Default Calendar Sync for Exchange (like Google Sync)

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, I'm new to the BB world and was wondering if there exists an app that syncs Exchange Calendar over the air to my Pearl. Ideally, just like the new Google Calendar sync. Some background: This is my personal phone and I've got BIS through Sprint. I want to however sync with my work's Exchange calendar, OTA, and not through their BES. Hope this makes sense and thanks! -D

do a google search for gsyncit. install it in your outlook. set up google sync on your phone to a google calendar. this is a very long way around, and updates take about 2 hrs (unless you sync manually before that and pay for gsyncit) but it will work just fine.

That's what I'm doing right now. It is a round-about way of syncing the calendar but it works.

Thanks for the tip on gcalsyncit. Another question: Will Blackberry Desktop Redirector also redirect calendar items and contacts to my Pearl, or is it just email? Thanks!
