I would like "best practice" guidance on how to set up two actively used BB devices to synch with a single Outlook .pst ( contacts & calendar ) on a Vista machine.
I currently use a 7100t ( T-Mobile ) in-synch with MS Office Outlook 2007 on Vista Ultimate using DM 18.104.22.168. Works fine.
Wife just purchased an 8310 Curve ( AT&T ) and wants to synch with Calendar and Contacts. Ideally, she only needs a subset of the contacts ( those assigned to our "personal" category )
Before I jump in to adding the new phone to the "mix", I'd welcome any appropriate high-level guidance!
?? I imagine I have to install the DM provided with the new 8310 ( or will 22.214.171.124 work with 8310? ). Do I uninstall 126.96.36.199? Or will the new DM install as an upgrade on top of the existing 188.8.131.52? Or exist in parallel to it ( serving only the new phone)? If 184.108.40.206 ends up going away, will the 7100t be compatible with the new version of the DM?
?? Either way, I expect a field re-mapping will be required. Correct?
?? I wonder if I need to create separate profile or login in Vista or Outlook so DM will differentiate between our phones, or will the DM software handle differentiating between the two BBs, and manage any desired synch differences?
?? Can I reasonably expect that both BBs ( and Outlook ) will be able to initiate and synch changes to the others? Any caveats for synching in a two BB world? ( beyond those for a single BB sync with Outlook )
?? Any known Vista problems with this?
?? Will the DM allow me to filter contacts for synching using the Category field? or is there a better way to do this?
?? Any other issues I should consider?
Thanks in advance!!
