Calendar and contact doesn't show on Blackberry desktop software

Sorry if there is another thread about that


I'm new with BB but I'm computer literate.

I've a playbook (brand new) with the new OS (2.xx) and the latest Destop software install on Mountain Lion.

I can install the software, the app can see the tablet, but in the application,  I've have music, videos & pictures.

I was expected to see calendars and contact...but no.


How do you sync the contacts and the calendar stored locally on the mac ( no Icloud nor mobileme) if those doesn't appear as options in the BB desktop software?


Thanks for your help

Re: Calendar and contact doesn't show on Blackberry desktop software

Hello frenchguru and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


Thanks for your question on synchronizing your Contacts and Calendar.


Currently the BlackBerry® Desktop Software does not support data synchronization with the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet.


If you have this data in a supported email account, you can use Wireless sync to add this data. See KB30038 for the supported email accounts types.


Hope this answers your question.
