    Tasks syncing busted and Events generating multiple alarms

    Advertisement



    Ugh. This is so frustrating. It really feels like they let an app that is still in Beta out the the door and as my first experience with a balckberry I can't say I'm super psyched.

    Tasks --
    The syncing of Tasks flat out doesn't work. Non of my iCal todos show up but what does show up is EVERY SINGLE EVENT I have my calendar as a "Task".

    Event Alarms --
    For some reason after I sync, I now get 2-3 alerts/iCal alarm for an event that only had 1 scheduled.

    Do others share these problems?

    Anyone found a solution? I've tried the purging, etc... utilities and the crappy part about those is that after they have been run and I go to change my syncing prefs in PocketMac, it no longer pulls in my Calendars (in Calendar or Tasks).

    Any help would be awesome.

    Thanks!

    Actually, in the pre-amble of the PocketMac install for version 4 from RIM, it did state that iCal and 'to-do's would not sync correctly.

    Did you read the warning and licence agreement?

    The first step in the installer? I did indeed. Nothing in there mentions these issues. It refers to the reminder time on tasks being off and repeating iCal entries being off.

    This issue is neither of those. Please let me know if I missed it somewhere else.

    Didn't mean to be presumptuous. Usually many people don't read that stuff.

    I don't think I would be able to find a solution.

    I'm on BES, and it's not necessary for me to sync with my Mac. I just use it for testing and helping others with the basics.

    Perhaps someone else can make a suggestion?
