Default troubled with calendar synchronisation

Please Login to Remove!


I was wondering if i could get some help here with my BB 8300 curve. I'm not using the Blackberry Application Server but just a normal Desktop one. I have configured it so that it would synchronize the Contacts and Calendars between my outlook and BB phone. However, it encounters a problem while synchronizing the calendars (it passes the Contacts without any problems). it's kinda hanging while transferring 139 out of 300. My question is whether there is a certain kind of format that Blackberry can only accept in terms of calendar synchronisation. In the outlook calendar, there are multiple events on the same days and there are some of single events. Basically whatever you can do with outlook.

Your help would greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Are you using the Blackberry Desktop Manager to sync? I think that is the only application out there to do that.

Could be a corrupt entry. Have you checked the sync logs? I don't recall how to get to them off the top of my head since I don't sync with DM (on BES).

Search calender synch issue in the forums. It's a known issue and has several solutions. The most likely culprit is a recurring event that you have recently made a change to a single event. My example was I made a note in the location field of one event in the series and that when the trouble started. If you can remember the last entry you altered, delete it and reenter the series after a successful synch. Good Luck.
