Blackberry Bold 9790 (Small)The 15 New Bridge Street Diary system provides a facility that allows your Diary to be integrated into the 15NBS E-mail system and so in turn on to devices such as iPhones and Blackberrys. This lets you see your diary on the move and changes to it are reflected in almost real-time.

Devices such as iPhone include this capability "out of the box" however Blackberrys do not and as such an additional application is required to provide the full synchronisation capability required.

There are two applications which can be used NotifySync and AstraSync - both of which are available on a trial basis. Once installed and configured your Blackberry will synchronise its calendar with the 15NBS systems. Both applications also provide additional E-mail capabilities as well as the ability to synchronise your contacts - giving you a single contacts list to work with and a backup should your Blackberry be lost or stolen.

We have previously used NotifySync and found it to be perfectly suited to the task and have recently come across an alternative, AstraSync which will also do the job. In both cases you pay an annual fee for the software.

The trial software can be downloaded and installed through your Blackberry by visiting the sites above. If you decide to try both, only install one at a time and ensure you have uninstalled the previous one before trying the next.

When you are configuring your device you will be asked for details of the 15NBS system and your mailbox. The 15NBS E-mail server is an Exchange server and its Web address is mail.15nbs.com.

If you need any assistance installing the software please let us know and we would be interested to know how you get on with it.

Common Questions and Answers

Which do you recommend, NotifySync or AstraSync
We have tried NotifySync and it works perfectly well however there is no reason to suggest AstraSync will not work either. Give it a try and let us know!

Can I put items in the Blackberry Diary and have them appear to the Clerks in my Chambers Diary?
No, it is a one way process only. Entries put in your Chambers Diary can be shown on your Blackberry but not the other way around.

Are there any other charges?
If you do not already have the Diary synchronisation in place on an existing device, then this service will need to be set up for you (please request this through us) and a charge may be made by the Diary system provider which will be passed on to you.
