    EAS, IMAP, and POP3 are forms of communicating.
    Google uses existing technology.

    Example, the blackberry servers use the EAS technology

    Blackberry does not use EAS (Exchange Active sync) BB uses either a BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) or BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) neither of which rely on EAS.

    So why are we getting this timed out message? A friend here at work enabled EAS for his iphone on our same google account and is downloading full messages on the iphone native app using EAS. What's the difference?

    Technically it's only supported on iphone and WM... it will probably work on the Pre, but its as-is at this point.

    Right - google uses a web interface, IMAP, or google outlook sync - none of those are EAS (Exchange Active SYnc) are they?

    Right now I use both, EAS for my work and IMAP for Google. Both work fine, though loading the message body can take a bit via EAS sometimes. (This is through my works Exchange system, not Gmail.)

    I do like how EAS accesses the GAL when searching for names. My company has 200K people so I don't think synergy could handle having all them on my phone at once.

    No device I've seen, even Gmail itself makes it plainly obvious that you got a new email if you tell it to skip the inbox and archive it.
    I skip the inbox so that things stay organized. I have similar rules setup with outlook, and have no issues getting notifications (not on my phone, but by other means) without trouble. So why do I have to manually check other folders? Would be nice to get an alert about the email, but not have to go and archive everything in my inbox manually. I must just think differently.

    For people using EAS and Gmail, and who maintain multiple calendars with Google Calendar: is there some way of which I'm unaware to get those multiple calendars to sync with the Pre?

    Trying to make sure of that before I just combine my four-ish calendars into one.

    It doesn't try to have them all at once. I have exchange set up for my company on my Pre right now, and when you start doing a universal search for a name, and that name is not in synergy, it pulls up a box that says, Global Search. You tap there, and connects over your network connection to the EAS server and pulls down all applicable matches. Nothing gets stored to the phone. It's actually REALLY slick.

    sorry, why were you trying to do this? The standard way of adding gmail via IMAP to the phone, as is, will pull down all of your calendars automatically.

    I actually have thought the IMAP implementation (via IDLE) for the PRE has been great. I have an exchange account and my IMAP gmail account on the PRE, and they both work about as good. I don't know which is better for battery, and I would suspect EAS may have the leg up, but that doesn't really seem to be why most people are desperate to switch? Normally, I always go for something new and shiny...but IDLE really does work pretty nicely.

    Are different contact fields made available via Google EAS sync or are they the same as through an IMAP synergy sync?
    Thanks

    I'm also having the issue of 'Download of the message body timed out. The system will retry soon.'

    Really irritating. EAS is better than IMAP.

    Why? IMAP is downloading messages right now and EAS isn't. Why are you so compelled to move to EAS? I have used it for years on my WinMO phone for work, and I don't see any major difference. They both seem to work well
