    Pearl and Mac users?

    Advertisement



    As I have been unfortunate enough to find out, the Desktop Software is not Mac-compatible ...just wondering if anyone knows of any way to get the new OS upgrade that TMobile put out if I am a Mac user...?

    If you have an Intel-based mac, you can boot into Windows XP using free beta software from Apple called Boot Camp (search in the support pages of apple.com for more info). Once you're running windows, you can use the usual XP sync sofware and do the update without a hitch.

    If you have a an older non-intel based mac, you can try Virtual PC, but it might just be easier to borrow a friend's computer for an hour or so.

    Diamond, goto pocketmac.com Download the Blackberry compatible software. I'm a PC user, but supposedly the new version that came out to support the pearl has an application loader! It's a free d/l!

    I'm in the same boat. I'm having one of the IT guys here at work set up the DM on the pc running xp, and will upgrade this way.

    sucks that this upgrade is not available for osx on ppc.

    i dont know but does your carrier provide a service to update your phone for you?

    i have a Tablet PC (WinPro/Linux Fedora) and a Mac mini so i have all my schedules and contacts on my mac and update through my PC

    thats just me.

    try to find a buddy at work or do update at work or a friends house or whatever.... convenience i know but its not easy being a Mac user and it wont be for a while.
