Synchronizing organizer data
Calendar
Previously, if you had set up and synchronized a calendar using the BlackBerry Desktop Software for an email address you added to the BlackBerry Internet Service and then, from your smartphone, you changed the calendar you wanted to synchronize, the BlackBerry Desktop Software didn’t display the error message: “Service for your device’s calendar has changed.”(DT 2418213)
Previously, if you have more than one calendar in iCal and you configured calendar sync, if you created an event in iCal and synced to your smartphone and then later deleted the event from iCal and manually forced the event to sync to your smartphone, the BlackBerry Desktop Software didn’t delete the event from the smartphone and you received a synchronization error. (DT 2333729)
Previously, if you configured the iCloud online service on Mac OS X 10.7.2, you couldn’t sync your iCal entries using the BlackBerry Desktop Software. After you configured synchronization for your calendar, you received the following BlackBerry Desktop Software error message: “There are no calendars for synchronization.” Also, the Sync button in the BlackBerry Desktop Software wasn’t grayed out, and it appeared that you could sync your iCal entries. If you clicked Sync, you received a synchronization error. (DT 2115620)

    General
    Previously, if you had two-way sync configured for your organizer data, and you switched to one-way sync to the device and updated an organizer data entry on your smartphone, if you then changed the sync direction to one-way to your computer, the change on your smartphone wasn’t synchronized to your computer.
