Default 8830 - Wireless Google Calendar Sync?

Please Login to Remove!

Anybody know at what OS version wireless Google Calendar and Contacts sync works? I just picked up an 8830 and updated to OS 4.5 (the latest/greatest for this model). I simply cannot get wireless sync to work with Google Calendar and Contacts. I just got all this working on a newer 8330 Curve running OS 5.

I downloaded the Enhanced GMail Plugin.
Set my Default Services to my GMail account.
Deleted and re-added my GMail email account.
Pulled the battery a dozen times along the way.

No joy. Every time I try to enable wireless sync I find there is no option to change the setting from No. It's not grayed out, it's just that there is no other option besides No. I fear that OS 5 may be the minimals for this service.

If anybody has wireless calendar and contacts sync working with Google on an 8830 please chime in. I could use either encouragement or the straight up news that it just won't work.

According to this, 4.5 *should* work for the Enhanced Google Mail Plug-in

BlackBerry - Enhanced Gmailxxx8482; Plug-In

Doh! that probably wasn't what you were looking for... Sorry.

This may be enlightening.

KB19269-What is Google Mail contact synchronization

Quote:
Note: Two-way wireless contact synchronization with the Google Mail contact list requires BlackBerry Device Software 5.0. Synchronization must be configured through email settings on the BlackBerry smartphone. Additional requirements and constraints may be found within the BlackBerry Internet Service 2.8 documentation kit. This feature is not supported on BlackBerry smartphones with BlackBerry® Connectxxx8482; software.

Note: Google Mail contact synchronization is not supported on versions of BlackBerry Device Software earlier than version 5.0.284.

Thanks. I was afraid of that. At least I can stop banging my head against the wall trying to figure it out.

I picked up a Curve 8330 and an 8830 world phone as backups/vacation/beach devices. Looks like the Curve will go with me to Ocean City.
