Microsoft outlook sync?

[ Edited ]

upgraded from torch to z10 and now cant sync with outlook calendar and contacts etc, something which is very important to my job. Am i doing something wrong or is it not supported? If the latter, then this is poor... Love the phone but it has to do its job, which all other blackberry phones do well.  Help???

Re: Microsoft outlook sync?

How are you trying to sync them? I believe Blackberry is moving in the direction of over the air sync'ing for PIM data rather than via USB given they have missed this function from Link.

Re: Microsoft outlook sync?

Tried using BlackBerry link, but the sync is missing. I have no idea how to do it any other way. 

Any other ways to sync with Microsoft products would be grateful.

Re: Microsoft outlook sync?

You may find something if you have a google, but Blackberry appears to have dropped the sync element. 

 

What email service do you use? If your contacts, calendar etc are all sync'd to the cloud (Exchange, Gmail, Outlook.com, hotmail etc) you can set the account up on the Z10 and these will sync over the air automatically.

Re: Microsoft outlook sync?

Yes you can sync outlook to cloud and then access cloud via device.

Re: Microsoft outlook sync?

I've been monitoring this issue and posted a similar subject (Will BB10 + BB Link natively sync to Outlook?). While I don't have a BB10 yet (and may not need to if it won't sync via USB to Outlook) the only solution I've found that may be available is Deja Office / Companion Link. Their website mentions they will support BB10, but then why use a BB at all? I had considered an Android w/ Deja Office in the event the new BB10 didn't live up to expectations. I never imagined they would drop the one feature I rely on the most. I am also posting to your message to keep this issue at the top of the list. Perhaps if BB is paying attention they'll realize their monumental blunder and correct this ASAP.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Here is some discussion that might help you.

Things are different, but you CAN accomplish calendar and contact synchronization between your PC Outlook and your Z10...just in a very different way; you need an internet-based conduit (e.g., HotMail).

 

Good luck!
