    I have been using my BB as my only calendar for quite a while and I am starting to think about alternatives because I can not see view my calendar while talking on the phone which has become annoying.

    Sure you can. If you need to look up a date while on the phone just hit the menu button and open the calendar. You can put the phone on speakerphone if you want to talk while looking at the calendar.

    yes you can view your calendar while talking on the phone. all you need to do during a call is push the BB (menu) button and scroll down to "view calendar"

    My BlackBerry calendar runs my day. I have calendar alerts set up that really keep me on schedule. With that said, I still use a Franklin planner paper planner too. I make a LOT of notes during the day and there is no electronic replacement for the ability to put pen to paper.

    It can take some work to sync both an electronic and a paper calendar but there are reasons and advantages that some of us need to have by doing so.

    I do have wall calendars (three of them, a Catholic one in the bathroom, The Literate Cat in the bedroom, and The Night Sky in the kitchen), but they are basically there to let me see at a glance what the date is a week from next Sunday. For appointments & such, my only calendar is my BB.

    BB calendar is one of the most useful functions for me. I can stay organized and sync with online calendar.

    yes you can. I can. Just escape to screen, and you can still view your calender while talking on phone.

    For as great as the BB is as a tool, sometimes I find
    it easier to write it down on the calendar on my desk
    rather than typing it into the BB. Important stuff ALWAYS
    goes on the BB though.

    The down side to using your BB while on a call is that the track ball makes a lot of noise for the person on the other end to listen to. So I've been told.

    The calendar feature is the main reason that I am getting a BB. I have to keep track of several different schedules and my nokia cell phone just isn't robust enough anymore. And I just can't keep carrying around my paper daytimer anymore - too bulky,

    I figured that had to be the case but I have never been daring enough to try it while on the phone with someone....Thank you all for your responses.

    I use a combo of the BB calendar and Google Calendar.

    I second the BB calendar and Google Calendar. Sharing out the GCal allows my family to add things and then I just sync up with it. One of the first things I installed was gmail and gcal. :-)

    I love my bb calendar. Since my bb is always with me, its so easy to put everything in the calendar right on the spot. Then I just sync it with outlook and google calendar.
