Re: How synch Yahoo Calendar to my Torch 9850?????

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

For non-BES, OTA Calendar Sync is limited to supported email providers...refer to these KBs:

  • KB00561 How to configure wireless calendar synchronization on a BlackBerry smartphone
  • KB24204 How to enable or disable calendar synchronization with an integrated Gmail email account
  • KB24209 What is calendar synchronization with Gmail?

 

For BES, talk to your BES admins.

 

Good luck!

Thanks for that "Welcome"...

 

You did not answer the basic question of can my BB Torch 9850 in fact synch with Yahoo Calendar??  I'm saying it does not!  Is that true?  If I want to see a calendar, are you saying it has to be GMAIL calendar?  Oh - you may have guessed that I'm not a highly tech savvy user.

Re: How synch Yahoo Calendar to my Torch 9850?????

Not being an "insider", I have no way to know 100% which specific services are supported for any specific services...all I have to rely on is the same data available to everyone. Hence, I provide you with information so that you can hopefully find your answer for yourself. For example, at the bottom of the first KB I linked for you, there is the official method to determine the answer.

 

You also could have searched for more KBs that might provide you the specific answer you desire, and that may have resulted in this one:

  • KB03652 Comparing BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry Enterprise Server features

Reading that, your answer is again provided for you.

 

Good luck!

Re: How synch Yahoo Calendar to my Torch 9850?????

Thanks again for the additional help.  I apologize for being such a novice (I actually don't know what a "KB" is...).  Anyway, my read of KB03652 concludes that the Torch synchs fine with Yahoo Mail - but, I gotta switch over to GMAIL Calendar to get a calendar synch.  Thanks again.

Re: How synch Yahoo Calendar to my Torch 9850?????

That's how I interpret it as well (I just can't say for sure from any direct experience since I'm now using Outlook.com to sync calendar/contacts with my Z10, and no longer on a legacy BB via BIS).

BTW...KB = Knowledge Base, the publicly available articles that BlackBerry provides to everyone...searchable, and quite often containing the answers desired.

You are welcome...and good luck!
