the contacts will synch but not the calendar, all contacts now have first and last names....what else is there to do to solve it ?
I'm finding working with BB about as enjoyable as working with Microsoft when trying to resolve issues.....they're just too helpful, should have gone Apple

What characters are considered invalid ? Can the company field not be left blank (as all mine are) in all company fields ? Also are you talking about changing the contacts in Outlook or on the BLackberry to resolve the issue ?

I hope that the comments about Microsoft were not directed to this board. We are just users like your self, trying to help.
I went by error code, not actual function, my fault I gave you the wrong article. Just FYI an invalid addressbook record can be caused
by an invalid character or symbol in the name, or a corrupt picture associated with a contact.
Since you are syncing everything but your calendar. Lets clean the device calendar and retry.
This is the link for clearing your device calendar and resyncing. DO NOT turn on wireless sync, that is for a server.
Please let me know how it goes. I have our post set to email me, when you respond.

The comments about Microsoft are directed to RIM.
Anyway I'm afraid it doesn;t work. I am using a BB Bod 9000 and 4.6 software and some of the procedure I can't follow click Configure PIM....what's PIM, I have no such option?...........thanks for your help but this is driving me insane

PIM is the Personal information Manager i.e. Outlook.
Configure sync like before.
Here is the manual:

Just received my new STORM 9500 from Vodafone (thank you!). However I cannot believe that a company as forward thinking as RIM can release the thing on to the market with software that doesn't sync with Outlook out of the box. I have had most business phones available and even sold on the dreadful new Sony X1 Experia because of poor operation (mainly WM 6.1) However as bad as that was, at least it was a piece of cake to get the thing to Sync. My Nokia (In fact any Nokia) I have owned is also plug and play when it comes to syncing between the phone and the PC using Outlook.
I hope Voda get a barrage of calls about the problem and release an update where it does not require the user to plough through their contacts database in Outlook looking for "suspect" entries that worked 100% with most other phones offered for synchronization.
Other wise so far a brilliant device but please get the basics right.

The desktop software most certainly synchs with Outlook as well as many other desktop managers.
As in any software installation with multiple combinations of hardware and operating systems,
there are bound to be problems. However, the majority of the users backup and synchronize daily without error.
In addition, corrupt records have always been, and will always be a fact of life in the computing industry.
Especially when they are constantly manipulated and updated as are contacts, calendar entries etc.
As you've only just been a member for an hour, your opinion may change as you read the threads and have
a better idea of how the device and supporting systems work.
That being said, are you having a problem with your desktop software or device? Just open a thread
in the 9500 forum and we can help you out.
