    Making the switch to BB - how can I do this:

    I have a Bold 9650 running the latest OS

    I have 2 gmail accounts (1 work and 1 personal).
    I want to get emails from both accounts synced to the phone.
    I want my personal contacts and calendar to sync with my personal account and my work contacts and calendar in my work account.
    I want all of them on my BB so I can keep track of my personal and work life.

    I've tried some different arrangements of Google Sync, and also Setting up my BIS emails to sync contacts/calendar. I'm just not coming up with the best case scenario for what I want to do. Everything I'm trying is netting me:

    Doubled Contacts (and each one with 3-4 copies of the same cell number)
    Doubled (tripled) calendar events
    My personal contacts all loaded into my work gmail.


    What's the best approach to just have simple, concise organization. I thought that's what BB was all about?
    I've carried Winmo and Android in the past and I was always under the impression that BB was better at this. So, I think I'm doing something wrong, or my thought process is wrong on this.

    Well, I appear to have solved several of the problems, but I feel like there should be a better way. Any tips are still appreciated.

    So you have both Google Sync AND the BIS contact/calendar settings? Might be the reason for duplicates.

    yeah, that looked to be a large factor. I ended up just having to aggregate all my calendars into one gmail account and sync with that vs. using multiple gmail account calendars.
