Default Synchronizing a PocketPC and BB

Please Login to Remove!

I have been meaning to ask this and a similar post sparked action. There is this post:

http://blackberryforums.com/showthread.php?t=5456

regarding the Palm Pilot. I thought I would start a quick thread (yes, I did a quick search as well) to get opinions on methodologies for living in both the RIM world and PPC world.

Devices/Scenarios:

BB 7250 utilizing the BWC
iPaq 41xx

I would like to synchonize both devices - I could be talked into leaving the iPaq out of the equation if there were just a few more apps for the BB. Currently I am just syncing the iPaq and overwriting the BB. Has anyone run into issues syncing both devices? Any conflics or corrupted data? Any methodologies discovered that work particularily well?

Thanks in advance...

I use an ipaq and a BB, I wanted both to sync up with lotus notes, well I spent all day today with our tech support people because it created havoc. I was using cadenza on the ipaq, for some reason it just chewed up the .nsf DBs when BB tried to sync, so no more ipaq sync for me:(

Here is how I do it. I have Lotus notes because I am forced to but I use outlook to read my mail via "Microsoft Outlook connector for Lotus Notes" which is a free program from MS to read from your notes server. This allows me to use my Toshiba PPC via activesync on outlook with no problems and my Blackberry uses intelisync to sync with the Lotus server. Only problem here is that the contacts do not sync between Lotus and outlook but I just exported them from Lotus notes and imported them into outlook. Works for me plus I can use the much better interfact of outlook to manage my email.
