You'll can run a Windows virtual machine on the Mac using Parallels or VMware Fusion. That is how I sync my BB on my Mac machine.

Yes, I should have posted "unless you can run a windows environment."

Thanks!

If there is no BBMaps on your device look in the list of applications. Go to Options >Advanced Options >Applications. If BlackberryMaps is in the list then this method will work for you.

I have a problem - when I try to download BB Maps I get this message:

Quote:
Error


Attempt to load an invalid file. Please try again.
I have deleted the vendor.xml file but cannot find the file to edit. In "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\" the only folders I have are AppLoader, RIM Device Manager, USB Drivers and Modem Drivers.

Any help would be hugely appreciated on this.
Thanks,
Ed

You need to install the OS for your device to your PC. You can get it from here:

Sorry newbie here from the DL site you posted for the OS can I just choose 8800 from AT&T and that will work for my 8820? Also has anyone out there run the unlock on the AT&T 8820?

The 8800 OS will not work on the 8820. You'll need to download and install the 8820 OS.

Default BB Maps not working on Curve

I have installed the latest OS for my curve as well as made the change listed above to show BB Maps, however when I run maps all I get is diagonal lines with 4 circles.
I checked my TCP settings for my carrier, which is Rogers. The settings were
APN: internet.com
username for APN: wapuser1
password for APN: wap
The curve is an unlocked curve from AT&T.

Am I doing something wrong?

Our FAQ for TCP settings shows Rogers as being

apn:internet.com
username
password

username and password blank.

Did you try it that way? Reboot after making changes.

Those folders get installed when the OS is installed to the pc. Make sure you downloaded and installed the handheld OS package.

After you downloaded the file did you double click on it to install it to the computer?

Try installing it again. If it prompts you to remove or repair, then select repair.
