    Re: Installing a theme using pocketmac

    I have had this same problem time and again and have not been successful using PocketMac to install themes or apps. I utilize my Windows-based desktop at my office to sync and install apps. Unfortunately, Mac users are on the short-end of the stick when it comes to sync software.

    You may trying "MissingSync" and see if that works for you. I haven't used it yet but many Mac users do.

    There is also an update for PocketMac that was released this week that you may try & see if that solves the problem: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...kYfUFItdsdlg**

    Oh I agree...software developers just haven't gotten that far along with our rational thoughts :-)

    Good luck and Welcome to the "Stacks"

    I recommend using the ota (over-the-air) install method and forget about PocketMac when installing themes.

    Re: Installing a theme using pocketmac

    I use the OTA theme's to install new ones, but when it comes to syncing my address book, notes, and iCal task. Nothing sync's for me at all or evening installing an App for the 8100. This is pathetic why can't RIM recognize mac user's and make a seperate app like they do for Windows. There problem solved but i don't think they realize how many people uses macs with the Blackberries either too.

    They do realize the number of Mac users but we are a very small percentage and it's not cost-feasible for them to spend more time trying to create Mac compatible software as opposed to correcting and updating their Windows based software that is used 98% more.

    They did just release an updated version of PocketMac so if you haven't downloaded it yet, you may try that update and see if it resolves any of your problems.

    Good luck....

    Re: Installing a theme using pocketmac

    I understand that we are like 10% users, but with the current macs being able to do Windows now. I got the updated verison of poketmac and it still doesn't work. I still think they should make a seperate verison for macs because every other company does that now...

    Re: Installing a theme using pocketmac

    i was able to get pocketmac to sync to my bb without a problem once i plugged it in. i thought it would do it using bluetooth but it didn't. dunno if that's a potential solution for what you're experiencing. and none of the themes in the stacks are OTA
