I searched but could not find an answer to the following:
I want to be able to snyc my "tasks" from Outlook 2007 with any model Blackberry. I don't own one yet, I'd like to make sure I can do this correctly before I buy one. I switched from a Palm Treo to a HTC 6900 which uses Activesnyc. The problem with Activesync is it will "truncate" or cut off the notes in my tasks. Apparently, it only allows you so many lines of text in a task. My Palm Treo using Palm OS and third party software called Keysuite never did that.
So, I have to get a new phone. I don't need to sync wirelessly. I just need to sync by usb cable with Outlook 2007: my tasks and my calendar.
1. Does the Blackberry OS truncate or have a limit on how many notes you can have in a task?
2. If you owned a Treo and now own a Blackberry, did you use Keysuite with the Treo and how does the Blackberry OS compare?
3. Does the Blackberry OS allow me to "categorize" my tasks in as many categories as I want? I have about 2 dozen categories and I need this on the Blackberry OS also.
4. What phone should I get if Blackberry will do all this? I want one with the most memory, etc.
There are personal, business and custom catagories that show on my BB 8310. You can sync your tasks using Outlook 2007. I am not sure what kind of custom catagories that you have. You can custom catagorize using Outlook 2007 by right clicking on the specific task and assign a catagory and these will show on the BB Tasks.
