Can I sync the BB with Entourage on the mac.....?
Have heard can be loads of problems using BB with apple OS X.....?
What data are you looking to sync?
I have an 8900 and a MacBook. I don't use Entourage anymore, but have not had any problems getting information off my MB onto my BB.
The software that I used to get my contacts & calender data over to my bb was Pocket Mac. I then stopped using this 'cos I started using Blackberry Media Sync to get music over to my curve. Now I use DoubleTwist which gets music and photos across to the bb (and vice versa)
None of the options match BB desktop manager for Windows as a seamless app, but you could take a look at Blackberry Missing Sync. I was going to buy this, but found that the apps I've previously mentioned match my needs. I used Missing Sync for Palm, and its a very good product.
I use Parallels for my college course, and have not had any problems with using Blackberry DM with it, but rarely use it. I've installed Vista via Bootcamp just for getting OS updates onto my curve - it simply doesn't work when doing updates via Parallels. Also, using Vista via Bootcamp is a bit hit and miss 'cos the drivers that ship with the MacBook don't install properly in Vista - I've not been able to get wireless, the Touchpad and iSight to work properly under bootcamp, which is why I installed Parallels.
