My Device: qualcomm 8530
My Carrier: verizon

iCal sync- alert says will delete all past entries- Yes, I have my Keep Appointments set to "forever" AND I've tried changing the date range in desktop mgr- HELP

I just did the update for the software on the 8530.  This is a new problem since the update.  I cannot lose my old entries, so I am unable to sync at all now until Blackberry addresses this bug.


I have read through all of the "fixes" but none of them work.


My Keep Appointments setting has always (and I verified is still) set to "forever"


I went into the advance settings on the MAC desktop software from Blackberry and tried changing the date range to the suggested 14 days past and 365 days future.  I even tried changing the past days parameter to "1" in hopes it would simply ignore old entries... It still wants to delete 435 past entries.


I have to keep these.


Help, Blackberry!  Your "update" to the software is overriding my settings and has made the sync function unusable.
