I have a Blackberry Bold 9900 through T-Mobile. I have been w/BB for a while but have yet to really understand this whole wireless sync stuff. I want my contacts to be updated on my phone, as I make changes to them in my Yahoo. How do I do this? Do I turn off the wireless sync on both my phone and BB Desktop? I consider myself a bit tech-savvy but for some reason this concept just doesn't compute in my head! LOL
Also: I did just update my desktop software to the 7.0 bundle and I have the lastet BB softward update on my phone as well. I believe it is the 7.1.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Depending on your server-side environment, the capabilities are different...see this to start:
If you are on BES (e.g., corporate-owned BB), then you have full OTA (Over The Air) sync as described. But, if you are BIS (e.g., consumer level), then things are different...and some services provide for OTA sync while others do not.
So, with Yahoo, according to that KB, OTA sync is indeed possible for both calendar and contacts. Here's some more reading material for you:
Oh, and since you were unsure, here's some more:
Good luck! Any questions, please be specific about (e.g.,) the KB, the step within the KB, etc.
