blackberry for mac
i just got a mac and my install cd doesn't install on it. im sure its for windows but does anyone else with a mac know how to make it work? thanx in advance
The BB CD will not work on a Mac. You will either need to install PocketMac (free) or Missing Sync (I love It, but not free) to sync.
You will not however be able to use desktop manager within the mac os..
Ask any questions you might have!
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
thanx man. what's pocketmac and how does it work? where can i get it?
Like desktop manager, just syncing is a lil different. Not too hard though.
Here you go. enjoy
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ get bootcamp and partition your harddrive so you can load windows on the mac as a secondary OS so you can use the bb manager software. That's what I did
MAC+Blackberry(anything)=ONE HAPPY COUPLE :')
Rockin' a 9530 on VZW(OS 188.8.131.52), 8330 on VZW.
[BEST OF BOTH WORLDS]
Too much labor... And more money to spend.

I've been able to transfer camera photos from my BB to my Mac, and I expect you can go the other way (there's a setting you have to make on you Mac so it will see the Media Card in the Finder. .you can discover how to do it.) Also, the Media card should be formatted into subdirectories for photos, iTurnes, videos and ringtones, which suggests you can download your own mp3 files into this subdirectory for use on you BB).
I suspect the only thing you can't do is to download applications onto the Mac and then load them on the BB. (I was unable to do this,) However, you can usually do this directly via the BB Browser.
Well, thx bill. for those who didnt know it already. Its pretty nifty/handy for those who didnt know about pocketmac.
Actually, if you want the full Desktop manager experience under Mac, you could always use VMWare Fusion (Parallels might work - haven't tried running DM under Parallels though).
