RIM’s 9500 Storm runs on BlackBerry OS which is known for its great email technology. Like a traditional PDA, a BlackBerry smartphone can synchronize with your PC, swapping data with Outlook or Lotus Notes; the bundled Intellisync utility makes this possible. Of course, the BlackBerry operating system also provides robust wireless synchronization, meaning new appointments, contacts, memos, and tasks can be “pushed” from your office to your handheld (and back again), just like e-mail. That gives BlackBerry mobile phones a fairly major advantage over PDAs that rely on more-traditional synchronization methods.

This tip is mainly for non-Blackberry Enterprise Server users that use Intellisync to sync Outlook with their Blackberry. With Intellisync you have the ability to synchronize your Address Book, Calendar, Memopad, and Tasks. To make sure they are synchronized do the following:
1) Double-click Intellisync. Click Configure PIM.
2) Tick off which aspects you want to Sync.
3) Configure sync by hitting Choose.
4) Select BlackBerry Wireless Sync as the wireless calendar translator.
5) In the Intellisync window, click Synchronize Now.
