    It would be great if PocketMac worked as advertised for ALL users. It's one way sync only for many users. Don't try to make changes on your Blackberry and sync back to your mac. Purge all contacts and calendar data on your Blackberry, export the calendar, then download contacts as vcards. Next import the vcards into AddressBook and calendar into iCal, sync with PocketMac. The second time you do it you'll need to delete all data from AddressBook and iCal. Some contacts will have all info, others not. That all cleared up when you export vcards and import them into AddressBook. It's tiresome I know… let me know if it works or you find and alternate.

    How do you purge the contacts on the BB? I've searched and searched and cannot find it. Please advise. Thanks.

    Yes, how? I have a similar problem. I used PocketMac to sync bookmarks on my MAC to my blackberry (8700g). After doing this I got a new icon called "bookmarks manager" on my 8700 with all of my bookmarks. So far, great. The problem is I am unable to edit or delete any of these bookmarks. Bookmarks manager has no menu item giving the option to edit or delete. It looks like I am forced to go to my MAC to edit or delete individual bookmarks there, then re sync everything once again to the blackberry hoping that old bookmarks on the blackbery have been written over by the new sync.

    I started a Thread on this called "Deleting an unwanted Module" in the RIM Blackberry 71XX Forum. I deleted my bookmarks with the Blackberry Desktop by using a PC, but this did not delete the Bookmarks Manager App. A tech from Pocket Mac suggested that I can delete this App again using the Blackberry Desktop on a PC. I have not done this yet. I've managed by Hiding the App. Then, again, there's nothing like deleting the App all together (if preferred). Also, one of the Pinstackers in the above-mentioned Forum suggested an idea that perhaps you can look into.

    You can import vcard, ical and vcal files by sending them attached to an email to your BlackBerry and use the vCardMaster to add them to your address book.

    Has anyone tried de-selecting the option in to include Bookmarks Manager in the PocketMac preferences, then synching again?
