Syncing Calendar with Outlook 2010 problems!!!

Hi all,

I am having problems since I chaned my PC to Outlook 2010. My syncs started giving an error about the "default calendar service". Since then I kept switching "default calendar services" between the two e-mail addresses I use in BB, and finally got it right with my default email, which is a gmail address. However, new appointments from BB (which figure in my BB calendar as the service "**@gmail.com") do not sync with my PC. New appointments from my Outlook do sync into my BB and figure in my BB as the calendar service "default". Does anyone even know what I am talking about? Calendar default services, and the miscommunication between the default calendar service BB uses for new appointments ("**@gmail.com"), and the service Outlook is attempting to sync with ("default")? Thanks!

Hi ToriOM,


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.

If you change the default calendar to your Gmail® calendar, are you able to synchronize those appointments? Do you have wireless synchronization enabled for your Gmail® calendar? If so, the wireless synchronization would have to be disabled in your calendar options in order to synchronize via USB cable. This KB article provides more information. "What is calendar synchronization with Gmail?" http://bbry.lv/Hv63Rt


Only the calendar that is set as the default on your BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700 smartphone will synchronize with Microsoft® Outlook®. If you wish to synchronize both calendars with Microsoft® Outlook® you can merge the two calendars on your BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700 smartphone into one by following the steps in this KB article. "How to merge multiple calendars into one calendar on the BlackBerry smartphone" http://bbry.lv/JTcocQ


Hope this helps.
