Default Blackberry Over-the-Air sync with Outlook?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all, I'm trying to find out if there is any solution out there to sync Blackberry BIS wirelessly with Outlook contacts and calendars. I would like to switch from my iPhone to the Blackberry Bold, but the one feature that keeps me tethered to the iPhone is MobileMe, which ensures that my iPhone is always synced with my desktop and laptop computers. It does this automatically and nearly instantaneously, which is a huge make-or-break feature for me, as I can't always remember (or have the opportunity to) manually sync throughout the day. I've had Blackberries in the past and loved them, but the MobileMe feature made me switch to the iPhone and keeps me from switching back. I did some research on Blackberry Unite, but from everything I've read it does not sound easy to use, can potentially mess up communication between the phone and computer, and doesn't uninstall easily. Plus, I don't need to share calendars or contacts with anyone, or transfer files. I just need to keep all my calendars and contacts up to date. Any ideas??

I think there are threads that discuss the options out there...

If I happen across one I can provide the link. Otherwise search is your friend.

Two retail options:

BBerrysync - OTA Sync
ThinkPost Communications - Home

If you have access to activesync:

AstraSync - ActiveSync for BlackBerry - Connect a BlackBerry to a ActiveSync Exchange Server
