Motorola Photon 4G :: It Does Not Sync Calendar, Contact, Gmail With Company Gmail Account
Oct 28, 2011
My Photon 4 G does not sync calendar, contact, Gmail with my company Gmail account. I believe that it just stopped syncing last week and I believe that it was following a Motorola update, but cannot say for sure. Under Data Delivery, both Background Data and Data enabled are checked green. However, this is interesting because Email and corporate sync is grayed out on that screen. When I go to Account, checking the sync options is not possible, but I can do a manual sync. Please note, at one time, these options to sync Contacts, Gmail and Calendar were available. I've pulled the batter. I really do not want to reset to factory default. Suggestions? (Please note this is a company Gmail account, not just regular Gmail.)
I set up my gmail and calendar and they synced properly, but after that I had to go in to profiles and the goggle profile and push a sync to get them to update. I can't find a place in the menu to change the auto-sync settings.
I don't know if my thread title makes sense but basically what I would like to know is what are the advantages of downloading the Gmail app vs just setting up a Gmail account through my BIS (Email Settings/Add Account)? My main objective here is wireless contacts sync. I have read a lot of negative feedback regarding Gmail on a BlackBerry but I will not really even be using this for email all to often, although I will from time to time. What I have done is just added my new Gmail account through the native BlackBerry email setup and then downloaded Google Sync. I downloaded the Gmail app but I didn't really like the UI and I like to have all 3 of my email accounts go into the same folder.
I can only see the Gmail account in my calendar. I want to add other accounts in my clendar and use them. When I got to the calendar options I can only see the default one as my gmail and have no options to change it. I specially wanted to add the face book calendar but none of the other accounts are visible. get the other accounts to my calendar.
I use gmail for my contacts. I noticed when I got my new S5 and logged into gmail some of my contacts had photos and some did not. When I went into edit contact on my desktop there was a photo that I had put in there before.
I checked to make sure that my phone was using my gmail acount for my contacts and it is.
For the past two or three day my X10a (2.1) had continually been trying to sync to my Gmail account. I can turn auto-sync or the data off to make it stop, but once turned back out it starts up again. I have deleted most of my newer mail in case there was something bad included with the mail. Not sure what my next step would be. With the phone trying to sync all the time make it slow to respond to commands.
so I've got the google calendar sync set up on the x10 and gotten it verified by the gmail mobile set up.. and the syncing works both ways for future events.. for some reason no past events on the gmail calendar syncs with the x10 calendar..although any events set up in the past on the x10 calendar updates the gmail calendar fine.. does anyone know if this is a "feature" or do I have to set up some personal settings differently? although for the life of me I can't find any settings on the x10 calendar that specifies the length of time the sync should work for!I know this is not a huge issue but I have had to restore from backups cos of various problems with my x10, so everytime I'm having to manually create the past calendar entries (which I use as tracking meaures for various projects I'm working on) on the phone by looking @ the gmail calendar.
I am trying to sync my gmail calendar to my blackberry, but apparently I need a physics degree or similar to be able to do so...... I used to use google synch, but this no longer works & they have stopped supporting it for blackberry, so no help there. Reading through many forums I saw that I could use BIS to do this. Have downloaded what I think is BIS but mystified about what to do next. I only want to synch my gmail calendar to my blackberry one, how hard can it be?
I tried to sync up the calendar between my calendar and the gmail calendar. Since the sync -up my normal calendar does not open saying there is a process error. Also Moxier calendar does not show anything in the calendar though I have given the right server name for google.
Well guys, I'm going to give the new Samsung Epic a shot in a day or so. I need a way to transfer all of my contacts from this phone onto the Epic. I understand that syncing it with a gmail account is one way. I just don't know how to go about it.if there is a better way please let me know! Going to a Sprint store is not am option for me, sorry. I live on an island 30 miles out to see
I have a good Gmail account with lots of contacts and calendar entries. My device had been synched with this account until this morning when I did a restore from a date prior to having set up the gmail account. I added the gmail account back to the Torch after the restore, and the mail is functioning fine. But the contacts and calendar are not synching between the Torch and the gmail account.
I have checked settings-accounts and everything is checked to sync and it shows it sync'd earlier today but when I log into my gmail account and select contacts there is nothing there. How do I go about backing up this information to my gmail account?
I've just set up a new gmail account and want to sync the contacts from my work phone to contacts in my gmail. I have nearly 700 contacts to sync so I'm looking to do this in the easiest (and most reliable!) way I can - any pointers? Or tips on how to make sure I don't lose them all in the process of syncing?
Used to sync and back up on work computer. Now using my home laptop (don't ask - was there 12 years & it WAS home. Fired due to reorganization.). HP computer now recognizes my phone, but I do not know how to get the software set up to accept GMAIL. The defaults are for YAHOO, which I do not use.
I just got a new curve 9320. Earlier is was using 8520 with google sync and used to sync my contact with gmail contacts. But since I got this device, my contacts are not syncing with gmail contacts. I have selected the options to sync contacts in the email settings and my BIS is working absolutely fine but I don know why contacts are not syncing.
my Bold 9900. Is it possible to setup e-mail service to sync read e-mail.
I there comes new mail to my Gmail account, it immediately appears in my Bold also. If I read this mail on BB, it is marked as read also in my desktop client and on web interface. But if I read new mail in web interface or desktop client it remains marked as unread in Bold (even after few hours!) and I must mark as readed manualy in phone.
I am using the online sync function that works with gmail account. I really like this feature because my 9700 will always have an updated list of contacts.But since I did a device switch, I had to register the email account on my phone again. Now I see 2 contact lists associated with my email account. For example, my gmail has 200 contacts, so on my BB i see 400 contacts all duplicated. If go into Contacts Options -> Contact Lists, I see the same gmail account twice. There is no option to delete one.
(This is only for contacts, as far as email setup, I only see my 1 email account setup)I dont mind just deleting all the contacts on my BB and then resync again, but I can't seem to find a way to delete all the contacts on my phone.
When I started my phone for the first time, it automatically synched my GMail contacts, which I really don't want on the phone. On other Android phones, there was a way to clear the data in Contacts Storage when you went into the app through the app menu. That option is "greyed out" on the Photon, so I can't just erase all the contacts and let my Outlook contacts automatically repopulate.Is there another way to clear Contacts Storage without doing a reset? I"m sure I could get rid of them by starting over, but they I lose all the customization I've already done.
I just got my new Xperia Z3 D6603 Yesterday. Everything is fine. Except my Gmail and Google Calander do not auto sync.
- I already deleted updates for Gmail and reilstalled through Google Play store. Didn't work. - I deleted my Google account and reinstalled. Didn't work. - In settings > accounts > Google > Synchronize, gmail and calender are set to automatic. - I also have all the newest Google and Sony updates installed on my phone.
Altogether it seems like there is something going on with my Google Sync, but I cant find out what is it.
