    Question Bold Now Supported Through (The Missing Sync)

    Advertisement



    Now that, "The Missing Sync" has now announced that they support the BOLD, does that mean that I am able to get software updates through using the program on my MAC and not just backing up my device? I would also like to know should I just install Windows on my MAC and use the actual disk as my main form of updating my device though buying a Windows OS disk may cost more then just buying The MIssing Sync program. Help!!

    Basically just use BootCamp to create a Windows partition on your HDD and use the Windows Blackberry Desktop Manager.
    Ive been using the Missing Sync with my Bold since august but all it does is Sync stuff, no upgrades no backups etc...
    So yeah Windows is the way to go.
    RIM did announce new Mac Tools coming in for Q1 2009. Cant wait!

    If you want to sync iCal, Address Book, Tasks, Entourage, etc, you need Missing Sync. To load new OS, apps, etc, you need DM on Windows and that means a PC, an emulator or Boot Camp.

    Can't wait until this is all done OTA and is independent of operating systems. Anyone know what Wireless Upgrade is in the Advanced Options on the Bold?

    Still find Missing Sync can't sync recurring tasks properly and adds them to the Bold one day too early. Really messes up birthdays when I call someone a day early. Nobody likes a premature congratulator.

    I used to use MS but got fed up with sync issues I had with it so I installed windows via VMWare Fusion and installed the DM and now use that. So much better than MS and many mroe features.

    This is probably a stupid question, but what is bootcamp and how does it work? Is it free?

    I use desktop manager for everything. I have parallels 4.0 and desktop manager works great. I have done os upgrades and they work without a hitch. If you have parallels 3.0 it Will not work. Bootcamp is fee, but you will have to reformat your hardrive and create two separate partitions. With either vmware or parallels no reformatting is necesary but they are about 100 bucks each. Well worth it in my opinion.
