    Yep.

    PocketMac SyncManager-> Utilities menu->Install Software to Device

    Not as powerful as the PC's DM, but works just fine.

    Ok, well I know you can sync. But I'm trying to install the new update software from T-Mobile on the 8320. I downloaded it from T-Mobile but when i click on it it just says the file does not appear to be compressed or encoded. Anyone have this issue?

    I think you'd have to use the Blackberry Desktop using BootCamp, Parallel, etc. to do OS update. I've done that and it works (with some incosistency in USB connection)...

    I'd love to be able to do the same directly from Mac without using XP =)

    When using Bootcamp or Parallels to run Windows XP, have you been able to get the USB to connect to your BB without getting a message about charging current being insufficient? I always ge this message, and Desktop Manager does not recognize the BB.

    I wonder if the new Leopard Operating system will help with this?

    I haven't had that exact problem with Parallel. But the connection was somewhat unstable...took several tries and restart (of XP) to get a stable connection.

    I have had a similar problem using parallels. I have had good luck with the following when the dm won't see the bb with usb.
    1. Run parallels/xp in a window, not full screen.
    2 with parallels the active window, connect the bb. Decline mass storagemode if asked.
    3 give it a couple of minutes. I've seen it take as long as 2 min to connect on anew mb.
    4. If xp still doesn't see it. Click on the usb icon in the parallels status bar at the bottom of the window, select the bb.

    That should force the connection. This is with the latest rev of parallels and xppro. I know parallels has someissues with usb connectivity. Getting in anargument with osx over who gets the port.
