blackberry and calendar...

Hi guys,


i've got my new BB bold 9700 yesterday Smiley Happy


i'm using thunderbird with lightning as calendar add on. The .ics files are on my external FTP server, to have the same calendar on my PC and my notebook. so well, and now my problems are starting, how can i sync/import the iCal files from the ftp server into my bb calendar? is it possible - actually? the second thing i tried was to sync the bb with thunderbird lightning, but i haven't found a tool to handle that...


i found serveral tutorials to sync thunderbird with google and google calendar with bb, but thats the worst solution for me. i would switch to outlook 2007 before using google calendar.


i hope u guys have some good answeres for me Smiley Happy


greets from a rainy austria!
