    I am an ACT! user and recently purchased the Blackberry Pearl 8130. Love it!
    EXCEPT, I can't find a simple and reasonably priced CSM program for the Blackberry. I am willing to leave ACT! software behind after 10 years, because I love my BB! My BB replaced my Palm which had ACT! for Palm installed on it.

    I tried CompanionLink to sync ACT, but all that does is copy my calendar and contacts into the Blackberry software. Once sync'd I cannot clear meetings or calls after they are completed. Also, I cannot schedule a meeting or call with a contact FROM the address book, OR, schedule a meeting or call with a contact FROM within the calendar. The 2 programs are not linked! I called CompanionLink and they said that is all the program is supposed to do.

    I have looked online at GoldMine and others, but these seem pretty over the top (and out of my budget) for me.

    All I'm looking for is some integration between the address book and calendar. I do not want a web based system.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I'm having the same problem and need help too. It appears that ACT 6.0 is the highest version that blackberry says is compatible. Which is great for me since I use ACT 6.0. Also blackberry says your supposed to use the blackberry desktop manager 4.2 service pack 1, instead of the latest 4.3. I've tried all and nothing works. ACT is the bomb, I don't want to give it up and will switch back to a Treo if necessary. But I really like my Pearl, so I really hope someone helps us.

    Try Chaos Software's Intellect or Time & Chaos programs (Chaos Software email client contact manager time management). They sync nicely with the BB. I've been using it for years.
