Hello. I just purchased the BlackBerry Bold (previously have used various other BlackBerry devices). I've set up my Yahoo! Mail account via BIS with no problems. Under Calendar Options on the device, I see Yahoo! Mail with a field for wireless synchronization set to "No" and I'm unable to change it. I'm having trouble understanding why these options have been provided and yet I cannot change them.
I was hoping that by now the new versions of BIS server would support calendar and contact sync on Yahoo! and some other web-based e-mail providers. Has any progress been made in this regard? If so, how can I sync my Yahoo! Calendar on my Bold as well as my contacts on Yahoo! with Address Book on the device?
Thanks so much for your help!

Desktop manager 4.6 does sync with Yahoo.
Here is the correct setup procedure:

Thanks for the prompt reply!
I was looking for a wireless solution to Yahoo! calendar sync for two reasons: 1) up-to-the-minute updates; and 2) because I use a Mac and therefore cannot use the desktop manager application.

Took me a while to find this, BUT IT WORKED!!! You have to have a gmail account for this to work.1. Create a google calendar.
Now both google and yahoo are sync'd with each other. You will have to download the google sync app to your phone http://www.google.com/mobile/products/sync.html#p=

Did all of the steps and everything worked fine the first time. Then I made updates to my yahoo calender and tried the sync now from my bold and no new information was synced. Went to my google calender to see if the new info was there and those days that I changed are not even on the calendar. Do I have to resync everything everytime I make updates?

I tried the same steps and it does not work after the first sync.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to make the sync between the Blackberry Bold and Yahoo calendar work - wirelessly or using the USB cable?

According to Yahoo Help! (March 2012),
it is no longer possible to sync Yahoo! Calendar with BlackBerry devices :-(
