Blackberry Desktop Manager Syncing Calendar to Outlook 2000



Not too long ago I had the opportunity to take a look at synchronizing a Blackberry to Outlook 2000. They said that the phone tech support told them it was a really easy thing to do and if they had an onsite computer technician they could probably click a couple options and have it set up in less than ten minutes.

Well – they were using Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.3 and had Outlook 2000 which is NOT supported under Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.3

!

The last version of Blackberry Desktop Manager to support Outlook 2000 synchronization is version 4.2 so…. if you’re trying to do that, you need to look for version 4.2 I started the download (20 minute download) and then started talking about some of the other options. (Yahoo Calendar being the primary one.)

I expressed some concern over device compatibility (this was a new phone and I know one of the main version increase reasons for some sync software is compatibility with more devices.) Before the download was finished they were signed up with a Yahoo Calendar account, loved the idea of being able to edit it from either computer they had and then sync to the blackberry through the version 4.3 of their Desktop software.

Not quite ten minutes – you would think that the phone support would have known that you couldn’t “get there from here”.
