Sync to Windows Live Calendar

When I sync my Torch to my pc running Windows7 there is the option to sync contacts to Windows Live Contacts but no option to sync calendar to Windows Live Calendar.

Is there a work around or do I need to spend $170.00 for Outlook?

Re: Sync to Windows Live Calendar

Hey cbillingsley,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

BlackBerry Desktop Software does not synchronize with Windows Live Calendar.

 

We do sync with Google Calendar if you have a gmail account and this is done wirelessly.  And you do have the option of using Outlook as well.

As of right now there will be no support for Windows Live Calendar and BlackBerry Desktop Software.

Re: Sync to Windows Live Calendar

I see back a few months that there was no solution to syncing contacts and calendar with Live Mail. Has the situation or the future changed on this subject?

 

There is more collaboration between Rim and Microsoft lately. Microsoft is encouraging more Cloud usage. So why is this not an option on DTM or an app of some sort? Can't there be some way of syncing in the Cloud? Why do we need expensive desktop software installed? Is not RIM thinking Cloud like everyone else?

 

Thanks

Dwyne

Re: Sync to Windows Live Calendar

I have the same concerns. As you can see the 'vicious ferret' syys there is no direction by RIM at this time. His answer was last week.

Re: Sync to Windows Live Calendar

I agree, conidering most of us do not have MS Outlook on our personal computer, it is stupid to not have the sync option for Windows Live Calendar.

 

 

Maybe it is time for me to say goodbye to Blackberry.  Everyone else I know has dropped the already for other phone.

Re: Sync to Windows Live Calendar

[ Edited ]

Hi. I'm just new to the forum. I got an upgrade from Blackberry a little while ago and it says I can now sync my 8310 to Windows Calendar, but I've been unable to do that. Can anybody help with that?

(Sorry, should have added this):  I keep getting a message that says

CPreferencesManager: Configuration Value for /Preferences2/CalFilename not set in TransConfig.xml

Re: Sync to Windows Live Calendar

Check this info; http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_live/b/windowslive/archive/2010/06/18/get-your-windows-live-calen...;

 

It is not as elegant as the BlackBerry built-in calendar app, but it is reasonably fast and lets you use you LIVE calendar across many platforms. 

 

btw, I have a PlayBook also, and Windows Live Calendar will sync directly into the new OS calendar app; very easy to set up as well.
