You definitely need to choose one or the other. I had both installed and they constantly conflicted, and it's definitely important to make sure the one you choose to delete is completely removed from your system. Once I was able to decide to use MS, which has been working seemlessly for the last year, I got rid of PM and everything was fine after that.

The syncing apps don't always transfer over all your contact information. First step is to go to the web site of the app you keep and see which information gets synced. For example PM will only transfer home address or business address, but not both.
Second if you can find a map of what field on your BB corresponds to the sync software you choose that will be helpful. If you cannot find a map then create a test record and put unique info in that field and then sync it. Compare what is on your BB to what is on your mac.
Good luck, definitely check out the threads about comparisons and I think taking a closer look at MS would be beneficial.
