VISTA Calendar Sync POSSIBLE?

Hello everyone:

 

I have a BB Curve, 8310 upgraded, updated, love it.  My PC is a Dell 1721 AMD 64X2 32-bit laptop running Vista Home Prem. SP1. I am also using Desktop Mgr 4.6. When I purchased my computer I also grabbed the MS Office 2007 Student.  So, the only email and calendar I have came with VISTA not with OFFICE.  I have been using both.  My email will sync with my BB but my calendar won't.  From what I understand I need to be using Office's Outlook (among many) which INCLUDES it's own calendar - which I dont have.  My question is, is there any way I can use my Windows Calendar to sync with my BB calendar?  If not, is there a 3rd party calendar that will run easily on both?

 

Thanks!

Guru I

Re: VISTA Calendar Sync POSSIBLE?

hello,

you can't sync the windows Calendar with the BB Calendar. You'll have to go through a third party calendar, like Google Calendar.
1) sync win cal with gcal
2) sync gcal with bbcal with Google Mobile Sync.

Xandrex, Thanks for the info. I think it would be easier to continue to use the old datebook/planner or go all out and just purchase Outlook. I was really afraid u would say that. Thanks anyway. David
