Unhappy Multiple Calendar Sync Outlook/Gmail

Please Login to Remove!

I have an attorney who has a Blackberry Torch that recently put a Gmail account on the phone. She has it set in the BIS that it will sync her calendar, contacts and deleted items. Now she wants to sync her Work Calendar which is from Outlook 2007 to her phone using the Blackberry Desktop Software. When she tries to change the calendar options, the software states she is currently syncing wirelessly with gmail and can't sync with Outlook unless she turns off the wireless sync. Is there a way to have both calendars on her phone? A personal and work calendar? I'm aware of the program that syncs your Outlook Calendar to Gmail's but that deletes older entries and we can not have that. Also from what I remember the Google Sync for Blackberry also only lets you keep appointments up to 4 weeks in the past. All entries in the calendar must stay. I need a way to sync both calendars. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Once GMail sync is enabled that's the only protocol the BlackBerry will use to sync calendar/contacts. She must first disable the GMail sync via Setup before she can sync another way.

It's a BIS Account

Why is there that limitation? You are allowed to have multiple calendars on the phone. Why can't the phone sync each one from a different source?

We will be shortly moving to exchange. Will it work then?

Someone on the Google Forums posted this as a fix.

I have never been sure about those rules so my actual calendar settings are "Keep forever" and the one set date in every month that I use to test is my wife's payday which comes in from her calendar which is shared to mine (only other date that is set is her birthday) and I can go back three years and see these. If the Outlook calendar has it's own address (tie another account to it) you can use the Blackberry email system to sync it separately (my first answer gave the clue.

Went back in my Google Calendar and although the events for say July 2010 were not shown on the weekly/monthly view choosing the Agenda view showed everything for the month. A month further back were entries for events I could not remember so the real governing factor is probably the amount of memory available. Checked the Blackberry Agenda view and it was identical.

Nice test though as I got my phone in December 2010 which means I have dates back before the sync was possible (I know because my next upgrade will be in time for Blackberry 10). I will have to investigate further when I have time as these could have been brought over with the Desktop Manager.

It's no a workaround to use what is built in.

Will this work?
