Bluetooth syncing will not work with Blackberry PocketMac. It only works (for now) on PocketMac Pro. Not gonna help us Blackberry users in the mean time. As for your USB port, sounds like a MacBook Pro malfunction. I hooked my 8100 up to my MacBook and it worked fine. Is the USB port powered? If not you'll have to use a powered hub, which would suck. Kinda defeats the whole purpose of a laptop.
