Default synch is causing doubling up of calender items.

Please Login to Remove!

I have recently changed devices to an 8130. I have successfully moved all info from 7130 to 8130. But now when I synch I get an option to accept, reject or cancel the addition of calendar items from Outlook to my BB which already exist on the device. If I accept, I get a doubling of appointments. If I reject I do not get the new items moved from Outlook to BB. I have tried doing a backup restore then synching and when that didnt work I wiped the device and just did a synch thinking that would solve but I still get outlook trying to double up my appointments on the BB.
Any suggestions????

same problem here, i think. I have a curve 8300. And my calendar items are doubled up. I tried to "clear" the calendar items completely using the backup & restore functions in the desktop manager but for some reason the items remain on the device.......

Does it give you an option to resync.

I ended up just manually deleteing the double set off of my device.

however, when I synched to outlook, it deleted the only single items. It was not bad for me, I can live with it. I am going to try clearing it throught the backup restore utility again.

Yes, there is a solution.

First, synce your device. Second, from the Desktop Manager, configure your sync so that the calendar sync is diabled (so that when you sync in the future it will not talk with Outlook).

Next, from the Desktop Manager, select back-up and restore feature. Highlight "calendar" on the ***right*** side of the dialog boxes. Delete it. When the progress box disappears, wait for the device to finish actually wiping the calendar appointments clear. This is aupposed to wipe out all calendar items.

Now check your device. Odds are, a "problem" date or appointment will arise. An appointment (or series of) that did not delete via the Back-up & Restore delete process...it could also be an invisible data error. If problem appointments exist, delete them in Blackberry. Repeat until the problem appointments are gone.

Now, reconfigure the sync settings and bring configure them to sync Outlook. Now sync your device. When done, do a battery pull.

That patch is not available to the 8130 yet. The software version doesnt have a patch yet. The work around is helpful though. Delete cical files. it seems to work.
