Hi everyone! If anyone out there can help me solve my problem, I will be forever grateful!
My problems started happening a few weeks back out of the blue. I had not changed any settings, so they seemed out of nowhere.
The first problem is that the Outlook Calendar events I have on my MS Outlook are not making their way over to the device (BB 8330). I have selected two way sync and for all items to be synced in the configuration. The address book sync seems to work, but the calendar is not. I can't tell what I'm doing wrong. I uninstalled the software and downloaded the most recent version, and that didn't help.
Also, when I look at my device, there are times it seems as though it is about to start syncronizing, and then it quits. It's sporadic for some odd reason.
When I connect the device through the USB port, the device acts as though it's about to sync, but nothing happens with the Desktop manager. I have it selected to automatically sync when the device connects, but in order to run the sync process, I have to hit the syncronize button. I'm really scratching my head here.
Is there more information I should provide to be more helpful with troubleshooting?
Oh, and when I view the log, it only shows that my memo pad was sycned. What???

Not sure of the details, but I read on another web page that Facebook app may be the problem. I just deleted the facebook app off my blackberry and re-synced and sure enough it resolved the calendar issues. At this point I can live without facebook, but not important calendar details.

Very interesting about the Facebook app - I have on one my BlackBerry, but I use it all the time. SO...
I found a workaround. I'm now using Google Calendar to sync with both my Outlook calendar on my laptop AND my BlackBerry. I actually like it better than using the Desktop Manager software, because I'm now also using a netbook for when I travel, and it doesn't have room for the full Outlook. I can go online and add an event to the Google Calendar, and it will sync both my laptop and my Blackberry. Since the problem I described originally really had to do with the calendar not synchronizing.
I still use the Desktop Manager to sync my contacts and notes. Google doesn't seem to have a sync application that handles contacts. You can import contacts, but I didn't see a sync app.

The Blackberry needs to use its default CICAL. On your Blackberry goto OPTIONS/ADVANCED OPTIONS/SERVICE BOOK then delete all CICAL entries. Do not delete CMIME (this is req'd for e-mail)
Resync and problems should be solved i.e. appointments on Blackberry will be in Outlook & vice-versa

My Problem is syncing my device with Yahoo.com. When I am syncing the calendar and contacts I get a lost contact so I am not sure the problem but I know my calendar on Yahoo and my calendar on my BB are not syncing.
I am using Desktop version 22.214.171.124 and have a bb curve 8530
