    When I add an all day event, I want "Show time as:" to default to "Free", but it keeps defaulting to "Busy" and when I sync with Outlook 2003 it displays my entire day as being "busy". My old 7290 defaulted to "free" until I upgraded the device software. I once saw another 8700c which defaulted to "Free" but I can't remember what version of the calendar app it had. I'm currently running 4.1.0.194. Will upgrading to 4.2 take care of this problem?

    Unless I'm missing something, if you have an 'all day event', the system setting to busy would be right. I can't see you having an all day event and being free at the same time. It's just not logical - but, that's just my opinion...

    "all day Event" is the title of the check box in the blackberry calendar application. I don't think (although others may disagree) it accurately reflects what that box actually does and how the event shows up both on the blackberry and in Outlook (at least the way I use it). When I add an "all day event" (whether "show time as" is "busy" or "free") the event shows up at the top of the screen on "view day" mode as a non-timed event (an event without a start or end time, simply a title with a bullet point) which is great when you want to remind yourself to complete something on a specific day but which is not tied to a specific time of the day. Hence, I don't want Outlook to show my day as being booked and I don't want to have change the "Show time as" field from "busy" to "free" every time I want to add an event of this sort. I hope that explanation makes sense.

    In Outlook, the default for "show time as" for all day events is "free".

    Version 4.1 of the Device software defaults to "busy" for all Day events. I upgraded to version 4.2 and it solved the problem. This newest version matches the functionality in Outlook (2003).
