I know there are 3rd party ways and other more complicated and totally crazy ways of getting this done. However, that's not what i want. I would like to request that RIM makes Thunderbird an option and not just force me to use MS Outlook. Thanks.

Actually, i believe it's up to RIM to add Thunderbird support. Also, that's why i'm thinking of getting another phone.
Nothing against my BB, i just prefer T-Bird and RIM is forcing me to use Outlook. MS did not make Outlook work with RIM. RIM made Outlook wirk with BB since Outlook is the defacto business email client. RIM needs to understand that business users are adopting other email clients besides Outlook. Also, there are more and more non-business users buying Blackberries everyday.

I too have been waiting in vain for BB to be able to sync with Thunderbird. I hate Outlook and switched to it from Eudora ONLY because of the calendar/contacts sync features when I got the Pearl -which Eudora does not have. I use Tbird at home and would settle for being able to sync the calendar and contacts from work <-> BlackBerry <-> home so I could keep track of every one (and every thing) in one place.
I even suggested this to a friend of mine who works at RIM (I live not too far from their HQ) -they should take the open-source Thunderbird and release their own version with device support -called "BlackBird"? He said it was a great idea and would pass it on, but I don't think Mike L or Jim B got the message yet.
In the meantime I will try the Google Calendar pass-through and see where that gets me. Better than nothing I suppose.
