    Hi, I realize that this might be the wrong forum to discuss Yahoo Calendar Sync; however, since I am using a 9930 I thought it would be relevant.

    I am aware that since a few years ago, Yahoo has stopped supporting and utilizing a native process to sync Yahoo Calendar with BB. The Yahoo Contacts sync fine, but Calendar no longer does. So, because having my calendar available on my desktop and phone is important I am considering making the move to Google, which is a big hassle since I have been using Yahoo for so long.

    So before I make that move, I understand that there might be a way to have my Yahoo Calendar sync to Google Calendar and then Google Calendar sync to BB. If that is true and it can be done automatically, in other words, the syncing takes places on a regular scheduled basis rather than requiring manually syncing by moving files or something like that then perhaps such a work around will be acceptable.

    If there is a work around as described above, could someone please walk me through how to set it up so that Yahoo Cal syncs to Google Cal syncs to BB.

    Thanks so much, John

    ya you could do that, just make sure you share your yahoo calendar with you google name/calendar, then get the google sync app for the bb - add that gmail acct - set the gmail acct as the default and it will sync but make sure you uncheck in the bis options to sync address book and calendar when you set it up because it will get all effed up if you still want to use the yahoo sync for address book

    Thanks for the suggestion: Unfortunately, at this time the Google Calendar will not recognize the url that is provided by Yahoo so that Yahoo can share its calendar with Google. I will check out another attempt at a solution tomorrow: share my Yahoo Calendar with Outlook and then try to have Outlook share that Calendar with Google.
