Default Can't seem to sync contacts on Mac Address Book

Please Login to Remove!

I've read there have been issues sync'ing contacts on a Mac. Anyone have a work around? I'm running the Blackberry Mac desktop version.

Default As promised.

I've installed it also on my Mac Mini just to take screenshots; the delay was setting this badbwoy up and haven't even looked at my MacBook.

K there are a few things to look at.
1. Are you sync'ing with two computers (1 Mac + PC; even in VM/Parallels)?
2. Is it set to sync ONLY with this Mac if option #1 is answered YES.

Make sure that ALL Contacts are allowed to sync. Usually you'll have Home & Work by default in iCal/Mail (Notes sync)/Address Book/etc in the Mac. Also make sure 2-Way Sync is enabled and ENSURE that overwrite the BB is not enabled. As always mac a backup FIRST!!!!

If Home/Work or other is non-checked this could be the reason. Also note I don't have Contacts sync'd with GMail add-in like many others in my BB; so look into that as well.

No problems syncing here with BB Desktop Mac..in fact, I believe you need to go on Entourage, Preference, Sync Service and check "synch contacts with address" otherwise, it won't copy the address on your BB to Entourage...

Hope this helps...I am running Entourage, wasn't sure what you are running...
