Default 3 users, 1 calendar - is it possible?

Please Login to Remove!

My wife and 2 daughters have brand new BlackBerry Curve 8530 phones. I want to set up 3 separate email accounts (POP or Exchange), 1 shared calendar, with real-time synching. All 3 users need to have add/delete/change rights on the calendar. It's the "family calendar".

Can this be done, or do I need to set up 3 separate calendars and share to each user?

Sounds pretty easy, but I've called GoDaddy (current registrar), called 1 & 1, researched Google and have found nothing. I'm pretty open right now - I just want to keep my wife happy

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe you can do this with Gmail and Google calendars.

Why not create a BBM group called "Family".
Then setup appointments within it and invite the family members to that group?! This way, when enabled on each users BB the appointments will be available for all to see! ;)

Sure you'll get the "appointment conflicts with others" but they'll be visible and not effect you're own BB's calendar appointments.

I've used groups before with some OK results. My main problem with them is that if I update my OS, I lose the group connection and have to re-establish it.
