Angry calendar deleted?!

Please Login to Remove!

So I setup a new email on my blackberry today (cingular.com/blackberrystart) and when I resent the service books, my blackberry froze and said something about my calendar as I was trying to scroll to my messages (the Congratulations Activation message) and then it said that my calendar was deleted externally and that my device would be reset!

what the heck happened?! I lost all of my calendar entries!

I'm beginning to think that this is the most unhelpful/friendliest board ever. I posted something yesterday about pop3 email on the BIS (found a solution elsewhere - not on this site anyways) and no one bothered to reply back to it with any help at all. Yet it has 58 views but not one single person could answer?

and this thread is getting bumped down, but has views as well, just no one can seem to respond.

so when someone needs help, this is what happens? I'd go elsewhere to post this but this is the most active site for users with a Blackberry.

so someone please help me with the calendar issue.

Hang in there!

This is a good board. Not everyone viewing may have an 8300 YET, or an answer for your problem. I don't, sorry. Just repost if it drops to far down the list. There are a number of experts on the forum and they will respond when they read it. Good Luck!

Easy Killer..... we need more details if you want us to help....this is a very helpful board, but you have to be willing to help yourself as well. There have been many posts about the calender on the 8300. moving on.....

I assume you have the calender sync'd with your outlook? Why not just set up desktop manager to import your calender to your phone.(import not sync to avoid accidently deleting the cal events in outlook as well)*syncronize > Configuration > Configure Sync > select cal then hit change, import to handheld.


There is a known bug with the calender and sync'ing and reminders, currently and RIM has said there is no ETR.

It isn't sync'd with any other calendar. its just on the blackberry because I don't feel like spending the money to get Outlook 2007 when I have Windows Mail now.. they don't use Outlook anymore as a default program. I have four computers so it is a hassle to sync all of that up with them. Plus, I don't use Outlook for email anyways since I have yahoo & a work email (using groupwise) that can connect through a pop3 server. no need for outlook. otherwise I would import everything from Outlook from the desktop manager.

I set up my email through cingular.com/blackberrystart because I have BIS. After I did that, I resent my service books. Then I scrolled down to read the activation message I get when I do that. as I was doing that, it froze and then unfroze and somehow ended up in my calendar on the main screen where it came up with an error message about how my calendar will be deleted externally and will be reset. there was not a yes or no with this. then my phone automatically restarted and I had no calendar entries. so thats why I am asking what happened considering all I did was add an email address!

I am using the BB Dimension Today theme.

no idea what happend. I'd say at this point you have to reenter your calender entries. It would be wise to back them up with desktop manger, especially if you arent going to sync the blackberry to anything.
