I wholeheartedly agree... The BlackBerry is a great phone and messaging device but PocketMac has got to be the WORST sync utility that I've ever had the misfortune of using.
At this point, my installation of PM doesn't sync AT ALL with my BB -- I can only do a one-way overwrite from my MacBook, and even then there's lots of duplicated events on my BB calendar.
I'm going to be trying out a Nokia E61i to see how it compares, sync-wise. Nokia has released some plug-ins for Apple's iSync app -- if it works out, I'll have to bid adieu to Canada's mobile success story.
But I'll be holding on to my RIM stock for the time being, thanks.
