I have a Blackberry 9600 and it is saying that I can't sync my handset with
Microsoft Outlook because both my Calendar and my Contacts say they are
being synced wirelessly.
However, when I look on my device nowhere is the wireless Synchronization to
be found to switch it off, despite trying to follow these instructions :
Turn off wireless synchronization
To synchronize your organizer data, you must turn off wireless
synchronization for each type of organizer data that you want to synchronize
using the Blackberry Desktop Software.
1. On your Blackberry device, in the Calendar application, Contacts
application, Tasks application, or MemoPad, press the Menu key > Options.
Doesn't exist on my device software!!!!
2. If necessary, click a calendar or contact list.
3. Change the Wireless Synchronization field to No or clear the Wireless
Synchronization check box.
4. Press the Menu key > Save.
I've tried to find this function Numerous times! How do I switch the darn thing off - I despair, my business
life is being totally messed up as nothing vital can be transferred.
Please do NOT tell me to follow the instructions above !
Thank you fellow sufferes. x

Thanks fixandtweak this was the best I found to solve this problem. I noted a few differences for my torch here is what I did. I realize now my problem started when I added a gmail account to my device and it somehow ended up with the contacts box for wireles sync checked. Here's what I did (which I never would have figured out without your note). I presume this would work to turn off calendar and tasks sync as well, although that was not my problem.

Thanks again fixandtweak for getting me to this point.
I think the real solution was that I should have bought an I Phone!!!
