Re: How do I sync Outlook 2010 with my BB-Z10?

I just want to die. Set-up an Outlook.com account, copied my contacts and calendar, then watched as over a 1000 meeting invites and meeting acceptances were re-sent for the last 2 years. Imagine what my inbox looks like now as everyone is asking me if I've been hacked or received a virus.

What a joke this whole process is.

One more attempt - if it fails, then back to the Torch so I can exchange for an Apple or Galaxy.

Mike

Re: How do I sync Outlook 2010 with my BB-Z10?

This is a nightmare! I invested all my money on the z10 and it doesn't sync with Outlook? are they serious. How am i supposed to run my business. I made a terrible mistake investing in this device.

 

I have gone to Outlook.com but it is not syncing my Calendar properly. Also my music is all mixed into all playlists including my Podcasts.  Right now this device is just junk

 

Anyone have any updates on the above -syncing music and Calendar?

Music not so much... sorry I don't tend to do it.

I sync my outlook calendar with google which syncs onto my blackberry.

This is one option for a workaround. If you need more info let me know.

I totaly agree here. this device has been a NIGHTMARE!. I have spent hours trying to figure out how to sync my music and calendar. Still getting sphagetti with my musinc mixing playlists and podcasts. My Calendar syncs some apt not other.

 

Taking my device back. Based on what i hear in twitter and facebook and these message boards. Blackberry is done.

Re: How do I sync Outlook 2010 with my BB-Z10?

Ok,

So, I'm assuming that you have a gmail account with this. If not just make one.

 

Download the Google Sync for Outlook (it sync your Google Calendar to your Outlook Calendar and vice versa). Or google Sync Gmail with Outlook and you'll get this link:

 

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=northam--201...

 

To set the Google Calendar  up with your Z10 follow this support article (KB33472):

 

http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/viewdocument.do?noCount=true&externalId=KB33472&sliceId=2&di...

 

So now for some warnings:

1. Set the google sync to your outlook for 5 to 15 minutes. I believe the default is a hour and it will drive you crazy if it doesn't sync just before you're to go home.

 

2. It can take a little while for the Google Calender and the BB10 Calendar to sync (30 minutes). I have found it to be faster (like 5 seconds) but there are times where it might be slow. It's a known issue and there is nada you can do about it.

 

If it doesn't work out let me know.

The links got broken.

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=northam--201...

 

Or google Google Outlook Sync (it'll come up)

 

Here is the text from the support article:

 

  • Swipe down from the top bezel
  • Select Settings
  • Select Accounts
  • Select Add Account
  • Select Advanced at the bottom of the screen
  • Select Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync
  • Complete all desired and required fields - Server address: m.google.com and Port:443
  • Select Next
  • Select desired PIM items for Synchronization

thanks for the help here..

I see Select Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync - i am not on an exchange server - is that a deal breaker?

No... doesn't matter. It just treats your gmail account like one which actually makes things work better than if you try to do the IMAP/divCal/whatever stuff.
