That's just plain wrong...I'm w/VZW and have a Pearl, and have been syncing w/outlook since I got the Pearl in November.

As noted, you need to specify what he has done/is doing, and the error messages, the version of Outlook he is using, is it personal (home computer) or work computer (using MS exchange), and confirm you mean Outlook and not Outlook Express (which the BB can not sync with), and which version of Outlook (2003 or 2007).

He should install the BB Desktop Manager, connect the BB to the PC using a USB cable, then launch BB DM, select Synchronize, configure what he wants to sync and go.

At one point there was a problem w/Outlook 2007 and DM 4.3. IF that is the case, he can try DM 4.2 SP1 or SP2 from here:
