Help with Calendar Please - New work place has no BES :(
 
I just started a new job and the company does not support BB. They only support Android, Windows and iOS.

I really don't want to change my BB9900 so looking for options here please.

I wiped my phone as I had BES at the old workplace (OT - learnt the hard way to store media on SD as I lost all my pics and stuff).

I have setup BIS as follows:

Work email - Only option on BIS is email. There is no option for Calendar or contacts!
Gmail AC - setup email only. There is an option for contacts and calendar wireless sync.

Setup DM as follows:

Work email with outlook sync. Calendar and Contacts to sync as well. Its the only way I can get my work contacts and calendar to sync (wired)

My ideal solution would be to have my work and gmail both sync wirelessly.

If I setup gmail to sync calendar wirelessly, DM does not me to sync my work calendar to the BB!

What do I do??

You're honestly out of luck unless they will supply you with a phone.

So, to clarify, I can only sync one of the calendars then through DM?

I was fine at my old place when we had BES.

Other option would be to go to Android or iPhone as its supported.

The new BlackBerry 10 devices may work for your needs as well as they sync via ActiveSync as well.

Would there be a way to test this before committing?

You would need to purchase one, and if it did not meet your needs, return it.

EAS works perfectly. I recommend to purchase Touchdown on either platform.

Touchdown is no longer necessary on any platform.

get a Z10 or a Q10 and use EAS if they allow it
