Default Syncing 2x BB8310, DM 5 and Outlook 2003 is a nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Both the wife and I have a BB 8310 Curve, run DM 5 and both have a computer with Outlook 2003.

In our situation there are 4 possibilities to enter/change info, and that always leads to canceling sync, because of calender problems.

We have more than 5,000 entries in our calendar, and at both the computers we want the updated info from our calendars.

The moment we sync, the calendar part asks to remove most of the calendar entries, which we do NOT want. We cancel the sync, delete the Synchronization configuration of the specific BB, and re-enter all the sync settings for that BB.
Then we have to sync again, and this most likely leads to syncing just the last 2 months of the calendar entries.

The solution we tried is the following:
My BB only syncs 2 ways with her Outlook 2003, and only form my BB to my Outlook 2003. This means that I can not enter data/changes in my Outlook anymore, and only in my BB. We thought we had the solution, being: ruling out one database causing syncing problems. We are wrong.

What can we do to solve this extremely irritating issue.

1. make sure the sync option in the Calendar are set to sync every calendar event.

2. Make sure in the options of your BlackBerry Calendar it is set to keep appointments forever.

3. Check the "File Free" on your BlackBerry, if your BlackBerry starts to run out of memory it will delete events.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
