Default Wireless Yahoo! Calendar sync with BlackBerry Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hello. I just purchased the BlackBerry Bold (previously have used various other BlackBerry devices). I've set up my Yahoo! Mail account via BIS with no problems. Under Calendar Options on the device, I see Yahoo! Mail with a field for wireless synchronization set to "No" and I'm unable to change it. I'm having trouble understanding why these options have been provided and yet I cannot change them.

I was hoping that by now the new versions of BIS server would support wireless calendar and contact sync on Yahoo! and some other web-based e-mail providers. Has any progress been made in this regard? If so, how can I sync my Yahoo! Calendar on my Bold as well as my contacts on Yahoo! with Address Book on the device?

Please note that I am looking for a wireless solution to Yahoo! calendar sync for two reasons: 1) up-to-the-minute updates; and 2) because I use a Mac and therefore cannot use the desktop manager application.

Thanks so much for your help!

Well I don't think Yahoo Mail has contact/calendar sync. You may want to look into Gmail. There is a wireless sync app at
