Re: Z10 What happened to sync for contacts and calendars from Outlook etc

I just created a google account on my iPad and it synced all my data. So now my work and home computers, iPad and BB Z10 sync automatically. Too Cool !!

Re: Z10 What happened to sync for contacts and calendars from Outlook etc

I sent a invitation for an appointment to a guy at work for a test, he sent it back accepting the appointment and it updated my outlook calendar at work, then it he appointment went to my iPad, Z10 and home computer.

I thought of a solution.

If I sync my 9800 with my outlook using the PC BB Desktop application, then use the Blackberry Link to copy my 9800 calendar data to my Z10.

 

Sounds easy, right?

Wrong - BB Link does not transer the calendar data from my 9800 to the Z10.

Even though the data transfer report says it has!

Re: Z10 What happened to sync for contacts and calendars from Outlook etc

This is so dissapointing and disheartening.  Have been waiting since June 2012 to upgrade.  Due to the security requirements of my line of work, USB or Bluetooth is my only real option to sync to Outlook.  Have put up with a lot of grief from many given my allegiance to BB.  It is truly unfathomable that BB would do something like this.  Will wait until the Z10 is available in the States to make my final decision, but it is looking like my 9650 will be my last Berry.  At least I won't have this problem with the Windows phone.

This will take care of all your problems when release,

Should be approved shortly.

 

This could be pricy so I hope Blackberry will add these modes in Link as were available in Desktop Manager .

Re: Z10 What happened to sync for contacts and calendars from Outlook etc

I would have no problem using/paying for companion link, but from what I understand, it syncs your outlook data to dejaoffice. This would mean that my calendars and contacts go to deja calendar and deja contacts, not the native bb contacts/calendar.

Re: Z10 What happened to sync for contacts and calendars from Outlook etc

Has anyone here tried to read this page on an X10? The print is so tiny I certainly can't read it. Not even turning the X10 on its side is enough. By the time I get it big enough, it's way beyond the margins, and I have to move the text side to side.

Ticfever, that's awesome news! Thanks for sharing. If this is true, BB will certainly keep me as a customer. Fantastic

Hey that is excellent! Would you mind telling us more about your source? "blackberry support" can mean many things...what channel did you get that from?

 

Thanks!
