New Macbook Not Seeing Pearl 8130?!?!
I have a bit of an odd situation. I had a mac-mini (running tiger) which I recently sold off, and purchased a macbook (13" Aluminum Beauty) with Leopard. I plugged my 8130 into it after installing pocketmac and it didn't recognize the blackberry. Did I miss a step somewhere that I didn't know about? Any hints would be greatly appreciated....
I've noticed that there is a very specific order to getting the berry recognized on the macs... plug it in to the USB cable BEFORE you launch pocket mac...I know that if I do it any other way it doesn't recognize the phone...However since I upgraded my OS on my phone to 4.5 it is much better than in the past.. BTW I am running a mac mini with Leopard...
usually my BB launches when I connect to my USB to sync - but after having issues with pocketmac for quite sometime (including ONLY being able to install themes and apps OTA) I purchased Missing Sync about 6 mths ago. If you continue to have probs, pay the cost once, and they have excellent customer service.

im gonna have to support sugarspice's answer Missing Sync is a one time payment thing and its the way to go if you have macs and a BB.
Then again if you dont mind waiting a couple of months RIM did officially announce the Mac version of their Tools for Q1 2009
Thanks for all the input. All I can say is that I am just really fed up with Blackberrys poor support for macs. Again, appreciate all the help!!

Indeed the pictures of the Mac suite look appealing and i am also eagerly waiting for it.

This is a reported issue.
