BlackBerry Bold 9700 won't allow wireless sync for address book

I switched a user from an 8800 to a 9700 last week and the address book doesn't want to synchronize over wireless anymore.

Info related to my issue:
- the user has the same IT policy as every other user that's working
- the BES version is 4.1
- the global PIM Synchronization settings have all defaults
- I've tried (more than once) the solution at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Handhelds_-_PDAs/Blackberry/Q_23024284.html
- I've done a device wipe 3x and reconnected with the BES

The problem seems to be that when I go into the BB's contacts -> options -> desktop contact list the option for wireless synchronization is greyed out and says "Not Available".

Everything else seems to work, including wireless lookup through the Contacts page.

I really appreciate any help with this. Thanks.

I have other users with the same phone and no problems, so no I haven't tried upgrading the firmware. Also, I was using this phone up until last week when I got a Desire and it worked fine then.

I upgrade the firmware to the newest one available, reset the device, and performed the enterprise activation yet again. I still get the same thing, no contacts.

Thanks for that link, I think that it got me a little bit closer. The enterprise activation was showing as completed beforehand so I'm not sure that was my issue but I tried getting rid of the Desktop [SYNC] service book anyways and reactivating it.

After that it synchronized a few more things that were missing that I hadn't noticed, but still no address book and oddly enough the BES manager software doesn't show a phone number for this user.

Something that I hadn't noticed when doing a re-sync of the desktop service book was that the Address Book item disappears as it completes. That led me to the log files on my BES which were complaining about the synchronization service so I tried to restart it and I get the errors with event ids; 45058, 20000, 16035, 56007, 16019, 56001.

The event 16019 has the description: "Failed to parse Exchange's XML mapping."

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that this is causing issues, but I don't really know where to go from here.

Looks like the only solution is to install a new copy of BES on a different server and migrate over to it.
