The forums seem to say that pocketmac sucks, and that the bluetooth feature does not work. I have been able to move my address book back and forth via bluetooth, but i would like to be able to sync regularly, and also sync my calendar. I currently use entourage, but am happy to use ical if that helps the situation.
Can anyone tell me how I should go about syncing my Pearl with my MacBook?
I spoke to a Rogers rep today (I'm in Canada, eh), and he said a reason I wasn't able to jump back and forth between Mac and PC was because of Mass Storage Mode. When using Mac and USB connectivity, I'm always asked whether I want to turn on Mass Storage Mode. I say yes, and it creates a drive on my desktop with my bb folders. I download into these folders, whether movies, pics, or music. When going to PC, before I connect via USB, I had to turn Mass Storage Mode off. On my pearl, I went to Options, Advanced Options, Media Card, and then turned off Mass Storage Mode. I then connect via USB, run the software manager, and it works. Hope this helps.
