I'm running Desktop sofware version 7.0 and own a Blackberry 9900 Bold. I run Outlook 2007 on a PC with Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.
I synchronize regularly with Outlook, both contacts and calendar items. I can't get my BBM Group Calendar items to move over to my desktop. I tried making my BBM Group Calendar my default, no luck.
Separately, I tried doing the same thing with Google Calendar. Same problem. Everything moved over to the other calendar except BBM Group Calendar items on my handheld.
Anyone any thoughts/explanation? I have already tried re-installing my desktop software.

Interesting. I don't think this is possible because each bbm group has its own calendar. I don't think these calendars can be chosen as a default service. Even though you can view these calendars from your device, the design behavior is different. I'd love it if someone else could chime in on this.

Interesting, thanks. Perhaps I mis-spoke. My default calendar for entering new appointments is BBM Groups.
it seems as if i'm not the only person having trouble with this (getting BBM Group Calendar items to synchronize). You would think Blackberry would address this head-on. No?

I'm at a loss, I can't find any information on this. Only thing I can think of is that its not a true calendar but acts like one since it originates from the groups. best guess there... Sorry
I'm going to send them a tweet @BlackBerryHelp about this.

yeah, it's a drag. i have given up. One bright note: synchronizing WITHOUT the blackberry software to a google calendar (via google synch) actually works with BBM calendar items. You just get the google app for your blackberry.
I don't get Blackberry. They have this thing that people love (BBM) and they treat it like a dirty family secret. They should be enhancing the hell out of it, but instead they don't address simple problems. If they were REALLY smart, they would do voip over it, or skype-like video calls. Oh, well.
