Question Wireless synchronization problem. Anybody have any idea how to fix this? ...

Please Login to Remove!

I started a similar thread about six months or so ago. Nobody had any solutions at the time, but the problem seemed to go away on its own. Now, the problem has returned, and hasn't corrected itself for the last couple of weeks. Since I can't find my original thread, I'm starting this new one. Please let me know if you have *ANY* idea what is going on here and how to fix it.

I use my BlackBerry Pearl to receive my corporate e-mail through BES. However, it's also my personal BB, so I use it to receive my Yahoo mail through BIS as well.

My company's IT policy is the default policy, so there are no restrictions. We're a small company, and have one offsite guy who handles all our IT issues.

Since this is my personal BB, I have the address book, calendar, task list and memo pad set to “wireless synchronization = no.” That way, I can get my work e-mail through BES, while still syncing my personal PIM information with my copy of Outlook at home. This is the perfect setup for me, because it allows the majority of the BB to be personal, while still giving me access to my work e-mail.

About 6 months or so ago, the setting for "wireless synchronization = no” automatically changed (for the CALENDER ONLY) to “wireless synchronization = yes.” It would allow me to set it back to “no,” but whenever the BB was reset following a battery pull, it would go right back to "wireless synchronization = yes."

In the prior thread, people responded by saying that it was probably a change made to the IT policy. Well, the IT policy was still listed as default. Further, I called our IT guy, and he said he hasn't made any changes to our BES server.

So, every time I had to reset, I had to remember to set it back to "wireless synchronization = no." After a couple weeks, the problem went away, and this setting actually stayed in place.

Jump forward about six months to about two weeks ago.

I noticed at work that my BB calendar had sync'ed with my office computer. Sure enough, the setting was changed to "wireless synchronization = yes." As before, it will let me change it to "wireless synchronization = no," but upon reset it will change right back.

As before, I called the IT guy and he said he hasn't touched the BES server.

This isn't a huge problem, because all I need to do is remember that every time I do a battery pull, I need to go back into the calendar settings and change it to "wireless synchronization = no." That having been said, although it's not a huge problem, it really is annoying.

I have a BB Pearl, with OS, with AT&T.

So, anybody have any ideas? Any and all input will be greatly appreciated.

Did you try changing the settings using the Desktop Manager?

You would have to have it installed on your work PC, and connect to your work PC with the BB. Then, change the PIM config, and make sure you have set calendar to not sync.

Not sure if it will work, but worth a shot.
