    Hi - does anyone out there have experience of using the new 8900 in conjunction with a Mac computer ? I have always used a PC and MS Office software (Outlook) for syncing etc. I am thinking of getting a Mac and would like to hear of any issues before I go ahead. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    I'm a mac user.
    Quite simple.... installed pocket mac; which you can download for free from Blackberries website, and just plugged in my 8900 and it synced with office.

    I had issues with PocketMac with the newer BlackBerrys. Love Missing Sync.

    I personally use bootcamp to run windows XP and do all my syncing/backing up there. Can't upgrade an OS on a Mac smoothly just yet..

    Thats what i personally do as well. But i only use Win7 on bootcamp for OS upgrades.
    I still use the missing sync for synchronizing contacts and all. LOVE the bluetooth proximity sync.
