Trying to Sync two BB Storms to each other...

My wife and I each have the BB Storm. I am trying to find a way to sync our Calender and Contacts with one another. She runs her Storm through a Mac, and I run mine through PC. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Smiley Happy

1. It's not going to be easy.

 

2. You both could backup and trade IPD files to restore. Not a great idea.

 

3. You both could sync to the same Google Address book, via Google Apps. Probably the best idea.

 

4. She could sync to Outlook on your PC, and you as well. Probably the easiest way.

Re: Trying to Sync two BB Storms to each other...

Perhaps I am getting confused with the Palm Treo, but is there a way to connect two Storms through bluetooth technology or other "beaming" type of sync? My wife used to use the Treo but the Storm is my first smartphone and I am not sure what can be done on it. Still learning ... and loving most of the things that I have been learning about its capabilities.

My Blackberry Storm has become a useful business tool, but it doesn't keep my office clean. For that, I turn to an outstanding San Diego janitorial services company.

Hi -- if you are trying to sync them, then use the above method.

 

If you are merely trying to send files between, they do have BT and can send/receive files. Here's a procedure:

Awesome! Thank you! She will be thrilled that I can send her music! I wasn't even thinking that, but when I read the other instructions, I realized the possibility. I will most likely just sync our calendars to the same outlook. Thanks again!
