UTORschedule: SyncJe for Blackberry
Installation Instructions

This page is for Faculty and Staff who are interested in installing the Nexthaus Corp., SyncJe client for their Bell, Rogers or Telus Blackberries. SyncJe is software that runs on the Blackberry which enables access to the UTORschedule Oracle Calendar. Using SyncJe, calendars, task lists, and contacts can be managed through the native Blackberry interface and applications.

Departments electing to use this software must assume full responsibility for its support.

CAUTION: We have discovered that version, (2.46), (the latest version), only works with the new Blackberry 88XX series of devices. Do not use with a Blackberry 7250 at this time. The previous version, 2.25, (see link below), is compatible with older models, which needs to be installed via the Blackberry Desktop Manager's Application Loader.

For installation via the Blackberry Desktop Manager, first download the SyncJe CL 2.25 For Blackberry file

SyncJe Installation Methods

For direct "over-the-air" or wireless installation to your device, point your Blackberry browser to http://www.nexthaus.com/bb/syncjebb.jad and follow the onscreen instructions.

For installation via the Blackberry Desktop Manager, first download the SyncJe CL 2.46 For Blackberry file called "BlackberrySyncJe-2.0.exe", to your PC, then see the Nexthaus Corp., Support Page and click on the SyncJe Client for Blackberry Manual, which describes the process on page 7 of the PDF file.

To prevent SyncJe from causing problems at the UTORmail post office or UTORschedule calendar server, the default configuration options [listed below] should be followed. Please note to type in the content found within the double quotes, " ", and not the acutal quotes themselves.
