We have a centralized calendar and contact list in Exchange Public Folders and would like to wireless sync with this? Is this possible?

Note: You need to have BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed on your desktop.

Public Calendar Example

* It is assumed you already have a Calendar in a public folder. You need to have BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed on your desktop.

1. Ensure your shared calendar has permissions to allow BlackBerry users to access
2. Open Desktop Manager
3. Select "Intellisync" and then "configure pim"
4. Select "Calendar" and click "choose"
5. click "Browse" (at the bottom) and then choose the calendar in your public folder

Public Contacts Example

* It is assumed you already have a contacts list in a public folder.

1. Open desktop manager
2. Select "IntelliSync" and then "configure pim"
3. Select address book and click choose.
4. click "Browse" (at the bottom) and "add", then choose contacts in your public folder

Public Notes Example

* It is assumed you already have a Notes Folder in a public folder.

1. Ensure your shared notes has permissions to allow BlackBerry users to access
2. Open Desktop Manager
3. Select "Intellisync" and then "configure pim"
4. Select "MemoPad" and click "choose"
5. click "Browse" (at the bottom) and then choose the notes item in your public folder

Sure does.  You just need to install Desktop Manager and ensure it is configured for BES.

That sounds good. So if I understand correctly this works with Blackberry Enterprise Server? Also, do you have to keep your computer running? It seems as though if you have multiple people that need this you would need to install BlackBerry desktop on multiple computers and have them logged in at all times?

This works with BES and no you don't need to keep your computer running.  All you are doing is pointing your devices configuration on the server to look at public folders instead of personal folder, you are just doing it via Desktop Manager which is talking to the BES.

We have a BES and version4.2 blackberry desktop manager installed on the desktop. Made sure the following was done

1. Ensured shared calendar has permissions to allow BlackBerry users to access
2. Selected "Intellisync" and then "configure pim"
3. Selected "Calendar" and click "choose"
4. Chose the calendar in public folder

But was unable to wirelessly sync. Any thoughts?

Please be advised that this process doesn't work as explained above.  You can have a device synchronizing everything wirelessly but if you want to access public folders it has to be done via cable.

This solution doesn't work with wirless syncing, it comes up with an error

Synchronization is currently unavalible for

Calendar

because the application is configured for wireless synchronization . Desktop synchronization for the above will be disabled.
