Default Newbie with a PocketMac sync question

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Curve, and an iMac.
I want to sync my address book into the BB, but I don't want to loose the contacts in the BB already.
Do I do a 2-way sync or do I just do Mac to BB? Will this still keep the contact already in the BB, or will it delete them?

TIA

Make sure to do the 2-way sync, because the other way will overwrite one of the address books.

OK, but won't that make me duplicates of everything?

It shouldn't but it is PocketMac! I never had any luck with that software even on a new install on a new Macbook Pro. Only worked once then corrupted everything. I use Missing Sync and it works perfectly every time. Just make back ups of your address book before proceeding.
