How can i install ACT 6.0 on this. I am looking to only synch when i plug into my laptop. When i try it install, there is no package for it. The only packages i see are for Palm and Windows PDAs.

thank you,

Last I knew, that was all that ACT supported. If you want to get the data over, you might try syncing ACT to Outlook, and then over. I used to have Palm and synced up well with my Treo. Our company switched over to Salesforce.com and they had no direct sync. I begrudgingly started syncing to Outlook and then over, and found it wasn't as much of a PITA as I thought it would be. Going over to Blackberry, I found it was even easier - even after we switched to Salesforce. The sync utility for the Blackberry is SPEEDY - much faster that the ACT conduit syncs.

You can't install ACT on the BB, if that is what you are asking.

Heh, consider the source... CEO. Don't get mad, but I don't think he got there by being the "most inteligent" person of your company for a very long time and working his way up. I've never seen anyone reputable in management work their way up like that. That's why most of them aren't so keen on the job, short of just concentrating on how much money they can get the company to make so they can guarantee their position.

sob, Act is "sync-able" with your BlackBerry. You need to download and install Desktop Manager on your PC, and simply use the calendar, address book, task and memos already on your BB. Then sync that data on the BB with your PC's ACT 6.0 application.
Download Desktop Manager here:
BlackBerry Desktop Manager Downloads - BlackBerryFAQ
You want the Version 4.2, Service Pack 2.

Read the description:

The guys at Sage who use Blackberry usually use Handheld Contact to sync from ACT! ... you can still get the ACT! 6.0 version here
