Default PocketMac and wireless sync

Please Login to Remove!

I was having issues with changes from iCal & friends not propagating to my Pearl (i.e. it was acting like it was just doing one-way sync instead of two-way). Then I saw that you have to disable wireless sync on the BlackBerry for it to work. And sure enough, it works now.

But when you re-enable the wireless sync, it gives you an error message saying "you may lose any changes you made on the device while sync was off." And right away, all the changes made on my Mac are overwritten with old data from the BES.

Am I missing something, or does this problem make the entire solution worthless? What's the point of syncing to iCal and Address Book when any changes I make on the computer are destroyed as soon as the BlackBerry connects back to the BES?
