Outlook synchronisation: what smart-alec developer decided USB cables were old hat?

I've been trawling the internet/this forum to see if BlackBerry have condescended to come up with a way of allowing those of us who want to synchronise Outlook Contacts/Calendars with a Z10 to do so (as I've been doing with my boss's BlackBerries over the past few years).

 

Unless I've missed a new development over the past few days, short of moving a load of sensitive data into the cloud, it just doesn't seem to be possible.

 

Nor does it seem to be possible to contact BlackBerry direct about this: couldn't find a phone number or a support email address. The only method they seem to deign to communicate through is Twitter, which I have no intention of signing up to.

 

The only people I could speak to about the issue was Vodafone, whose impression was that BlackBerry aren't going to bother to come up with a solution as wires and cables are old hat.

 

We are currently considering whether or not to return the Z10. Certainly, any good feeling I might have had towards BlackBerry has totally dissipated.

WOW! Thank you for the link.  I was ready to leave BBRY in the dust.  My company, and it's a very small one, only uses BBRY handsets and MS Outlook.  I was shocked when I first read BBRY was forcing us to the cloud.  SHOCKED.  Okay, too much drama.  I was really pizzed and figured enough. 

 

Thanks again for the link.  My faith in BBRY customer service is restored!

 

Regards,  Bob
