    Push software for BIS?

    Ok guys new question I think. I have been google'n and not been able to find anything as of yet. I would probably pay a good 50 bucks for something like this. I am looking for a program that I could put my wifes and I schedules, appt., and all calendar info, on the desktop and push it out to both. I know you can do this with BES or i think you can, but is there a program or is it possible with BIS. I have a storm and she has a curve. If you have any ideas let me know. TIA

    I looked at it a bit, but it seemed like you had to be connected to the desktop with your berry, and also didnt seem like you could use it on more than one e-mail addy, i.e.- we would have to set the calendar up twice once for each of us...or did i misread this?

    I think you have misunderstood it's services. Here is the link to it which describes it better in detail:
    Google Mobile | Sync for your BlackBerry phone

    There aren't any good free options right now. Hopefully google will make something like google sync to work with outlook. I used a program called syncmycal. It does have a free version, but it is pretty limited. The full version was like $20 i think. It worked great.
    Droooooiiiiiid!

    I'm pretty sure Google sync will do this fine. Google Sync & Calendar are both free, so just give it a shot.

    We use Google Calendar and Google sync here at my office and they work great.

    No, you sign up for google calendar online. And then download Google sync on your phone. All google sync does is send/receive changes made to your online calendar. Has nothing to do with email.

    It's not perfect but I found that more often than not it does the job.

    I still get the ocassional duplicates but besides that it does work pretty good. I will say nothing as good as MobileMe that Apple rolled out. That thing is better than sliced bread. RIM shouldn't learn from it's competitors because while google sync works MObileMe makes it looks like a 3 year old created it.
