    Hi I'm planning to get HTC 8S because it is so pretty and the specs is enough for me.

    A few months ago I heard Google will discontinue the sync support starting 30 Jan 2012, but current user can still use it.
    Is that time limit true?

    If I order now, I will receive it mid-Feb. Can I still use Google sync?

    Thank You

    That time limit is true. However IMAP email will work for live mail and the rumor mill has it that Microsoft have an update coming that adds DAV support for the calendar and contacts too.

    There are work arounds even if that fails to arrive though - apps in the store to do the Sync.

    I would be surprised if a solution didn't show quickly though.

    Hiya,

    IMAP sync will take care of email. For contact and calendar sync, WP8 does not yet support CalDAV and CardDAV, but MS is said to be working on a fix for this. Currently, this is one of two factors delaying my purchase of a 920 (the other being whatever new hotness comes out at MWC).

    Thanks, I will also delay the purchase until it got proper CardDAV and Notification Center

    I think they are discontinuing device accounts for new devices. If a user already has an account and a device being synced, it should still work. Of course, when they get a new or replacement, that will be a problem.
