Default Best Calandar

Please Login to Remove!

Is the Calandar that comes with the BB the best there is. I know of Pocketday, but I'm looking for more of a Calandar that you can put you appointments in.

Is there a reason why you cant put appointments in the existing calendar?

I've stated this before but I feel that the existing calendar is lacking.

It's not going to be rewritten. Do yourself a favour. Ensure you have the latest OS upgrade, as this is where your calendar upgrades will come from.

Other than that, if you don't like the calendar.. either wait for Rim to release a new one, or switch.

But the RIM calendar is just fine so as long as you get 'used' to how it works. Technically it's supposed to be a mobile version of your Outlook (or Notes, etc) calendar, not a fully featured Outlook client..

Hmm that didn't seem too nice.

It may be just fine to you. But for some of us Palm OS converts the calendar is lacking.

Well, what do you want to say? There are NO third party calendar, contact, or e-mail software for the blackberry. None, zero. Zilch. I don't expect any soon either..

Rim has this locked down. Rim won't release the API to allow this to happen.

I also felt the calendar 'lacked' in ways, especially from the Palm realm but i'm used to it now. There are other benefits to the Blackberry that so far, to me, outweigh the lack of polish, look and feel to the Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks..

having said that, I feel strongly that the next Blackberry operating system (Version 5.0) will probably contain major UI enhancements and improvements to the calendar, especially. If you can wait.. you just might like it.

That could very well be true. I guess I need more of a PDA from my device than a phone or e-mail. As I use my blackberry for personal use the e-mail is not absolutely crucial but it is convenient.

I see. Well good luck choosing. My blackberry is simply a copy of my Outlook.. and does a good job of it. I'm sold on Blackberry for the connectivity, not the PDA portion. =) But i use the PDA to it's full potential wherever possible..
