    8300/Curve and PocketMac with Now software

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    From what I gather, looking at other threads here, this is not an original problem. I have a new 8300 which I am attempting to syncronize with Now Up-to-date and Now Contact. I have some intermittant success, but still nothing reliable.
    The first sync worked for everything except my calendar. Since then, I have been able to run a sync on most of the conduits, but never the calendar. I was also able to sync back to the mac iCal application.
    I have just switched over from a Palm650 which I kept in sync using Missing Sync. Obviously Missing Sync does not support Now software for BB.
    Is there any workaround? I am frustrated with trying again and again to get the connection. I have tried the various tricks of syncing one conduit at a time, but that does not help the calendar sync.
    I have also tried contacting tech support with this problem, but there is no reply. Does PocketMac still support this now that it has been purchased by RIM?
    Thanks for any and all advice!

    I've sent dozens of emails to them over the past 4 or 5 years (different problems with different platforms/programs) and have never received a response other than the automated "we have received you inquiry" email.

    In my eyes they offer support but they don't give it.

    Thanks,
    None of the stuff listed on theappleblog seems to help. I have tried loading the software, then connecting the 8300, then syncing, to no avail.
    One thing I did notice was that the manager that handles syncing the Now Calendar was loading then quitting rather quickly. A glance at the PMSystem report suggests that the manager is crashing upon loading (the manager called NowRIMCalendar). I had a look at the crash log for that manager and see that it is indeed crashing on startup.
    I am in contact with someone at PocketMac. I have not yet heard back on this latest round. I will post something here if it seems useful.
    Thanks and any suggestions are welcome.

    Hi,
    I finally heard back from PocketMac.
    They are aware that there is a problem with Now Calendar. They say they are fixing it in the next release.
    At least I know not to waste my time trying to get it to work.

    Re: 8300/Curve and PocketMac with Now software

    So I have given up on PocketMac.
    Since I needed to use iCal and Address anyway, I decided to buy MissingSync. I had used MissingSync with my Treo650, and it worked flawlessly.
    It took me a long and convoluted route to export everything from my Now Calendar to iCal (I can write that down if anyone would find it useful). Now I am busy syncing everything into my BB via Missing Sync. There are no more problems with pugging in the device in exactly the right order. Everything seems to be working as it should, so far.
    I will update this as I learn more.
