Default Mac address book, pocketmac and PIN numbers

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry if this has been covered and I have searched but when I sync my BBerry 8700 to my address book on my Mac I lose all the PIN numbers. Is there a solution to this please?

Seems to be a known issue, you'll be fine with Entourage but Address Book does seem to erase the PIN entry. Have you tried assigning a custom field in Address Book called PIN? Just a thought...

I had the same problem with PIN and Direct Connect Numbers (NEXTEL) and Apple Address Book. PocketMac is what it is... a 3rd party solution. For what it's worth, Entourage synchronization is a lot less finicky.

You should consider a hosted BES.

Never mind figured out that I had to put the custom field in the phone numbers box not in the customer along the bottom
