Odd (and new) sync behavior

When attempting to sync my BB Curve with Outlook today I had two problems that I haven't seen before.  I'm using Desktop software  I have several entries where husband and wife are entered in Outlook as "Jim & Betty Smith" and filed as "Smith, Jim & Betty." Previously BBDT has synced fine with the device and the entries are on the device as "Smith, Jim & Betty."  Just today BBDT wants to sync these to the device as Last name - "Smith", First name - "Jim", Middle name "&".  Another problem I have not had previously is with appointments that were deleted in Outlook.  BBDT now wants to copy those back from the device to Outlook.  It won't let me choose which appointments to sync - it's all or nothing.

Re: Odd (and new) sync behavior

Hey Fishcad,


Do you have more than one contact list on the BlackBerry smartphone? Go into  contacts options and here you'll see contact lists. If you do have more than one contact list check your default contacts list, from the home screen select Options > Advanced Options > Default services, is the correct contact list selected?
