Default Blackberry / Mac Help Please!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

So i have a blackberry 8703e and my friend just gave me his 8830.I am on the Telus network.
Here is my problem, I have a mac and I'm trying to do 2 things, I want to put my address book from my 8730e onto my computer so I can transfer it into the 8830. I am also trying to delete the phone book off of the 8830.
I am having such a hard time doing it though.

I have downloaded the PocketMac for Blackberry program, and have put my address book from the 8703e onto my computer.
I just have to find a way to delete the address book on the 8830.

If anyone know how I would go about doing it, I would be THRILLED!
Thanks!

I'm assuming your using the Apple apps.

There are three scripts provided by PM. To get to them go to
Library > Application Support > PocketMacSyncManager > Additional Tools.
There you will find DataPurgeUI, EntourageRebuild and SyncClean.

Here is what I would do if this was my BB.
1. Backup address book and iCal
2. Launch DataPurgeUI and wipe the address book and calendar data off the BB. This utility just wipes the BB, not the Mac. But this is why you backup
3. Launch SyncClean and wipe the PocketMac files and the SyncServices file. What this does is makes PM think this is the first sync.
4. Repair permissions on the Mac
5. Re-boot the Mac
6. Launch PM and set address book and iCal to sync one way from the mac to the BB using the advanced tab
7. Sync
8. Once the sync is completed, you may set address book and iCal to two way sync.
