How to sync my AOL calendar with my Bold 9000

I recently took over my office Bold 9000 for personal use. After some initial hassle, the vodafone shop managed to crack it open (metaphorically) for internet access and my AIM account,  so I now get my emails. But I can't find any way to access my aol calendar. Have downloaded funambol but haven't found a way or running it on my handset , which has no discernible apps function. Advice please. PS: I'm always not aware that I have a pin. Do I need one?

There is no "maximize panel on the 9000 model device.

 

Instead, follow the directions to setup your AOL calendar wireless sync from these directions:

Article ID: KB04976 Enable and disable wireless organizer data synchronization

Scroll down to "For BlackBerry® Device Software 4.0 to 5.0:"

Re: How to sync my AOL calendar with my Bold 9000

Thanks for quick reply. I tried your suggestion but my calendar options seem stuck on "no" to wireless synchronisation  - no alternative or check box offered. On looking further it looks as if the problem may be with "Pre-requisites for synchronisation", which tells me " Your blackberry device must be assoicated with an email account that uses a Blackberry Enterprise Sever that supports this feature. Contact your administrator".

This is despite fact that my default calendar setting is now set to my  aol address, not the old work one. Further problem  - couldn't even connect to the office server if it wanted to since  the organisation has closed and the server and administrator no longer exist!

Any  more thoughts on this one..?

Re: How to sync my AOL calendar with my Bold 9000

.thanks for this - you are right (no maximise panel). Followed the link to article you suggested but have same problem as reported to other person who helped, namely no option of "yes" for wireless synchronisation is offered in calendar options - seems to be on default setting of No.. All other options seem to be working so unique to this key question
