Default Blackberry 7100g Bluetooth Connection to Mac PowerBook G4

Please Login to Remove!

I can get my BBerry 7100g to Bluetooth connect to my Mac, but cannot get the Mac to recognize the BBerry. I'm trying to get the 400+ contacts on the BlackBerry into the Mac address book. Is this possible? I'd appreciate advice from anyone who has tried this... Many Thanks.

Bluetooth on the Blackberry is crippled to headset communication only. My suggestion for syncing with your Mac would be PocketMac Blackberry Sync.

To add to finch's statement... don't bother trying Pocketmac if you're running Tiger.
The current version of Pocketmac is not compatible, but an update is expected this month.

Pocket MAc indeed DOES run under Tiger 10.4 as a standalone program but it doesn't work with iSync. It still syncs AB, iCal etc
