Thumbs up It works

Please Login to Remove!

I just downloaded the OTA patch and it worked perfectly. The phone now operates as designed. Unfortunately, ATT tech support staff remains unaware of the fix (or the problem, for that matter.) Thanks to the members of this forum for the heads up!!!

Default How do I know if I need the patch

Hello,
I just got my blackberry curve from Rogers and wanted to know if there is a way to know if I need the patch for the calendar.

Keep in mind that this is my first blackberry so pardon any 'stupid" questions.

Thank you

On your look under Options >About. Look at the version number and compare it to the version numbers in the link in the first post. If it's any of those OS versions then you need the patch. Off the cuff, I'd say Rogers needs the patch.

Talking 2007 Calendar Patch from RIM fixed my problem!!!

This is awesome! I had just purchased a BB Curve last week and was experiencing the same problem. I went to the website and applied the patch.

Then, in a flash, my BB Calendar was able to sync with both:
- My Outlook through BB Desktop Manager
- My iCal with MissingSync for BB

I really am happy that RIM found a way to get this going.

You're looking at one happy customer.

Default Do I need the 07 Calendar patch?

Hey everybody, new user here. Just signed up today. I'm on my 2nd BB and recently bought the new 8300 Curve. Sweet phone. I bought it through my service provider, AT&T, here in the US (not sure how far out this forum goes). Anyways, I got it last week around 7/25-7/26.... I've been reading everyones posts about the calendar update issues.

To my point. Do I need to do this calendar update? Again, I bought it/received it on the 25-26 of July. I have no problems downloading & installing the patch, but after reading some of your alls horror stories, I'm kinda hesitant. I'd hate to screw the new phone up. I have NO issues with sync'ing between my work Outlook calendar & home Outlook calendar. I dont get any double appts/meetings....

Thanks in advance.

If it ain't broke ~ don't fix it

The following is a list of software versions with patches currently available:
4.2.2.66
4.2.2.67
4.2.2.75
4.2.2.81
4.2.2.85
4.2.2.89
4.2.2.90
4.2.2.89
4.2.2.103

Your version might be newer... I just upgraded to BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.2.265 (Chinese), clearly not one of the versions mentioned.

I applied the patch. It syncs everything fine, but for some reason it resyncs every appointment ever time. Not just the changes. Oh well. Main importance is that it syncs lol.

And after I blew it off, I keep getting sluggish performance and the hourglass popping up every now and then.

HELP!

Looks like the only way to get the patch is with the BB Browser. I tried it with Opera Mini and when I got to the patch link it asked if I wanted to call 4.2.2.67. Crap. I still don't have my BB Browser yet.

Default not loading...

I am having a simlar issue as posted above. I go to the site www.blackberry.com/calendarpatch and just get a "running script" progress bar that loads half way and stops. Then I get an hour glass and sluggis preformace on every app after I quite out of the BB browser untill I restart.

Any ideas? Im on a mac, and my app loader doesn't seem to function. So if I can get the OTA download to work that would be great.

Hi,

I've got a 8300 running 4.2.2.114 however i'm trying to synchronize the calendar on BIS desktop manager and it won't allow me to do it, i get the error "unable to complete request". I disable calendar synching and it syncs everything else ok. Enable calendar and it won't sync at all.

Tried to get the patch but it won't allow the update as i'm running .114

Any ideas??

Yes, this version requires the patch. However,if you do need the patch there are OS updates now that don't require the patch. I recommend updating OS rather than a patch.

This version requires the patch. Installing it through my PC worked for me prior to my upgrade in OS.

yes, you are correct. 4.2.2.89 does require the patch. I edited my post above. I was mobile and couldn't remember of the top of my head and couldn't look it up.

However, the latest OS for the Curve does NOT require the patch so that is also an option. Here is a link.

Is it ok to load the Chinese OS? I am running AT&T. I am not 100% confident on this OS, please confirm that it works.
