BIS 3.0 2-Way Gmail Sync in EMEA? Let Us Know!

24 Comments

We received an email yesterday about EMEA users possibly having 2-way Gmail sync upgrades, and reading around the blogs it seems miBlackBerry are reporting this as well. The comments and forum posts have been a little confused about the situation, as some users think they have it, while others don’t. I thought I would put it out to any EMEA readers and see if they noticed the 2-way Gmail sync. The original tip came from Vodafone Spain.

Let us know if you’re upgraded and now get 2-way Gmail sync.

    Hi,
    I'm in the UK where the sun is shining, planes can't fly and Google Sync is still on version 0.7.3.

    So, unless the 2-sync option is hidden, needs a restart or I'm a numpty…

    email sent through the web or gmail app is showing up as a sent msg in my bb messages folder now. – Pakistan

  • Rudy

    Emails sent from gmail via the PC are appearing in my BB inbox; and as read.

    However, emails that are *already* in my BB inbox don't sync read/unread when I read them on my PC.

    It's Gmail sync on the BlackBerry, not the Google Sync app.

  • Sean

    Yup 2-way sync is up and running in gmail in the UK (Vodafone).

    Emails sent from my desktop appear on my berry and deletions on the Berry are deletd on the server. Read emails on the desktop/web also get marked read on the Berry.

    Finally it's here.

    In India – 2-way sync happening. Messages sent from the web are appearing on my device as well.

  • Shak

    Confirmed from Zain Kuwait and it's simply amazing! Emails written on the web are synced without a sound! They just appear in thread!

    A friend of mine also confirmed it on Wataniya Kuwait, and Alpha Lebanon.

    Two-way sync started to work in EMEA last Sunday. It is really a quite neat feature.

    Stuck in Portugal with no flight home until Sunday at earliest
    On O2 Ireland and its been operating since last Friday for me
    Couldn't actually believe it when I saw it as I was expecting loads more on the blogs about it!

  • Dougleberry

    I'm in South Africa and yes I have 2-way sync. All of my gmails sent from my laptop appear in my messages folder. It has been happening for the last few days, maybe a week.

    I confirm that 2-way gmail sync is working in Malta!
    Hard reset was needed

  • DACCI

    2-Way Gmail Sync is already up in APAC.

  • Laurent

    No real sync:
    sent messages appear, read and deleted messages on the web are not synced on the BB

    Have two way sync with Gmail and Google Apps (hosted domain) in the Netherlands with the Vodafone network. Works great!

  • Jordi

    yes, two-way sync is a reality and it's incredible. works with Orange in Austria.

    So the 2 way sync is definately working. archive a mail on the pc it dissappears on the bb. label a mail on the pc it gets the same label on the BB. read a mail on the pc and bam it gets un bolded on the bb. BUT… if you archive a mail on the pc… it dissappears on the BB (which is great) but the little notification icon remains – this is not so great, in fact it is so annoying i am thinking of going back to the old system. This is the same if you label a mail on the pc and archive it, it goes out of the inbox on the BB but the notification remains until you go into the label find the mail and actually read it. – any one else having this issue? any ideas for a fix. Other than this all is great.

  • pauldv

    so i have come up with a work around.

    when i manually archive a mail on the pc, i make a point of reading it first that way, the notification icon dissappears on the bb. (before i used to just check the box and label/archive)

    All my rules i have for auto archiving and labeling mails on the pc (gmail site) i went in and have checked the box to mark emails as read when they archive them (this is an option). this way it also removes the mailbox icon on the BB.

    so i am content, it is a slight pain but nothing major, hopefully they will fix this as things progress.

    Anyone else having the same issue/doing anything better to make it work?

    can confirm that it is working in canada with Rogers BIS. Started today…sent an email on my pc it showed up on my BB — was not immediate but pretty quick….

  • Paul Sweeney

    In UK on Orange here. Sent items from web are showing up on my BB, but deleting emails on web does not delete them from BB.
