Sync Calendar from PC to PlayBook

I am new- not sure exactly how to do this. My BB Curve is not even synced to the PC -- I downloaded the BlackBerry Desktop software but it is not obvious to me how I do this.

Re: Sync Calendar from PC to PlayBook

The Playbook essentially reads the calendar information from your Curve via Blackberry Bridge. Simply connect you Curve to the PC, sync calendars, then open the Bridge Calendar app on the Playbook (you will need to pair the Curve and Playbook if you have not already done so). Same goes for contacts.

Thanks for the simple instructions. I did the PC to Curve part and will attempt the Curve to PB bridge -- I have that all setup already.

Re: Sync Calendar from PC to PlayBook

What about when I want to transfer docs from my OC to the Tablet -- Is it best to simply send via email?

Re: Sync Calendar from PC to PlayBook

You can e-mail them to yourself, transfer over USB/Wifi, or use a file sharing service such as Box, etc.  (Personally, I use the free Box service that you can download from BB AppWorld and it works quite well.)

DropBox works well also, you will need a diff app on playbook for it. There is a file manager app with dropbox access.
