    Hi folks!

    Just recently got myself a blackberry (Bold) and looking to see what my options are for syncing with laptop - ideally all mail, calendar and contacts would be synced.

    I have a personal domain and email that I'd prefer to use (ideally from 2 pcs) but one would do.

    Can I do it all through gmail?

    Do i need to subscribe to an bes/exchange server?

    Any advice would be great!

    You can sync your contacts and calendar with outlook through the desktop manager (DM). I recommend you get version 4.6 (4.7 has been reported to be buggy). You can download DM 4.6 here:


    You make your sync selections in DM. Either two way sync, your BB and PC will update each other or you can set it like I do, which is my BB only updates my PC. Mine is set that way as more of a "backup" process, since I only add new data to my BB and I sync it with outlook to backup my data.

    The process is automatic when you have your BB plugged in and the DM running.

    I hope this helps. Enjoy your new BB!
