Windows Phone 7.8 - Gmail Sync: contacts and calendar

After January 30 2013, Google dropped Exchange ActiveSync support.
Now if you add a Google account in Windows Phone 7.8, you can sync only emails.
But if I want to sync my Google Contacts and Calendars...??

Just follow this steps:
- Go in Settings >>> Email + Accounts.
- Add an account.
- Choose Outlook (Outlook.com, Exchange, Office 365).
- Write you Google email, password and press Sign In button.

Fill the new page with this informations:
- Account: your Google email
- Domain: google
- Server: m.google.com

Et voilà, you done! :)

    1. Are you sure, you write good the server,domain and your account? I don't remember if the account needs "@gmail.com"

  9. This didnt work for me. I replaced the domain "google" through "aspmx.l.google.com". Also some old accounts require the original name of the account, for me name@googlemail.com.
