Default syncing my bold with macbookpro

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
ever since switching from iphone to bberry bold it's been impossible to sync my phone contacts.

If I choose to sync my contacts two-way I get a warning that my mac-based contacts will all be erased. How do I do a two-way sync?

Please help me because I'm getting very frustrated with this blackberry.

Also, I just got a bunch of updates installed and all my bberry-based contacts got erased--what a piece of sh*t.

My workflow is this: as I acquire new contact informations I want to be able to easily type them on my macbookpro, then plug in the bold and sync that info onto the bold.

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer

Best,

Ali Naderzad


PS: also got an iPad, and would like to sync with that, if any suggestions can be offered. thanks

I don't know about iPad syncing as it's really not designed to be synced with anything but a Mac.

As for Mac <-> BlackBerry syncing, always backup your Mac before syncing. iSync to your MobileMe account is ideal. Then turn off syncing to MobileMe to protect that data stored on the iCloud. Additionally, a backup of the BlackBerry via Desktop Manager on your Mac is a good idea. After that is done you're ready to do a 2-way sync with your BlackBerry. If data is lost on either device you have fresh backups to restore.

Mac <-> BlackBerry syncing is supported but not perfected. When you set Desktop Manager for a 2-way sync and configure contacts for 2-way, be very careful about the settings. Neither device should be erased so if you're getting a warning about that, quit and recheck the settings. As a Mac user the iPhone is ideal for keeping contacts and appointments up to date. BlackBerry syncing is only a year old (or less) and is just as tricky as syncing a Nokia phone or some other brand of phone. If you're going to use a BlackBerry with your Mac you have to be ready for glitches. I keep my Mac contacts separate from my BlackBerry contacts. I back them up to a GMail account created primarily for this purpose and for syncing with iCal. To update my Mac contacts I email the contact to myself on my computer as a vCard. It's not wireless and it's not ideal, but its easy and it keeps things updated but separate.
