If they are syncing their Blackberry with Outlook, the default is for a two-way sync and a relatively short time frame for Calendar items on the Blackberry. That is one common cause for Outlook Calendar items to go missing. See if that might be the case.

Another possible cause is that calendar items are being archived, but that should be easy to see.

also check what spare memory resources there are on the device, if its too tight, then call logs, calendar entries etc, will be purged to save the handset from being full/unusable, emails are normally ditched last.

I believe I have managed to resolve this issue by installing BlackBerry Server v5 SP3. We were on v5 SP1, so I upgraded to SP3, and since then, users have reported that calendar items do not appear to be disappearing.
