working fine for all regarding the contact and some of the calendar.
(2) when syncing the calendar, bb does download information from the google calendar, and updates it, but it doesn't update google calendar - so the things i write down on the bb, don't get a backup on google calendar, and don't upload there.

(3) and another different question - i have the option to label a certain email, but i only have the option of "spam" and "inbox" - how can i create more labels?

cheers

google sync only syncs gg to bb, not bb to google.
you cant have labels, just like you can have folders.
its a BIS thing.
Unless you use the gmail app.

Default managing the labels

so the only option i have is through google mail application (which doesn't load for the first time... data connection problems!! and google sync doesn't connect either!! what the hell is happening?!?)? i can't label email throught the bb? cause that option exist, but doesn't have different labels besides "inbox" and "spam" which is pretty basic..

I tried Google Sync a few times, but was very disappointed. Seems like too much of a hack to me.

there has been some data issues with various applications over the last couple of days.

but yes, you cant have labels with pushed email through BIS.
you can only do it through the gmail app.

No google sync can sync from bb to google. I do it all the time. Try resetting sync. Also, as midnight has said, there have been some data problems around the world.
