Pls don't hate me for this. I am a palm user and just bought BB7520. I do not know how to program/sync the calender (amongst other things). With my palm it came with a calender via the software on my desktop. For the BB do I need to use Outlook then synch it, if so how? I have searched everywhere and found this forum. I know this is lame but I do need the help. Thanks in advance

To get the most out of data sync, you do need to use Outlook.
If you have a copy, install Outlook. You will have to import the data from the Palm Desktop then sync to the Blackberry.

Hi. I just opened my new 7100T out of the box, and since I'm very ill, have slept more time that I've owned it, barely 24 hours, than I've been able to use it. I will say this: The CD is the true key here. Along with that, use the Outlook that is a) either on your computer, or b) comes with your Palm software. If you use Palm Desktop, just re-install your PDA software, but CHOOSE Outlook, and not Palm Desktop. If you do that, all of your information will be moved over seamlessly, and then the software that comes with your new BB will use a program called Intellisync to synchronize your BB to your computer.

For me, this is ideal. I may very well use my "regular" PDAs through my daily activities, but as long as I just daily use Intellisync, my appointments (the most critical part of my PIM), will be on *all* of my devices - at all times.
