Synchronizing BB 9900 with MS Outlook 2011 Mac

Hi Everyone, I just switched to a Mac Book Air with Office 2011 from a Windows 7 with Office 2010 and nothing seems to be working. The BB desktop app doensn't even recognize the Office installation, doesn't syc with apple iCal, Contacts, calendar etc. To say the least it is very frustrating as the guys at the Apple store have no knowledge on this stuff. Anyone has been able to make this work?

Re: Synchronizing BB 9900 with MS Outlook 2011 Mac

Hi cventrillon,


Welcome to the Support Community!

Have you already tried the steps in the following KB article? "How to synchronize organizer data in Microsoft Office for Mac between the BlackBerry smartphone and a Mac computer using BlackBerry Desktop Software" http://bbry.lv/OqK6JE

Are you receiving any error messages when synchronizing with iCal or Apple Contacts? If so, could you please provide the full error? If you are not receiving an error, could you please verify that you have followed the steps in this user guide to setup your synchronization? http://bbry.lv/U4fYHR


Hope this helps.
