    Stupid question re: syncing

    Advertisement



    It's been a while since I've asked a stupid question and I've had my first BB about 6 months now -- so it's time, LOL.

    Here's my question -- my calender "syncs" wirelessly (my assistant schedules a meeting on her desktop and the meeting appears in my calender on my BB). And of course my e-mail is mirror image as well.

    Is there a reason, or do I need to be "syncing" between my laptop and my BB? I was given a cable that connects the two, but I do not know if I should be doing this or how to do this. I don't have an incon or anything like that to initiate the sync.

    Thank you and please take it easy on the Tech Idiot, LOL.

    lol Your intros are the best.

    If you are on BES all this is done over the air (OTA). your profile says your on BES.

    I my case my calendar, email, memo pad, tasks, etc are all sync OTA i never plug into my work pc. Charge on non corp laptop.

    Howdy TI,

    Hope all is well. Do you have DM installed on your laptop? You'll need DM in order to use the USB cable to sync your device. Also, you can check and make sure wireless sync is enabled. = ) Hope this helps.

    Re: Stupid question re: syncing

    I have often thought about whether it was possible to sync my BB with my calendar on Outlook. Is it possible? I have the Desktop manager installed, and have even backed up, and used it to install applications. How do I get it to sync with Outlook if it is possible. (email is not important, as I have it poll and or forward email from gmail directly to the bb)

    Actually, my mistake. Yes, I have DM installed. I lost the icon on my "too busy" desktop. Kind of forgot about it. My sync'ing is taking place wirelessly, but I wasn't sure if the cable/BB sync was the same, needed, etc. -- thanks.
