I have spent most of the day trying all of the suggested ways to get my new Q10 to sync with ical on my mac and I am getting no where.
Setting up icloud initially works for my email and my contacts. I have then tried to set up ical manually using the advise on the blackberry website but I am still being told that the server does not recognise my account details. They are 100% correct. I am using my apple id and my email@example.com email address.
Does anyone know of a way to get around this. The forums seem to have mixed success, some getitng all three services first time and some never getting ical.
Any help appreicated.

As of today, May 31st, the link you recommmend is now a dead link.
Has anyone successfully synced the new Q or Z models running OS 10.1 to Apples iCloud and iCal calender?
This is a deal breaker for mem and an iphone sale for Apple. Since google dropped Blackberry syncing it has been over a year that people on Macs have had ability to sync their devices. IN this connected world, this is an absolute must have.
Thank you .

its still not working, BUT i have transferred everythign from ical to my google acct, and its syncing flawlessly. i am not going to get stuck in the loop of apple controlling my life. there are other alternatives that work instead of ical people.

Hey pal did you really have to go back to iphone. I like the blackberry but if I cant sync the ical its also useless to me. Its a function I use all the time.
EMail me back firstname.lastname@example.org

I too used to sync my calender this way - but then i thought Google stopped syncing with iCal - so i assume there there is no way to do a regular calander syncing between a blackberry calander and a google calader?
Thanks....I continue to be shocked to think that Blackberry would think no creatives ( who are mostly on Macs and living with ICal) would want a syncing ability.
I have ordered my q10 - but i have clearley marekd - in my ICAL calander - when the 14 day trial expires - no sync with a Mac - and i too am going to iphone.

yes it syncs ical to google, google to ical flawlessly. you can edit either.
on iCal, click Preferences > Accounts, hit the + sign, choose google and go from there.
and trust me, you will NOT be going back to the iphone. i should also mention syncing ical with BB10 used to work, until end of may. something happened, and it stopped syncing. BB is aware of the issue.
