changing default sync

I synced my wife's bberry to my desktop, albeit with a different pin, but now my defauly sync is set to her name and I can't sync my own bberry anymore. When I go into where it shows what th default emails, etc are it shows her name but nothing else drops down to change it.
How can I change the default sync back to me?

Re: changing default sync

Hello edwardag and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


Are you syncing your device with a desktop program, such as Microsoft® Outlook® or your Mac® Address Book, iCal® etc?  


Can you provide a screen shot of where you are seeing this default sync setting?


What version of the BlackBerry® Desktop Software are you using?

Re: changing default sync

Thanks for responding.


I'm using Blackeberry Desktop version


Device software 6.0.0 719 


On my Blackberry Bold when I go to Options-Device-Advanced System Settings-Default Services, it has the default placement for my calendar, contact list and messaging. The contact List (SYNC) is set to my wife's email address and I can't change it back to my name. When I click on it there isn;t any drop down to choose another sync name. How do i change that sync name?


I can't get a screen shot but it says that the default is no longer available and it shows my wife's email address. Ilso says to go to default services and try to cgange it there, but is not allowing me to.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
