Wireless Synchronization with Yahoo or Google?

Hi Everyone,

 

Does anyone know if it is possible to sync wirelessly with Yahoo Calendar/Contacts or Google Calendar/Contacts?  It would really be nice if when I add an appointment on my BB that it would sync up to my Yahoo Calendar without having to hook the BB up to my laptop.  My email is reconciled with Yahoo so I thought there might be a way for the Calendars to reconcile too.

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Wireless Synchronization with Yahoo or Google?

Hello and thank you for the information.

 

Can you tell me how to set up the BB and Yahoo Calendar to sync wirelessly?

 

Currently, I can only sync up with Yahoo if I connect my BB and my laptop and then launch the Blackberry Desktop Manager.  I looked at Yahoo's Calendar options and could not find any instructions on how to set up a wireless syncronization.

 

Thank you for any help and guidance.

There are 10 kinds of people: those who understand binary numbers and those who don't.

I exported my contacts and calendar from Outlook to a .CSV file. Then, I imported the .CSV files into Yahoo.

  Currently, there is no way to WIRELESS sync your Yahoo calendar with your BB. 

 

   You can sync them but they require cables.
