When BIS 2.8 launched in North America earlier this month I was dying to play with the Google Contacts sync option. Turns out that carriers had to enable this feature themselves and that was probably not going to happen until OS 5.0 was officially released.
Turns out I though wrong. I have been getting reports this past week that Google Contact sync has started showing up as an option for some users on Verizon and even AT&T. Bob let me know tonight that his BlackBerry Tour running OS 5.0 now has Google Contact sync that works. I have also heard from another friend that only when they logged into the Verizon BIS from their BlackBerry browser did the option show up… I even heard from a user on AT&T who says that as of today he has started seeing the Google Contact sync option in his BIS. I am also on AT&T and don’t see any such thing…
Still this begs the question. Do you have the option for Google Contacts sync on your BES? If so what carrier/OS are you using and what did you do to make it work?
