Default Syncing Gmail contacts through Thunderbird

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, so I haven't been able to find a way to sync my Gmail contacts with my BlackBerry. But, I found this plugin called Zindus (sorry, I don't have enough posts to link it).

It syncs your Gmail contacts with Thunderbird. Could I then just sync my BB contacts with Thunderbird, and have my Gmail contacts? Or would this not work?

DM doesn't sync with Thunderbird at all as far as I know. Don't know if 4.6 added it or not. Perhaps load into Outlook Express and sync that way. I don't know if Google Sync will sync contacts. I know it syncs the calendar.

Outlook is by far the best and easiest way to sync contacts and calendar info however. I used to use T-bird extensively and still like its message handling features better than Outlook's, but once I went to the BB, I switched to Outlook and do not regret it at all.
