I imported my calendar and contacts when I switched device from my Blackberry 9900 to the new Z10. However, if I try to sync calendar and contacts in Office 2007 Outlook (not to be confused with Outlook/Hotmail) it does not sync properly and I end up with duplicates on my device and it doesn't upload any new items I've entered on the device to my computer calendar or contacts. Anyone know if this type of syncing is possible? I know you can sync wirelessly with Google or other online calendars and contacts but I like using Outlook from Office 2007 on my own computer. Just noticed that when I transferred (using device switch) my data, including calendar and contacts, from Bold 9900 to Z10 all the entries in my calendar had the time zone changed from Eastern to Reykavik!!! Have to go through every entry, including all my recurring (and there are lots) to correct this. Blackberry Link leaves a lot to be desired compared to Desktop software for all previous Blackberrys. Hope it is updated and corrected soon!

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Thanks for the question.
What version of BlackBerry Link are you currently using? Click on the gear wheel and it will appear on the left side.
I would suggest following the steps in this KB article to find out if a seperate calendar is set as default for synchronization (which can cause synchronization issues): www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB34535
Let me know if you have any more questions.

All of my calendar entries and contacts were duplicated on the Z10 and none of my entries from the phone were uploaded to my Microsoft Outlook (office not hotmail) calendar. I did have the up-to-date versions of BB Link and the o/s on my phone.

If I change the Calendar default to Blackberry Link does that mean that any new entries I make on my device will be synched and uploaded to my computer calendar in Office 2007 Outlook? Also why did it duplicate all my contacts - I'm afraid to sync again because I just deleted all the duplicates!
