Angry PocketMac destroyed data, and support was useless

I'm trying to find a successful way to sync Blackberries to the Mac. I've looked into Epicad, and although their product looks promising, it only syncs contacts and calendar, no notes, tasks, nor an application loader. Furthermore, the promise of a stand-alone application not requiring Exchange seems to be "coming soon" for the past couple years. I purchased PocketMac for blackberry and it simply didn't work. It destroyed a large portion of my data in both contacts and calendars. I tried getting support for over 4 months, and they were completely unhelpful, unresponsive, and failed to offer any support to get it working. One day they just issued a refund rather than continue any effort to correct the problem. 6 months later I received an inquiry about the problems I had from a company representative, and provided (once again) my feedback and problems that I had had. They once again failed to respond or address the matter.

Any suggestions on a solution that actually works would be greatly appreciated.
