    I am sick of PocketSync and MissingSync. They are not nearly as good as RIM's windows syncing software.

    Has anyone tried syncing to google, then syncing the mac to google? Is this anymore reliable than pocketsync?

    I am also curious how much data I will use with this sync method.... I have a 500MB limit, but have never used more than 20MB, so hopefully safe...

    I use google sync. Works good. Just some minor problems with formating the address from Outlook 2007. Also use BlackBerry Media Sync for Mac to load music on my Curve and that is the only reason I have to attach my berry to a computer.

    I have been using Google Sync for a few weeks after giving up on PocketMac and MS also. The only issue that I have found is if I change the OS to a leaked or hybrid...you must clear the calendar under the options setting in the Google Sync app. Please note that you have to be running 10.5 or higher on your Mac for Google sync to work with iCal.

    New here but I have had great luck with google sync. I actually just use google calendar and gmail so I don't sync back to the mac and it works great for me. I don't use iCal at all. I figure this way I can access my calendar full-size on any computer.

    I did exactly the same thing and stopped syncing to iCal. This made a huge difference; no more lost appointments or duplicate entries. It just works!

    Very true. You do not need iCal at all.

    Does the google sync work two way? I added calendar entries on my bold but I didn't see it on my google calendar when I opened it.

    should update within a few min or something like every 30min. But it is not perfect. It does mess up sometimes

    I can't imagine that the carrier matters. It is not device specific, but you must be running 10.5 on your Mac.

    I use google sync with ical, my 8900, and my iphone and it works flawlessly across all three platforms. When I do an OS update on the phone or get a new phone I only have to install gsync and put in my info. A few minutes later I have all my contacts and calendar items. The only caveat at this time is that contacts don't sync with address book seamlessly yet so I am doing the export / upload thing.

    Haven't had any problems with google calendar. It's great because I share the calendar with other people on my team regarding scheduling, and I update it and they get all the updates as well. I just add entries to my calendar under a different email (calendar) when I don't want everyone to see I have a dentist appt.

    ok...I tested it out on mine first, by deleting all calendars. So it works on my Storm.
    1. The first time you open Google Sync > Options, the ONLY calendar that will appear is your default google calendar.
    2. Sync this calendar.
    3. Now re-open Google Sync>Options and the other calendars will appear. You will need to select each of them and then sync again. All calendars should not be on your device.

    Let me know if this solves your problem.

    Good Luck!

    Dave-
    I believe that the problem is with the 3 accounts as your calendar want to generate a separate calendar for each - I have 3 also.

    Here is what I did. I have all my personal and work accounts forwarded (funneled) to my vzw.blackberry.net account so my bb only 'thinks' there is one account.
    I do leave a copy of each message on the original server and I have to go and delete them later, which can be a pain or you can set some up for auto-sync.
    Any auto emails such as bank alerts, weather, mlb games starts, I send only to the blackberry account for easy deletion.

    I hope this helps.

    I have been using Google Sync for a month. Got a new Macbook Pro and PocketMac does not work on it. Exported ical to desktop and imported into Google Calendar. Worked. Two days later, my appt would not sync back and fourth. Did what google sync suggested. Wiped out the appts on google cal. Resynced. Have not had a problem since. Am looking to back up contacts on Google.

    I use google sync to completely sync with my mac. Once google comes out with an exchange type sync for entourage like they now have for outlook, I will be completely happy.
