Android supports EAS, so wouldn't they be paying those licences anyway?

That is an entirely different licence.

Well one option not being supported is native calendar invite support w/o active sync. And read/delete/move sync between Gmail inbox and Gmail app.

Or you get a replacement, restore your current iPhone, or get an iPad.

Phone is working fine now.

If I have to change devices after the new year, then gmail app, caldav and carddav will be just fine. I've used this set up already and it works fine. Doesn't make having gmail any less pleasant for me. I'm good.

Not much to say! I, personally, had zero problems with the service! It was, actually, more reliable than than Google's own solution!

The only reason that I stopped using it was to save myself $30 a year!

If / when Google sync stops working, I will go back to "NuevaSync"! My only concern is that there doesn't seem to be much activity on their website or forum.

It would be good if someone could confirm that everything is still well at "NuevaSync"!

Easy

If yours is free, then its not the Business edition.

"Google Apps, Google Apps for Business, Government and Education"

Free, cost, cost, cost

Clear? They are very clear.

It was free businesses in the past. It is considered a business account. That's the confusion that is out there.

Yes confusing. But unless its a paid business account, it will not be supported after January.

No. Business acct was never free.

There was no confusion in Google's language. As I quoted above,'Google Apps' free/standard with up to 10 users and 'Google Apps for Business' two different things.

I created a family account on it back 2010ish and it wasn't confusing then or now.

Same here. I've been using the GMail app exclusively now since it supports proper email deletion (discovered tons of email archived when I deleted them from iOS) and labels. Plus, the UI is nice. Works great for me.

I still used EAS for contacts and calendar for a while. I've now switched to CalDAV and CardDAV and it seems to work fine. I like how I can now choose from my individual Google calendars too. So far, so good.

Hmm. Can you explain more? I can add invitees fine from what I can tell.

I made the switch to Outlook.com with my own domain, perfect! I used pop3 to import 13000 messages from GMail. Really liking the new interface, and it works brilliantly across all of my devices.

You can create up to 500 accounts for free. Each account can have one email address on your domain and unlimited outlook.com aliases. You can even enable public sign up, so anyone could use your domain (I haven't done this). If you wanted more forwarding accounts you could just create a new account on your domain and set it to forward.

Ohhhh will keep, in mine investigate.

Only have 5 on current... But have more family that seem to like the surname email. And lack of exchange could be an issue.

It seems like Google is already phasing out Exchange features.

I can't see a way to select which Calendars sync to your device(s) using Exchange.

That means that if you add a new Calendar, you won't be able to see it on your device using Exchange.

The site where you used to be able to change which calendars showed up now only seems to affect CalDav.

Is this true? If you restore or get a new iphone and restore, google sync will not create a new account every time.

I've restored my iphone 5 many times and checked the device management link under google sync and there aren't any new iphone accounts created, just the one.

So as long as your iphone has been using EAS, you should be able to continue using EAS after January.

Can anyone confirm?

FYI

Outlook.com allows custom domains, 500 accounts. Email, contact, calendar sync via exchange.

Im already planning the switch. Dunno when, but probably around the time I upgrade next.

Google has ~15-20 months to fix their attitude/service.

I already have switched, imported 6 years if email via POP3. Much better service IMO.

Interestingly I can still setup Gmail via Exchange method on iOS ... maybe it was for NEW created accounts after Jan 30, 2013 ... and will always work for older accounts who have this enabled beforehand ....

Has anyone tried resync'ing a back up from an older iPhone to a newly swapped iPhone to see the results of GMail EAS?

Google's description is quite vague and doesn't pinpoint what's going.

EDIT:

Today I've test new GMail's EAS connection, used one of the GF's account on one of my devices that never had that account activated before.

1) Validation passes

2) Fetch mail - fails

3) Pushed email - never makes it

Well, my worst nightmare has happened. I had to get a new iPhone from Apple and I can no longer get push Gmail. My contacts and calendar all synced through google sync. What can I do to get my stuff up and running again? What is the best option?
