Question Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

Great to have access to BB forum and all your experienced folk.Could you clarify something please. I have BB Bold 9000. Using calendar on BB and trying to match it up with Calendar on my Windows Live Mail Account. BB says it is storing info on my e mail calendar but it doesn't appear to be there. Tried syncing calendar using program from disc but it would not recognise calendar.
Thanks

The BB doesn't support Windows Live calendar. You would need to sync Windows Live to either Outlook or to Google Calendar and then sync the BB with that choice.

Do a Google search on "BB and windows live calendar"

Maybe this will help: Sync Windows Live Calendar - BlackBerry Support Community Forums

Thanks Dubdub, gave that a try. Have Windows 7 and the only Outlook I have is Office One Note, but I could sign up to Google and give that a go. Instructions that I found were very helpful though and even I should manage it

Question Re: Calendar

Still not getting this! I can get my e mails from Windows Live without problem, so would it not be possible to connect to calendar? Do not have Microsoft Outlook on my Windows 7. Am I right in thinking if I join google and use there calendar I can then sync it with Windows Live and BB
Thanks

No.
Google and Windows Live cannot sync calendars.
You can Export your calendar from Windows Live, and import into google, but that would have to be done everytime you update your windows live calendar.

Its not possible to sync windows live calendar with a BB direct.

What I have done is downloaded Windows Live Calendar gadget. Signed up to google for calendar and display Google Calendar on Desktop in Windows gadget. Also sync BB and Google Calendar. Brill, quite chuffed for a silver surfer
Thanks for input.
