Default Backing up Blackberry to MAC computer

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
Does anyone have experience backing up the Blackberry to a MAC computer?
I only know of the free sync software called POCKETMAC but I can't back up with it!
Thanks,
Lisa

I'd like to know this too since I'm thinking of getting a Mac laptop.

Simple solution is to use Apples Boot Camp Software and load Windows on you mac. Problem fixed, thats what I do.

Hope it helps

Default Another Option

Parallels/Windows works also. PocketMac works, but a lot of folks have had issues, including me. I've lost contacts, overwritten new info/numbers with old, etc. Use at you own risk! Most feel a windoze based back-up is best right now. MarkSpace has a MissingSync product for BB on the way, hopefully that will be what we are looking for.....
