Synch Torch 9000 Organizer data with Yahoo!

About 6 months ago, I updated the Desktop Software for my Torch 9000 (AT&T Service).  After that, my Desktop stopped synching Contacts with my Yahoo! Mail and  (the Calender, Tasks, and Memos never synched all that well).


When I went into the Organizer function, not only did in not provide me with Yahoo! as an option to synch to, the ONLY option it gave me was Windows Contacts/Windows Live Mail. 


I couldn't find a way undo the update and, since I've installed subsequent updates, I don't think I can't go back there now.


I can synch my Yahoo contacts with Windows Contacts, and then synch Windows Contacts with my Torch.  That's a stupid way to go about it but I have no other options at this point.


Is there anything else I can do to get my BBerry back talking to Yahoo!  Contacts for sure, but I'll take Calender, Tasks and Memos, too....if there's an answer.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


Please refer to this:

  • KB12268Synchronization support for BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows

It would seem that you updated the Desktop Software to a level that no longer supports what you desire. If you require that compatibility, then you must fall back the Desktop Software to a version that supports what you require. You can obtain older versions here:

Good luck!
