    Wouldn't this also effect iOS users who use Google Sync's EAS support to sync their contacts and calendars? Well if they get a new account anyways...I am just curious because they keep posting this everywhere as a Windows Phone issue but isn't it bigger than that?

    Ha, I kinda thought that would happen. Google said they were gonna kill it soon to make Microsoft sweat a little bit then at the last minute extend it. :)

    I personally think they tried this to get people to not get a windows phone... And instead found users of windows phone leaving the Google ecosystem entirely. I did.

    I believe iOS supports the new format that Google is switching to.

    Is that why there's a separate Gmail app for iOS? And even Android itself?

    Wouldn't be surprised if that's when the next major windows phone update drops.

    iOS supports DAV natively if you use the Gmail app or set up your Gmail account as IMAP. You have to enter your account info twice, but you still get mail, contacts and calendars without EAS.

    Imap does not support push, so this does also help those iOS users who don't want to use the GMAIL app.

    You realize this gives us a maximum timeline for the next firmware update.

    Hope to get one before then but this is the maximum duration before it has to roll out to everyone.
