    I am having the same problem. It started about a week ago an seemed to coincide with Yahoo's upgrade of there website. I emailed Yahoo for help and they replied as follows:

    Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Mobile Tech Support.

    I understand that you are unable to synchronize your calendar and
    address book on your BlackBerry device.

    I'm sorry to say that this feature is not currently supported,
    although we hope to have this functionality available to you in the
    future.

    Yahoo! and RIM Blackberry are currently working on a resolution to
    synchronize your Calendar and address book to your Blackberry and
    although we don't have an ETA on the resolution, we'll be sure to let
    you know when the option becomes available.

    However, you may be able to find what you are looking for on the
    BlackBerry website in synchronizing address book:

    BlackBerry - Mobile Software - PDA Downloads & PDA Software at BlackBerry.com

    They have a desktop suite which provides an address book synchronization
    which may be able to import your Yahoo! contacts.

    I hope that helps and I'm sorry we don't have a solution for what you
    are looking for right now.


    I searched BB's website and cannot find any support on the issue. HELP!

    Sorry, I've been having this issue for more than four weeks and it appears Yahoo! doesn't really care much about Blackberry users. Not only that... even their own Yahoo! Sync no longer syncs with Outlook. If it did, at least you could sync Yahoo! with Outlook and then sync Outlook with your BB.

    Time to look elsewhere for email that cares about it customers.

    I just tried both BB and Yahoo! syncs and both worked! Let's hope it continues. Thanks to everyone who posted comments to the various boards out there. Maybe... someone at Yahoo! noticed?
