CSM software for BB????
I am an ACT! user and recently purchased the Blackberry Pearl 8130. Love it!
EXCEPT, I can't find a simple and reasonably priced CSM program for the Blackberry. I am willing to leave ACT! software behind after 10 years, because I love my BB! My BB replaced my Palm which had ACT! for Palm installed on it.

I tried CompanionLink to sync ACT, but all that does is separately copy my calendar to the BB calendar and contacts into the Blackberry address book software. Once sync'd I cannot clear meetings or calls on the device. Also, I cannot schedule a meeting or call with a contact FROM the address book, OR, schedule a meeting or call with a contact FROM within the calendar. The 2 programs are not linked! I called CompanionLink and they said that is all the program is supposed to do.

I have looked online at GoldMine and others, but these seem pretty over the top (and out of my budget) for me.

All I'm looking for is some integration between the address book and calendar. I do not want a web based system.

Any help would be appreciated!

try looking at the second post there. ACT! should be able to sync with the blackberry directly. welcome to the forums

Yes, ACT 6.0 links with my BB using CompanionLink software, but like I said above, the BB address book and calendar are NOT linked to each other. For example:

If I am looking at a customer in the address book, there is not an option to schedule a meeting, call or to-do.

Likewise, if I am in the calendar program, I cannot highlight a time of day, and schedule a meeting, call or to-do with a contact that is in my address book. I would have to type customer's name in manually, and there wouldn't be a record of the activity in the contact's record.

Thanks, anyway for the help.
