Default MAC sync sucks so what BIS sync alternative?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys I recently came back to Blackberry after a short stint with the iphone, due to it's ability to properly sync with my MAC.

Now that I'm back with Blackberry, I nearly lost all my contacts cause the MAC DM sync screwed up. Is there any service with any US carriers that do contacts/calendar PIM sync OTA with BIS?

Thinking I might need to go back to the iphone for the solid syncing of PIM, but prefer to stay with Blackberry.

Please let me know if you know of a better solution without the need for a PC to sync PIM.

Thanks in advance.

Please do not double post.

What are you using as your PIM on your Mac, iCal, Entourage or something else? Sounds to me like you didn't set up DM properly. I am having no problems at all with the Mac DM and Entourage 2008.

You can use Google sync for Calendar and Contacts, but that is not as good or as easy as syncing with Outlook.

I can't sync with my 9700 and my Address Book. Running 10.6 on a MBP. I have several categories in my Address Book and not sure if that's causing the problem.

How do you guys have your system setup if you can sync with your BB and Mac?

Default How about Soocial.com

You can sync both your MAC and Blackberry with Soocial. Just contacts. No calendars unfortunately.
