Default Easy way to share a calendar for two BB users?

Please Login to Remove!

My boss and I both have blackberries (my 9700 tomorrow and his pearl) and it would be awesome if we could sync calendar items with one another and notes. We don't have BES or anything like that, so what if any options do we have to do such a thing?

I should probably add that it needs to be a free option and has to sync wirelessly to our phones, as in, I schedule something then his phone routinely checks and snags the update you know?

Do I need to setup like a work email for sync to work? Also can we both choose what items to sync to it?

I didn't know BB Messenger Groups also shared calendar information. My wife and I just use the "add recipient" option when making a new calendar entry. This allows me to share an appointment but it has it's drawbacks. First, if I change the entry after sharing the appointment, it doesn't update my wife's information. Still, it works for the most part...

So can someone give more info on BB Messenger Groups for sharing calendar information?

Your BBM v5 group chat allows group calendar items to be created, there's not much to it, just pretty straight forward.
