I've been fighting with this synching problem for 2 months since I went to Windows Vista Home and Office 2007. Today was ready to switch to iphone after spending 5 hrs on the phone with Blackberry yesterday. MS Outlook wouldn't show up in the applications to synch with no matter what we tried.
In researching the iphone, however, I discovered that people have had a similar problem. One fix for the iphone seemed worth trying.....there is an impression that recurring appointments and/or recurring tasks in Outlook 2007 are the hitch. I then deleted all of mine....both tasks and birthdays, et al in Outlook.
I uninstalled the v4.3 of Desktop Mgr for my 8800 and re-installed the 4.2 version that came on the CD with my Blackberry last September. Rebooted and hoped for the best.
The software installed, I plugged in the Blackberry and it worked just fine - synchs perfectly. I may try resetting recurring appts, but now I'm just happy the blasted thing works.
