Default Blackberry 8700G on a Mac HELP!!!!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi I downloaded "PocketMac" and it works great with contacts, e-mail etc but when I download BlackBerry Freeware such as games, apps etc I don't know what to do! I tried in PocketMac going to "Utilities" and "Install software to Device" but I don't know what to do it doesn't work, does anyone own/know how to get past this so I can load apps/games etc onto my blackberry without having to touch a ::vomits:: windows operating system. Really anxious so please get back to me as soon as possible!!

ps. I have a iMac G4 with the latest version OSX & a T-Mobile BlackBerry 8700G

I downloaded "RIM Mario" and a few other apps but completley clueless on how to load them on (ps this is my first BlackBerry so sorry if this is a simple fix or been asked a million times)

Looks like RIM is hosting the software now.

Hi,

Research In Motion has just released Version 4.0 of PocketMac for BlackBerry. The instructions for downloading it are below.

I also wanted to let you know what's new in this great release:

I got it to work...kind of. I got a game and a IM program on it fine. But like 2 or 3 of the other ones didn't work and one of them added an icon to the menu but the program doesn't work and I can't remove it using the PocketMac Uninstall feature is there a way to delete applications on the phone, cause the useless icon in my menu is driving me crazy!!

also

Top Phone Features
Messaging
AOL®, Yahoo!®, MSN®, and ICQ® Instant Messenger®*

as listed on T-Mobile.com, When I got my Sidekick3 AIM/MSN/Yahoo came preloaded in the applications - but I don't see it on the BB do I have to download it? If so where? sorry for the millions of questions!!
