hope I'm in the right section of the forum.
I've got a problem understanding and handling the different calendars on my BB Pearl 3G 9105 (FW: 188.8.131.522).
The way I see it I have always a native (standard/default) calendar and when I configure an email account in my BIS-account I get a second calendar - I name it email-account-calendar. This email-account-calendar caused some problems by doubling entries and messing up my outlook when synching - so I deleted the cical service book for it.
I'm using the 3rd party calendar software "Calendar Pro" which uses the native BB calendar's database.
When I try to edit or delete an existing appointment within "Calendar Pro" - nothing happens. It's just not possible. Only adding appointments works fine. At the same time I can edit and delete appointments within the native BB calendar software.
After upgrading the BB's firmware automatically I got the cical service book for the email-account-calendar back and guess what: I can edit/delete existing appointments and add new ones no matter which program I use (Calendar Pro or the native software). But on the other hand: everything I edit/add in "Calendar Pro" gets not synchronised with Outlook.
So it must have something to do with the two different calendar databases. I set my email-account-calendar as "default calendar" so it should be the database that gets synced with outlook - but no chance!
I deleted again the cical service book for the email-address-calendar and now I'm back at the beginning: no way to edit/delete existing appointments within the 3rd party calendar software.
When I have two calendars I'm not able to chose which one to use for a new appointment. Even if the email-account-calendar is set as "default" (I can't chose another calendar because it is the only one showing in the list), outlook seems to sync the standard calendar database.
When I have just one calendar I'm not able to edit/delete appointments within a 3rd party calendar app (that uses the same database as BB's native calendar!).
Can anyone enlighten me how to deal with this strange behaviour? As I understand the device should deal with more than one calendar (e.g. business and private). When adding a new appointmet/task/note it should ask which calendar to use and depending on which calendar is set as default it gets synced with outlook. Or not?
Any help is really appreciated...
