Default Sync with Windows Vista Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

Hello to everyone.

Firstly, can I say that I am new to this forum and to BB's - never having had one until a few days ago when my old phone went to the great phone graveyard in the sky!

I seem to be getting with my 8520 very well apart from one aspect - I cant seem to sync the phone with my Windows Vista Calendar.
I have set the setting to use the 'default windows application'; which has partially worked in that my contact were carried over, but not the calendar entries.
I have set the calendar options to display 'All Calendars' but still no joy!

Can anyone proffer any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong.

That's because you can't sync it with Windows Calendar, only outlook.
Desktop manager doesn't accept Windows Calendar as a compatible syncing program.
Using Outlook is the only way.

Ok, thanks for the reply. Looks like I will have to start using a google calendar in that case.
I am presuming that the google calendar will sync OK as I have seen something somewhere that says it will.
