Syncing Blackberries

My husband has a Pearl and I have a Tour. His is personal and mine is primarily used for work. We both use the calendar feature, me more so then him as all my work meetings and appointments are included.

We’ve run in to issues where we need to schedule something for one and other, or he is trying to get in touch with me and can’t (because I’m in a meeting or something), or we’re trying to figure out a date and time to do something or attend an appointment where we both need to be there. Things would be so much simpler if we could sync our calendars up. How do we do this?

You can set up a single Google calendar. Download the Google Sync ap, then sync both your calendars to that.

Alternately, you can set up two Google calendars, sync your individual calendars to them, then set your BBs to show both calendars on the same view.

Is your work blackberry connected to your Company’s BES (blackberry exchange server)? If so, you cannot share calendars.

However, you should be able to create appointments/meetings on your calendar and you should be able to invite him as an attendee, as long as he accepts the meeting request, the appointment would then be on both of your calendars. He should be able to originate meetings that you are invited to as well.

Ah, yes, it is on the BES. I’ll try inviting him to meetings and see if it works, but I’m on Lotus Notes (which syncs to my phone), whereas he has no desktop calendar and just uses the one in his phone.
