you need to copy the files to /BlackBerry/music on a memory card.

either pop out the memory card and mount it on your mac using a reader or tether to your blackberry and allow "mass storage mode".

missing sync will sync with itunes but it costs money. it's worth it if you also sync contacts, calendar, etc.

something like SyncTunes may work also after you get the memory card mounted.

How about simply sending the file over BlueTooth? Macs have a superb interface for that.

Default you have a 8830

what you have is not a curve, but a 8830 World Edition from Verizon.
Thought you should know, and you thread will most probably be moved by one of the moderators.

i didn't think the curve bluetooth profile allowed for file transfer. hasn't worked for me, but i only tried it once or twice.

Did you pair the Blackberry with your Mac? Once that's done it should be no problem. My Pearl allowed it just fine.

ahh... you have to use "Receive using Bluetooth" in the media app in order for it to work.
