When a BlackBerry® smartphone user integrates a Gmail® account with the BlackBerry® Internet Service account, Gmail calendar entries can be synchronized with the calendar on the BlackBerry smartphone.

With two-way wireless synchronization, the BlackBerry smartphone user can add, edit, or delete information using a computer or the BlackBerry smartphone.

For details on how to enable or disable calendar synchronization, see KB24204.

CollapseAdditional Information
