NEW Blackberry Devices (OS 10 or above Medels Z10,Q10, etc)

Follow this guide to ensure your latest BB model (OS 10 or above ) is syncing your email, contacts and calendar with your Google Apps account.  









First, access the System Settings menu and select Accounts.














Next, click the Advanced button at the very bottom of the screen.


















Choose Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.











Fill in Description with what you'd like the account to be called on your device.  In the Email Address field, enter your full email address.  In the Domain and Username fields, simply split your email address in the same way shown here. 









Put your Google Apps password in the Password field, and use the server address of m.google.comon port 443.  Turn both SSL and Push on, but leave VPN off.  You may also choose the Sync Timeframe, which determines how much email content to keep on your device.










Finally,  you may choose which items to sync to your device from your Google Apps account.  Unfortunately you can not sync Tasks and Memos with Google Apps at this time.










Hit Done, and the Z10 will verify your settings, add your account, and begin syncing!
