700wx to 8330 ? How can I sync w/ exchange server at work (contacts/calandar)

Hello..

 

Wow I'm not sure this is the right device for me.. Verizon 8330 Curve.   I really need to be able to sync up w/ my works exchange server for email, contacts and for my calandar; how can I do this?   Any help would be appreciated, I'm missing my treo already and I wasn't hoping it would be this way.

 

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the forums,

is your device setup as BES or BIS?

What version of software are you running on the device OPTIONS - ABOUT ver 4.x.x.xxx

Specify version of msworks exchange server

Do you have an IT department that administers Blackberry's

Please let me know,

Thanks!

We don't have any blackberry servers...  I have to apologize as I'm not sure what version of exchange server we have running, it's not a very old setup though 2yrs max.  This is a brand new verizon version w/ the 4.3.0.127 version installed.  Most of our company users have Treo's or the motorolla version..

Are you setup as BES, and do you have IT people that adminster the Treo's?

Thanks

We use active sync on the devices now..  I have always setup my own phones etc.  we have an admin but I don't ever really deal with him.

hello,

direct Exchange sync requires through a BES server (that the IT of your company have to buy and install).
There is no ActiveSync for Blackberry.

You can contract a BIS account, that will enable you to receive emails from an email address. It you want to sync with Exchange services (email, address book, tasks, calendar...) you can look at Blackberry Unite and/or Desktop redirector (that will sync with Exchange through your Outlook client). The infos I am giving you are not accurate, but should help you find more information.
