Google Sync allows you to sync mail, calendar, and contacts from your Google Apps account to your BlackBerry device. Before setting up Google Sync, back up your BlackBerry data to your computer following the instructions in BlackBerry’s Knowledge Base.
Your administrator needs to have Google Sync enabled before you can use Google Sync. Note that after you set up Google Sync, your administrator may also have additional device management capabilities (such as remote wipe or password requirements). Contact your administrator for more details.

You've set up Google Sync! Synchronization will begin automatically if you have Push enabled on your device. You can also open the Mail, Calendar, or Contacts app and wait a few seconds to start a sync. Note that if you've recently signed up for Google Apps for Business, Education, or Government, it can take a few hours (up to 24) before you're able to sync with your mobile device.
If you receive a "Service for account is not available" error on your device after configuring Google Sync, please check with your domain administrator to see if you're required to create a device password. If your administrator is enforcing the use of device passwords, you'll need to create one on your device before you can sync. Please refer to BlackBerry's instructions for additional information.
