    Question New to site, New to BB

    Advertisement



    Ok guys, I'm going to sound uber noobish here, but I really don't know where else to go. I checked the user guide that came with the BB user tools, but didn't find it particularly helpful.

    Never had a smart phone before, took the plunge and got the BB 8320 (titanium edition of course) I only use the first three letters when I refer to it. Wife hates it.

    Anyway... Tried calling t-mo tech support to ask them to walk me thru this, but they had no ** clue what I was asking or even how to do much more than drool. IMHO that is.

    I'm wanting to set up the calendar on my BB but don't want to use my sausage fingers on itty bitty keys to set everything up. What program do I use on my PC to do this, and then sync it when my BB?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi there and welcome to PinStack .

    There are actually two ways to accomplish this.

    You can use either Google Calendar, or Outlook.

    Do you have a Google account or Outlook on your PC?

    No, I don't use outlook. I'm convinced that it's "random submission of usage statistics" contributed to my receiving lots of spam. I'll create a google account.

    Thanks!

    OK... so now I've got a google account. Once I create the calendar, do I download it to my PC then sync it? or is there a way to do create a calendar offline?

    Ok cool. Go to this link and get the Google Sync app:

    http://www.google.com/mobile/blackberry/sync/index.html

    The rest should be easy from there. Let me know how it goes.

    Found out what my issue was. Apparently I needed to have the data package from t-mo. Even tho I'm on my own network! WTF!?!

    Communists.

    All is well in my neck of the woods. Thanks for all your help!
