    OK, so I got my 920 up and running last night, and I have a few questions so far:

    - To avoid the GMail sync bug I set up google as an exchange account. Mail is working fine, but I can only seem to sync the main gmail calendar, but not the 5-6 other calendars I have set up. Googling the issue says to use m.google.com/sync, but that only works if the phone is set up as a Gmail account, won't work as an exchange account. Any ideas?

    - I have (well, had) Google's 2 step authentication set up with my android phone. Any idea how to set this up using the account as exchange? It just says my password is invalid, with no way of entering in the authenticator password. Somehow, I don't think this will be the easier solution of the two.

    For the 2-step verification, I know there's a thread on that SOMEWHERE around here but can't remember where it is and can't find it. But I think I remember it having something to do with using a one-time password, so maybe this old video for WP7 might help: Tip: Enable 2-step verification in Gmail for WP7 | Windows Phone Central

    Thanks for the help! Just used this for the 2 step authenticator issue: Gmail 2-Step Verification on Lumia 920

    Would love to have a fix for the gmail issue, or a way to sync the multiple calendars though.

    Mystic, unfortunately you need to set up your gmail account as a google account to do this, not as an exchange account. So you can either get one of your calendars, or the sync bug. I guess I'll have to wait until it's fixed.
