Default Local planner software

My company does not support blackberry and I recently got a 7520.

is there aftermarket software that allows me to cable sync (rather than the standard wireless integration)?

What I want to do is be able to use my Lotus notes calendar, contacts and tasks and then cable sync to the computer each day and reconcile handheld with laptop. (this is the method I previously used with a Palm device)

Default got it

Thanks to tips from Jonathon (thanks) I figured it out.

I cabled my BB to my computer with lotus notes open. An option then became available to sync which apps I wanted.

I could have chosen any or all (tasks, calendar, contacts) but chose just the calendar portion which was the important one.

I don't have my contacts in lotus and don't use the Lotus task mode anyway

I was beginning to be mildly concerned that I made a wrong choice but this has cinched my decision that the BB was the way to go!!

Dennis?

You might want to remove your email addy from your sig due to SPAM. The BB has no SPAM filters, so once your addy is "in the wild" you're going to get a LOT of email you may not want.

Just a thought.

Luck.
