Default Will my Bold 9000 sync to a Yahoo email address AND a google calendar ?

Please Login to Remove!

I use yahoo for my email and calendar. I have just discovered that the latest release of Yahoo calendar is not compatible with Blackberry and it is no longer possible to sync them. I don't want to change my email address so is it possible to sync to a yahoo email address and a google calendar. If it is possible then how do i set it up. If it isn't possible is there another solution.

All help and advice gratefully received.

Google Calendar syncs wirelessly to BlackBerrys even on BIS. I do it and it operates smoothly. Calendar updates happen nearly instantaneously and work both ways.

Once you have GMail set up on your BlackBerry make your GMail calendar the default calendar. Under Options > Advanced Options > Default Services make sure Calendar (CICAL) is set to your GMail address. It's ok if GMail is not your default email address as well.

Then open your Calendar, use the Menu key to select Options and click on the GMail calendar. Check the box for Wireless Synchronization and you're good to go.

Yes, Yahoo can remain your default email address. Best way to set up another email account is to log into your carrier's BIS page and choose Add Email Account or whatever the exact phrasing may be. You can have up to 10 email accounts plus one Exchange account.
