i just got a blackberry 7250 with verizon and i love it! with my laptop being bluetooth and the bb being bluetooth, i would think that there are things that i can do with it. i got them to recognize eachother, but now i dont know what else i can do... also, none of the software that came with the bb works on my mac, so i cant link them up. my other and most important question is how can i get games onto my bb. im yet to get a data plan through verizon, so i cant get on the browser. also, i wouldnt know what to do or where to go if i were to get on the browser. is there no way to download the aps (like from the site i found rimroad.com?) to my powerbook and get them to my bb? is there a software that will do that? it looked like all pocketmac does is sync your address book and ical from my powerbook. are there better sites for games and apps? thanks in advance for any help.

First, yes your PB and BB 7250 both offer BT but at the moment I don't think you can sync with it or transfer files, just wireless BT headsets at the moment.

Second, the software provided with your BB is all PC based so its of no use to you if you have a PB, not sure if Verizon has a built in browser as yet for their BB's but you can look into Webviewer from ReqWireless www.reqwireless.com

Third, games and application will have to loaded and installed on a PC sorry but at the present there is no work around for this for us Mac users. Myself I do so on my work PC.

Forth, PocketMac is an excellent solution for Mac users but as I had mentioned above it only offers syncing capability at the moment. Yes it sync's with MS Entourage, iCal, Address Book, Now Contact/Now Up to Date and it also integrates with iSync.
