Hi Diane,

I help my colleague with some of the technical side of our work. A while ago we set him up with an Outlook.com calendar, which he was able to sync to his Blackberry. It's worked for months, but he always had to connect his phone to the computer in the evening to do the sync (because we couldn't get the outlook.com account onto his phone directly).

Anyways, his Blackberry calendar will no longer sync with the outlook.com calendar (on his computer). We tried going back into Blackberry Link to re-establish the calendar we want to sync with the Blackberry to no avail.

I don't have the blackberry in my hand, but if you can give me any ideas as to what to try, or if this is a common problem, I'd very much appreciate it!

Thanks and Merry Christmas,

Brynn

Hi Diane,

He uses a BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Is there anything you suggest I try?

I sooo appreciate your help!

It's hard to say if the problem is with outlook.com (they've had problems recently) or with the blackberry software. Is the calendar syncing ok between outlook and outlook.com?

FWIW, it should sync over the air using EAS account type, as BB now supports it. If BB doesn't like outlook.com or Hotmail as an account type, choose exchange and use m.hotmail.com as the server address.

Hi Diane,

I just wanted to send a big THANKS! We got the Blackberry to sync using EAS account type. My colleagues says "you made my day!"

Thanks for all your support - it really makes a difference.
