Default Can a Blackberry do this?

Please Login to Remove!

I've searched everywhere but to no avail.

I need to know if Blackberrys can run a sync'd calander. Basically I mean, can I add an entry into mine and it sync with my colleagues blackberrys too.

This way I can avoid double booking and always know what my business buddies are up too.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated as the salespeople in the mobile phone shops are useless box-shifters

Thanks,

Paul

If your company is on BES then yes it is totally possible.

Default Bes

I presume that's some kind of 'always on' windows based software...

We don't have a sever, the company isn't big enough and I was kind of hoping that the devices could somehow be configured to do it independently of any backup PC

To sync to each other? Your best bet is to probably try using meeting requests. I don't know how well they work on BIS. They're great on BES though.

The only way you could do it is then. You could sync all devices to the same outlook. There is a new software that hasnt been released for use in the states it is called Blackberry unite and its what you would be looking for. But there again it need to be running at all times and have acess to the net.

THe 'unite' thing meets my requirements perfectly! That's sealed it for the BBB!

Thanks for your help too!

Or you can use the OTA sync as well from thinkpost.net that program will wirelessly sync everything you need, from calenders and contacts to notes and tasks. the good thing about the OTA sync is it wont add a IT policy and its all done wirelessly

Cory,

Can you use this option for one phone on BES (my wife) and another on BIS (mine)?

Meeting requests work perfectly on BIS. At least for me.
