New Desktop Manager is Synching All My Calendars .. please make it stop

I am self employed.  I have a lot of personal reminders on my handheld deviice and up until this current desktop manager version, I was able to only sync my default calendar which was my business one.

 

Now, with this new version, it seems to be synching, BBM, facebook, all 4 of my organizers and has made a congested mess of everything.

 

Is there a way to only sync one organizer, that is my DEFAULT organizer with outlook 7 using the new destop software?

 

I really appreciate any assistance provided.

Hi DrFever,

 

The BlackBerry® Desktop Software synchronizing all calendars on the BlackBerry® smartphone and not the default calendar only is by design in BlackBerry® 7 and cannot be modified. Please see the following KB article. "All calendars on the BlackBerry smartphone synchronize to Outlook using BlackBerry Desktop Software" http://bbry.lv/PsyIMO

 

Thanks.

Re: New Desktop Manager is Synching All My Calendars .. please make it stop

I have a device running OS7.1 and it is not true that it is not configurable.

You configure BB Desktop Software to synch with specific calendars in your apps (outlook, outlook express, etc) look at the advanced settings when you set up sync. Whatever you decide to sync, syncs to the default on your bb device.

 

However you have to be careful when installing applications and setting up to receive e-mails on your bb device. The Facebook app defaults to sync with calendar and contacts. You need to manually turn that off. Also when setting up your internet e-mail (gmail, yahoo, hotmail, etc.) you have to make sure calendar(if available for example in gmail) and contacts are not syncronized. They are by default, you have to look at the settings and customize so they are not when you set them up, or edit them if you already have them set up.

Sorry i misunderstood your problem. I thought you had things you did not want on your BB. But reading again I see that you don't want all from your BB on your computer.
In this case there is no way to control it.
