    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~do a google search for POCKETMAC. Its a free app, works for all devices besides the Storm... For now.

    Easy to use as well. I use it.

    BUt will it allow for OS updating? My sister said she tried it and it wouldn't let her. That all it's for is syncing information.

    Oops... wrong discussion. Of course that's not going to help you, sorry. I had the same same issue a while back because I wanted to upgrade as well. But still haven't figured out how to do it without screwing something up on my phone. My other question was regarding themes ( at the above html link ) and mac users.

    Unless she is running boot camp or parallels on her mac... she needs a PC to update the os.

    That's correct, though you may want to check in with the makers of Missing Sync as these guys are the best at the sync relationship between a Mac and a BB.

    No, Missing Sync is NOT the same as PocketMac. I have used both extensively with numerous BB's and the biggest factor is that there is a support system behind Missing Sync. Try calling PocketMac or RIM...you're dreaming if you think they'll help you get through your problems in syncing. As well, there are several key differences between the two pieces of software

    BB for mac support is terrible. I am basically running vmware with a copy of XP only because of DM.

    you CANNOT update OS on a Mac, PERIOD.
    RIM announced official Mac support in Q1 2009
