    Please help me sync Storm calendar w/ desktop

    Advertisement



    How do I go about syncing my bb storm calendar with a desktop calendar...like outlook or something else. Also, what's a good desktop calendar software program? Here's what I want to do: I want to be able to enter appts on my laptop..things that I already know about...and be able to plug in my bb and have those show up on the phone too. Also, I want to be able to enter things into my bb as they come up and then sync with the desktop calendar, then being able to print out a schedule.

    Thanks

    Thanks so much! I'm going to go with outlook, but I'm pretty clueless as to how. I'm good with directions, though, if anyone can offer any help.

    Thanks!!

    You will need Desktop Manager to get you started. If you dont have it, download 4.6 HERE

    Then you will need to configure your sync to Outlook. Once you have installed DM click on Synchronize, then Configure Synchronization, and follow the set up screens. Let us know if you need additional help.

    First, make sure Desktop Manager is installed on your PC, as well as Outlook.

    Connect your phone to your PC
    Open Desktop Manager
    Select Synchronize
    Select Configure/Synchronization on the left side
    Click the Sychronization button on the right side
    Click Calendar (and the other apps you want to configure)
    Click Advanced
    Click Conflict Resolution and set it how you prefer (e.g. phone overwrites laptop, vice versa, keep both etc).

    Then, once you have data in the phone calendar and/or Outlook, run the synchronize operation.

    Good luck and everyone is here to help.

    Here are step by step directions from the Blackberry Tech website:

    Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
    • Click Synchronize.
    • Click the Synchronization link on the left side of the screen, and then click theSynchronization button.
    • Select a BlackBerry smartphone organizer application and click Setup.
    • Select a desktop organizer application and click Next.
    • Select synchronization options and click Next.
    • If applicable, select Microsoft® Outlook® options and click Next.
    • Click Finish.
    • Repeat steps 4 to 8 for the remaining BlackBerry smartphone organizer applications.
    • Click OK to close the Device applicationwindow.
    • Click the Synchronize link on the left side of the screen, and click the Synchronize button.
