turning off wireless sync

I have been trying to turn off wireless synchronization in my black berry ever since I got it.
When I go to the helpsection in my Blackberry Desktop Software program, it says
1. On you blackberry device, in the calendar application, Contacts application, Tasks application, or Memopad, press the Menu key > Options.
2. If necessary, click a calendar or contact list.
3. Change the wierless synchroization field to NO or clear the wierless synchronization check box.
4. Press the menu key > save.

NONE OF THAT EXIST ON MY BLACKBERRY!
I mean have all the applications but there are NO wireless synchronization check box.
There is NO wierless synchroization field! I can’t find any place where it says wireless synchronization on my blackberry. I can’t synchronize my calendar at all.
This is really horrible, what kind of stupid instructions does blackberry give out?

Has anyone come across this problem and is there a fix for it?

Re: turning off wireless sync

'Ello,

 

I have a BlackBerry Curve 9330 (v6.0.0.524, Platform 4.4.0.438).  After installing the desktop manager software and attempting to synch my device with my pc, I received a notification that I must first turn off the wireless synchronization option on my BlackBerry.  Okay, cool.  But how?

 

Evidently with a headache.  I tried following the directions from Research in Motion.  I tried reading the user manual.  I tried searching the web.  I tried calling BlackBerry's customer service line to get a refund on the past two hours of my life I just wasted.  But all of these attempts were in vain.  You know why?

 

Because there is no "Wireless Synchronization" field, that's why. 

 

I don't know how a company manages to give its customers false instructions or no instructions at all.   I also don't know how I managed to waste yet another hour of my life on my BlackBerry.  But after playing around with  my phone, I figured it out.  And now I will share with you lovely people!

 

So, assuming you already set up an e-mail account to be used with your phone, here's how to wirelessly synch your Blackberry Curve 9330 with Blackberry's desktop software:

 

  1. Go to Messages on your phone.  You can get there by either clicking the yellow envelope icon on the top of your screen or going into your apps and then clicking on the envelope icon.
  2. Once you're there, scroll to the top and click on the date.
  3. Click on Full Menu.
  4. Go to Email Account Management (above Spell Check).
  5. Click on your e-mail address.
  6. Click on Edit.
  7. Scroll down to the bottom and you will see Synchronization Options.  Open it up and uncheck Contacts and Deleted items.
  8. Save.

 

Viola!  After following these steps, I could *finally* sync my BlackBerry with the desktop manager.  Hope this helps!

Wow thank you so much that is utterly amazing lol one thing though…

Between 3 & 4 you should have said click on options from the full menu, that’s where the Email Management is. From there I got it. Thanks for sharing your find and taking the time to post it, and your hard work. I was getting ready to call Blackberry myself.
