    Same here. Now contacts syncing is a whole nother issue. That has never worked quite right or the way I want.

    Like I said, I've not used Google Sync (nor PocketMac) but because Mark/Space cuts corners with their code, some contact fields on the BlackBerry aren't synced & you lose data. Worse yet, they don't tell you which fields map together. Ug! Hurry up RIM & make it good.

    Google sync for me has always been a real mess. When you sync iCal up to Google then to your phone all hell breaks loose. Such as duplicate entries, all day events get screwed up and so on and so forth. At least Apple has the decency of releasing apps that work well with windows. Were Rim just screwed apple users altogether.
    I'm with you there. In addition to hell breaking loose if you sync between iCal and google, you still have an issue if you only use google. All day events get screwed up transferring from BB to google or vice-versa. Birthdays that you have in your BB get messed up when going to google and birthdays in google get messed up going to the BB. List goes on and on with little mess ups.

    The thing that aggravates me the most, though, is that if you have recurring events in your Google calendar (i.e. class every tuesday and thursday for 10 weeks), when you sync your calendar and download the calendar from google, the events don't go in as a series, so if you need to change something, you either have to do it on google calendars, or manually go through and edit EACH occurrence as opposed to having a series (say, you wanted to add reminders on your BB, but didn't want to be sent a reminder from Google as well, one would have to go through and edit each event, or edit one event and make it recurring, and then delete all the other events..... more or less, it creates a bit of extra work.

    However, I'll test it for the next month or so, using Google to remind me as opposed to having it set on my phone and I'll see how that works out. Anyway, my rant is coming to a close, but, while google sync DOES work, I feel like it can improve a whole helluvah lot.
