Re: synchronaze time?!

You can setup NTP to synchronize the times between the computers.

You can sync with the wireless network, not with the computers.

Re: synchronaze time?!

In other words, if you truly want to have everything in synch, you will need to contact your wireless carrier and find out what source they use for synching their time (or ask if there is a way to synch your computers to them directly). That way your computers will be synching to the same source as the Blackberries.

It may take a few attempts at contacting the carrier before you talk to a person who actually understands what you are trying to do and can help you.

Re: synchronaze time?!

To summerize and confirm the above responces:

BlackBerry's will sync through their wireless provider.

Desktops can sync through either using NTP (as an external add-in for some OS's, or as the built-in network time service in others).

Windows 2000, XP and Vista will sync through their AD Domain Controlers, but you can also set them through either gpedit.msc, registry entries, the network time tab within the Date/Time control, or by using the NET TIME command at a CMD prompt to manually go elsewhere to sync.

In setting up time sync manually, it would be wise to select from either a STRATUM 1 or 2 provider. Here's a list:
