Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone been able to figure out how to synch a Sprint BlackBerry 8830 with Outlook 2007? Sprint Technical Support says it cannot be done.

Try BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.5 or higher.

I've synched my 8830 and and 8330 with outlook '07 and I've used 4.3/4.5/4.7 the carrier won't have an effect on it.

Have you tried it yourself?

Default Synch Problems

I've only tried using Desktop 4.3. Sprint says they won't support any newer release and that using anything beyond 4.3 will, like.......blow up the 8830. I'll try it any way. Thanks.

Try a newer version of the desktop manager, Sprint support is wrong, the desktop manager will not "blow up" your 8830.

Are you using Outlook '07 as well?
What OS are you running on your computer?
Exactly which versions of the Desktop Manager have you tried so far?
