Complete BB newbie question re: email sync

by Bill Osler / July 31, 2010 10:11 PM PDT

I've just started using a Storm2, and I'm still pretty green. The device is configured to access my employer's Enterprise Server as well as my Yahoo email.

I've noticed that battery life is pretty bad if I have wireless sync enabled, perhaps because there is essentially no phone signal inside my office. In any event, there isn't much utility to checking email on the BB device during normal work days when I have ready access to a PC.

If I want the BB to sync on demand rather than on schedule I can turn data service off and then later turn it back on again, but that means I have to remember to do so every time I enter/leave the office. Is there a better way to set the Blackberry so it syncs on demand rather than on a schedule?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
