I am considering replacing my Palm Treo 700P with the BB Curve 8330, and have always used MS Outlook as my Desktop Contact Manager. Will BB sync with MS Outlook 2003
Yes, that is currently what I am using.

I am using:
BB Model 8830
Desktop Software 4.7
Outlook 2003 (connected to Exchange 2003 Server, NO BB Server)
Sync problem (repeatedly):
For organizer data, I sync using one way from Outlook to Device initially. I choose ALL items, replace ALL Device data.
Then I set the sync configuration to two-way between Outlook & Device.
When changing one item in each of the calendar, address book, memos, and task list, I attempt to sync again but get a whole slew of items to be changed:
(1) It appears that recurring calendar items do not sync correctly, particularly if the item originated more than a month or two ago. The Desktop software wants to delete calendar items from Outlook. Even after REJECTING the updates, sometimes items are deleted anyway.
(2) Address book changes seem to work, except when only a company exists in Outlook (no first and last name). In these no-name cases, often duplicates are created in both Outlook and the device.
(3) Memos seem to work fine.
(4) Tasks seem to work correctly, unless again, the task is recurring.
Does anyone know where I can find any official documentation from either Microsoft or Blackberry are these difficulties?
