In other words, MobileMe works fantastic.
For contacts, I use Google Sync to sync my calendar/contacts to my device, and I use other programs on my Windows and Mac machines to sync MobileMe to my Google account. Hassle-filled workaround, but works flawlessly.
I had Google Sync just for my calendar on my iPhone. Does the calendar function work just the same on the Bold? What about MobileMe contacts? Can you sync those to the Bold as well?
This is what I had on my iPhone..
MobileMe of course, but didn't use the Calendar due to its lack of reoccurring events like Google Calendar. I don't use Google Contacts cause it would just create a mess (and I don't care for my Google Contacts anyways since it's not my primary email).

That's kinda sweet!
So if you delete an email on your BB device, it doesn't reflect on MobileMe web? You have to delete it again while logged on the site?
