NEWS FROM TECH SUPPORT - UPDATED LINK COMING to SOLVE OUTLOOK SYNCING ETC

I talked to Tech support today Regarding Outlook sync... there is a work around... defining a hotmail account (with hotmail connector)  in outlook , making hotmail the contact database.... it will sync to the online hotmail account . when you then create the hotmail email on your Z10 .. it does have sync options for your contacts, and calendar.. not a big deal for me because I already had a htomail account in Outlook (as well as 3 other business accounts...

 

ALSO:

the tech guy says by end of month ( I suspect before US release):

Blackberry will have:

* IMPROVED MIGRATION FROM OLD BLACKBERRYs

* "OPPOURTUNITIES to IMPORT CALENDAR, etc. (whatever that means)

* TWO WAY SYNC to OUTLOOK

 

Please use plain text.

Re: NEWS FROM TECH SUPPORT - UPDATED LINK COMING to SOLVE OUTLOOK SYNCING ETC

Thank you.

 

This same coming Link upgrade was announced in this forum three weeks ago:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-Z10/New-Blackberry-10-Sync-to-Outlook/m-p/2170993#...

 

And the Outlook.com/Hotmail sync is detailed here:

http://helpblog.blackberry.com/2013/02/how-to-setup-outlook-to-wirelessly-synchronize-your-contacts-...

 

But I can assure you, the outlook.com/hotmail sync workaround is only a workaround, not a solution. I've been using this not for ~weeks and it works, just not a complete solution.
