Wireless Sync my Outlook Calendar

I ended up updating my Blackberry Bold last night and it changed a lot of the features on my phone, I honestly love the new look and I am happy I upgraded the device however now I cannot sync my outlook calendar no matter what I try to do and it tells me I need to turn off the wireless sync and gives me directions to do so however none of those options are availible anymore... 


Does anyone know how I can sync my Outlook Calendar Wirelessly? Or better yet any info on how I can turn it off so I can sync my calendar the regular way with the usb?

Re: Wireless Sync my Outlook Calendar

Hi StewartJoseph and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


This sounds like you have to change your default Calendar option in your BlackBerry.  You can do so, in BlackBerry 6, under Options>Device>Advanced System Settings>Default Services.  You may have one of your email accounts set to the default, which likely has wireless synchronization enabled.  Change the default calendar to another option then try synchronizing with Outlook again.


On your second question, no, the BlackBerry cannot synchronize wirelessly with Microsoft Outlook unless you are configured on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES).


I hope this helps!

Re: Wireless Sync my Outlook Calendar

I recommend using Office Accelerator Wireless BlackBerry Sync by Baseline Data Systems, Inc.  There sync works great and it comes with a killer contact manager.  Just Google Office Accelerator.
