Not tried this personally, but the following software claims to do the same for a Blackberry as Activesync does for an iPhone:

Might be a silly question but what's wrong with the free version of Blackberry Express?

-. alternative : BESx (BES Express) is free.
-. There are several 3rd party solutions that allow this without interfering the BES: NotifySync (http://www.notifysync.co.uk), AstraSync (formerly AstraBerry --or something like that -http://www.astrasync.com), etc.

Prices: i don't know. Both offers free trial though.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hi,




As already suggested, the most obvious solution is BES Express.

There are some potential alternatives using a service to sync calendar and contacts etc. and use BES with OWA for email sync:
