Exclamation Mac User - Plz Help!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey Everyone,

So I just recently bought a MacBook Pro and was wondering if there is a BB desktop manager for Macs?

Thanks a million!

-Unknownballa

P.S. If you are a mac user plz do state so, just in case more questions arise.

Cheers

MissingSync is the best I have seen at working with the BB and a Mac... It's not free and will not let you upload applications but in my opinion is the best solution out there for Mac...

Google "PocketMac BlackBerry" and you'll find that software, as it works well. Since I have less than 10 posts, I can't include a link in this reply (stupid).

MacBook Pro from 2007. The program works pretty good with iCal and Address Book, but it can be a bit flakey at times. If I need to install an application on it or upgrade the OS (which I just did last night), then I use the Windows flavor of Desktop Manager on my Windows XP VM (VMWare).

I have pocketmac and it works okay. Sometimes it doesn't work for me, but, when it does, it gets the job done.

I have a iMac. Love the computer. Hate that it's not very Blackberry friendly.

You could always try sending things through Bluetooth to your BB from your Mac - to receive files to your BB gallery you just need to go to Media and hit Menu -> Receive Using Bluetooth... and then you can send via Bluetooth from your mac... and there you go!

Hope that helps.
