Default I just remotely synced my Blackberry contacts WITHOUT A BES!

Please Login to Remove!

I have been playing around with SyncML for years now, this morning I was happy to come across the Sync4j project AND their Blackberry client.

I just successfully synced my contacts and calendar WITHOUT a BES!

Granted, it isn't push, so I have to initiate the syncing, but they also have an outlook client, a palm client, an IPOD client and a pocketPC client! They also have a demo of a web based PIM.

This is very promising!!!!!

Check out the Sync4j project on sourceforge!

How about a FAQ or some step by steps containing what you need and what you did? I am on BES for the job but would like to keep my home computer in syc with my laptop and BB. Can I wirelessly sync to two seperate sets of outlook contacts?

Do you have to be on exchange for this to work or will POP3/IMAP work just fine provided outlook is open?

I tried Sync4j as well, but didn´t get it to connect to my webmailers syncml-server, so a introduction would be very appreciated...

I'm really surprised RIM haven't already done something like to compete with the forthcoming Windows/Exchange threat... I can see how it would cut into the BES market but jeez... letting a third party do it instead?

You must not watch cartoons, your response should have been, "over here"! Thanks for the update...
