BlackBerry® Link

Getting my calendar, contacts and tasks synced with Outlook.

Is true that it can't be done with BB 10? Using the new new BlackBerry Link, it does not synchronize the same as the old BlackBerry Desktop?

I just picked the device up earlier today and it will go back tomorrow if this device can't do that.

HELP from BB, please!!

Re: Getting my calendar, contacts and tasks synced with Outlook.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

At this time, there is no capability for direct sync between the Outlook client and the BB10 device. All sync is done OTA with compatible services. They have stated, in various arenas, that they intend to return the direct sync capability by the end of this year.

Good luck!
