Question Synching with computer

Please Login to Remove!

Are there any programs besides Outlook that can sync with a BB? I don't currently have Outlook and don't really feel like spending $50 - $112 on it just to sync my BB. Are there any more cost effective options out there?

Default Warning

Please see my reply to BDunn7 in "Removing Specific Contact List" about the dangers of using Yahoo and Gmail. I understand your reluctance to pay extra for Outlook, but even then Outlook and Blackberry are not 100% compatible with each other. Read my message between the lines, and maybe you can come up with alternatives.

Not sure why you would say this. I've syncn'd BB with Outlook for years without a problem through different versions of Outlook and DTM and different BBs.

According to RIM, Lotus Notes also works. Unfortunately, as bad as Lotus Notes is, it is not free either.

Oh, good. I was afraid it was just me that had been mistaken all these years.

For example, BB User 1 to 4 are not shown in Outlook 2010.
