Wirelessly sync Yahoo Calendar & Yahoo Contacts with Blackberry Bold 9700

I want to wirelessly sync my Yahoo contacts & calendar with my Blackberry Bold.  I have attempted to do this for the calendar via Gmail using instructions posted to do so.    The calendar syncs the first time, but changes afterwards are not reflected - in either direction. 

 

Does anyone know how to successfully sync the Blackberry Bold 9700 calendar & contacts with Yahoo calendar & contacts?

Re: Wirelessly sync Yahoo Calendar & Yahoo Contacts with Blackberry Bold 9700

Here is some additional information from Yahoo about this issue.  In summary, I have decided to stop using Yahoo and switch to Google (gmail and calendar).  I have done so and it works GREAT!  Wireless syncing of e-mail, contacts and calendar.  Also, I was able to setup Yahoo to forward all e-mail to Google and to transfer my historical calendar, contacts & e-mail.

 

Here is what Yahoo stated when I asked about syncing with the Blackberry Bold:

Re: Wirelessly sync Yahoo Calendar & Yahoo Contacts with Blackberry 8520

For the life of me I cannot get this to work or find a link to fix it.

 

Ideally I would have liked a bluetooth sync via MAC to BB but ease of use doesnt seem to be in RIM's vocabulary.

 

Intellisync syncs contacts via bluetooth on PC or wire but cant sync the calendar and it get the "conection to yahoo server was lost" error

 

I have tried changing the mapping but no luck.

 

I have the missing sync on MAC and it seems to work fine on my Mac, but I cant get the PC version to work properly with Yahoo.

 

 

Is this a yahoo or blackberry problem?

 

Either way I would like it fixed.

 

As well the BB OSX version of desktop manager should have a bluetooth sync attached to the software.

 

Yahoo get the sync out for bb and bb make yahoo get the sync released!
