Default What online calendar to use with BIS?

Please Login to Remove!

I have been using Google and Hotmail calendars to invite/accept/delete appointments for a while. However, they do not work properly with my BB configured in the BIS. My BB is the 8703e OS 4.2.1 on VZW.

When I invite/accept or delete to & from the BB and Outlook 2003 everything works. Here's the problems with google and hotmail:

- invite from BB to hotmail; email does not show calendar icon and opening email shows this and no option to accept.

Cal event
From: xxxxxxx (xxx@mydomain.net)
Add contact
Sent:Thu 11/15/07 5:27 PM
Reply-toxxx@mydomain.net
To: Wife Hotmail (xxxxxx@live.com)

- invite from BB to google; works and adds to google calendar
- cancel/delete from BB to google; email shows Unknown organizer and no links to remove from google calendar

- invite from hotmail to BB; accept on BB and places it in BB calendar; accepted email on hotmail from BB and it never updates the hotmail calendar; just an email at hotmail.
- invite from google to BB; accept on BB and places it in BB calendar; accepted email on google does not update calendar and has this:

This invitation is out of date. This event has been updated. xxxxx had previously accepted this event.

So I'd like to know if there's another calendar I can use or if someone can confirm having the same experience with google or hotmail.

Yahoo PIM is supposed to sync well with BB.

Thanks J, but I don't want to sync I just want to use the BIS CICAL features between calendars. Its strange behavior for sure.
