Default Too much info! help!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I'm such a newby I don't even have a blackberry yet, so perhaps you can help me make the right choice. I expect to get a 9900, I'm with vodafone, and I'll use it mainly for email, calendar and contacts, plus a little web.

At present I use a nokia and a convoluted system of (wireless) syncing to my desktop (outlook 2007) using gmail and google calendar as intermediary.

Can I do this more efficiently with BB? Is it something inbuilt into the system or a third party software solution?

and to paraphrase Rumsfeld.. what don't I know that I don't know?

At this stage of things any advice will be gratefully received.

Thanks,

Peter

You will need a Blackberry data plan or bolt-on for email and web.

You can easily wirelessly sync google contacts and calendar via GoogleSync or using the sync in your BIS account once you set it up. I use Google Calendar exclusively and have my BB, Nokia 900, MacBook and Windows desktop all sync to it.

Beyond Dubdub's suggestions I would do some reading on this site and the blackberry site for more info.
The Blackberry is an excellent device but not everyone likes the phone over other types of cell phones. I think most on this site may be a bit predigest. I have two.

If you use Google, please heavily consider Android.
