    Lightbulb Mac Bluetooth Keyboard with BBerry

    Advertisement



    This just came to mind... being an avid mac person, and living with my berrry in my hand, do you think it's possible to sync an Apple wireless keyboard with a blackberry? I dont own one of the full sized ones by apple, but i was thinking i could save money by buying just one and not one for the berry and one for the mac.

    does anyone have the keyboard who would be willing to try and report back?

    thanks-

    For anybody that still looks at this, it did not work!

    I was able to get both my Apple Bluetooth and the little bluetooth keyboard that folds up to work with my 7100i.

    I purchased the Freedom Universal Bluetooth Keyboard and I use it all the time. I can open it up and type a lengthy email anywhere and it's very convenient.

    I turned the keyboard on, went to the phone to have it search for BT keyboards and the Apple showed up. Punched in the 6 or 8 digit number (can't remember) and it worked. This is an older keyboard and an old 7100i. I know that the newer Apple keyboards are slightly different. Maybe that is why you are having trouble.

    I'm not sure how you had the phone search for bluetooth keyboards specifically?

    To search for the key board you go to your blue to connection icon in your apps when it open hit the blackberry button goto add new device it dialogue will pop up choose to search for device wheb the black berry starts looking turn your apple keyboard on your black berry will find it and ask you for a passkey its usually 0000 but that's not working for me I am on a 8330 pm me if you get it to work I'd really like to be able to do it I found this post through google trying to figure out to connect them
