We have been receiving your feedback regarding PIM synchronization to and from Desktop. We want to thank you and let you know that we are listening.
Some of you are asking how to sync PIM data between your BlackBerry Z10 and computer in general, others just want to do this directly between the phone and computer. We want to address both here.
With BlackBerry 10 the syncing of PIM data between your BlackBerry Z10 and computer can be easily configured to happen over the air. You need to add your existing webmail accounts on the BlackBerry Z10 and set the email, contacts, calendar for syncing. We have posted information on how to do this, for example with Outlook.com, on our Help Blog.
Those of you for whom over the air synchronization is not an option, we want to assure you that direct sync via USB is also being worked on and we are committed on adding this capability as part of our BlackBerry Link software suite.
Our first major update for BlackBerry Link coming in the next few weeks will include the ability to import contact and calendar information directly from Outlook to your BlackBerry 10 smartphone.
Full two-way sync will be added in the next update shortly thereafter.
We will provide more information about timing of these features on our various forums and blogs, but you can also look for updates at http://BlackBerry.com/BlackBerryLink
