BB Z10 and Outlook

Hi. I've just bough the Z10. I was told that you could sync it with Outlook. (I could sync every previous BB with Outlook so readily beleved what I was told this time.) Looking through some of the earlier posts here, it looks as if you can't do this with the Z10. Is this really right? I have been going *mad* with BB Link software but don't seem to be able to do it. I'd be really grateful for some help here. Thank you.

Re: BB Z10 and Outlook

BlackBerry Link doesn't offer the same functionality as the old Desktop Manager did with syncing your PIM data.  I have read some threads where people suggest uploading your data to Outlook.Com, which can then be synced via the device itself.

 

Pretty much BlackBerry Link syncs media.

Re: BB Z10 and Outlook

it won't sync with Outlook but it will sync with a previous Blackberry. There is a 3rd app for syncing BB10 with Outlook, I think it's $15

Re: BB Z10 and Outlook

Thank you everybody. That's a disaster for me. I'm going to have to try and return the wretched thing and get my money back. How *stupid* can BB get in not getting this right?

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 th calendar data from my 9800 to the Z10.

Even though the data transfer report says it has!

 

**bleep**!

    I actually would have loved this phone if it wasn't for the Outlook.  It is just a Toy now.  I need a Tool !
