    Best calendar software that will sync with an 8100?

    Advertisement



    Recently changed jobs and no longer have MS Business Contact Manager software to use, so I'm looking for something that will sync with my Pearl. My lap top just has basic Office 2003 with out Outlook. I'm thinking of ACT or MS Bussiness Contact Mgr. or just plain old Outlook, but really don't know much about any of them. Oh, and I'm a total know nothing when it comes to computers and setting things up. Currently getting e-mail through AT&T. Thanks!

    OUtlook syncs with your BB through your Desktop Manager...just be sure you erase any Outlook contacts you've previously put in so that your sync goes smoothly...if you have a lot of contacts already inside outlook you can save them in an export file so that you can start fresh then re-import them...hope this helps...post back with results

    Check out GMAIL Gcalendar. I use a program called calendar share and it syncs wirelessly to my GCAL calendar. Real nice and only $20. http://www.saraiya.com/ They have a demo so give it a try.

    I would go with Outlook - you can get Outlook 2003 on eBay for under $50

    edit: Also if you are in the military ($20), or a college student ($60) you can get Office 2007 for very cheap (or Office 2004 if you have Mac).

    Ditto that...Outlook has email, contacts, and calendar and syncs pretty much effortlessly with your Blackberry thru desktop manager.

    Re: Best calender software that will sync with an 8100?

    I've got roughly 525 contacts in my Pearl now that were originally imported from Business Contact Manager and I assume Outlook '07. If I get Outlook '03, will it be an issue importing the .bcm file that I saved before my previous employer zapped my lap top? I know now that I should have saved it as an .csv file, but I only had a couple of hours to do it, and really didn't know what I was doing.

    Thanks!
