I'm not sure what you mean "quits during synching". I have not had this issue and I've use PD for 5 months.

Mine works flawlessly, thus far. Albeit, I want to know if there is 'extra' battery power being used with it, i.e. if the battery would die quicker?
It will use more battery power depending on how often you set the weather and stocks to update. I don't find that it is a big drain on the battery though.
Ah, ok! I have the weather set from 05:00 - 18:00. I don't use the stock section...
I guess I should look into buying some stocks - LOL
Thanks for the info!
One more thing. I've been sitting here, and from time to time, the backlight on my BlackBerry (8700g) will come on by itself.
No new mail, or calendar reminder, or task. So, what causes that? I thought it was the weather refreshing, but, I've changed it to manual, and it's still doing it. Am sure it's a particular feature, am just not sure what it is...
Nav, In PocketDay, go to Settings/Utility and check to see if "Backlight on Message Receive" is checked. If so, that is what is causing it. It lights up the Backlight when you either send or receive and email. If you want to disable that, just uncheck that box.
Larry, that was checked before I sent the post. I've since unchecked it, and same issue. The only thing checked at present is, 'enable backlight on alarm', 'add pocketday to menu', 'start pocketday on boot', 'listen for sms messages'.
I've searched the PocketDay forum, and don't see anything about this, so I've emailed the support team. I might have to use their 'utility reset' option from there web site. Am just awaiting confirmation before I do this...
Good luck with PD and let me know what they come up with. (I'm assuming you did a BB reset after loading PD?)
That was quick, got a reply from PocketDay, and I quote:

I'll just monitor it closer...
...actually, no. It did not prompt me to. But, I suppose it's good practise. Let me do it now...

Good theory, no?
That would be very nice, however, I'm not sure we have that option. It would be great though. For now we'll have to live with the red LED. :-)
Yeah, you're right, my theory just went out the window. The backlight comes on, maybe every couple of minutes...
I've figured it out! Since my BlackBerry 8700g is connected to our corporate BES server, when I send an email from my Outlook, and PocketDay Personal is running, the backlight comes on, on the BlackBerry!?!
It was getting on my nerves wondering what was causing it. At least I now know. Now to figure how to stop it. I suppose it's doing it because a copy of the sent email is copied to the sent folder on the BlackBerry...
Just go to Settings/Utilities and uncheck "Backlight on Message Receive" and you should be all set Nav.
