I just bought a Blackberry Pearl 8120 (has wi-fi), which I love. This may be the perfect phone (for me). The keyboard is not a full one, but I can still type faster and more accurately than I could on my Treo or my wife’s MotoQ. Remember the Milk now offers a Blackberry sync, which works very well, as does Google Sync for my calendar.

But I can’t find anything for my contacts. I get a 502: Bad Gateway error when trying to access m.plaxo.com, and Plaxo is agonizingly slow to release a sync tool for Blackberries (which is dumb, since they are still the most popular handheld).

And although I can boot into Windows and sync from Outlook once in a while, I don’t want to.

So does anyone know of a good online contact manager that offers an over-the-air Blackberry sync, plus a sync to one of the following?

  • Thunderbird
  • Plaxo
  • Gmail

Oh, and I already know about ScheduleWorld/Funambol, but it is ugly and clunky and a pain in the arse, and I won’t use it unless there is no good alternative.

    If you find out, please let me know, I’m looking for the same thing!

    Will do. No helpful responses yet, though. I am starting to think it does not exist.
