    Hi all,

    I currently have a blackberry bold and own a small business, I have tried to install BES Express but it seems like it is quite hard so i'm kind of looking in another direction.. I current have my domain emails pushed to my device instantly (my email is one i created eg. @nationwidefinance.com.au).. But the question i am asking is, is there a way i can sync my calendar with outlook/my exchange without using BES? Even if its through a third party app?

    I am willing to try anything. Please any advice would be great!

    Thank you in advance!

    you have to get the plugin to use to sync it and make sure you set up the calendar for online access and it syncs both ways. I actually have my work and home going to the google calendar and sync to the phone

    So do I login to my gmail account, use the calendar in the and set it up for online access? Would you happen to still know where I can download the plugin?

    Another option could be Thinkpost ThinkPost Communications - Home

    I've never used it but I've read good reviews here on Crackberry.

    I'm running microsoft outlook on my computer and can't sync with bb manager. Every time I go to sync, it tells me that I need to set it up on bb manager and I do but it never syncs. Any ideas?
