    Hello, I've a problem to sync my Gmail account on Samsung Ativ S, a WP8 phone.
    Simply, it doesn't work.
    I tried the 10 minutes unlock method of Gmail site, but nothing change.

    How can I do?

    Try doing a search on Gmail in the search forum area above. There are too many threads to list. Good luck and hope you find your answer.

    You have no choice because Google discontinued ActiveSync for Gmail to **** off all WP owners. You maybe able to setup a gmail sync manually with IMAP. But you still won't be able to sync contacts and calendars. The default of Windows phone will automatically set it up using ActiveSync.

    What about a 3rd part app? Does exist something?

    There are some apps let you sync Google Calendar using CalDav protocol IIRC. But Google is sun setting that as well. In a nut shell, if you have to have Gmail, better sticking with Android or iPhone (Google does have a Gmail app for iOS). Microsoft is suppose to come up with something (maybe in GDR2 update) to resolve this issue but we haven't seen or heard anything about it yet. On the Windows 8 (PC) OS, Microsoft did updated its Mail app to switch Gmail to IMAP but removed calendar sync and put the contacts to your Outlook.com account.

    This will end by 12/31/2013. No more ActiveSync support after that.

    Ever since the first of this month, I've had issues syncing on my Lumia 1020.
    I have a many years old free Google Apps account. I think that may be the issue.
    However, setting up as an Outlook account seems to be working fine for eMail. But as soon as I try to sync Calendar, I get an out-of-memory error.

    Just tried this for my mom's email (@x.edu.br) in her Lumia 800 and worked flawlessly. Thank you.
