    question about email and calendar sync

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    Sorry if this has been asked before, I couldn't find exactly what I want.
    My sister and her husband just bought a Verizon Curve 8330. They want to sync email and
    calendar with their aol account and outlook.

    Ok, so they have an aol email account. They access it sometimes through outlook. Also in outlook
    they have a calendar that they keep updated.

    I know they should easily be able to get on the blackberry bis website ( or through the phone)
    and setup an email connection to the aol account on the curve.

    But am I correct in thinking that there is no way for them to sync that outlook calendar with
    the blackberry ?
    If I am, then what is the standard or suggested way to have a decent desktop calendar that
    syncs with the blackberry calendar ?

    Thanks a lot.

    They just need to install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager which is on the cd that came with the phone and configure the sync with outlook's calendar. It works very well for me, I sync my calendar and contacts through Outlook. It's not a wireless sync, must be hooked to the computer and run the desktop manager to perform the sync...

    Oh Duh !!
    Thanks. I should have remembered that. I'm sitting here thinking, hmm, there is no
    exchange server associated with that outlook client, how will it work .....
    Of course, the desktop mgr.

    Thank you !

    Umm, one other question on that please.

    They bought 2 phones. Can they sync both phones up to the same outlook client using the
    same desktop software ? Can they just add each phone to the same software ?


    thanks,

    Yes they can fwellers. The Desktop Manager software will address each individually via their pins
