    Shared calendar question

    Advertisement



    I have a friend that is looking to get BB's for himself and his wife. The problem is that he wants to share a COMMON calendar either on his Local Outlook on his PC at home or via a Gmail/Yahoo mail account

    So my questions are this

    1 - Can you sync 2 BB's to the same Outlook calendar at home ? Meaning if he installs Outlook and DM and manually adds his calendar entires to it can he sync both phones

    or

    2 - would it be easier to create a general internet based email account and sync both BB's to it.....can you have to BB's access the same internet based email account ?

    i am pretty sure either would work just fine...you should be able to sync more than 1 phone to the same calendar

    Wouldn't that require them to have the same e-mail address coming to their devices? In order for the sync to work, the default e-mail address needs to be set to whatever the Outlook e-mail address is, does it not?

    yes...so option 2 should work for them...they just set up an e-mail address in outlook that they both can log into and should be able to sync

    that is where I am confused...so I suggested creating a shared internet based email account and then add it to both BB's....this way the calendar sync's to both BB's

    I just dont know if you can sync 2 BB's to the same internet based email account

    You absolutely can do this with blackberry unite, in fact, that is exactly what unite is designed for (families or small businesses with no more than 5 users). Check it out!
