Hi All, I just got a BB Curve 9320 model to replace my dead LG. I use the phone for my convenience only but I fondly remember my old Palm Pilot and it's wonderful Calendar application that let me keep track of my life and where I was supposed to be and when. I had hoped that the Curve would be able to do the same thing with it's calendar function. I thought that using the BB desktop and plugging the Curve into my laptop to enable them to communicate that I would have the same function as the Palm Pilot did in my previous life. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get this to operate as I had envisioned...........am I doing something wrong or without the data plan is this just not possible?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
What is inaccurate is your expectation...what you expect is not a designed functionality...a few things to discuss...so bear with me...
Contrary to how others do things, RIM does not provide a desktop PIM. Others force you to use their PIM and only their PIM. RIM provides a conduit software that functions as a bridge between your chosen PIM and the BB. See this KB for compatible PIM's:
So, to do what you desire requires the use of a desktop PIM to manage your data...choose a compatible PIM (from above). Then, get your data into the desktop PIM. Then, configure the BB to sync with the PIM:
Good luck and let us know!

a sincere thank you to BB support forum in general and huge round of applause to "SDgardne" in particular. I suppose it's 4th time lucky, 'cause that is how many times I thought I had downloaded the correct BB desktop software and nothing happened. This time it downloaded properly and syncced almost by itself, my contact list is current (and the same in both places)and the calendar (Outlook/Hotmail)appears to be functioning as I had hoped it would. Thank you again for your support and let's hope that this homegrown Cdn. product can keep jogging along.....
