| | PocketMac with the 7130c
Has anyone tried it with this new device? It is the same vintage as the new 8700c, only it has predictive typing in place of the Qwerty keyboard (which I found too labor intensive), so I assumed it would work.
First attempt wiped everything off my BB and locked it up. I had to remove the battery to kick start it. It then reinitialized it, right back to the welcome email.
Next step was trying to one-way sync my Mac address book to the BB, at least to rectify some of the damage.
It copied the address book data for 211 out of my 1100 contacts, with no real pattern - some had home, work, or no email addresses/phone numbers, and it copied a smattering of each. But no duplicates - even though I set the BB to allow duplicates at least to see what would happen.
Thank god I use the Mac and Yahoo as the source.
Oh yes, another thing it does is hang forever saying 'checking for mounted Blackberry media cards' even though its only the Pearl that has removeable media. The PocketMac issues column mentions this but in relation to the Pearl - there is no 'External Media' menu on previous models. So you have to kill the Sync at this point, which could explain why not all the addresses are being transferred.
I am stumped. Any clues? appreciate your help.
