Thanks for the methodolgy to erase the device data, then do one-way sync from PC to BB . How does one erase JUST the organizer data on my BB that is "syncable"? (Calendar, Notes, Task List, and Contacts)...I don't want to wipe the entire device clean.

I've seen that article. They didn't mention MyPhoneExplorer as one of the Outlook/Android sync options. From what I've read, it's about as good as it gets in the Outlook sync realm for Android phones.
Samsung Epic + MyPhoneExplorer + Outlook-Exchange = My next attempt at a mobile phone/calendar/tasks/notes/contacts solution.
If it turns into a massive failure, I may find myself back in RIM's incompetent clutches.

Hi ... Thanks to whoever posted the link to the Blackberry 6.1 system. I wiped the 7.0 completely, dowloaded and installed 6.1 and disabled the auto update. Worked liket a charm.
I suppose at some point BB will fix 7.0 so that it doesn't hang up every time or take hours to resolve. Until then I am NOT upgrading. And come what may, I will have to find an Android solution. I didn't want to -- love my Outlook -- but I guess I will have to.

I also had the problem with "preparing Sync Preview freeze" and this easy workaround fixed it for me:
Deinstall the BlackBerry Desktop s/w and make sure to check the box to remove also all user data and settings.
Restart your desktop or notebook.
Reinstall the BlackBerry Desktop Software.

Same problem here. BB DM 184.108.40.206 Bundle 44 on Windows XP SP3 and Device 6.0 Bundle 3084. I have wasted over 5 hours trying to do a sync and still nothing. I'm going to start looking at other options (read iPhone).

As posted on another forum ...
I have been a computer consultant for just on 40 years.
Trouble-shooter of last resort for a major Australian company (Teletax Systems - part of the MYOB group at the time; now fully incorporated into MYOB).
In this role, I had a 100% success rate in problem resolution.
The last time I saw s/w as shoddily written as this was Novell Netware v2.15b.
EVEN Vista was better (not so sure about Windows ME ... ).
BTW, for those thinking of jumping ship to Apple or Android, I assessed both of these AS PHONES before buying my Blackberry Torch 9810 in January this year. At country Telstra shops, these are NOT recommended for "Remote Rural Use", even though some of them do get the select 'blue tick' for this use (only about 5 phones do ... ); just that they don't actually work very well in such circumstances. My 9810 does ... It also works better than my wife's Nokia N-95.
