Re: OS 2.1 Upgrade Lost Contacts And Calendar Entries

I just updated to 1088 and can confirm that carddav.address.yahoo.com contact integration still does not work.   So composing emails is still a guessing game.  Not impressed at all since this used to work before the prior update.

Re: OS 2.1 Upgrade Lost Contacts And Calendar Entries

My sentiments exactly .. It worked for a long time until the last upgrade. So, we can not blame Yahoo for it. I think it is a RIM problem to own up to.

Re: OS 2.1 Upgrade Lost Contacts And Calendar Entries

Same issue here. For weeks get a nice message from PB telling me that the yahoo server is not available to sync contacts or calendar each time I feel hopeful and try to reinstall. No problems prior to update. Sad. No workaround discovered to date.

Re: OS 2.1 Upgrade Lost Contacts And Calendar Entries

Can everyone who lost their contact, calendar, or email datawith 1032 tell me if they use Yahoo? I suspect it's only Yahoo users who were affectedby this glitch. I too get the Yahoo cannot sign in stuff.

Data loss was only for local calendar/contacts.

Re: OS 2.1 Upgrade Lost Contacts And Calendar Entries

I use Yahoo and that is where I can no longer synch contacts. Email works.

Re: OS 2.1 Upgrade Lost Contacts And Calendar Entries

Hi John

Realizing that the info lost was only local, I was curious as to if it was only Yahoo users that were affected. From some of the replies received this is not the case.

The Yahoo syncing issue is yet another frustration I  have. Unlike some other usersI have not tried to delete and re-establish my Yahoo account. This does not seem to work anyway.

Re: OS 2.1 Upgrade Lost Contacts And Calendar Entries

The loss was only for those not syncing with an account. You still have your data on Yahoo. Those that enetered data manually into their calendar/contacts lost their data completely.

There is another bug having to do with Yahoo! contacts that I don't have any info about.
