Hi folks,

I need to be able to sync with my calendar so I have the information available offline. The phone needs to sync with either Google Calendar, or Sunbird (which I have synced with Google) or Evolution (which is also synced with google calendar.)

I haven't been able to find anything that does any of the above. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be a HUGE help as I have to lug a laptop around at the moment just so I can take bookings for my business.

Thanks for reading!

I use a Nokia N82 with ScheduleWorld (http://www.scheduleworld.com/).

I also keep a look at CalSyncS60 (http://s60addons.com/calsync/), it will provide automatic sync between the phone and Google Calendar.

Thanks .nedberg. I had looked at ScheduleWorld before but didn't realize you can sync with applications. If I use the xpi addon for lightning, can I sync directly with Thunderbird instead of using them as a proxy? I'm a bit nervous about giving others access to my calendar.

Thanks again,
Jarlath

I use ScheduleWord to sync my Google Calendar to my phone. Don't know if they will sync with Thunderbird. I understand about giving them access to your calendar, but you don't give them the password!

I then use the GCal provider for Sunbird to edit Google calendar from my computers.

Oh, I didn't realize you don't have to give your password. Excellent! I think I'll go that route then. I love the phone I have at the moment (BlackBerry Pearl 8100) and if I could ditch my inch thick paper diary I would be a very happy camper.

Thanks again .nedberg
