Hi all, just found this thread, I think allot of it has been answered, but this is my experience.
1. Turned off blackberry password. I have set-up my blackberry with no password, I found that with a password enabled, it keeped asking for the password on my windows box. This does make it insecure but the auto sync out weights the security issues.
2. Enabled auto sync on desktop manager and disabled "Confirm record changes and additions" in calender advanced options. This means that I get no confirmation dialogue when it is adding new items to the blackberry. Again a bit of a risk. I did not disable "Confirm record deletions". I felt that was going a bit far.
3. Change auto backup to every 3 days, instead of every 1 day. This gives me 3 days of auto sync without user intervention.
4. Keep bluetooth active all the time. I know, a bad idea but again auto sync is cool.
This does assume that you have 4.1 desktop manager and 4.1 of the device firmware (4.1 7290 in my case)
What I have now:
When I get a new meeting in my outlook calendar, the next time I go away from my desk and return my blackberry picks up the meeting and places it into the calender without me having to do a anything. Also when I com in first thing in the morning, my blackberry auto syncs.
The down side is that I have to go away from my desk (about 60 foot) for it to auto re-sync. Or I just press teh re-sync button. No having to mess with cables.
