Calendar Synchronization Fails 0x80040fb3

Ok I just purchased the BB Bold and so far I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to debug why the calendar items will not synchronize.  I'm getting the same generic error that appears when contact information is incomplete.  My contacts synchronize with no problems.


Here's my config:

DM 4.7

Outlook 2007 all patched

USB connection

Two Way Sync

Transfer only future items (turns out to be about 21)

Remove past alerts (tried all options)

Conflict resolution: Add all conflicting items (tried all options)


Error encountered.  Error code - 0x80040fb3.  Check Documenation


I've tried the DM uninstall. 

I've tried 4.6 (came on cd)

I've removed all attachemnts from my calendar appointments

I've tried to get a single calendar item to synchronize with no success

I performed a hard reboot on the BB

I cleared all calendar items from the BB

I reset the phone completely


I'm sure there have been other tests, but I am open to suggestions before I give the gravity test a try from a high story building.

Re: Calendar Synchronization Fails 0x80040fb3

I am having the exact same problem and it just started yesterday.  I've been in 4.6 and today since the error was still there I installed 4.7 thinking it would fix the issue but it doesn't.  Now I can't synchronize my outlook to my blackberry because of this error.  HELP!!!

Hi and welcome to the forums!

The hex code is, I believe relevant to the record that is corrupted.
