    So I guess I'm a bit confused, am I able to sync my google calendars to my lumia 920 AT ALL? I know google took away the activesync or whatever but I'm hearing people say there are work around, I just can't seem to figure out how to do it, I know there must be some way.

    There is no work around necessary, Google extended their Active Sync service until July by then there should be calDav and cardDav support in WP8. So just set up your google account normally.

    hmm I guess I'm doing something wrong then...So all I need to do is add my google accounts (which it already is) and the calendar will automatically sync? what about shared calendars?

    Yes, the default calendar will sync, if you want the shared ones to show up you need to do this: Sync multiple Google Calendars to Windows Phone

    Just FYI, that article isn't accurate anymore, Google changed the URL for the page you need to access on the phone. Here's some updated instructions:

    I don't see how that works either, the mobile sync links say nothing about windows phone, when you click sync with mobile device it only shows android and apple

    Works fine for me, make sure IE on your phone is set to mobile mode and go to http://m.google.com/sync/settings and login with your Google credentials.

    I no longer get that... it just gives me a generic page that says to see if your phone is supported go to m.google.com/sync on your computer.

    This is something I set up a long time ago to get all my shared calenders so something has changed.

    The URL changed from m.google.com/sync to m.google.com/sync/settings sometime in the past few months, but that's the only change I've seen.

    Dumb question, but I'm assuming you're accessing that in IE on your WP8 device? I only get the page you describe if I access it from a PC.

    Here's an example of what I see:

    I think google have changed something, I got my phone in November and went through the process and it worked, had to exchange my phone early in January and never managed to get it working again, kept getting what you see on the updated screen grab. I gave up in the end, exported my calendars out of google and imported to my outlook account, works fine now on my phone, and calendars came through perfect on the export import. Google are ******* me off with there attitude towards windows phone, they used to be open everything, now they have turned into another corporate monster.

    Use a desktop browser with a user agent plugin so you can change it to an iOS Safai user agent, then navigate to the link, perform the required actions and reset the user agent back. It works for me in Chrome with the Chrome UA Spoofer add-in.

    Akruto Sync is a program that in a way does what activesync is doing. It will sync tasks, calendar, and contacts directly between lumia 920 and outlook. It works wirelessly, is a full sync solution, including syncing all historical data, does not have any data limits, and works locally on your computer. I personally think it is the best solution out there to sync windows phone with outlook. Hope it helps.

    My work account is through Google Apps, I added that account to my 820, checked to sync mail, contacts and calendar, and Bob's your uncle. I control all my G.Apps calendar functions flawlessly through my Lumia.

    I went on that website with my gf's iPhone hoping I could select the additional calendars for my 8X.

    I am not able to select my devices from a list anymore. Now all I see is a list of my 4 calendars. They are all selected but I do not see them on my 8X.

    It seems like Google has been making a lot of changes in the last few days. I hope this gets fixed soon.

    Have you enabled the sub-calendars on your 8X? Try turning off calendars for your Google account, then adding again. Once you do that, you should be able to see the additional calender toggles to enable or disable the sub-calendars.

    The link for Windows Phone sync on PC is https://m.google.com/sync/settings/iconfig/device
    Only if you used Chrome on PC with spoofing as iPad/iPhone with User Agent Switcher addon. Google is pain in the ***

    Make sure you have gotten the GDR3 update, and you're good to go. It was removed in WP8 (short of workarounds), and was re-added back in with GDR3. Works just fine for me, no workarounds needed.
