You can use Outlook or you can create a gmail account, type your info in on the website (choose calander view), download Google sync to your device and you can wirelessly sync your calendar.

You should open DM > Sync > Configuration and then in those settings find where you match your BB Address Book <<-->>MS Outlook

and BB Calendar <<-->>MS Outlook... etc for tasks and memos.
