I am a brand new convert from palm to BB. Palm's desktop was straightforward in terms of using the calendar and contact.
1. What is a good program to use for a calendar & contact?
2. How do I sync the palm info to BB? I am searching the net and cannot find anything.
3. Anyway to keep/mark a contact as private like yuo can in Plam?
4. Is there anyway I can just open on the desktop a calendar or contact and type in the various info vs. inputting direct into the BB?
Your help is appreciated!!

I am also finding this difficult to use - I got the BB especially for the calendar and contacts. I wanted to be able to sync my BB to my PC so I could always have an updated schedule with me. I was also hoping to be able to use a desktop calendar to enter all my contacts into and have it sync to my bb.
I currently dont have a desktop calendar, and I don't have Outlook - how is this supposed to work?
My bf has a Samsung Jack and it came with software to download to his computer. He was able to type all his contacts into it and have it sync to his Jack, same for his calendar.
This is not what i expected it to be - wishin I had gone with the Jack

Thanks for your help. What I want to keep private is sensative information like credit cards or banking infomation. Is there anyway to make it dissappear from the contact list like on a Palm?
This is just in case I lose the phone or a friend plays with it.

I just got my BlackBerry Curve 8330 (Verizon) yesterday. Its a first for me, but I believe I have most things figured out. I, too, am looking for a calendar to sync to. I use Outlook Express which doesn't have a calendar included.
My real problem is this. I am trying to use the Application Loader in the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. I get the message that the program doesn't have the device software for my device. When I go to updates the 8330 isn't listed. Does anyone know if an earlier version would work. I've searched the BlackBerry site and can't find a link to ask a question.
