Does anybody know how to set up contacts and calendar to synch between my computer (running Thunderbird/Lightning) and my Blackberry Pearl? I want to migrate away from Outlook because Thunderbird is superior in so many ways, but I can't figure out how to make the break if I can't synch my Blackberry. Email is not the issue -- that comes directly to both machines. It's only contacts and calendar I'm wrestling with. I tried Funambol, but that cut my Blackberry battery life by about 70%, even if the automatic synching was turned off.
Many thanks for any help you can provide.
