I've removed and reinstalled Blackberry Desktop, rebooted, battery-pulled, recreated calendars, but to no avail - no matter what I do, my Blackberry calendar will not sync to iCal anymore. It used to, but my MacBook died and I had the drive replaced, and on the new drive I can't make a sync happen. It goes through the motions, but in the end, there are no calendar entries in iCal.........


(PLEASE DO NOT suggest I get an iPhone. I've used iPhones, and I do not want an iPhone.)

Thx for any guidance........

iCal, iOS 5.1

    A few questions:

    • What version of the Mac OS is running on this computer and did it change from what you had on the previous hard drive?
    • Are you syncing contacts to your Blackberry and if so, does this work?
    • Are you using iCloud / MobileMe in iCal?

    I have had some really annoying problems too just lately and wondered if anyone could help you?


    I have an iMac running on Mac OS X 10.7.3. Have been synching with m BB just fine for a while. Recently, I noticed that my iCal entries are appearing in duplicate, actually up to 5 or even 6 times. I have run an iCal dedupe app many times but each time they come back!


    I need help from the MacSupport to understand if there is also a conflict in using Outlookf or Mac and iCal at the same time. I have recently made iCal my default calendar. Should I not have done so? How do I turn that off from being default calendar, if this is what's causing my duplication?


    Help, don't know where to go. Have just posted on the BB forum as well, as I dont know if a recent upgrade to the BB Desktop software caused the problem. Now I need to know how to downgrade that too.


    Thank you.

    I am so frustrated with my BB and I'm close to going to the iPhone but have to wait till my contract expires in August.


    Anyway, I had to disable iCloud, which eliminated my duplicate calendar entries. Then, had to delete all calendar entires on my BB device and started new sync with my Mac.


    in August - will make the move over to iPhone.
